Once again Carol you seem to be operating under the delusion that simply banning these procedures will make them go away. They won't. The result would be even more criminals like Kermit Gosnell operating outside the law. Before you go condemning anyone for accessing these services consider the plight of this woman;
Lauren S., a married mother of a toddler in a small town in northern New Mexico, was 19 weeks pregnant in October when an ultrasound showed very bad news for her baby. The doctor said his brain was not forming properly and that even if he survived birth, which was unlikely, he would never be able to breathe on his own.
"We would have done anything if we could have kept him," Lauren told The Huffington Post in an interview. "It didn't matter when we thought that he might have health issues that would require tons of brain surgeries, of if he couldn't walk -- we didn't care. We loved him, but he had no chance of living."
Lauren, who withheld her last name for privacy reasons, was also very sick. She had to have a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line for most of her pregnancy due to severe nausea and dehydration, and the doctor told her that the birth of the baby would be dangerous for her body because its head had become so enlarged.
She and her husband made the difficult decision to end her pregnancy, but they faced several logistical obstacles that pushed the procedure past the 20th week of pregnancy. She had to travel two hours to the nearest abortion provider in Albuquerque -- her town has one OBGYN and zero abortion clinics -- and she had to find someone to care for her 2-year-old son for several days.
"By that point I was 20 weeks and a few days along," she said. "I was induced on a Thursday, and he was born on a Saturday morning. We spent the whole day with him, holding him, and when I was discharged that night, we drove him to the funeral home to drop him off and say goodbye."
The ban made an exception for situations in which the mother would die without the abortion, but has no exceptions for fetal anomalies discovered late in the pregnancy, for situations in which the mother's health is severely affected by the pregnancy, or for victims of rape or incest.
do whatever you choose to your children, including black genocide, as long as you don't ask others to pay for it...

Good Morning again to all my topix OBAMABOTS!!!
As you all can see I have been up all night into the wee small hours maniacally judging your posts and chit-chatting back and forth to myself using many of my favorite sockpuppets!! A "labor of love" though tiring!! I had to change my depends three times last night but it was worth every diaper as it was challenging and exciting!! I and most of my sockpuppets will be on board all day today making idiotic and mentally deranged comments, the sole purpose being to harass and feebly attempt to insult the legitimate posters who use this forum.
ATTENTION!!!! I have again revived one of my favorite sockpuppet creations one more time from the from the bottomless pit of my sockpuppet closet, "Homer"!!!
Please all, welcome him with some of that Topix love!!!
I will also be judging your posts all day. I plan to be here for the entire day and night with my sockpuppets so get ready for an all out judgit blowout shitshow!!!! Please JOIN in!! I will give you a head start if needed. I enjoy spending the day here giving out judgits to anyone who doesn't agree with me and I like to think I have full control of this thread!!! I consider it "mine"!!!!!!
And not it appears that it's time for another time out and some much needed quality time spent in my hydrotherapy bath, the tranquilizing "chair" and some gyroscope therapy treatment. I think I over did with the judgits and my sockpuppets all night long. I got overly excited and need to take a breather. These depends are pretty shot too!! Carry on the marathon judgit tourney without me till I return!
As usual I will share a couple of my secrets with my topix friends:
As I have revealed, if you want to get an edge in the judgit race, doubling up on the industrial strength depends are a must. And constipating foods are a big help!! I recommend cheese and lots of it!! Multiple IP addresses are a must as well!!!!
Later boys!
I will return shortly, relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed!!!!
Warm hugs,''NOT SURPRIZED''(the very chubby, chubby-chasing OBAMABOT from a location too embarrassing to post here.)

Obama's disapproval rating among women; 51% to 40%. Among men, only 37% approve.

47% of Hispanics disapprove, 6 points more than those that approve.

http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-cent...

This was more than two weeks ago. Hard to imagine his numbers have gotten any better.

So why then - if the majority of women and Hispanics who overwhelmingly voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 but have turned against him - do liberals still insist it's only rightwing conservatives who have Obama pegged all wrong?

