With the placement of a new President on Jan 20th, do you think abortion laws will change soon after? Good? Bad? Ugly?


I see Arizona is looking at change:

Arizona Lawmakers Likely to Submit New Abortion Bills With Napolitano Leaving
by Steven Ertelt

December 29, 2008

Phoenix, AZ (LifeNews.com) -- Members of the Arizona legislature appear likely to renew some of the abortion debates of past sessions with the likelihood that pro-abortion Gov. Janet Napolitano won't be in office to veto their bills. Napolitano has vetoed eight pro-life bills that would have put common-sense abortion limits in place.


Those bills range from measures to inform women of the risks of abortion, prohibit non-doctors from doing abortions, and strengthened current laws requiring parental consent before a minor can have an abortion.


Rep. Andy Tobin, a Republican from Paulden, says those bills could be re-filed and his bill to ban the practice of partial-birth abortion will make a comeback.


"I believe the people of Arizona were for some of the bills she vetoed," Tobin told the Cronkite News Service. "And I do not see a problem in resubmitting the same bill without any change if it is something I think the people want."


As LifeNews.com has reported, pro-abortion incoming president Barack Obama selected Napolitano to become secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.


The pro-abortion governor is expected to have no trouble receiving Senate confirmation, which will likely happen in late January.

Naw, really? Lack of sex ed leads to unplanned pregnancies and pro-abortionists? Who'da thunk?


Guess we know what Nobama's planning...for someone who's all about peace, he sure does have a thing for killing the innocent.


Not fond of socialism myself. The good part is Hilary will be too old to run again and next election we'll all be sick and tired of Demosocialists and a good 'ole Republican will win.

I hope your state doesn't end up as messed up as the article predicts (hopes.)

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

You know, the older I get and the longer I'm a mother, the less of a stomach/desire I have for debate, especially about this issue. I just shake my head at the ignorance some people have.


As for whether I think abortion laws will change with Obama in office, the answer is . . . I'm not sure. If McCain would have been elected I was confident that his appointment(s) to the Supreme Court would have led to the overturning of Roe v. Wade and with Obama in office I no longer fear that. I will hope that he can make some progress on the "partial birth abortion" ban that Bush implemented for the sake of pregnant women everywhere.


I am deeply relieved to have a president elect like Obama, and also relieved to live in a state like MA where we now have a common sense governor like Deval Patrick.

It's the term made popular by George W. Bush. Its medical name is actually "intact dilation and extraction." Here's a link to a description of it:

http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Intact+dilation+and+extraction

Some people think that with the banning of this procedure in the U.S. (an act passed in 2003), that 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions were completely banned. Instead, doctors are forced to use regular dilation and extraction, which involves a combination of vacuum aspiration and dilation and curettage. Essentially, instead of removing an intact fetus (allowing a woman with a wanted pregnancy that went awry to have a body to bury), they cut the fetus into pieces and then remove it. This dramatically increases the risk of uterine puncture.

Do you by chance have a link to an article about this that is not written by a pro-life news source? They are quite clearly biased.

I have no idea what I think will happen but I think using the term "pro-abortion" to describe both the president-elect and governor is disgusting. Never once have I seen Obama preach about the "goodness" of abortion or encourage it over giving birth. What I have seen is him support a woman's right to choose.

HUGE. DIFFERENCE.

Going to try and cure the nauseated feeling I have from reading that crap, now.
