    More proof that the GOP is only supportive of private businesses that they approve of. More proof that the GOP just looooves regulations when they're levied against business that they disapprove of. More proof that the GOP is more interested in banning abortions than they are interested in the health of women. Hey, Virginia legislature, how about working on bringing jobs to your state, instead of subjecting abortion clinics to draconian rules and regulations that no other type of clinic in the state will have to abide by? Hopefully, a judge blocks this nonsense, like one did to Kansas' slightly more lenient abortion law.

    It's funny how they flip from "deregulate" to "regulate them yeah!"

    Well, I think this is a little silly, but no more silly than the way liberals use Spotted Owls and Snail Darters to stop construction projects they don't like.

    My own opinion. Abortion is bad and most women who have them don't have them for compelling reasons. That said, making them illegal, especially on a state level, is an impracticality. Prohibition didn't work. The war on drugs has been a horrific failure. Gun bans don't work. You can hire a hooker pretty easily these days. Illegality doesn't work if a large enough section of the population ignores the law with impunity.

    And here's where I go really, uncharacteristicly non-right wing-

    If Pro-Life people were really interested in reducing the number of abortions, then they'd support policies that resulted in less unwanted pregnancies or pregnancies women can't afford. They support more generous family and medical leave time. they'd support stronger sex education and more girl's sports teams and activities.
