    You can’t trust someone who spend 8 years in college and medical school and then 4 years on the job training: he might tell the truth!

    Here’s some info for everyone: My local paper is also printing reruns this week, and I sent a grumpy email to the editor. She replied that United Features Syndicate is sending them the reruns, and per their contract, they cannot pull the comic from another source. She was also surprised and disappointed, and will be writing an editorial later this week. So if your paper is printing reruns, maybe it isn’t their fault.

    Poor Republicans. No credibility on reducing the size of government.

    That’s another reason why Republicans don’t like science.

    I’m happy to say my East Tennessee very Republican daily newspaper has been running this series. I’m sure there will be many nasty letters to the editor about this. FYI, the newspaper is a Scripps publication so it’s possible the decision was made at the corporate level.

    But of course it’s perfectly OK to regulate everything ELSE your doctor does into oblivion. How about letting them regulate NEITHER? Less Government = More freedom. I’m for that, thanks.

    And what happens to the kids they guilt-trip women into not aborting? Kids whom the women don’t want, can’t afford, and can’t bring up? Do they pay for them?

    cali has legalized pot for medicinal use. the feds say it is still against federal law and have started shutting down dispensaries and making arrests. the feds also define rape as any forced or COERCED penetration ….. i cant wait for the first doctor/nurse/tech to be arrested for rape.

    Perry and Texas are just trying to make sure that women can’t avoid Eve’s punishment:with the help of modern obstetrics:

    “Unto the woman, he [God] said, ‘I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.’”

    After all, a woman who exercises her Constitutional right to abortion will greatly diminish her “sorrow” and will utterly escape her husband’s rule—-and that just ain’t Bible!

    Most of the serial killers were unwanted, unplanned babies (a la Ted Bundy). Since their many victims did not choose to die, the term “pro-life” should not apply to anti-abortionists, who would not care to see unwanted babies born into an environment where there is no hope of living a decent life.

    We all suffer when the government begins making medical decisions best left between a patient and a doctor. It is humiliating and just wrong for a woman to have to go through a situation like GT is depicting.

    Imagine, back room abortions again, millions of women getting mutilated, millions of women having to go through this, it isn’t “birth control”, it is control over your own body. KEEP YOUR LAWS OFF MY BODY AND MY DAUGHTER’S BODY, MY GRANDDAUGHTER’S BODY AND THE BODIES OF ANY OF MY SISTERS.

    Scripps-Howard in the Treasure Coast area of FL isn’t running the strips in the comics, just reruns. But, they did promise the entire “thread” would be run in the Editorial section next week. Cowardly, cowardly, cowardly…

    So you think it’s better to kill those kids? Is it OK to kill anybody who might be expensive for society? A mother who gives birth, and then kills her child, she’s prosecuted for murder. That happened to a woman in France. She didn’t want to submit to doctor or medical prodecure, so she waited until she’d given birth. Then she killed the baby, and she was prosecuted for murder. This is not about a woman’s choice. It’s about the doctor’s choice. The doctors legally committing abortion these days, some of them admit they did back-alley illegal abortion before abortion was de-criminalized. Now they can commit abortion without worrying about going to prison. There is no proof that legal abortion is any safer for the mother than illegal abortions were. The legal abortions are safer for the doctor, not the mother. Women are still dying from botched abortions in the United States.

    @Arye Uygur

    In this country, we don’t impose the death penalty on someone who MIGHT commit crimes. Our constitution says no one can be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. The babies don’t “choose” to die either. They deserve justice. Preemptive murder is not justice.
