Louisiana senate passes evil anti-abortion bill

The Times-Picayune reports:

Legislation that will further limit access to abortion in Louisiana and would likely close three of the state’s five abortion clinics overwhelmingly passed the state Senate with a vote of 34-3 Wednesday.

Due to the addition of technical amendments, the bill will head back the state House of Representatives for another vote before going to the governor’s desk. The lower chamber voted overwhelmingly to pass the legislation — which is more or less the same now — the last time they saw it. So the bill is expected to face little to no opposition as it crosses the finish line in the Legislature.

Back to forced pregnancy and unsafe abortions! Back to women having no way out of the trap. Back to women being unable to plan their own lives.

Gov. Bobby Jindal has backed the proposed abortion restrictions since the beginning of this year’s legislative session in Louisiana. It is expected that he will sign the measure quickly into law.

But…Roe v Wade?

Tough shit, suckers!

Sponsored by Rep. Katrina Jackson, D-Monroe, the legislation would require physicians who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where the procedures take place. It also imposes the same restrictions — such as a requirement for a 24-hour waiting period — on abortion-inducing medication as  apply to surgical abortions.

Bit by bit, faster and faster, they’re reimposing a total ban on abortion.

Jackson largely based her proposal on a Texas law that has been upheld by a federal court.  The Texas provision has led to widespread closure of abortion clinics in the Lone Star state.

Which was the plan.

Fuck them all.

    Fuck them all. They ought to be ashamed. “Life” is so precious. . . until it’s born. Women were born to be hated.

    Shameful.

    Is there any chance of setting up clinics on native American land in these states to get around state laws, like they did with casinos?

    I think they are even more clever (and sinister) than that – this amounts to a ban on abortion only for the poor, doesn’t it? Because the rich will always find a doctor somewhere with admission rights and will have much less stress in travelling long distances, possibly twice, or renting a hotel to wait 24 hours etc.

    A total ban on safe, legitimate abortions. No lives will be saved. How many unwanted pregancies, dead women and dangerous unlicenced, uncontrolled abortions will it take to prove that this sort of legislation is not only uneffective, but also abusive and immoral?

    It seems that passage to heaven is upon a roadway of the corpses and misery of the vulnerable and disadvantaged…

    Your mistake is thinking that the RWNJs would care about that. In their mind the sluts deserve it for opening their legs.

    This barbarity, of course, leads to gold in the pockets of fly-by-night abortionists. And that’s often barbarity, also.

    @4: sonderval: Interesting? Challenge it under Civil Rights Act, and “separate but equal” under the Constitution? Effectively, as you said, two classes of people are being treated differently – the rich and the poor.
