Washington, DC -- The Senate on Thursday night rejected an amendment from a pro-life senator that would have provided conscience protection on abortion for doctors and medical centers. The amendment comes at a time when President Barack Obama is considering overturning further protections.

So we’re to the point of the government forcing doctors to perform abortions against their wishes? That’s dangerously close to Nazi eugenics in my view. Joseph Mengele would be proud.
OK, let’s just say it, shall we? This poop chute is not ‘pro-choice’, he’s pro-death for those who can’t defend themselves, whose cries of pain and anguish can’t be heard from the cramped watery apartments in which they live their innocent little lives as they’re being torn limb from limb.
I hate this _______.
This is a powerful moral issue, much like slavery was before and during the American Civil War.
Very scary indeed.
Let’s see - one set of humans defining another set of humans as less human and therefore subject to the whims of the first set, up to and including their extermination.
Sounds pretty analogous to me.
> Thats dangerously close to Nazi eugenics in my view.
Dangerously close? It’s the same.
There are OB/GYN practitioners who will retire or become dentists and osteopaths rather than being forced to perform abortions.
Of course, this fits right in with government plans to take over and ration “health care”, which used to be called “medicine” or the “medical profession”.
Imagine the people who run the government schools running the hospitals and clinics.
> Joseph Mengele would be proud.
So would Josef Stalin.
This is part of the ongoing struggle being waged at the UN and in the corridors of power of various governments to have abortion proclaimed as a "human right". Once that happens the deluge will begin in earnest. Hospitals and physicians who refuse to perform these procedures will be deemed to be guilty of "human rights violations". Then the persecution will hit top gear.
At present, abortion is a "choice". However, the "pro-choice" folk aren't content with that for it allows for the possibility of dissent and claims of conscience. There can be no escape route for those who object to abortion. Dissent must be silenced. You will cooperate with the killing.
Punitive actions will then be imposed, with increasing severity, on those who obstinately deny "the people" their "human rights". We're rapidly approaching the time when we'll no longer be able to simply talk the talk. We'll have to stand up and be counted and suffer for our beliefs.
The Congress HAS NO CONSCIENCE! THEY ARE FOR LATE TERM ABORTION AND IN FACT FOR ALL ABORTION ANYTIME ANYPLACE ANYWHERE AS LED BY THEIR CHIEF BABY KILLER OBUMMER!
I might have miscounted but the nays were:
Casey voted yea
Let’s see Toomey use that as an ad.
Complete violation of the First Amendment.

Pay caps for all doctors...it's a national necessity
/wish it was sarcasm
A conscientious objector (CO) is an individual who, on religious, moral or ethical grounds, refuses to participate as a combatant in war or, in some cases, to take any role that would support a combatant organization armed forces.
Will the Senate now address this issue and render the same verdict ?
didnt think so
Does anyone out there have a, or know of, a list of CATHOLIC senators who have voted to PREVENT their fellow CATHOLICS from obeying their deeply held religious beliefs?
I’d be very curious. How did that most observant Catholic from Massachusetts, E.M.Kennedy vote? Just curious.
Doctors just should say no.
Um...m...m, that’s the right they just lost.
Now is the time, folks, to decide if we’re just going to fall in line — or draw one.
This shows you how little the RATS truly care about the availability of healthcare services. Catholic hospitals might just shut down because of this, reducing the availability of all kinds of services. But it’s more important to these RATS to make a political statement!
Kennedy did not vote (probably was not present). Kerry and Landrieu voted nay. I believe both claim to be Catholic.
Ys, like they’re going to lock up all the doctors who refuse. Then where is “national health care.” Suing doctors will have the same effect.
Watch for the Catholic hospitals to close, too.
