" Governor Bobby Jindal also signed a law making it a criminal offense to perform an abortion without a medical license."

Wow, you mean that you actually have to have a medical license to provide medical procedures????

Any type of medical procedure should require a license and be regulated in order to practice.

Dentists, Dermatologists, CNAs, anything.

I agree with a consult for early term up to 3 months but not a waiting period though. A consult should be mandatory in any medical procedure including dental fillings.

Of course the laws are only as good as the enforcement of them is.

That is why it is a good idea to be armed with pen, paper, and questions before going to any medical procedure anyone finds skeptical.

What does that have to do with enforcing the laws?

It provides documentation to report to the proper agencies, law enforcement and/or attorneys if any type of medical or dental practitioner practices without a license (you need a license to drive a car), or is unethical.

I have heard of oncologists, dentists, surgeons being real "jerks" and about sexual assaults taking place in regular hospitals as well as psychiatric that has triggered officials to step in due to documentation.

It was a sad day in human history, when a few doctors got together to change the Hippocratic Oath, so doctors could freely murder the unborn.
