(Jezebel)   Mississippi legislators have figured out how to shut down the state's sole abortion clinic: "The new mandate requires all doctors to have hospital admitting privileges, and every single area hospital has refused to grant them"   (jezebel.com) divider line 253

Ultimately, this shouldn't survive a Court challenge.  Not if the "handguns are legal - we just don't issue permits" argument that failed in Heller and Chicago still stand.

This happened last year and there was a court challenge. Apparently the challenge failed or has been moving more slowly than state enforcement.

Isn't there a group od doctors on a boat around the Middle East that does something similar?

I want to place similarly burdensome regulations on firearms manufacturers.

By the way sister-farkers, all this does is make it harder for poor, black women to get abortions. Rich white girls will still find sympathetic doctors to preserve the family's honor, or some such nonsense.

Enjoy your home invasion in 18 years.

Now I'm wondering how abortion laws work in the Gulf of Mexico. This could be a great business opportunity for someone.

This is not a done deal yet. The clinic is still waiting for ahearing by the state's health department, and they're requesting a temporary injunction to stop enforcement while they argue the constitutionality of the law. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.

How it pans out is basic human rights to legal medical care are threatened by asswit right wing b*tches who are more close politically to the arab Taliban than they are to Americans.

That's a feature, not a bug.  If we are going to punish women, we don't want to punish the sorority sisters that may one day become our wives.

1) Ban birth control.
2) Ban abortion.
3) Abstinence-only edumakashun.
4) Wonder why so many out of wedlock births.
5) Abolish food stamps. That'll larn them Welfare Queens. (The Welfare Queens with the babies, of course, not the ones with the zillion-dollar contracts with the Small Government®.)
6) Ship all the well-paying jobs overseas.
7) Gut the public schools. You don't need an education to work a McJob, and teachers are Union Thugs (except when the NRA wants to arm them).
8) Hike taxes on people who work for a living. Cut them on the plutocrats. David Koch's Mercedes is six months old and he wants a new one.
9) Abolish the minimum wage.
10) Wonder why so many people break the law instead of starving quietly, or getting a McJob for take-home pay that won't take them home.
11) zOMG CRIME WAVE!
12) Zillion-dollar Small Government® contracts for private prisons and purveyors of riot gear.
13) No ??? here, baby.
14) Profit!

2013-02-01 06:58:39 PM  
So, have the hospitals articulated any reason for why they rejected the applications?  I mean, I figure "people from Mississippi aren't smart enough to be doctors" is pretty high on the list, but what are the actual requirements for having hospital admittance privileges?

If it weren't for the problem of not being able to find a hospital to support their efforts to stay open, I would like to know what is wrong with an abortion clinic needing admitting privileges for such a serious procedure? It isn't like an overgrown toenail.

Even birthing centers are required (in all/most states, as far as I know) to have admitting privileges at a hospital and a doctor on staff in case something goes wrong. Why wouldn't you want the same type of requirement for a clinic that does abortions?

For some of you, it seems to be it is abortions at all costs, regardless of safety, information given to the woman, or her age. Would you think the same way about any other surgical procedure?

Why forget the hospital? The hookers can be nurses, dressed appropriately, and if you can't save their life, at least they'll die happy. For the kinkier patients, get some orderlies and straight jackets.... and I'm overthinking this.

Nah, gun laws mean only criminals have guns.
Abortion laws mean only criminals have abortions.
Criminals having abortions means criminals don't reproduce
Evolution (which doesn't really exist) means abortion laws prevent crime!
