Probably explains how you can justify (to yourself at least) stealing all American women's civil rights out from under them like a thief in the night.
Okay, now how did I steal all american women's ivil rights out from under them? Surely you jest.

Irresponsible behavior is a liberal trait? BS.
Pornography dates back before politics, simp.
Hollywood is run by bankers and accountants, two groups not known for liberal tendencies.
HIV began among heteros in africa, who irresponsibly spread it to gays.
You're not my brother; I have three already, and they are rational, intelligent men. You're just another hetero coward, whimpering about people who aren't exactly like yourself. And THAT is being "really small."

Start with irresponsible behavior, move onto pornography, follyhood subversion and decadence, the people that champion your petty fetty, hiv/aids, who originally had the most numbers, who they passed it onto, with delight. It sure as hell isn't Muslims and Christains championing it. Regressive liberalism IS the democratic party you dork!
Worse than cancer itself.

Like any queer is qualified to speak of any parenting since either so called relationship lacks the proper 'balance and structure' that only a male and female can provide. More importantly, all children, when the state is involved, should be provided and afforded the basic human rights to a FEMALE mother for compassion, nurtuting, and bonding that ONLY a female mother can provide in the child's most indelible years of their lives. It has already been proven detrimental in a 'single' parent home, which is a same sex home, since there is no opposite sex.

" More importantly, all children, when the state is involved, should be provided and afforded the basic human rights to a FEMALE mother for compassion, nurtuting, and bonding that ONLY a female mother can provide in the child's most indelible years of their lives."

What if the state isn't involved? What about the child whose mother has died?

"It has already been proven detrimental in a 'single' parent home, which is a same sex home, since there is no opposite sex."

Just because there is no opposit sex within the home does not mean that the opposit sex is not involved in the child's life. Is it better to have a mother and a father that neglects the child, or two of the same sex that love that child?

How would we know? Gosnell wasn't outed until there was a drug bust. If that hadn't happened he would still be killing, ignored by thef government in the interest of "choice", and ignored by the NAF because it wasn't their "job" to report him.
We know that Gosnell wasn't typical, just as we know that the majority of medical facilities operate within health guidelines. They are all routinely inspected, at least they are in my state. Abortion providers are not treated differently than any other health clinic, here. Maybe you should campaign for better state regulations and practices in your state.

I can only hope that you are right, but I think that there are more where he came from.

There are substandard health clinics of all types. Why are you more worried about abortion providers than you are about your local hospital very possibly being guilty of spreading staph, c-diff and MRSA to their patients? The latter is a huge problem. I'm surprised you don't know about it.

1) Are you're saying that I shouldn't care about safety of abortion "clinics"?

2) Who says that I ignore the same problems in other healthcare facilities?

Here's a second:
"Semika Shaw was "just coming into her own as a young woman," Davidson said, when she died in 2002 from an infection caused by a botched abortion in Gosnell's West Philadelphia clinic."
http://articles.philly.com/2011-12-16/news/30...
"I'm saying there were alot more powerful people that could have and should have closed him down long before the NAF entered that facility."
I don't disagree, but here's their mission statement:
"The mission of the National Abortion Federation is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women."
http://www.prochoice.org/about_naf/mission.ht...
I guess that they forgot about the safe part.
But but but. It is not their role to routinely inspect all abortion providers Sue. It is not their role to report to the state, or federal authorities of their findings. It is only their responsibility to keep abortion facilities like Gosnells out of the NAF and they did that when they rejected his application. They are not criminally responsible no matter how many "buts" you come with. Two women died? Both died before the NAF was involved. How many died after the inspection?

OK, bad example. Try this one:
Your sister is planning to use a birthing center. This birthing center had been inspected by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, and they found conditions similar to Gosnell's "clinic"; anesthia being administered by untrained people, dirty conditions, emergency equipment not usable, etc-none of this reported to the proper authorities. Your sister dies and her baby is killed. Do you think that the American College of Nurse-Midwives would be at all responsible?
Well of course Sue, but here's the point you're missing. The ACNM inspected the facility before my sister died not after. Big difference.

And why was that?
"Instead, the Pennsylvania
Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion
clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of
administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that
inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions. Better to leave
clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay."

Because of politics, I don't disagree with you.

What is the importance of arguing over the length? A point Katie made to you a few posts back. Whether it's 6 inches long, 11 inches or it was or wasn't held in somebody's arms is not important. You could care less. You would rather talk about Foo which is my point.

If I'm wrong, good. In that case, you know that it's far more likely that an unsafe family clinic will have an effect on your community, than an abortion provider. Of course, it doesn't have the shock value of Gosnell, does it?

OK, so the NAF is really just a country club for abortionists. Thanks for clearing that up.
