Dozens of states make it hard to get abortions

It's amazing how we're going backwards instead of forward when it comes to women in the US. I can't believe the crap some of these states make abortion clinics say

...Texas, which has the most prescriptive counseling laws - requiring, among other things, that doctors tell women abortion is linked with breast cancer. A group of scientists convened by the National Cancer Institute in 2003 concluded abortion did not raise the risk of breast cancer.

In July, a federal appeals court in South Dakota upheld a 2005 law requiring doctors to warn that abortions increase risks for suicide. Scientific research disputes this.

That's what it comes down to - lying to get their way. Like so many other people have said - these people don't think of the consequences of having a baby. They cost money! They're not free! :angry-fire:

Honestly, I don't know of a single doctor, prolife or prochoice, that wants to have legislation TELL them to LIE to patients. Even the most ardent prolife OBGYN I knew was very adamant when explaining the cancer-abortion myth. He was open about being prolife, but he always felt his duty was to teach the facts to his students. I would think, as physicians, we are also teachers and would be truthful to our patients.

As a doc, if I ever came upon a law that tells me to lie to my patients, or to tell them anything that I feel is unnecessary or intrusive, I will make sure to preface it (and stress) I am COMPELLED by law to say this and it does not represent my opinion as a physician In fact, I'd turn it around and try to answer their questions posed by the these legislated comments to set the facts straight.

If I had to tell a patient that abortion causes cancer, I will say, "A bunch of lawyers told me I have to tell you this. As your doc, these are the real facts: blah blah blah. Any questions?" I figure this is my way of turning the tables on those that like to play fast and hard with medical science.

I couldn't think of a good snark comment to add to the button.

Maybe something about "I'm worthy for heaven because I lie for Jesus" or "Lying is only okay when you're lying for Jesus"?

Yes...and haven't they heard of PPD?! I'm not sure how you'd do a direct comparison, but I'd wager the consequences of PPD are worse than any problems you might get from having an abortion.

It must be horrific to be a doctor there and have to lie. I'm not sure I could do it. It's not ethical.

Here ya go :D

It's not as fancy as the other one, which I used a website to make but I didn't want to continue doing that so as to not get in trouble (or cause it).

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
