More than 100 rally at only Miss abortion clinic
| August 18, 2013

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) More than 100 people rallied for Mississippi's only abortion clinic after a trial date was set in its fight against a state law.

The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/14Yl4Kp ) reports that people from across Mississippi and as far as Houston, Texas, and Louisville, Ky., gathered Saturday outside Jackson Women's Health Organization.

Sunsara Taylor of StopPatriarchy.org and the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride said Mississippi is among five states with one abortion provider.

Mississippi's law requires every doctor at an abortion clinic to have privileges to admit patients to a local hospital.

1. That's all?

 


The doctor who lost her license in Kansas said that if they gave it back she would not return without an army, that until people stood up in sufficient numbers that none of this was going to change.

This is what she was talking about.

2. I sort think the doctors SHOULD have admitting privileges at hospitals.

If I was going to have a procedure, I'd want to make sure that my facility had the best possible access to emergency care.

4. Nowadays you are assigned an in-house doc

during your stay if you are admitted thru the ER, probably never even seeing your regular doctor. It's a specialty, but the name escapes me right now.

3. Please educate me on this. I have been wondering for a long time...

 

Why can't women go to any regular gynecologist doctors for all reproductive health care? In other words, why do abortions have to be specialized into clinics only?

My thought is...if all women's reproductive health care could be absorbed into the health care system thru-out gynecologists practices, then the rw-woman-hating-terrorists would have a harder time of doing their terrorist targeting of women. There is no way they could get away with targeting every gynecologist doctor.

What law caused this area of women's reproductive health to only be performed in isolated specialized clinics? I really want to know!

5. Hospitals probably won't do abortions for fear of retribution from the wackos

which is why only private clinics do them. I don't know for sure.

11. The Wackos with guns KILL Doctors

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-abortion_violence


December 30, 1994: Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi was arrested and confessed to the killings. He died in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.

January 29, 1998: Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.

October 23, 1998: Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death with a high-powered rifle at his home in Amherst, New York.,His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers in Canada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Slepian's murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.

May 31, 2009: Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed by Scott Roeder as Tiller served as an usher at a church in Wichita, Kansas.

A whole bevy of Fundy nut jobs killing to get into heaven or fulfilling some other sick fantasy.

12. I can't remember the exact details

But one of my teachers will killed in a shooting in the 1980s by one of these wackos. She was a kind person and hearing about her death was difficult.

7. Partly due to feminists wanting to take back women's health care from the medical profession whom

they saw as not particularly feminist oriented. This was back in the 70s. Little did they know that they were setting up sitting targets, but at the time the thinking was "women caring for women." I worked at one such clinic in New Haven, now gone. I was there in the 80s and I saw what was happening. Those were the days of the bombings of clinics and the invasion of clinics. The crazies tried this once when I was there. They didn't get very far. We had a group of friends form a human chain in front of the clinic and escorts for the patients (which we had regularly). Plus, we had some board members with ties to the city admin. so we got police protection.

As for gyn's offices, I think at some point they did do simple first trimester suction abortion but as time went on the procedure got more professional and more often offering twilight anesthesia. So it got a little more complicated. Also, there really is no way a gyn doc could successfully hide the fact that she did abortions in her office and thus she would be even more threatened. So the docs would come to clinics to do them.

10. Don't expect Catholic Hospitals to provide them.

Or any other Christian-affiliated Hospital.

Who's left? Public Hospitals? University Hospitals? Jewish Hospitals?

13. I strongly support a woman's right to choose.

 

However, forcing non-public (and some public) hospitals, doctors and other medical professionals to perform abortions is a legal minefield and likely unconstitutional. Additionally, it is in many ways antithetical to the concept of choice, except under extreme circumstances such as to physically save the life of the mother.

6. Only a "more than a 100"?

 

Unless that is partisan newspeak for thousands, women need to leave Mississippi en masse.
