    Tennessee bill would force state to publicly name abortion doctors

    Known as H.B. 3308, or the “Life Defense Act of 2012,” the bill would not actually level any real “defense” of human embryos. Instead, it would require the Tennessee Department of Health to publish more detailed information about abortions carried out in the state, including the names of doctors who performed them and the hospitals they work with.

    It would also require detailed statistics on abortions, including time, date, the woman’s medical conditions at the time, the age of the fetus, the type of procedure performed, the location of the procedure, and the woman’s age, race and marital status, along with details on how many times she has been pregnant.

    While the bill’s proponents point to language in the legislative text that protects the identity of each patient, critics argue that the enhanced statistics reporting could be used to identify women who’ve had abortions in small, rural communities.

    Don’t Let Tennessee Publish Abortion Doctor and Patient Information Online

    Tennessee lawmakers are considering a bill that would result in the online publication of doctors performing abortions as well the demographics of those who receive an abortion. This new measure could lead to the endangerment of abortion doctors and the possible identification of individuals obtaining abortions.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Matthew Hill of Jonesborough would require physicians performing abortions to hold hospital privileges in either the home or adjacent county of the woman seeking an abortion. It was approved 72-24 on Thursday. Eight Democrats voted for the mostly Republican-backed proposal.

    Rep. Gary Odom, D-Nashville, was among critics who questioned why abortions would be singled out for extra restrictions on doctors, when others like tonsillectomies to eye operations would not.

    He questioned Hill's assertion that abortions are being performed illegally in Tennessee by out-of-state doctors. Hill later acknowledged that he had no direct knowledge of such activity.

    While publishing the names of doctors was eventually dropped, the other onerous parts weren't. Good. I WANT Republicans to run on this stuff. I'm sure it's the path to the presidency. That and "Education is for snobs" and "let him die".

    So identifying abortion doctors somehow equals targeting people who get abortions?

    Talk about a lie.

    They've already excersized their willingness to take not-so-well coded instructions from their leader Herr Palin..

    They've already shown they have no respect for neither God, man nor life...

    That's pretty crappy making them a matter of public record, no other purpose than to make the risk of public exposure a deterrent.

    Why do we have so much ammo on the radicalness of the right?

    You people shouldn't be mad at me for pointing it out...you should be mad at your leaders and/or yourselves for being so reprehensible.

    Only God can save you people.
