Bill May Close Inadequate Abortion Clinics

May 1st, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

A bill that would require strict guidelines for a serious medical procedure passed a Senate Committee yesterday but the common sense move by the committee has left many with bunched panties.

The bill would require abortions to be performed at “surgical centers with strict building guidelines.” Unfortunately for Planned Parenthood their clinics in Kansas City and Missouri don’t and can’t meet the guidelines.

In response to the bill Michelle Trupiano, a Planned Parenthood lobbyist, said: “Abortion is one of the safest procedures you can find it is 100% safe,” Yeah, sure.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby in Missouri complain that if this bill becomes law women will consider desperate measures or “be forced to carry a child to term,” but the bill doesn’t ban abortions. The bill only forces abortion doctors to face guidelines other doctors are already facing. Planned Parenthood of Missouri is just upset they aren’t going to be getting their cut of the pie anymore.
