    @JimCO55 don't see how that justifies it. no government should have the power to tell a woman (or a man) what decisions to make about their health. but that was not about her health - it was about her baby's health. and no woman (or man, or government) should be allowed to kill a baby. the infant deserved the opportunity to live or die on its own. the only real question is when we can consider that mass of cells a baby. seems pretty clear in this case that it was a baby.

    @gherlone : Well of course it was a baby, she was obviously looking forward to her birth. But then again ... you're not the one the doctor told that your baby is severely brain damaged. You're not the one that needed to decide to carry on a doomed pregnancy and then wait for the baby to die or to end its suffering now.

    But if you are ever in that position ... I will respect which ever decision you make with your spouse and family ... that's why it's called 'choice'!

    >>>She is just endorsing more murders in my opinion. <<<

    Not according the rule-of-law she's not. Thank goodness we are still a nation under rule-of-law. We don't have sharia yet.

    Of course your opinion matters. It helps show who is for rule-of-law and who is not.

    @JimCO55

    The fable that a woman's choice to murder her pre-born child is her right under the, "It's my body" argument, is scientifically inaccurate.

    Actually, the woman has a body within her body. The child's body is individual and distinct from his mother's body. He has a separate dermis and skeletal structure. Separate muscles and neurological system. The child can have a separate blood type and has a separate and distinct DNA structure. He is as much an individual as you or I.

    This is why Texicans should be allowed to secede they have their own Sharia law brought to you by the extremists of the Republican and T'Bagger parties. Secede and we can build a big electrified fence with a moat full of alligators around it. LOL!

    Yeah right, we can't even take care of the borders we DO need...besides, the texas border fence would never be finished, and Dems wouldn't mind, since they hope any undocumented immigrants from Texas would vote Dem. Hyperbole works both ways.

    There may be hope yet looks like the Lt. Governor says the bill failed to meet the deadline. Have to wait to see.

    If some people refuse to civilize themselves in short order, I'm all for the Constitutionally minded original intent American Patriots to migrate to the mid-West and set up communities based on Christian Values.

    @TheLoneRanger

    And then would they leave the rest of us alone and stop wanting the government to control our lives?

    To all the right wingers: It's a choice between a woman and her doctor. The state should not be getting involved in how to restrict women from getting the procedure done. Yes I am pro-choice and support the death penalty (like they do in Texas)...If we want the government to stay out of our lives, this is a great place to start.

    Children never had rights. Everything always had to go through a guardian. Children can't drive or vote either or go to the military.

    You are just being hyperbolic.
  • #55

    @Starsplash that is completely false. Children do have constitutional protection even if some of their rights are limited.

    P.S. Voting, driving, and military service are not rights.

    @Yank Not for ones that hasn't been born. that is still under debate and hasn't been confirmed.

    Ok fine, children do have some constitutional rights, but you still however need an adult or a guardian in it regardless.

    Typical idiot Democrat. For gun control and against the protective rights of citizens but opposes any law that will restrict the murder of innocent little babies. Typical liberal scumbag.

    I agree - killing the unborn is a horrible, terrible thing. That's why God is such a monster: think of all the unborn children he drowned in the Flood.

    I think humans should be held to a higher standard than God, don't you?

    I don't like abortion. However, women have the right to make all decisions concerning what happens to their bodies. If women loose self autonomy then men should loose self autonomy as well.

    When the right filibusters the left acts like he are horrible and evil yet it is heroic when they do it. Perhaps it's time to stop the hypocrisy and let the people of the states decide.

    The filibuster rules for the Texas Senate are pretty restrictive. You have to remain standing (you cannot lean on your desk) in the same spot, you cannot eat, drink, or go to the bathroom, or talk about anything "off-topic" (apparently talking about the previous year's abortion bills, or sonograms for expecting mothers are "off-topic" to this year's "mother's health bill" according to the Republican Lt. Governor). Even Rand Paul took breaks during his filibuster, yielding to Ted Cruz (which is allowed under US Senate rules) and was allowed to talk about whatever he wanted "like reading names off a telephone book."

    Also most Republican US Senate filibusters, the filibustering senator isn't even standing in the room (aka "secret holds"). They use it purely as a procedural tactic to try an hold legislation hostage to block it forever (versus 1 day like a true filibuster). In 2009, the Republican effectively filibustered or obstructed bills 100 times in less than a year. Republican Senator Mitch McConnell actually became the first senator EVER to filibuster his own bill - he tried to pass a bill that would solve the debt-ceiling problem... but might make the Democrats look bad to liberals if they passed it. However, he was surprised when they accepted his "compromise" and he filibustered his own bill... in order to be able to say that the Democrats "refuse to compromise on the debt-ceiling" to the public.

    If ALL US Senate filibusters were more-like the Texas style... I would be for it. It lets someone have their say for 10-16 hours... but they cannot filibuster EVERYTHING for the entire year.

    PLEASE stop with the NONSENSE Republicans. You will NEVER Win the White House AGAIN if you keep up this CRAP. American's transition into a filthy, hopeless, Collectivist DUMP will be YOUR fault.

    We need more than comments about this subject. Write letters to Ms. Davis thanking her for her hard work. Share personal stories, if you have one or your views in general, about this issue. Her successful filibuster is attributable to letters that she read on the floor. Note that the Republicans tried to end her efforts by claiming she was using redundant material. There will be a next time, we have not heard the last of these "storm trooper Republicans."

    The Republican hypocrites don't like government intrusion into American's lives except for when it comes to abortion....somehow they violate their whole philosophy and want the government to tell women what to do about their health and their lives and whether they bear a child or not. Two faced hypocrites they are…Republicans completely lack integrity.

    @MongoAPillager only an ignorant brainwashed and conditioned "christian" mind assumes that a fetus is a baby. A human soul does not occupy a body until the moment of birth. Republicans have a myopic and culturally conditioned world view which comes from outside of themselves ... from what others tell them. They believe their relative 2nd hand opinions are objective truth. This is because the average Republican has an average or below IQ and their consciousness is primitive and undeveloped. Their psyches are as yet unexamined and they project their shadows onto women, minorities and the poor. They totally and completely lack empathy and compassion and are psycho spiritual babies.

    @Starsplash - Yes, and while I disagree with Rand Paul on many issues, he did at least have the stones to stand there and conduct that filibuster himself, instead of having some arbitrary "rule" do the talking for him. Kudos to this politician for doing the same.

    @Starsplash I think the Texan had a tougher task. Lone Star state fillibuster rules include staying on topic, not a gift Senator Paul is famous for.
