Have you HAD a vasectomy?
Trust me - he doesn't give a rip about that. To this one, it's 'gestate or die' and he's not too picky about the outcome, as long as you give your all.

Died?

From what?

We aren't talking emergency services. Go to a hospital for that.

Strawmanhead, we weren't speaking of emergency surgery.

You never mentioned it.

SD isn't imposing a waiting period on emergency surgery.

Just saying.
I have to agree with you!! Maybe they just never heard of that really cool invention call birth control.

Yeah, like the men who never heard about that really cool and cheap invention called condoms.

Speaking of caring about women.....many abortionists don't have admitting privileges in a hospital, so if their patient has complications it's not their problem they are left for someone else to care for them.

What about the men who either never heard of -- or just refuse to use -- that really cool invention called CONDOMS? I suppose those guys are blameless, even though such morons CAUSE unwanted pregnancies?

Funny (as in peculiar) how so many right-wing male politicians find it so easy to blame WOMEN for unwanted pregnancies but not so easy to blame the men who REFUSE to use protection.

This is true of a majority of physicians who perform outpatient procedures. What is your point?

The more you restrict abortions,the more poor women turn to back alley clinics or nanny women that use a crochet hook on the kitchen table and follow that with a good dose of Ephedra tea. These practitioners don't work with hospitals and they sure don't keep records. Women of financial means can simply travel out of state where they can still get a SAFE CLINICAL procedure. It's hard to understand why lawmakers want to load up the ghettos and trailer parks with unwanted babies for the taxpayers to raise.

Cannon fodder for dirty little wars comes to mind....and don't forget those Sunday service collection-plate pennies, either.
