Now add in the Hobby Lobby decision - the religious right wants to give corporations the 'right' to limit abortion even further, and have corporations reduce access as much as possible.  it all adds up to a fairly well coordinated attack on women's rights and a comprehensive approach to controlling women's health care and reproductive health choices.

Did the decision say "if sluts wouldn't slut their sluttery, then sluts sluts sluts Jesus."?

If you disagree, thank Gosnell, Booker and other abortionists that allowed their patients to die, or suffer tremendous infection. Safe? Not so much.

If only the procedure hadn't been driven underground, it could be performed in a hospital by competent doctors, and this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

I think that many conservatives would rather just have the slutty women die off, leaving only the pliant obedient ones for breeding and general slavery.

that too, yes.  this is a very coordinated attack on women's health issues.  i'm rather impressed at the ground work and effort the evangelicals put into all of this.  Now imagine if the evangelicals had spent all that time, money, effort and manpower trying to eliminate poverty instead of denying women access to affordable health care...

*sigh*

But strong, independent women in charge of their own lives scares the jesus out of some men.

I've heard that the health care situation in the southernmost, and poorest, part of Texas is especially dire.

As the Texas Tribune reports, Chief Justice Edith Jones' opinion stated that Texas' "articulation of rational legislative objectives, which was backed by evidence placed before the state legislature, easily supplied a connection between the admitting-privileges rule and the desirable protection of abortion patients' health."

Sure, but by that logic ALL clinics of ALL types should be required to have admitting privileges.  If you're singling out abortion providers, then the "connection" is pretext bullsh*t and isn't constitutional.

Not to mention that every clinic that asked for admitting privileges, anywhere, has been turned down.  They were meant to fail.

Didn't Gosnell get life in prison?

I would think that shows that existing laws would be sufficient deterrent to abortion doctors not getting their patients to an ER if they need one.

Some people believe that a fetus is a human.  That killing a human is murder.  Laws should protect people from being murdered.  You may disagree.  Those people are finally using the liberal tactic of using petty laws to erode freedom slowly rather than head on.  Liberals are being hoisted on their own petards.  I find it amusing.

Texas is almost like our very own third world country right here, at home.  Convenient.

If you don't want to be a chattel, get Bootstrappy and stop being a woman, is their theory, I guess....

This is a teachable moment for you Progs.

See how easy it is to enact "regulations" that, on their face, appear to concern nothing but consumer-friendly protections, but are actually motivated by the desire to shut down most if not all of the targeted activity?

This is the tactic that free market proponents have been criticizing for about 100 or so years now -- government controls that are touted as consumer protections, but are really just a way to use the State as a tool for taking someone or something out of the picture.

The motivation here (Jesus) is different than the usual one (squelching competition), but the method is the same.

It must be frustrating to have your opponents shout "safety!" and "consumer protection!" back at you when you try to point out the true, corrupt motive and goal of these kinds of restrictions.

Terribly frustrating.

I do hope this angle is being pursued vigorously. Likewise regarding the new restrictions to design and construction.

Existing laws against abortion are insufficient and prove that we need more laws.  Whereas more gun prevention regulations is just a power grab by the gubmint.

Okay, we'll play it that way.

If there should be no differentiation of rights between the born and unborn, when do I get to start using other people's bodies against their will?

The argument from the left isn't that a fetus should have fewer rights than a born person, it's that they  shouldn't have more.

 Its not the disagreement but the tactics that they stole from you.  Don't like something but cant make it illegal?  No problem....slowly.. make it harder to do.  Its right out of the Liberal playbook.  So I merely point at you and laugh.  HA HA you are getting your own medicine.

You're going to have to help me out here, since we don't live in the same universe as you and therefore don't inherently know what dastardly schemes you're "wink-wink nudge-nudging" us about.

Are you referring to us slowly stripping away your ability to openly discriminate and persecute women, minorities, homosexuals, non-Christians, and the poor?

Realistically the only thing they did not do was install a tax on the providers and the patients.  And say the tax money would go to DR. training and education.  Then it would have been so perfect I would have peed myself laughing at you.

You're confusing business 'rights' and person rights.

Regulation of businesses that are dumping toxic slug into the air/water/earth, where it harms untold numbers of people is one thing.  Restricting the reproductive rights of women is something completely different.

It's as though these Progderps aren't even aware of their own history.

This Texas law isn't an Alinsky tactic at all. It's a much older method, straight out of the Fabian Society.

If the Progderps ever have to face a well-orchestrated campaign of Fabian conservatism, or even Fabian libertarianism, the entertainment value will be very high. Much popcorn will be consumed. My schadenfreud-o-meter will asplode.
