So Much for Safety: ACLU, Planned Parenthood Demand Non-Doctors Be Allowed to Perform Abortions

“Safe, Legal, and Rare,” recite the liberal drones. They don’t want it to be rare, or they wouldn’t glamorize it and demand the government subsidize it. Turns out they don’t care much about it being safe either:

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state of Maine Wednesday over a law requiring that only doctors perform abortion procedures, the two organizations said.

According to the Portland Press Herald, the law, which was enacted in 1979, says that only medical doctors may perform abortions, prohibiting other medical staff such as nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives from performing the procedure. The report noted that 41 other states have similar laws.

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU filed a federal lawsuit challenging the law as “unconstitutional.”

Funny, my copy of the Constitution doesn’t say anything about the fundamental right to kill babies without having sufficient medical qualifications.

Stand by for any number of Kermit Gosnell types, who won’t even need to get through medical school to turn a gruesome profit.

Next time a moonbat barks that abortion must be promoted or women will hurt themselves with coat hangers, remember this story. This isn’t about health, or someone would care about the aborted babies’ health. It is about moral degeneracy as a political creed.

Abortion isn’t safe for babies, either.

On a tip from Mr. Freemarket.

    Leftism is, and always has been, a sort of bland but determined death cult.

  2. Frank says:

    Fostering entrepreneurship by permitting anyone who wants to get into the business perform abortions seems like a great idea…

  3. oldguy says:

    Do women really need a second person to hold the coat hanger?

  4. TED says:

    There’s some JUSTICE in killing the mothers with the babies…suck on that FEMINAZIS!!!!! How enticing is that ABORTION NOW??!!!

    Follow the money and you’ll find the pragmatic power brokers…

    No money in do it yourself abortions…

    This is interesting, as much has horrifying. Progressives clutch their pearls and crank up the “white supremacy” memes when any conservative starts to talk about taking the Ninth and Tenth Amendments seriously, like their words really mean something. They are ardent supporters of the current nationalist interpretation of the Constitution (a national government with pliant dependant states) when it suits them, such as when Roe v Wade was decided, but when that no longer works out for them, they are happy to become ardent advocates of the Tenth Amendment, where each state is sovereign in a federalized republic).

    I could ask the simple question: who owns your body? When secular progressives want to enjoy that evil weed, they join libertarians in saying that not a single one of the several enumerated powers that the Constitution grants to the federal government includes a power over what a person may ingest or how they might otherwise choose to treat their body with. But in the interest of “safety” we have allowed the federal government to seize that power without amending the Bill of Rights to allow it.

    Bad behavior on the part of some citizens does not justify bad behavior on the part of government. Any rational cost-benefit analysis of the war on the abuse of drugs shows its tremendous net negative cost. That is why we see few if any government funded studies on the subject.

    In the case of abortion, it always results in the loss of the life of a potential human. In a free market, capitalist society like we have, on balance humans are very valuable. They contribute a net positive to human society, culture and the economy. if this were not true, our economy would not have been growing since the country’s founding. Only in a socialist economy like Cuba and North Korea does each additional human cause a net loss to society and the economy. I can only speculate that Progressives are such ardent supporters of socialism that they want to reduce the birth rate to as near zero as possible so as to not burden the Perfect Socialist Utopia they are ardently working to impose on the rest of us.

    If requiring an MD to perform an abortion is ruled unconstitutional, then that finding would have some pretty broad ramifications for medical licensing laws in general. Perhaps other professional licensing laws as well.

  9. Scattergood Baines says:

    They already have them. Abortion doctors are from the affirmative action side of the spectrum, black and/or low iq.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Hey, I thought they didn’t want this… ah, abortion is all that’s important– lives of women are expendable for the cause.

  11. BPatMann says:

    How can abortions be safe when 50% of everyone who goes in for one comes out dead?

  12. Mr. Freemarket says:

    So long as you don’t use a gun….

    Keeps prices low!

    Is that you. Barack?

    Too much time on your hands?

  15. Mr. Freemarket says:

    So long as it is sterile….kinda…

  16. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Sometimes babies survive
    Sometimes mothers don’t

    It is almost a risky procedure

  17. daPenguin says:

    reading between the lines, they cannot get enough actual doctors to want to be involved in murder anymore. I remember a few years ago, California required all Med students to perform at least one abortion before they could complete their program. It was due to the fact that way too many drs, were starting to refuse to do them.

  18. C. S. P. Schofield says:

    First of all, please understand that I am in favor of legal abortion. I have my reasons. They aren’t likely to persuade you if you feel other wise.

    That said, I fully expect to see abortion outlawed in almost every State during my lifetime (Nevada always being a likely exception). Why? Because the vast majority of people on the ‘Pro-Choice’ side are pillocks who simply cannot imagine that being in the moral right (which they feel they are) isn’t enough, in a representative Republic. They are going to blunder often enough and egregiously enough that they will lose the fight, not because they are wrong (and they may be) but because they are impolitic, arrogant, careless, and stupid.

  19. Frank says:

    And no pesky inspections, certifications or records keeping!

  20. Nan says:

    Human, not potential human.

  21. You can judge a man by the company he keeps.

    Liberals are the friends of abortionists, socialists, statists, racists, sodomites, lesbians, atheists, anti-Christians, nature-worshippers, climate jihadists, Islamic terrorists, gun-grabbers, tax extortionists, historical revisionists, nuke-wielding dictators and those unfortunate souls still confused about their gender.

    Every so often we need to watch this video from 1993 and read those CHILLING lyrics:

    This is just a hypothetical story
    Of someone, let’s just say it’s me
    I’d gain acceptance for my murderous ways
    By stalking a defenseless prey
    If I were a killer
    I’d smile just like the boy next door
    If I were a killer
    I’d say I do it for the poor
    If I were a killer
    You’d bring me victims more and more
    If I were a killer

    Supreme Court would agree to hear my case
    And find me innocent of crime
    Holding public rallies to incite sympathy
    Creative actuality
    If I were a killer
    I’d smile just like the boy next door
    If I were a killer
    I’d say I do it for the poor
    If I were a killer
    You’d bring me victims more and more
    If I were a killer

    If I were a killer
    I’d smile just like the boy next door
    If I were a killer
    I’d say I do it for the poor
    If I were a killer
    You’d bring me victims more and more
    If I were a killer
    I’d hide behind a doctor’s door
    If I were a killer
    I’d scrape you off my office floor
    If I were a killer
