Skip to comments.Rick Perry's demeaning abortion doctrine (leftist whining)
Posted on 09/06/2011 1:28:28 PM PDT by Colonel Kangaroo
Rick Perry's chances at passing himself off as a reasonable Republican were diminished considerably yet again this week, when the Centre for Reproductive Rights secured a victory against a draconian anti-abortion regulation Perry rushed through the legislature in May, claiming while doing so that it was an emergency measure. When US district judge Sam Sparks rejected the law and blocked enforcement, he created an occasion for the national media to look more closely at Perry's record on women's rights. What they'll find is that Perry goes far beyond the usual anti-abortion platitudes: he not only bears a zealous hatred of abortion rights, but also a hostility to contraception and sex education. While many states have mandatory ultrasound laws, the Texas bill rushed into law by Perry goes many steps further. The law requires a woman seeking an abortion to endure an anti-choice lecture delivered by a doctor who doesn't agree with the content, which gave judge Sparks the chance to reject the law on freedom of speech grounds. But what's truly alarming about the law is the searing contempt for women's dignity and intelligence baked right into it. Women would be required to go through an uncomfortable, invasive vaginal probe sonogram in order to get the picture and audible heartbeat required. They would then be sent home 24 hours to "think" about the decision, putting the Texas government in the position of a schoolteacher sending women to the corner.

The more I read, the more I like this guy!
I believe Obama said he wanted abortion “rare”. How can they complain?
The man does leave a trail and I like what he’s leaving so far.
And I should care about the Brits' opinion because.......?
***...he not only bears a zealous hatred of abortion rights...***
There are no such ‘rights’ given by the Constitution. And they’re not in any way God-given rights either.
Methinks Mr. Perry simply hates the killing of innocent human beings, particularly those who haven’t even had the opportunity to see the light of day.
That’s a plus in my book.
Does Miss Marcotte want a little cheese with her whine?
Just about the only medical practice where pretending that thing on the screen isn’t exactly what it looks like won’t set a doctor up for serious legal and licensing trouble later.
” ...draconian anti-abortion regulation... “
Preventing the slaughter of a million completely helpless, utterly innocent, literally voiceless Americans whose only crime is having been called into existence at an inconvenient time every year is draconian.
Oh. Yeah, now I see it. I just had to stand on my head, jam my pocket knife in my frontal lobes and screw it around a bit. It’s all perfectly clear now. I think the LSD helped a lot.
Killing babies is so dignified!
