While I don't like late term abortions, the fact is that the harder churchy people make it for women to get abortions, the longer it will take them to come up with the money, transportation etc. and the later abortions will take place.

The abortion problem in this country is:
We have 20% religious nuts who can't tell the difference between a morning after pill and a partial birth abortion and want to ban them all.
We have another 20% radical feminists who can't tell the difference between a morning after pill and a partial birth abortion and think both should be available on a whim.
In between, we have the rational 60% or so of us who CAN see the difference and are tired of hearing from the Wingnuts on BOTH ends.

waste of money since this cannot change the law if it passes. It may be a great thought but it cannot accomplish anything.

It is already accomplishing great things. People are getting informed and a light is being shone into the darkness that is abortion. This is just a small step and really it is amazing because in less than a month the goal was accomplished. Why? because albuquerque is pro-life.

Abortion foes, don't get your hopes up too high. The Texas anti-abortion law will eventually be repealed by angry women voters, and would never fly here in NM in the first place.

Oh yeah, Texas, the great defender of life, the state that has executed 5 times more convicts than any other state in the USA. The state where Blacks represent only 12% of the population, but 37% of those executed.

Pro-life, Texas style.

The angry young women whose reproductive systems have been violated by this law will vote out the middle-aged men who passed it.

What gave any pope the right to pontificate about women's reproductive systems? What exactly does HE know?

The popes would have been better served by pontificating about pedophiles which would be something they KNOW about.

Good question. I'm wondering what gives ANY guy the right to pontificate about women's reproductive systems, especially since GUYS will never know what health risks a woman takes on by carrying a pregnancy to term.

What seems to really piss the militant religionists off is the fact that WOMEN can decide for OURSELVES whether or not to have children instead of sitting back and "allowing" nosy male clerics to make those highly personal choices FOR us. Well, too bleeping bad. This isn't the 19th century (or earlier) anymore, and thank goodness for that. Women DO have rights now, including the right to control our OWN reproductive processes.

I am defending the right of my wife and two daughters to control their own reproductive systems. More specifically, I am defending the women in my family from the right-wing perverts in the GOP who are obsessed with controlling everyone else's sexual and reproductive lives.

In general I agree, but when it comes to issues of life and death it takes on a slightly different light.

Here's an idea. If they make abortion illegal, they should make men deserting women they got pregnant illegal as well. Because, if a woman can't back out of a pregnancy, then a man shouldn't be able to, either.

Man shouldn't be thinking with that head anyway, and if they get someone pregnant then its their responsibility to provide for them, nobody elses.

Yeah, Texas values life, that is why it has the highest rate of executions. Some have been found to be innocent after being put to death. Christian Conservatives claim to value life, and speak out against abortion, but have no problem executing someone. Isn't that taking a life too?

In a democracy, if we find out after the fact that a state has executed a single innocent person, that the entire population of the state are all murderers.

Religious extremists, whether they be Christian or Muslim, have somehow convinced themselves that their God wants them to kill people. Unbelievable

birth control is cheap and easy and involves no scalpels etc. what is wrong with these babymakers both male and female that they cannot use the easy preventatives available ? makes no sense at all. is our national IQ falling at such a rate that common sense doesn't exist. birth control is free to most of the population that seems to think birth control means having a living being torn from the body. if this continues it makes sense with abortions to just remove the ovaries with the baby so it doesn't happen over and over.

Don't forget to remove the testicles of the impregnator also!
