More_Like_A_Stain: Theaetetus: No, that's not it at all... It's just that there's no where a pregnant woman could go on, say, a Sunday morning around 9-10 AM, to get counseling against having an abortion. Nope, no places like that exist at all, and they certainly don't have steeples and allegedly-celibate men in robes and pipe organs.Isn't that the place where they're always thinking of the children?
THX 1138: tom baker's scarf: waiting periods seem only to drag out a miserable process for no reason.Ding ding ding. If you can't legally make abortion illegal, at least make the women suffer as much as possible as they jump through all the necessary hoops.
meat0918: I can't help but feel that all of this is just trying to get a case to try and overturn Roe v. Wade before the more conservative justices retire or die.I highly doubt Roberts would want his to be the court that overturns it, not after his Obamacare performance.
Gergesa: Oh honestly, doesn't this crap ever end?
smeegle: Whatever, it's three farkin days. Believe you me, if I decided on having an abortion, my mind would be set and I could stikl the three days out, and deal with all of the BS that comes with it. Just nod and wave ladies. Then carry on.
lennavan: The My Little Pony Killer: Supporters say the change would ensure women have time to receive required counseling at pregnancy help centers, which discourage abortions. make it to the second trimester and can no longer abort at allDon't dance around the issue by trying to act as though you're doing anybody a favor here.Yep. Tiny legislation by tiny legislation and the pro-lifers are slowly outlawing abortion. You gotta get an ultrasound. Wait, you gotta get a vaginal ultrasound. You gotta wait a day. Wait, you gotta wait a few days. Wait, weekends/holidays don't count. Oh, hey the only clinic in the entire state has doctors without admitting privileges at the local hospital? Cool, - All abortion doctors have to have admitting privileges at the local hospital. Oh hey, the abortion clinics are only set up as outpatient centers? Cool, - all abortion clinics have to meet actual hospital standards. Sorry if that's too expensive or your facility cannot be retrofit to accommodate!
DeaH: Ladies of South Dakota, here's a handy link. Think of Plan B the same way you would a fire extinguisher. You don't wait for a fire to run out and buy a fire extinguisher, and you don't wait for contraceptive failure to buy Plan B. If you live in a state like South Dakota, I suggest buying two kits. Have one on you and one in your home.
DemonEater: Why don't they just require a 3 month wait and get it over with?
Fuzzmosis: I'm not a woman, nor have I even been pregnant. Nor have I made a girl pregnant.But... why is the base assumption that women rush to the abortion clinic without thinking about it first? That's the only rationale I can think of for this... well, that and fanatacism. When your base assumptions are no one thinks but you, and you're over the age of 12, someone failed at raising you.That's right. I'm now blaming politicians parents for their actions. They clearly won't take personal responsibility.
sabreWulf07: InteriorDesignNinja: FTFA: "Supporters say the change would ensure women have time to receive required counseling"fark off, seriously. Who do they think they are?What's preventing women from receiving counseling before seeing their doctor? Why is the counseling required? Can't the GOP just

bborchar: I'm fine with this...if they also rule that every other medical procedure must also have a waiting period.
Fluorescent Testicle: fusillade762: Think of all the jobs this will create!Neonatal unit jobs, childcare jobs, welfare office jobs, social worker jobs...
Nadie_AZ: Women seeking abortions in South Dakota currently must wait three days after seeing an abortion clinic doctor before they can have the procedure. The bill would make it so that weekends and holidays do not count in calculating the three-day waiting period.Supporters say the change would ensure women have time to receive required counseling at pregnancy help centers, which discourage abortions.Because their being forced to get an abortion? Is that it?
