Texas Senate set for filibuster finale on abortion

Jun 25, 2013 Full story: WLOX-TV Biloxi 28

A sweeping bill that would effectively shut down most abortion clinics across the nation's second most-populous state has stalled in the Texas Senate - and a Democratic filibuster that will only need to last a seemingly manageable 13 hours Tuesday looks like it will be enough to talk the hotly contested measure to death.

Actually, it is WOMEN who benefit from the ability to decide for OURSELVES, as individuals, whether or not to continue a pregnancy, "genius." If a woman chooses for any reason NOT to continue a pregnancy, it is not the business of any state government, in Texas or any other state, to interfere with her private medical decision.

The anti-abortion extremist politicians have demonstrated their clear LACK of concern for women in their intent to push this ANTI-CHOICE legislation through. I'm very grateful for courageous politicians like Senator Davis to filibuster against these draconian measures. I hope that more pro-choice Senators may soon begin doing the same in other states.

Oh of course Dan, yes, pardon me. My mistake entirely.
How could I be so foolish as to not understand that the purpose and goal of the anti choice crowd was the safety and welfare of women. HOW BLIND COULD I BE??
When I had an abortion it was not performed at a ambulatory surgical center. I went home was given instructions and contact information if any concerns arose. I went back for a checkup in three weeks. All went well. Aren't you glad? I was safe and sound....bet you and Dumbstifying are relieved!! Seriously....I didn't know you two cared!!
Lets face it Dan...the anti choice crowd is objected to RU-486 entirely unless you can prove otherwise. The CC is objected to Mifepristone to end a ectopic pregnancy...so what does that tell you Dan?? Concern for women is their motive...really?
Read RvW
The lines are drawn no need for a ban on 20 week abortion as an elective.

Gosh....I so did not know how much the anti choicers cared about me!!
You anecdotal evidence sets the standard for surgical procedure in Texas?

Didn't know that.

You didn't have any complications, thus no one in Texas will have any complications, ever, so the legislation is unnecessary.

Stop this incredibly intense and complex topic into something as stupid as "human equality on the backs of dead babies". An abortion is a tough decision for many women, but is a decision than many women feel they need to make.

No apparently this genius, rocket scientist, the Einstein of Texass sets the standards:



You can have complications from anything medical. I have had complications at home with medications prescribed to me from a doctors office. Nothing new Dan.

Gee, I am a little disappointed that you did not express relief knowing my abortion went well and that I was OK.....so disappointed.....I thought you "cared"?

As you state, one "can have complications from anything medical".

These safeguards listed in the proposed law would help to minimize the risks from these complications, yet you oppose their enactment.

Odd stance for you to take. Yours went well (glad for you), so who cares about anyone else? This is your position?

No, Dan, my position is that the so called pro life crowd are most interested in establishing barriers than any concern for women. You know it is true so why are you dancing? Are you saying that all so called safety measures put in place and the anti choice crowd will be pleased and go the fck away?

Seriously Dan. I am amazed how stupid you think the pro choice women are. Your/their little facade is not working.

Exactly. The anti-choice politicians in states like Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and others are obviously fixated on only ONE issue: abortion, abortion, abortion.

So much for their phony "concern" about JOBS, wouldn't you say?

Isn't the pro-choice argument consistently "it's just a medical procedure"?

As such, it's being treated like one here, and you don't like that now. Now, to you, it should receive singular treatment in Texas respective to facilities regulations, when before you could tell us enough times that "its just a medical procedure".

Tough crowd to please.
