Of the 3 abortionists who work at the clinic, only one has hospital admitting privileges and he has not kept them up to date. He is also the one who only occasionally attends. The other two, when a patient 'goes sour' and needs to be hospitalized, cannot admit the patient. She is obliged to get to the hospital and find another physician to take care of her - who may or may not know what has happened to cause her problem. The state legislature thinks that women who are receiving this kind of care deserve to have the same quality medical care as those having other elective procedures. For instance, a dr. in our state can't do a tummy tuck outpatient unless he/she can guarantee to be able to admit that patient if there are problems. The abortion clinic has refused to comply with the law. Hopefully they will soon be closed if they cannot get drs who are able to admit to at least one of the local hospitals. Regardless how one feels about abortion there is no excuse for not demanding that all clinics play by the same rules and keep their patients safe.

Because the state of Mississippi has one of the highest concentrations of religious lunatics. You know, the people who believe that the bible, and not the Constitution, is the law of the land. (And you're correct; I refuse to capitalize "bible").

Because these same people would rather have babies born unwanted, and in poverty, so that they can complain about black welfare mothers sucking up their tax dollars.

Because these same people, who want government out of their lives, make an exception for what others do in the privacy of the bedroom and the doctor's office.

Because rather than address the state's miserable standings in public health, child education, and people living in poverty, these same people only care about matters that are none of their friggin business.

Mississippi is still burning, ya know ! Love those confederate decals in the windows of the pickup trucks.

This doesn't make any sense. If a patient at the clinic needs to go to a hospital, what exactly does "not having admitting priviledges" even mean? You think UMMC is going to just let them bleed out on their doorstep, because the clinic doctor "doesn't have admitting priviledges?" Not unless they want to get sued up the wazoo.

At least try to be honest and admit that the whole "admitting priviledges" thing is just a smokescreen to close the clinic. It doesn't improve anyone's care.

So just because a place has a high teen pregnancy rate means it should have more abortion clinics? C'mon, tackle the source of the problem. Don't resort to forgiving teen pregnancy by terminating pregnancies.

How do you propose MSians "tackle the problem" of teen pregnancy?

In Louisiana, abortion is just about as unpopular as it is in Mississippi.

Have you hugged an abortionist lately?
