    Now she has one more reason to get the abortion: spite for the state of Texas.

    Well if I had a little parasitic sea monkey that got there despite my measures to prevent that I’d be questioning its motives too. ;)

    Sorry lefty, I deleted my comment there. 8th amendment, I just realized that only applies to people who actually did illegal things unlike abortions.

    Trudeau is letting his fancy run wild. When has a doctor ever dealt with “hopes and dreams”? Doctors are tethered to the practical world of medical choices and consequences.

    This is a serious subject, but it is a comic strip. Therefore, the doc is not entirely tethered as in real life. Although, some levity is often required even in real life situations, especially in the medical world.

    Let’s hope we can keep abortion legal, despite the crazies on the other side. We don’t ever want to see women dying again because of the needs of some to control others. If only they could be satisfied with controlling themselves. By all means, if you don’t want to have an abortion, don’t have one!

    Unfortunately, this “exaggerated for comic effect” version is not that far from the truth: http://www.texasobserver.org/cover-story/the-right-not-to-know

    @palin drome

    Just because he has an MD doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate the irony of the situation.

    The doctor’s obviously putting his own ironic spin on the situation. He’s not the girl’s enemy.

    Yo, not to be nasty, but this isn’t the doctor, its a politician. said so a couple of days back. He also said doctors don’t approve of this tactic (or maybe that was me)

    Does the cynical doctor think the sonogram shows a fetus ripe for aborting?

    If so, he’s quite different from the sympathetic doctor in the alarming article referenced by RanaRavens.

    @Sosaidh and King Shark

    I agree the doctor was being ironical when he read the Texas statement to her in the last panel two days ago: “your doctor cannot be trusted”

    Need I say new meaning to the phrase: “flush Rush”?

    To Quote from the article referenced by RanaRavens:
    “But what good is the view of someone who has never had to make your terrible choice? What good is a law that adds only pain and difficulty to perhaps the most painful and difficult decision a woman can make? Shouldn’t women have a right to protect themselves from strangers’ opinions on their most personal matters? Shouldn’t we have the right not to know?”

    Also from theTexas Observer (7th Feb I think):
    Judge Sparks knows what it was about. In yesterday’s ruling he states, “There can be little doubt that (the law) is an attempt by the Texas Legislature to discourage women from exercising their constitutional rights by making it more difficult for caring and competent physicians to perform abortions.”

    Gov. Rick Perry seems to be a point of much contention and criticism in this series, and I have to wonder if he would be catching so much flak if he had never run for president, and made a fool of himself on national television. Has he destroyed all of his political ambitions? Has he no redeeming qualities?
