LOLZ Im lyke a doctur!1

"Given we can't affect Roe versus Wade, this is an effort to try to reduce the number of abortions, which we can do," said Rep. Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City.

What the hell? So, if we can't drive you to the back alleys altogether, we'll just guilt you into forfeiting your rights.

Why do they feel that lying is okay? Medical professionals have repeatedly insisted that it is impossible to tell at which point a fetus can feel pain. Therefore, why must lawmakers push their beliefs about the issue (And I mean, considering they ARE medical professionals, I mean, just look at the bit on "Rep. Tim Harris, R-Marion, who has bachelor's degrees in political science and music performance. . ." Hell yes a bachelor's in pol. science and music performance makes you an OB-GYN. PLEEZ make my decisions for me Mr. Man) into an ill-informed law designed to target women who are ignorant of anything regarding fetal development and their own bodies and who are possibly scared to death and willing to listen to anything that a professional will tell them?

Not only that, but we have to make stupid laws about how abortion clinics can be, you know, because we have to protect the womenz and having a too small hallway or a room that's a foot too wide will certainly equal imminent death.

My question is: Did they measure the width of the alleyway women used to die of sepsis in?

So, we have to "protect the womenz", and, in the process, take away money from clinics and put ridiculous regulations on them so that they have to renovate, move, or close up. That kind of. . .oh, I don't know. . .MAKES NO SENSE.

Indiana = teh dumb.
