In the article it says that "'...about two dozen women showed up clutching coat-hangars and signs that read: 'My Body, My Choice' and 'Shame!'" This is true, but what is not understood or even thought about is that there are consequences over which we have no control when we choose to be disobedient to God's commandments. The "Shame" is theirs for their choices.

I have yet to hear a legitimate reason for the decision to abort to take longer than 5 months (20 weeks) to make. Also don't understand why even those who favor abortion wouldn't want the clinics and doctors to meet certain criteria to practice safely. Can anyone enlighten me on those?

"It is our responsibility and duty to give voice to the unborn individuals."

That’s the one statement by Gov. Perry that reveals true intent. Does anyone believe it was really about clinical standards? Requiring doctors to have hospital admittance privileges required of no other doctors in other types of specialist clinics can serve no purpose other than to hinder the operation of abortion clinics. People see that for what it is.

People supporting abortions:

* what percentage of them support gay marriage?
* what percentage vote democrat?
* what percentage feel we're destroying the earth with pollution?
* what percentage feel government should regulate our activities?
* what percentage feel political leaders should take from responsible successful people, and spent it?

Is there a pattern here?
