Abortion For All, By All

In California, it will soon be legal for Roto-Rooter to do abortions. That’s because the the company deals with plumbing, and abortion has to do with women’s plumbing. That’s the level of reasoning involved in the passage by the state Senate of a bill to allow non-physicians to do abortions:

Nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and physician assistants could perform a type of early abortion under a bill approved Monday by the state Senate, leaving the measure one step from the governor.

The measure by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would let those medical professionals perform what are known as aspiration abortions during the first trimester. The method involves inserting a tube and using suction to terminate a pregnancy.

The Senate approved AB154 on a mostly party-line, 25-11 vote, sending it back to the Assembly for a final vote on amendments.

Expanding the list of professionals who can perform those types of abortions would help make them available in areas that have few doctors, said Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, who carried the measure in the Senate. She said about half of California counties lack abortion providers.

“All women deserve access to care in their local communities,” she said.

GIven that California already has the most liberal abortion laws in the country, as well as the most abortion clinics, suggesting that any female Californians don’t have access to abortion is patently dishonest. The idea that it should be available as conveniently as their access to aspirin is morally vacuous. And the claim that this is a matter of “women’s health” is ludicrous. No matter what method is used, abortion is a form of surgery. Who will be allowed to do it next? Podiatrists? Chiropractors? How about if the receptionists in OB-GYN office be permitted to do abortions? Or the doctor’s tax attorney?

At this point, Roto-Rooter makes just as much sense.

Why do I hold that the outright murder of Christians is coming to the West in a handful of years?

See above.  Satan has a nature.  When God is rejected, evil ideas grow, spread and run to their absolute illogical extreme.

BTW, eventually their will be beds in schools for children to have sex in because “They will have sex anyway and in school we can ensure safe sex…”

“The method involves inserting a tube and using suction to terminate a pregnancy.” - in other words, sucking the baby out of its mother’s womb. And now, coming to a clinic near you, this can be done by just about anyone. Well, we have to keep abortion safe (safe?), legal, and rare (rare?). Well, at least it will be legal, right?

[1]jedinovice, I actually read somewhere the other day that some loony female is advocating allowing your kids to have their boy/girfriends sleep over because they’re going to have sex anyway - you know, the same rationale that used to be used for giving kids alcohol at home.

Thanks for the info Nellie.

It’s frightening now how fast things are charging towards their (now inevitable) conclusion.

This is similar to legislation that increases the scope of practice of “allied health professionals” that is introduced in most states’ legislatures each year. This is never about improving access to care, although that is the most common talking point put forth. This is all about money. The big abortion mill can create a satellite clinic with non-physicians doing most of the work which will generate more money.

McDonalds has been consulted about having “Abortion drive-thru’s” (millons served.  :-( )

This is just about that ridiculous…this isn’t about “woman’s healthcare”, as 50% of the woman die from the procedure (as half of all babies are female).  It’s about CONVENIENCE.  And it’s about EVIL.

The threat is also to the health of women who undergo this procedure at the hands of half-trained personnel. Of course,  the doctors who do abortions are pretty much scumbags in a hurry for the money, so maybe it won’t be much worse.

Yeah, right
