    I don't know, I got it. I feel killing a kid at 20 wks old is kind of offensive too...at least the coat hangers make better pictures than dead babies do at 20 weeks.

    Well celebrate, then. Because now both woman and her fetus will have a good chance of dying, as women seek to self-abort or go to quack "doctors" who will do them no good. Texas hasn't stopped abortions in their state. They just made sure to raise the death toll for desperate women who decide they must have one.

    20 week abortions happen due to severe fetal deformities. Very rarely (and likely, never) do women wake up at 5 months and say whoops, forgot to get that abortion! It's more because of conditions like anencephaly. Why do we want to force women to carry to term if it's not what's right for them? How would you react if told your child would die moments after birth?

    @Zazziness If your willing to break the law, or to wait until 20 weeks to abort your child you deserve nothing less. If a woman is to irresponsible to use protecting, or to lazy to get it done before then then they bring it upon themselves.

    @Arumizy I love it! A "pro-life" person who admits that you are glad at the thought of a pregnant woman dying if she doesn't live her life as you dictate!

    Most "pro-life" people try to hide the fact they hold women in complete contempt. Good for you for admitting you don't give two figs about real, breathing human beings -- only fetuses.

    I didn't know wire coat hangers were still available. Maybe at a second hand shop? I've said it many times and I will say it again. LET THEM SPEAK. Now the entire world knows what a sick twisted f*** he and his kind really are.

    @Libertarian_MS

    An argument involving semantics and does not change the point that both mother and fetus/child are endangered. Two deaths rather than just one.

    Unfortunately, desperate women mutilating themselves with coat hanger abortions when medical abortions are not available isn't a myth. So for those who think abortions are "killing babies" -- kudos. Texas has done the unspeakably cruel and arranges it so not only fetuses die but the pregnant women, too.

    That's what the anti-choice people want to ignore. We've lived in times when abortion was illegal and all it did was kill women. It didn't stop abortion. But they live in a fantasy land and they don't care how many people die as a result of their foggy thinking.

    Oh well. They can join their baby in death. Murder shouldn't be easy, if these women want to commit suicide via coat hanger, I have a closet of them. Just make sure you rinse them off before you give them back.

    @Pr0-Lif3 Oh boy -- you're out of the closet and revealing your true feelings about human beings, aren't you? Don't give two flips about a person - only fetuses in the womb.

    Once they're out of the womb? Don't want to support programs to feed hungry kids, don't want universal health care, don't want to pay for public education and you sure as hell don't care about the pregnant woman. Pretty despicable, immoral, hypocritical lot of petty dictators, really.

    @Zazziness Blah, blah! Throwing out accusations, hoping they'll stick. I work in public education and give to baby clothing, money, and food to Crisis Pregnancy Centers that actually help women and children. I also give to Children's Homes. All you care about is protecting women who want to kill their offspring.

    "Liberals outraged".....uhhhh when are they not outraged? It's one of their two perpetual emotional states. Outrage or offended.

    Since it is likely that Liberals and Democrats would be the ones needing to use the coat hangers to remedy their promiscuity, thros of passion or out right failure to plan for consequences, maybe we should tell them to go ahead and use the coat hangers.

    Engage in your stupidity and thin the herd. Save us the trouble of having to generate more votes later.

    Liberals and Democrats are not a separate species, jackwagon. Geez, conservatives who don't understand science, at all, should not be allowed to vote on issues which involve science.

    Yes only liberals. It's not like the governor of a state would take her daugher out of high school as she's putting on a few extra pounds and claim she's ill then allow her to give birth and claim it is her own when nobody who worked with her was even aware she was pregnant. That would NEVER happen in the real world. Unless, as you say, they were a liberal. Not some tea party darling. (I bet a DNA test could clear it up but don't test the daddy, the birth certificate is probably right on that which goes to explaining why it is so damned defective)

    I said the same even before Erickson wich I Highly regard .The woman chooses to kill their child. Other than rape,incest,or to protect the mothers life then risk your own for convenience.

    The thing that really gripes me about this is that he wasn't trying to make any sort of a point, He was just being a nasty schmuck for the fun of it.

    I truly hope that nobody thinks he's funny, or even acceptable...

    I think you are partially correct. The real story is not the 20 Weeks which accounts for .5% of all TX abortions. .. it is the TRAP law used that's makes his comment more realistic. 36 of 41 clinics will be closed by end of year because of admitting privileges and hospital requirements that makes it nearly impossible to comply with and will effect all of west TX. Abortion rights at 1 week are gone unless you can afford to drive hundreds of miles and then they usually make you come back 48 hours after forced ultrasound that you are forced to pay for and then return for an abortion in a state that has a huge population, high healthcare uninsured rate of around 25% and the state has made medicaid hard to get, won't do medicaid expansion and planned parenthood which is 97% women's health care and screening and prenatal care has been starved of funding. With these obstacles, poor women in west TX may try dangerous stuff like coat hangers or go to Mexico which may be equally as dangerous. Women would not be fighting this hard for a 20 week ban which is rare and not done because the pregnancy is un wanted if they didn't know that the real purpose of this law is to make abortion at any level difficult, costly, and dangerous. I live in AZ who passed a 20 week ban that was struck down as unconstitutional recently. TX and the other states that have passed the 20 week ban know they will lose in court, but the TRAP law that shuts the majority of clinics will eat away at access. The people with the most resources financially will still have access at the cost of time loss (which isn't a big deal when you can afford time) and will force the poor to do desperate things. I have not read of women who at 20 weeks choose abortion. It is chosen for them by circumstances of their own health or the fetus will never live a minute outside of womb even if it is brought to full term due to massive development problems like missing a brain. I hadn't thought of this, but obviously women get cancer during pregnancy and radiation can cause mutations or drain the mother her own ability to survive. A poster suggested going across state lines without understanding most policies aren't covered when you cross state lines.

    @Center

    His comments weren't about abortion, they were about being an asshole in front of his home crowd because he thought they'd get off on it, and he's probably right.

    @harold_lloyd I want to be clear with you that I wasn't disagreeing with you and you make another point that he was rubbing it in and being an asshole. He doesn't have the power of the media that Hannity and Rush Limbaugh has in the hate mongering department. I don't pay attention to him because he has no real influence. I think it is important to point out that the 20 week ban is a red herring. It is the copy and paste of TRAP legislation that makes abortion unavailable to many red states due to the closing down the majority of clinics because of targeted regulations that serve no purpose.

    @Center
    It's pretty clear that the ultimate goal is to eliminate access to abortion.
    When Texas turns into a blue state, they can fix it. Until then we have to rely on the courts to protect the right to have abortion realistically available.

    Don't much care for the poll choices: Erickson was offensive AND misunderstood. That's Twitter. He was not sufficiently funny, though, so I say, waterboard him!
