    Then perhaps hospitals, UCCs and the like should cut costs by not keeping their facilities up to snuff.  I mean as long as they provide a valued service to the community and not too many people die it'll be okay right?

    With all of the funding these "clinics" get there is no reason they can't maintain a clinical standard.  I mean they do perform "surgical" procedures in them.  So at least part of the facility should be considered similar to an ambulatory surgical center shouldn't it?

    Of course the law it targeted at shutting abortion providers down.  Just like the gun control laws are targeted at shutting gun and ammo manufacturers down. Gun control advocates are not about limiting access to guns.  They don't want guns period.  

    I mean hey... we can infringe on your 2nd Amendment rights and that's all fine and dandy.  But hold up a damn minute if you think you're gonna infringe on a woman's right to kill a child.  You heartless bastards!!!!  How dare you demand that a "surgical" clinic maintain standards that are required of actual "surgical" clinics.

      If I decide not to incubate a fetus with my own body, there should not an undue burden with my right to obtain medical services in no way different from any other medical service. Keep you anti-choice laws and regulations off of my and every other woman's bodies and mind your own business. You forced Birthers make me sick.
