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.
I just love it when neither the post nor the link has any information as to the location.
“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?
Isn't she talking about ObamaCare?
Since when does gov perdue care about the rights of private citizens from mandated government intrustion?

Everyone here knows nothing about everything. Typical & total BS. Georgia’s Governor is Nathan Deal.. Long time now.
Neither post nor link knows Georgia’s Governor is Nathan Deal, NOT Sonny Perdue.
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.
the state is always listed under TOPICS:, just above KEYWORDS:
In this case - North Carolina
My apologies to everyone here. I didn’t know another Perdue was governing up in North Carolina. Blood on her hands if pro-abortion.
A 24 hr waiting period is too extreme?
