If they add a rider allowing suits against the mothers that birthed the jackasses that are proposing this idiotic bill for pain and suffering of humanity by not aborting the members of the Iowa caucus proposing this maybe. It would have to allow suits against the members themselves if their mother is already dead. They have to add a penalty cost ( thinking 2x costs) beyond loser pays legal fees including all appeals costs.

In that case, I should be able to sue the Catholic church for "religion regret." I'd like millions of $$$ in damages for all of the pain and suffering I've experienced as a direct result of having Catholicism shoved down my throat for the first 17 years of my life.

I regret going in to debt to pay for college. I don't feel that I was very well informed about the consequences of signing those loan checks. Gimme $.
 
2014-02-28 04:31:43 PM  
So this is basically a bill who's purpose is to motivate doctors to not perform abortion for fear they'll be sued, right?
 
2014-02-28 04:32:35 PM  
Let's see if yesterday's "why on earth would there be privacy concerns at an abortion clinic" brigade shows up.

Also, for the sake of an informed discussion, here's the bill.

Can we sue politicians because of election regret?

This is a great idea...for elections.

I'm thinking the reason would be to increase the insurance premiums to the point that no abortion clinic could fund the operation. Which I would be all for if it would finally get people to admit that lawsuits are a major cause of expenses in the healthcare industry and that tort reform is necessary.

If I join TF and then regret it, can I sue drew? Or at least get my five bucks back?

I only have a limited supply of punches to the face, but I'm saving one for this asshat.
 
2014-02-28 04:56:17 PM  
So when are they going to allow "mothers" to sue the officiating clergyman for regret, etc.?

It seems more fair to me to allow the "mother"s to sue the "fathers" of the dead lump of protoplasm because they regret having sex with them. And really sue their asses off in cases of rape and incestuous rape, of course. But, hey, if you want to sue a professional with the ability to pay, I recommend suing the Pope. Why fark around with dumbass one night stands, idiot husbands and demented brothers, uncles, and fathers? You tried that once and how did it work out for you?
 
2014-02-28 04:56:43 PM  
Another abortion law??

I d&c *that* coming
 
2014-02-28 04:57:15 PM  
Life is filled with regrets, some more than others. If it was a legal procedure, and you entered into it of your own free will, then any regret you have is just something you'll have to live with.

Hey, what about circumcision regret? Can I get a couple dollars here for some circumcision regret? C'mon, I had a valuable foreskin! I want some of that sweet, sweet regret money from somebody for somethin'...

DamnYankees: So this is basically a bill who's purpose is to motivate doctors to not perform abortion for fear they'll be sued, right?


Naturally.

I'm no lawyer, but I imagine this wouldn't be too difficult to work around - just add a form that patients have to sign promising that they won't sue.

Nice try, though!

naughtyrev: Can we sue politicians because of election regret?


It's call a recall.

mbillips: How about getting-drunk regret? Can I sue my bartender over my hangover?


Actually you can sue if the bartender kept serving you after he knew you were drunk. I'm not sure if it has ever worked on hangovers but car accidents and injury due to alcohol poisoning has worked. I'm not sure if a lawyer would bother with trying to get compensation for a headache

Seems like it. I would like to personally kick the people behind this square in the nuts. They are trying to abuse the legal system to make a point. Fark that noise.

Some day 10 years from now when we finally recover from the Bush financial collapse, we're going to look at the heady years of our flirtation with the lunatic right and it will be like waking up next to a fat woman in a hungover haze.
 
2014-02-28 05:00:07 PM  
That's creative. Can't backdoor an abortion ban, so drive Dr insurance costs through the roof and make dr afraid to provide them.

You could just as easily say "All regulations are good" to a liberal decrying abortion clinic regulations.  This subject seems to make both sides appreciate the other's default position.

It kind of sucks watching the Republican party implode. Something has to balance out the nutty far left. Unfortunately the right was taken over by the far right.

DamnYankees: So this is basically a bill who's purpose is to motivate doctors to not perform abortion for fear they'll be sued, right?


From what I've heard doctors already advise against abortions if they believe the patient has beliefs that will cause them to severely regret the decision.
 
2014-02-28 05:07:15 PM  
So, more government regulation and more medical malpractice liability?  The Republican party is in its third trimester of hypocrisy.

No shiat. I can put a cherry on the top of that cake with the fact I went thru Catholic Social Services back in the day for being adopted and frankly speaking, it did not turn out good at all for me. Atheist.

 
2014-02-28 05:12:22 PM  
Let me guess subby, I bet you think that abortion clinics should not be allowed to refuse service to gay men.

So he thinks women are too feeble-minded and emotional to be held accountable for putting their signature on legal documents (ie informed consent form), huh?

I'm trying to think of a way to phrase the question of whether he thinks women should be able to sign anything at all (including their own "traditional marriage" forms or if they should have to get their daddy to sign for them), but my brain keeps looping back to "OMG this man is a complete and total f*ckwit!"

If women could sue men because they regret having sex with them, Ben Roethlisberger would be in real trouble...

/...at least it would cut down on the false rape accusations...
