so... if you’re a doctor you HAVE TO perfomr abortions if you dont want to?

Besides being stupid, isn’t that like telling a proctologist he has to do foot surgery whether he wants to or not?

Please please please pray this docent happen. If it does I will be affected. I will resign my job if I am forced to provide anesthesia abortions. I’m a single mom with a 3 year old I plan to send to private school, a mortgage, car payment, and $60k in loans from grad school. But I’ll work at the mall before I participate in this.

Not just drs performing abortions. This affects anesthesia providers, OR nurses, and scrub techs. Lots of people will have their religious freedoms violated by this.

This news is certainly not a surprise but also not encouraging. Once again, the ultimate result of too many Americans voting for an 'historic' candidate and swallowing the media hype without even considering his record and his statements. Too late now.

I pray this attempt to remove the 'conscience' protections for those medical professionals morally and/religiously opposed to participating in abortion of a baby. Such protection is simply common sense and the right thing to do. This is why it is opposed by the Obama administration.

Yet another reason why I’ll never have children. No one should ever grow up surrounded by ghouls and other vermin.

This infection has reached the critical stage. Human civilization is finished.

I seem to recall that something once known as the Constitution of the United States had a “passage” that said there “should be NO establishment of religion or the free practice thereof” or something like that.
Could someone tell me when that was rescinded? I must have been watching a football game or something at the time.
If a person’s religious tenets can be thrown out by an out of control government, what can be next? Maybe observant JEWS and/or MUSLIMS can be required to have PORK CHOPS for a meal on Tuesdays. You never know.

Drudge has a story today about a Muslim woman who was a teacher and is suing because she was not allowed a 3 week leave because of her “religious” right to have to visit Mecca. Of course, the DOJ is right behind her case.

How can it be someones civil right to get a vacation that the rest of us cannot due to religious reasons, but the killing of a baby that someone else’s religion prohibits is not protected?

The right to an abortion trumps all other rights--at least in the views of the feminists, the Democratic Party, and a disturbing number of judges.

Obama is the most pro-abortion President we have had and may be the most pro-abortion politician currently in public life. He's one Supreme Court appointment away from having a solid block of 5 left-wing justices on the Court who will push abortion "rights" and all the other liberal causes.

“How can it be someones civil right to get a vacation that the rest of us cannot due to religious reasons, but the killing of a baby that someone else’s religion prohibits is not protected?”

Like a gang initiation, or making bones, the killing itself is an obsession to them. It marks the destruction of one’s integrity and the murder not only of an innocent victim, but of the innocence of the participant. There is an aspect of this evil which verges on ritual, as well as conversion.

My God judge these people as they deserve.

I wonder if this could find its way into the Supreme Court. I sure wish there was a way we could get Obama impeached.

“Obama is the most pro-abortion President we have had and may be the most pro-abortion politician currently in public life.”

Yes he is. There is a void within Obama that is limitless.

Alan Keyes tried to warn us. BAIPA is more instructive about Obama than that ranting imbecile Jeremiah Wright, or the old fauxshevik, William Ayers.

BAIPA goes directly to the cold vacuum at Obama’s center.

Nevermind. I just figured it out - Born Alive Infant Protection Act

We have a Dr here in Pittsburgh named Foka who does abortions. How ironic. Just like FOCA.

There is no mountain high enough, no sea wide enough, no forest thick enough to keep abortionists and abortion lovers from reaching their helpless victim. They may look human but inside they are empty and putrid.

He should be impeached for not upholding the 1st Ammendment (Among others).

Yes, but Eric Holder and Kathleen Sebelius write in the Washington Post today that all that Obamacare bill is about is banning insurers from denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Like we needed a 2,000-page bill to do that!! Show these people to be the LIARS they are on health care!!!!

You are a SPAMMER. You get on thread, after thread telling people not to have babies and often insulting those who do.Anti child, anti family, zero population junk. Just like the greenie global warming sites. I got news for you soothsayer - most Freepers believe in families and having babies. Warped, warped warped. I’ve seen you try to hijack to many threads with this crap.And on an abortion thread yet - oh the irony.

I posted here the idea that the Constitution actually does have a ban on abortion.

In the Preamble, it says "...and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..."

I suggested that the "Blessings of Liberty" refers to rights granted from God (Blessings and Liberty being capitalized, and Liberty being one of three capitalized rights from the Declaration from our Creator), and "secure... our posterity" means for our children and their children.

How can we "secure" "Blessings" for "our posterity" if we allow "our posterity" to be aborted?

You disgust me. Nothing is more evil than producing children just so they can maintain society. That’s exactly what the leftists do!

How do you live with yourself?

No your position it what the leftist believe. Conservatives are pro family. And the Good Lord told us to be fruitful and multiply. Your sick, trying to take out your own unhappy childhood on others. I notice you are real fond of posting articles where children suffer. You don’t know when the end is coming or what is going to happen next in this country. Quit pretending you do. The rest of us aren’t trying to cause a doomsday war. We’re interested in returnig America to her former self. Liberty, Christian values, a good place for children to grow up. And raising children who will lead our country based on hard work and Godly priciples as we were commanded to do.No one is going to not have children because of the spam you post.You are just like the guy that took over the discovery channel. This was his agenda.

Nonsense. You just stand by and let the enemy win. I guarantee you that there are atrocities being committed in your own neighborhood at this very second. In some places your neighbors are already being dragged off in the night under false charges by a corrupt system. It’s not happening tomorrow, it’s happening today! What have you REALLY done to stop it? I’m completely ready to fight and die right now! Nothing to lose here!

How can you believe that you can play by their rules and safely raise a family? Or do you simply not care what happens to them?

You are doing exactly what many Jews did during the Holocaust. They figured that so long as they play nice and look after their immediate family, they would all come out alive. They believed this even while their neighbors in the ghettos were dragged away. Not long after they watched as their little ones marched naked into the gas chambers. Do you truly believe that you can float through this? Or do you believe that the leftists can’t or won’t target your family for destruction?

I’ll change my tune when the rest of you change yours.

You are already in a doomsday war whether you accept the reality or not. There is no going on with life as usual.

Americans are a good bit more ornery than Europeans and way better armed. You’re letting you’re fears take control of you.Wars, rumors of wars, Genghis Khan, Indian attacks, King George lopping off heads, Pol pot, Hitler, tyrants and maurauders through every age in history. This IS life as usual. If we played by your rules, no kids till it’s safe, the human race would have died out years ago. The end of times will happen on the Lord’s time. Not when a handfull of people like yourself say so. No one around here will be changing their tune. Children aren’t children forever. Today’s children are tomorrows leaders and clergyman and parents. The world has never been safe. It’s always been what you make of it. If you want to be a surrender monkey and throw in the towel go right ahead. Meanwhile the rest of us will be doing something useful.You’re agenda is just you acting out over your own childhood, it has nothing to do with the rest of the world. How horrible if you spend your whole life doing this, looking for terrible news items to prove you’re fears, instead of living and loving.
