Because I obviously disagree with what you consider the legitimate function of government. The social compact empowers the government with the authority to defend life, liberty, and property. If you can't frame a government action within that context I disagree with it. It applies differently from the Federal level down to the local. If your community wants the government to sanction marriage that's fine with me provided its within the equal protection clause; I don't have to be a member of that community. However, the further you get from the community level the more restricted the government must be otherwise you end up with a federal government like the one you constantly bitch about on here.
I just find it strange that you are so anti-marriage and find no common good for having these laws.

Pretty sure I'm to blame for the obsession about Fox since I happen to like O'Reilly and haven't been shy about saying so.
Been an O'Reilly Factor fan for more than a decade though - almost since the very beginning.
Don't watch much other Fox shows either - maybe once in a while or when it's a special event being covered.
I can't say much about things Fox because I'm not there but from what I read about O'Reilly, he is extremely popular.

And those snippets of him on YouTube are appealing:]

That post wasn't about "standards of care", it was about admitting privileges.
They're not trying to apply standards evenly in TX, they're trying to force abortions into surgical centers while not requiring the same for other surgical procedures routinely performed in clinics. I asked Nobama about this several pages ago, he never answered.
What other surgical procedures comparable to abortion are "routinely performed in clinics"?

And don't give us that "lancing a boil" crap.

Abortions should be performed in hospital outpatient clinics.

That isn't what your quote states
"THA agrees that women should receive high-quality care and that physicians should be held accountable for acts that violate their license. However, a requirement that physicians who perform one particular outpatient procedure, abortion, be privileged at a hospital is not the appropriate way to accomplish these goals. A hospital’s granting privileges to a physician serves to assure the hospital that the physician has the appropriate qualifications to provide services to patients in the hospital. Thousands of physicians operate clinics and provide services in those clinics but do not have hospital admitting privileges. Requiring a hospital to grant admitting privileges to physicians who do not provide services inside the hospital is time-consuming and expensive for the hospital and does not serve the purpose for which privileges were intended; rather, the Texas Medical Board is the appropriate agency to address whether physicians are delivering appropriate care to patients, as the TMB regulates all physicians. Hospitals should not be required to assume responsibility for the qualifications of physicians who do not practice in the hospital."
Notice it wasn't a reply to anyone? I was introducing a new, related topic to the discussion I was having with Nobama.

Your dumb is impressively persistent.

The implication is that hospitals want nothing to do with abortion clinics and consider many of their physicians to be less than qualified.
So, how do these hospitals feel about botched abortions being dumped on their emergency rooms because the abortion clinics lack proper personnel, facilities, and equipment?
Why not perform abortions in hospital outpatients clinics, where all the physicians already have admitting privileges?
Evidently the Texas Hospital Association opposes the legislation. Any other answers you want you'll have to take up with them.

Ahh, you goobers with your hypocritical "less government" keep me plenty busy. Some particular outrages by the left get me to post about them here but the left hasn't been the side touting "less government" when they increase it.
I would prefer a mostly NO government but understand that most people aren't like me and are dependent on some measure of government. All I would ask would be that the government act within the confines of the Constitution, it IS the law and adherence to it is the government's foundation for legitimacy.
What you are claiming as hypocrisy is a whole bunch of illegitimate straw men that you have created so far today-

Applying the same standards to abortion clinics as other out-patient clinics is creating new regulations -not true.

Marriage laws despite being part of our and other nation's laws for centuries all of sudden becomes "Big Government" because of your interpretation of the constitution-no court cases to back it up.

So are you in favor of government granting contractual rights in marriage, or not?
Galt is not clear on your position.
If you want the government to arbitrate the dissolution of a marriage contract I can live with that. I personally think private arbitration is better but I tend to think most things are better performed by the private sector.

You were the moron claiming the law was forcing abortion clinics into the hospital which was NOT supported by your article.

Is this another straw man trying to deflect from your misstatement/LIE?
