Medical informed consent is a legal procedure to ensure that a patient knows all of the risks and costs involved in a particular course of treatment. The elements of an informed consent include informing the patient of the nature of the treatment, possible alternative treatments, and the potential risks and benefits of the treatment.

When a woman presents to a physician's office complaining of a lump in her breast; does any liberal really believe it's okay to simply remove the patient's breast without first providing a thorough work up and informed consent?
The patient understandably wants as much information as possible before agreeing to a mastectomy.
A woman's breast, voluptuous as it might be, cannot be granted more Constitutional protection than an unborn baby.

I strongly believe that human life begins at the moment of conception.
However, regardless as to what an individual's position is on when life begins, I submit that most folks have no idea how fast a recognizable human form develops in the womb.
Requiring a pregnant woman to view a sonogram and listen to the real-time heart beat of her baby BEFORE she undergoes elective termination simply debunks the myth that a second trimester baby is just a formless inanimate bowl of grape jelly-like material. 
By concealing such information, how can a pregnant woman be given a valid informed consent?

So why are liberals against a female patient having as much relevant knowledge as possible before undergoing a major procedure? 
Do liberals think that ignorance is bliss for pregnant women because they are too stupid to evaluate pertinent medical information and make rational choices on that basis?

The answer is painfully obvious..........if most of the women who presented to an abortion clinic actually knew what they were about to do they wouldn't do it and the liberals damn well know it.

Texas Governor Rick Perry supports the premise that knowledge is power and should be embraced instead of feared.
The mind is no doubt a terrible thing to waste; but it is incomparable to wasting the life of an unborn baby.................and that is precisely why the governor is putting this legislation on the fast track.

"It's pretty unbelievable, given the state of the state," said Rochelle Tafolla, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood in Houston. "We're facing an unprecedented budget crisis and this bill is completely unnecessary."
Well what is more uneccessary: the politically correct rampant fraud and abuse in government or the birth of
innocent babies?

Notwithstanding, Govenor Perry IS addressing the budget crisis in similar expediency by announcing four (4) other emergency items for legislators to consider: eminent domain reform, ending "sanctuary city" policies that don't require police to check the immigration status of people they stop or arrest, a voter identification bill, and calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would mandate a balanced federal budget.

The budget will go up and go back down again through time, but the guilt that begins growing in a woman's heart when she makes that uninformed decision never gets smaller, not even for a second. Why not let a woman considering killing her unborn child out of selfish reasons speak with a woman who did make that choice and regrets it every day? Let her meet with a couple or two who would give anything to adopt that child as their own? 9 months of slight discomfort or embarassment is nothing compared to living with that kind of guilt the rest of her life.


There are some liberals who believe that taking our guns will make us all safe and cozy, so yes, I suspect that your title is true.

Roe v. Wade allows women a choice. Their choice not yours. It does not force anyone to decide one way or the other as you would like. Right wingers like you want women with unwanted pregnancies to ruin their lives by keeping an unwanted baby by rape or incest or whatever or to go to the days of back alley abortions which don't just remove fetuses they sometimes kill real people like the mom.

11:13....."forcing her to keep an unwanted baby" How do you know that baby is unwanted? Have you seen the amount of people sitting on adoption lists? Most are caring enough to help the woman with regard to rape crisis or whatever else you think all these woman are dealing with. Go in to an abortion clinic for a day and count how many of those woman are there because of rape.....very unlikely you'll find that is the reason they are having the abortion.

Black Ink,
You are such a pious hypocrite. Your pro death penalty posts make your anti abortion stance laughable. The Constitution supports abortion and will soon outlaw the death penalty. You and your small group of supporters are a bunch of rabid losers.

Black Ink,

Many insiders in Austin say that Gov. Perry is a homosexual. If this rumor were to be true, would your opinions of him change?

George W.'s daughter has now voiced her support of same sex marriage. Should she be condemned?

Anon 4:06,

Any one who judges another individual based on mere rumor or innuendo is a fool.

When LBJ was running for Congress early in his political career he once suggested to a campaign manager that they spread a rumor claiming his political opponent practiced bestiality. LBJ's campaign manager, knowing this accusation to be false, incredulously asked, "Why would we do such a thing?" LBJ responded, "I want to see Mr. X deny having sex with farm animals to the nation."

Rumors, innuendos, misrepresentations and blood libel have no place in legitimate political debate.

You are obviously baiting on an issue that is inappropriate and totally irrelevant to the topic at hand.
