I will honestly acknowledge being a liberal, though like most liberals I don’t always agree with the democratic party…but this, I am honestly speechless. I get the abortion is a controversial issue but suggesting that the goal of your opponents is to entirely eliminate the human race is just insane.
Of course I know that is is political rhetoric meant to engender an emotional response not a logical one, but it seriously amazes me that they believe their constituency would take this kind of nonsense seriously, it sounds like a conspiracy theory right up there with people who claim 9/11 was an inside job or big pharma wants to keep you sick. (of course there are people who actually believe those things too)
The governor is selling the bill in question as necessary for the safety women. However, the bill that is being creates a set of rules governing abortion clinics which would cause the one clinic in the entire state to shut down, which would, in effect, eliminate abortion as an option for most women. Which is, of course, the point of the bill, and the smoke screen about women’s health is just a thin veneer to cover up their goal.
The argument that the bill’s requirement that the abortion doctors have admitting privileges at a local hospital is about women’s safety doesn’t even make sense. Are there any cases where a doctors lack of admitting privileges in a hospital resulted in a serious problem for a person being admitted? I certainly don’t know of any case where that has been an issue. The goal seems to be much the same as the dozens of other bills that have been passed over the past several years on abortion. Since Roe V. Wade prevents states from outright banning abortions they are trying to pass laws that make it nearly impossible to get one.
