As expected, Alabama governor Robert Bentley signed the We Dare Defend Our Right to Life law that overwhelming passed the Alabama House and Senate, making Alabama one of the most pro-life states in the nation.
Also as expected, Planned Parenthood has warned that an almost certain legal challenge would befall this law. The abortion industry rhetoric continues with its usual mantras which insist a right to abortion on demand, under basically any medical conditions, is a fundamental right for all women. Comparing a similar law passed recently yin Mississippi, CNN reports:
A similar new law in Mississippi has put that states only abortion provider on the verge of closing because of such an admitting privileges requirement, Planned Parenthood said. That clinic is challenging the Mississippi law in federal court, saying the state would end up banning abortion because the clinics doctors havent been able to gain the privileges.
An important point here is that abortion has not become illegal simply because medical standards are being enacted. The rhetoric of the abortion industry implies that safety laws are hindering a legal right. In fact, safety laws are legal protection in every other medical procedure without question of rights. There isnt a normal person who wouldnt want to see a clinic close its doors if it was risking lives with its lack of safety procedures.
Its an interesting point to note that the abortion industry continues to hold a higher value on the right to take a babys life than it does the safety of the mother. So the question is, who are they actually helping? The only answer can be the abortionist and clinic. No one else benefits. A woman who has surgery at a faculty not licensed for surgery, who could not be transported on a gurney because the door isnt wide enough, whose doctor cant admit her to a hospital in an emergency, that woman is not benefiting. She is actually taking a greater risk.
What kind of medical care insists that widely regarded standards are an infringement of rights? Only the abortion industry.
The sponsor of the Alabama bill, who happens to be a woman, Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin (R), told CNN that if clinics actually cared about women, they would embrace a law liked this. I wouldnt let anyone I loved go to a hospital that did not meet national safety standards. Most people wouldnt. As McClurkin told CNN:
For far too long, Alabama has had more health regulations in place to protect your cat or dog at a vet clinic than it does for a woman receiving an abortion; this law will correct that shameful disparity.
Consider that truth. This law protects women by giving them safety standards that animals have. Every woman in the nation, no matter what her opinion on abortion should be troubled by that reality. People who care about women will adopt standards of care that help them. The old adage spoken by almost every mother in the world holds true, actions speak louder than words. The actions of the abortion industry to put women at risk speaks louder than its words about caring for womens health.
A Planned Parenthood representative told CNN, in response to the five abortion clinics in the state needing to remodel to meet requirements, It puts an undue burden on existing facilities. All of this makes it harder to access health care. This statement is bewildering.
The abortion industry insists the cost to make clinics meet standards would be prohibitive, but it makes no bones about the costs of legal battles to get out of it. Their logic is astounding, and detrimental to the lives of not only the babies who are killed for their profit but for the moms who go to them for medical help in a moment of crisis.
On Tuesday when Gov. Bentley signed this law, Alabama took a step forward and said the lives of women, as well as babies, are more important then the profit of an industry that doesnt regard them as anything but clients.
I guess it never occurred to these butchers that they are running a medical clinic? Then again the local Wal Mart deli is cleaner.
May the people of planned parenthood suffer the fate of their victims.
A thousand times.
good news here!!
Why oh why would Planned Parenthood feel the need to sue? After all, they keep telling us that they do not focus on abortion. They are more concerned about pregnancy prevention and breast health donchaknow!
Interesting that the people who run planned parenthood weren’t aborted. Something for them to think about.
Feminazis are mad. Makes me feel good.
