Perdue vetoes abortion bill
newsobserver.com ^ | June 27, 2011

Posted on 06/27/2011 4:39:08 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Gov. Bev Perdue vetoed a bill that would have required women seeking abortions to wait 24 hours after state-mandated counseling and to undergo ultrasounds.

In a statement, Perdue said the bill would interfer with doctor-patient relationships.

“This bill is a dangerous intrusion into the confidential relationship that exists between women and their doctors," she said. "The bill contains provisions that are the most extreme in the nation in terms of interfering with that relationship. Physicians must be free to advise and treat their patients based on their medical knowledge and expertise and not have their advice overridden by elected officials seeking to impose their own ideological agenda on others.”

This is Perdue's 10th veto of the year.

If abortion is a choice, let the fetus decide.

Anybody know if this is another veto-proof vote that will just get passed anyway?

More unborn baby blood on a stinking politician’s hands . . . Going to be some fancy explaining to Jesus some day . . . no Miranda warnings or attorneys will be present (we all know where the attorneys will be).

Absolutely no concern for the unborn American citizen in the womb of the “mother.”

Yeah well, government funding of this flavor of death is an intrusion to this confidential relationship too.

“She has vetoed Voter ID.”

So, she’s vetoed the protection of our citizens Constitutional right to vote without outsider influence, and vetoed the right for an unborn American citizen to be allowed to live. Kinda’ a classy gal, y’might say. But . . . she was elected by somebody, wasn’t she?

North Carolinians, time for some feedback to the conscience-deadened governor.

Isn't she talking about ObamaCare?

Go to the site and click on “commuity news” That gives you names of towns. If you recognize the towns then you know what state it probably is.

Perdue is a cold, callous baby killer, bought and paid for by the blood-soaked abortion industry.

My apologies to everyone here. I didn’t know another Perdue was governing up in North Carolina. Blood on her hands if pro-abortion.

Gee, you have said it all.
Perdue kills chickens with more compassion than she has for babies.
What would she do with illegal alien baby chickens?
Probably make sure they got food stamps and free medical care.
