What Spitzer was up to today before the news broke
MichelleMalkin.com ^ | 3/10/08 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 03/10/2008 4:01:27 PM PDT by madprof98

This morning, NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer had been scheduled to speak to the Family Planning Advocates’ 31st Annual Conference. The abortion racketeers are seeking more money. And he was preparing to push legislators to do their bidding–before he was forced to cancel his appearance.

As payback to his abortion industry supporters, Spitzer had supported “the Reproductive Health & Privacy Protection Act (RHAPP)” under the guise of “codifying Roe v. Wade.” It would:

* Allow non-doctors to perform abortions, including a dentist, a social worker, or a health care practitioner.

* Let girls as young as 12 obtain abortions throughout all 9 months of pregnancy without ever having to tell their parents.

* Force health practitioners or Catholic hospitals to lose their medical licenses if they don’t perform abortions since they would be denying women the “fundamental right” of an abortion.

Greg Mueller of CRC e-mails:

This is only the beginning. The Catholic Church in NY is already slamming Spitzer and New Yorkers for Parental Rights, an independent, newly formed group in opposition to the bill is about to launch a statewide campaign with ads, phone calls and a YouTube video to make sure RHAPP never makes it out of the legislature. It is currently in the State Senate.
There’s more info on the bill here.

Perhaps today’s news will knock the wind out of its sails.

That would be a life-saving silver lining.

SICK! So many of these young girls end up sterile, or dead! If they MUST get aborted they must get a real doctor. Even the real doctors are butchers of the baby and the PG girl. They punture the womb and leave parts of the baby’s body in the womb. Sterility and even death are COMMON. I guess the only good baby in his opinion is a dead one.

Which drive-by media figure will have the cojones to ask Obambi what his positions are, on all of these issues?

* Allow non-doctors to perform abortions, including a dentist, a social worker, or a health care practitioner. * Let girls as young as 12 obtain abortions throughout all 9 months of pregnancy without ever having to tell their parents. * Force health practitioners or Catholic hospitals to lose their medical licenses if they don’t perform abortions since they would be denying women the “fundamental right” of an abortion.

Umm...my opposition to abortion aside, I don't trust a dentist to fiddle around in my mouth for too long, much less tinker with my insides. And social workers? Really? Because, they've done such great work of late?

Never underestimate the Power of Prayer!

The New York State Catholic Conference holds its Public Policy Day on March 11, 2008, in Albany. Catholics from New York State lobby legislators regarding social issues of special concern identified by the bishops as calling for active engagement. The Conference Web site provides succinct briefings on all the topics of concern.

NYS CATHOLIC CONFERENCE

Perhaps this year their voices will be heard.

Otherwise the original Roe v. Wade ruling allowed your friendly neighborhood rootworker to do abortions, or maybe even your hairdresser.

Frankly, I recommend totally privatizing the abortion business ~ just strike it from the law, and remove the practitioners from any special protections of the law.

Let the free market rule!

It would allow the abortionist to determine the “viability” of the fetus, would not allow the criminal prosecution of an abortionist who maims or kills a woman, and would force religious institutions to pay for abortion coverage in their health insurance policies. (from “Life News”)

You’re a little short on facts in that rant. Neither sterility nor maternal death are common outcomes of abortion. During the Soviet era, when the Soviet government was pouring all its resources into military production and not bothering to produce condoms and other contraceptives, researchers found that the AVERAGE Russian woman had had between 9 and 11 abortions — obviously the first 8, 9, or 10 didn’t cause sterility in most women. It was pretty much the only form of birth control being used, and the birth rate was quite low. And believe me, medical care in the Soviet Union was primitive.

He’s a democrap governor. His career is not over merely because he is a sexual degenerate and playing *ahem* with the mob who runs the conglomerate prostitution ring which extends world-wide. The democrats have no moral fiber thus he cannot violate such a thing. He will be lampooned and the entire nature of his criminality and degeneracy will be forgotten by the leftist democrap party. After all, can’t have the democrat governor of a state with two democrat sentaors somehow replaced with a Republican! The democrat party that now exists (as contrasting the one which was replaced) sees nothing amiss in Spitzer’s criminality or degeneracy.

Fact check: If you follow the link in the article to the actual text of the bill, there is absolutely nothing there to suggest that dentists or social workers would acquire authority to perform abortions. I think Michelle has been suckered into believing some hysterical rantings that aren’t based on fact. Probably somebody, somewhere figured out that various provisions in existing law might allow social workers and dentists, under certain circumstances, to prescribe or dispense the “morning after pill”. The idea that the state legislature would even consider a bill that authorized social workers and dentists to perform surgical abortions, or even RU-486 abortions, is ludicrous on its face.

Read Michelle more carefully before you call her a sucker. Many at FR (myself included) consider RU486 to be an abortifacient and social workers would be protected from prosecution for dispensing same under this demonic bill. Even the AMA ought to be against this insaqnity from leftism. As for the governor ... good riddance, except he will have near nothing in the way of punishment for his criminality because he’s a damned democrat.

To: MHGinTN

No, social workers would not be “protected from prosecution for dispensing RU-486”, because social workers are not authorized to dispense RU-486 or even obtain RU-486 without a prescription from a physician. Social workers do not have prescription-writing authority, and federal law requires that RU-486 be provided under the supervision of a physician, and there are additional specific requirements for the physician’s qualifications before the law allows him/her to provide RU-486.

The morning after pill is not RU-486. The morning after pill, or “Plan B”, is available without a prescription to women age 18 or older. There are many situations where a social worker is given authority to provide non-prescription medications to a minor. There are likely some specific situations where a social worker — with or without this bill being passed — is allowed to provide the morning after pill to a minor, probably a minor who is already in state custody and will also be getting physician care via the state. This is hardly the same as social workers “being allowed to perform abortions”. YOU may regard it as “performing an abortion”, but it is not regarded as such by the laws of the land, nor by the medical profession which defines abortion as a termination of an established pregnancy, in other words, post-implantaion.

So the claim that the bill would allow social workers to perform abortions is patently false. If you bother to read the text of the bill, there is no mention whatsoever of social workers.
