I actually agree. AS much as I want to see a win here, it should be an outright ban.
The real victory in this bill is that death centers now have to clean up to medical standards, which should have been there all along. It will force many out of business. But that’s about it.
So, if you shut down some sub-par Nazi death camps, but “legally” authorize the operation of clean, efficient Nazi death camps, the Nazis will simply build bigger, cleaner, more efficient Nazi death camps.
If you’ve got the governmental power to regulate mass murder, you have the power to stop the bloodshed.
It’s a huge step in the right direction.
There are just 678 clinics (as of 2011) in all of America. This is down from 2200.
Kinda like what "the anointed one" via the EPA is doing to the Coal Industry, dang it is delicious schadenfreude when we use their methods and tactics on them...
An outright total ban would be struck down by our masters on the Sup Court. So you’d get the Texas GOP demonized even more for an action that has no hope of standing. At least this bill might survive if the current High Court hears it.
Even if the Sup Court did the right thing and left it to the states, a total ban would not go over well with the public. Yeah, I know, it’s a matter of principle. An innocent life is an innocent life, but the vast majority of Americans oppose a total ban on abortion. Most Texans oppose a total ban on abortion.
A ban on abortions past the first trimester is about the best conservatives can hope for without being punished by voters.
