It seems that opponents of government regulation are again complaining about the overreach of government in regulating businesses. the strange thing is that the people who are complaining are many of the same people who normally support government regulations. Abortion debate skewers political pieties | Richmond Times-Dispatch Personally, I agree with them, regulations that require hallways be wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs, and those that require a business to supply adequate parking, are ridiculous. Yet the same people that think it is perfectly reasonable to demand that small store have handicap access object to the same requirements for abortion clinics because it infringes on a woman's right to choose. They argue this even though the regulations don't directly impact the women who are seeking abortions. The cost of regulations is out of hand in this country, and if it takes them being indiscriminately applied to the sacred cows of the left to drive this point home I think the cost is well worth it.
