Re: American Women going to Mexico where the laws are friendly, to Women...

HIPAA cannot protect you if there is a warrant or prosecutor's request for your health records. (Alas.) My question was more along the lines of if they're not required to tell the government, how would the government know the woman was pregnant? If they're just going to suspect any woman who goes t...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Why does everyone ignore this part of the opinion “ For example, we could consider whether any of the rights announced in this Court’s substantive due process cases are “privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” protected by the Fourteenth Amendment.”.

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Same can be said for “Plessy v Ferguson” Roe was a fabrication. “Made up out of Whole Cloth”. If the court had simply declared the law unconstitutional on equal protection grounds it might have stuck. But once they fabricated the right to privacy and legislated the trimester it had a target. It’s w...

Follow up on my question. Since HIPAA is federal law, wouldn't they have control over what the doctor can report?

Re: American Women going to Mexico where the laws are friendly, to Women...

Fortunately, right now , women have the Constitutional right to travel to another state so they cannot be stopped from traveling for an abortion. Of course, that doesn't stop the state from charging her for having an abortion. So, will doctors be required to report pregnancies to the government? (Wo...

Re: January 6 hearings...

I'm curious about something here, maybe someone can set me straight. It is my understanding that a pardon is for a specific crime that happened in the past or one currently in proceedings. If this is the case, a blanket pardon would be invalid since it's not for a specific crime. I know the Vietnam ...

I have no problem with the government funding schools that teach religion, so long as they cannot discriminate. If the government is sending funding directly, or indirectly (eg: vouchers) to a school, I think it fair that that school not be allowed to discriminate. That means accepting all students,...

Re: Gov. John Bel Edwards signs abortion bill -- with no exceptions for rape, incest -- into law

It has always been about control. If you look at the history of abortion, you find that it's never really been about life.

If it was about life, they'd support the mother, they'd support the newborn, they'd support children but they do not.

It’s appears the law allows the parent to choose where to educate their kids. Once you pay your taxes to the government, it’s no longer your money. It’s the governments. That never seems to work when it's funding Planned Parenthood. We fund Catholic schools here. The trade-off, of course, is that t...
