And you see that as a bad thing?

as his first visit required that he received information and a 24 hour waiting period

When I got my wisdom teeth out, I went to the doctor, discussed the procedure with him, heard how he would work, then scheduled an appointment to come back and do it.

I think abortions deserve at least the same treatment.

And what does any of this have to do with Sarah Palin?

Did you have to listen to a state legislature provided script about the "rights" of the pulled teeth? Did you have to view pictures of pulled teeth? Did you have to listen to a speech about the "alternatives" to pulling the teeth? Did you have to wait 24 hours once you had decided to get your teeth pulled? Did you have to prove to complete strangers that your life would be endangered if the teeth were not pulled?

Nothing. Ask the FYM men who brought it up what it has to do with David Letterman and Sarah Palin.

Yep, and you have the right to be stupid and waste time on "causes" like firing a man over a joke...

But the point is, most do not see ending an innocent life as the same as a tooth pull, altho some may regard it as such -sadly.

I'm not the one who made the comparison.

Are there protesters blocking the entrance with photos? Will people threaten you as you walk into the clinic? Are there bombs placed at the clinic, endangering the lives of the health care professionals who work there?

Is there a "waiting period"? Do you have to prove that you have been raped or will die if you complete the pregnancy? Do you have to ask permission from complete strangers?
Nope.

Neither did he. Someone else said getting an abortion should be like getting a tooth pulled

Yes, someone who's on your side made that comparison.

That's not the point.

I think this thread is getting out of hand, this is supposed to be about Sarah Palin. Someone should probably close this or start another thread

Okay, okay, since more than one person's asked I'll close it. Though I don't particularly see why, when it's not provoking heated fights or angry report posts.

I didn't and won't split the abortion-related stuff off from the long-dead original topic because it doesn't warrant it; it's become like some can that we keep listlessly kicking around instead of discussing something more constructive. financeguy probably had the right general idea by creating a more limited-scope thread focusing on some particular aspect of the abortion issue, instead of basically just going "Abortion is bad. Discuss." We simply don't have the traffic levels in this forum right now to get anything decent out of a thread that broad.
