    ANOTHER draconian intrusion into people's lives, brought to you by: Republicans; the party of less government in your life.

    Then Oklahoma's Republicans pass a law to protect doctors who lie to patients

    Strict Abortion Measures Enacted in Oklahoma
    By JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr.
    Published: April 27, 2010

    HOUSTON — The Oklahoma Legislature voted Tuesday to override the governor’s vetoes of two abortion measures, one of which requires women to undergo an ultrasound and listen to a detailed description of the fetus before getting an abortion.

    Though other states have passed similar measures requiring women to have ultrasounds, Oklahoma’s law goes further, mandating that a doctor or technician set up the monitor so the woman can see it and describe the heart, limbs and organs of the fetus. No exceptions are made for rape and incest victims.

    A second measure passed into law on Tuesday prevents women who have had a disabled baby from suing a doctor for withholding information about birth defects while the child was in the womb.

    Opponents argue that the law will protect doctors who purposely mislead a woman to keep her from choosing an abortion. But the bill’s sponsors maintain that it merely prevents lawsuits by people who wish, in hindsight, that the doctor had counseled them to abort a disabled child.

    Gov. Brad Henry, a Democrat, vetoed both bills last week. The ultrasound law, he said, was flawed because it did not exempt rape and incest victims and would allow an unconstitutional intrusion into a woman’s privacy.

    Of the other measure, Mr. Henry said, “It is unconscionable to grant a physician legal protection to mislead or misinform pregnant women in an effort to impose his or her personal beliefs on a patient.”

    The Republican majorities in both houses, however, saw things differently. On Monday, the House voted overwhelmingly to override the vetoes, and the Senate followed suit on Tuesday morning, making the two measures law.

    If you don't like what OK does, take a greyhound to one of the 6 states that border it, that's called "Federalism"

    Do Libs know what "Federalism" is?

    It certainly is if you are a progressive or one of their neocon sibs.

    It's never been true that republicans are the party of less intrusion. They like to pretend that, though, and it seems to fool some of their followers.

    Can any of the Progressives here tell us the difference between a State and the Federal government?

    Well, in that case, maybe the southern states can reinstate slavery. I'm sure Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Mississippi Gov. Haley "doesn't amount to diddly" Barbour would be on board.

    I guess the party of less government in people's lives is also willing to renegotiate 'individual freedom' (except for women, Hispanics and any 'other' that doesn't vote Republican)

    From Thomas Jefferson on, Democrats supported the institution and practice of slavery and have depended on class warfare to maintaining their power.

    Jefferson, Jackson, FDR, LBJ, Gore Sr, Byrd, and now Obama, all racists.

    Rather than give up their cheap labor, Democrats fought against their own brothers and separated from the Union.

    FDR appointed a Klansman to SCOTUS

    And a recent Democrat Senate Majority Leader was a real Grand Kleagle of the Klan.

    Even now, Democrats support Illegal Aliens not to put them on a glidepath to becoming American citizens, but only to add them to their plantation where they can be fed Democrat Government cheese.

    Frank, you have a very serious mental disorder. One obvious manifestation is your projection of right wing xenophobia onto 'others'

    So it should be YOUR decision, not hers. Do you pea brains EVER consider the total lack of REAL freedom you oppose? People have all the freedom they want, just as long as it conforms to YOUR beliefs and dogma.

    Are YOU willing to pay to raise that child pea brain?

    I'd be willing to pay to raise that child. Of course it would be raised in my house under my rules.

    :rolleyes:

    ...ah yes, the conservative 'pro-lifers'.. :rolleyes:

    ...many of whom will cheerlead for mass murder, warmongering, etc..

    ...these stooooooopid fucks will claim to be for 'limited government' :rolleyes: ...as they scheme to foist the abortion polic(e)y upon us..

    ...these stooooooooooopid abortion prohibitionist fucks can't get it through their thick skulls that a fetus inside a woman attached to the woman's umbilical cord IS NONE OF THEIR STINKING MOTHERFUCKING GLENN BECK RUSE LOWBROW BUSINESS..

    ...and these stoooooopid abortion prohibitionists never/rarely answer simple questions like, 'what penalties, specifically, would you attach for violation of your stinking busybody abortion laws?,"...

    ..(hint: ..keep your stinking nose in your own womb and out of others' wombs, you stinking, phony, conservative republicrat 'pro-lifers!') ;)

    ...the rest of you, have a great day!

    Law, law enforcement, and government is charged with the protection of the human lives within the country... even if that life is dependent on someone else... just because a person in a vegetative state is dependent on machines or others to survive, does not give the right to someone else to arbitrarily murder them.... it should be the same with the developing human within the mother
