There is. Did you know that Mittens made quite a bit of money off abortions?

As noted, if you can find where these regulations are not in place in Texas I will agree with you. I remember in the Gosnell thread these regulations were in effect in Pennsylvania for this other health care providers.



Actually there were 105,000 per 100,000.
then wouldn't be correct to say 105,000 in 200,000 ?

I've not been able to find the law concerning plastic surgeons and admitting requirements but it seems that every plastic surgeon listed on google notes where they have admitting privileges.

Even the ones simply doing hair transplants.

Dr. Siporin is a hair loss expert and board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in hair transplant surgery. He has admitting privileges at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and St. John’s Health Center and has maintained his private practice for over 10 years.

He might have, I have no idea. Stating that we should increase troops in Iraq as opposed to pull them out showed that he wasn't a big fan of life.

Plastic surgeons are specifically trained in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. This training usually consists of three to five years of general surgery and an additional two to three years of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Plastic surgeons are board eligible or board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This certification confirms that the physician has the required training to conduct the various cosmetic and reconstructive techniques. He or she will also usually have surgical and admitting privileges at local hospitals.

Cosmetic surgeon is a generic term referring to any physician who desires to perform elective or cosmetic surgery. He or she may actually be a family physician, OB-GYN, dermatologist, ENT, or some other designation. A medical license gives a doctor the ability to practice any type of medicine. Although these physicians may not have surgical privileges for plastic and reconstructive procedures at local hospitals, it is legal to perform these procedures in an office setting. There is no guarantee that these physicians have completed a surgical residency in plastic surgery.

I'm not sure what this has to do with anything.

Ummm, you brought this up whether cosmetic surgeons have hospital privileges, I was merely pointing out that there's a difference between plastic and cosmetic surgeons. Plastic surgeons have admitting privileges, only some cosmetic surgeons do.

- would ban abortions past 20 weeks of gestation,

- require abortion clinics to become ambulatory surgical centers,

- tighten usage guidelines for the drug RU486 --- good, let's not even prevent unwanted pregnancies

- and require doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic at which they're providing abortion services. (funny that's not required for other legal medical procedures like plastic surgery or boob implants, we know how Texas loves it's boob implants)

But, you know, it's all about the health of the woman.
