    The far-reaching bill could threaten commonsense laws requiring licensed physicians to perform abortions, placing basic health and safety regulations on abortion clinics, and regulating telemedicine abortions. Also under threat are state laws limiting late-term abortions performed after 20 weeks, when the child can feel pain, or prohibiting sex-selective abortion. And ultrasound requirements and waiting periods – policies that have provided women the information and time to consider their decision – would likewise be jeopardized by S. 1696.

    Are you really shaking your head Bill? Can you just not believe that someone in the Senate would bring up a bill that had no chance of passing in the House? A bill that was more about politics than actually getting something done? Do you really find such an idea unprecedented? Or is it just that it's the Democratically controlled Senate doing it this time? Because God knows if this idea causes you to shake your head, then the House's 50+ bills to repeal the ACA, and who knows how many other politically motivated non starter bills, must cause you to walk around with a Costco size bottle of Excedrin Migraine to counteract all that head shaking.

    30 something Dems have co-sponsored it. Those fat white liberal lawyers in DC just love killing those black babies.

    It's just the Dems protecting a core constituency….the keep your hands off my body unless you're giving me the free birth control handshake crowd. Basically, the Sandra Fluke's of the world.

    The NIH, Surgeon General and the U.S.' top physicians could all testify before Congress that this bill would result in the killing of 1,000,000 babies a year, and the Dems would still back it.

    How is giving somebody the option to use birth control putting hands on their body? That makes zero sense.

    As for the "killing of 1,000,000 babies", reasonable people disagree at what point a fetus becomes a baby. So why you may see an abortion at 2 weeks as murder, many others do not.

    It's not giving them the option….the option's always been there. It's a matter of who pays for it and coercing those religiously opposed to it to provide it.

    And I am most certain I don't see many things your way, especially the killing of a human life form.

    After running on jobs in 2010 and retaking the House, I seem to recall the first bill passed had to deal with ambition.

    It's folly to say that just one party has the market cornered on stupidity.

    do not think shutting it down is the answer-what the answer is for me is to go back to our Constitution and quit bastardizing it for the exception