Last week, in a fit of fury after they lost the ability to filibuster President Obama’s nominees, several Congressional Republicans threatened to retaliate by slowing things down on Capitol Hill. Democrats “will have trouble in a lot of areas because there’s going to be a lot of anger,” said Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, specifically warning that a United Nations disability treaty was now in danger of being rejected for the second time.

It’s hard to see how Republicans could slow things down more than they already have for the last several years. Yes, they can prevent committees from meeting and add days of wasted time to every nomination and bill. Just after the filibuster vote, in fact, Senate Republicans refused a routine request for unanimous consent to approve several of the president’s uncontested nominees.

But the larger business of governing is already being cast aside. As Politico recently reported, the current Congress has only enacted 49 laws, the fewest since 1947. That’s a mark of pride to Tea Party nihilists, but, for the rest of the country, which expects action on fundamentals like jobs and immigration, it’s a mark of shame.

The O'bamacare plan is to let them die--but only if they are middle class and working-then O'bamacare canceled your policy. You are confused yo yo. If you aren't working and don't plan on working--you will be covered. Let's talk about Judy, the reason Dick the Turbin Durbin passed O'bamacare: Judy at 62 was too stupid to sign up for Medcaid. Durbin does not care about anyone else who lost their insurance. Only the stupid deserve O'bamacare. O'bama care is the equivalent of eugenics.

"55% Favor Repeal of Obamacare"

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_conten...

In March 2003, only 23% said going to war with Iraq was a mistake, but after you anti-American DemoTards politicized the war it ended up being 53% in March 2013.

Still less than the percentage that favors repeal of Obamacare!!!

Rooting for Failure

I just spent 15 minutes on my local health care exchange and realized that I could save a couple hundred dollars a month on my family’s insurance. Of course, I live in Washington State, which has a very competitive market, a superbly functioning website and no Koch-brothers-sponsored saboteurs trying to discourage people from getting health care.

California is just as good. It’s enrolling more than 2,000 people a day. New York is humming as well. And Kentucky, it’s the gold standard now: More than 56,000 people have signed up for new health care coverage -- enough to fill a stadium in Louisville.

This is terrible news, and cannot be allowed to continue. If there’s even a small chance that, say, half of the 50 million or so Americans currently without heath care might get the same thing that every other advanced country offers its citizens, that would be a disaster.

But not to worry. The failure movement is active and very well funded. You probably know about the creepy Uncle Sam character in ads financed by the Koch brothers. Sicko Sam is seen leering over a woman on her back in a hospital exam room, her legs in stirrups. This same guy is now showing up on college campuses, trying to get young people to opt out of health care. On some campuses, he plies students with free booze and pizza -- swee-eeet!

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/29/opinion/ega...

Yes, it is a big and legitimate news story, for a presidency built on technical expertise, that the federal exchange is not working as promised. Ditto Obama’s vow that people could keep their bottom-feeder health care policies.

But where were the news conferences, the Fox News alerts, the parading of people who couldn’t get their lifesaving cancer treatments under the old system? Where was the media attention when thousands of people were routinely dumped once they got sick? When did Republicans in Congress hold an oversight hearing on the leading cause of personal bankruptcy -- medical debt?

All of that is what we had before. And all of that is what we will return to if some version of the Affordable Care Act is not made workable.

One core support group in which Obama is hurting – young adults, a group he won by an historic margin in 2008, and strongly again in 2012.

The president’s overall approval rating has lost 23 points among adults age 18 to 29 since January, his steepest loss in any group. Their view that the country’s headed in the wrong direction has gained 20 points since May.

In just the past month, opposition to the health care law has jumped by 16 points among under-30s, with strong opposition up by 21 points.

This was just a little over a week ago.

Why do liberals insist only rightwing conservatives have Obama pegged all wrong? And why are they the only ones still out of the loop?

Bush's ratings were at 22% or so when he bailed out Detroit.

no matter who doesn't like it, low ratings won't stop a POTUS from doing whatever the hell he wants.
