In response to Reubenhop's comment:
[quote] Sorry I actually believe in personal freedom and respect people to direct their lives withour some moralizing religious fanatics to intefere through governmental action.

Remember, according to abortion zealots like airborne and reubenhop, it is 'personal freedom', no one else's business..entirely between the woman and her doctor...no regulation allowed. No government intrusion. No ultrasound requirement, no waiting period, no medical requirements, no parental notification...
Pennsylvania follows this liberal philosophy.
And this is what happens...
"A doctor whose abortion clinic was described as a filthy, foul-smelling "house of horrors" that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them. [Not "overlooked", just following the liberal mantra, "no one else's business"]
Dr. Kermit Gosnell was also charged with murder in the death of a woman who suffered an overdose of painkillers while awaiting an abortion.
In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Gosnell's clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city's impoverished West Philadelphia section.
Prosecutors called the case a "complete regulatory collapse." [with no regulations allowed, how is it a regulatory collapse? Liberals say requirements to treat abortion facilities as medical centers "impinge on the woman's right to choose"]
"Pennsylvania is not a Third World country," the district attorney's office declared in the report.
[Yes it is]
Gosnell, 69, was arrested and charged with eight counts of murder in all. Nine of Gosnell's employees â including his wife, a cosmetologist who authorities say performed abortions â also were charged.
Prosecutors said Gosnell made millions of dollars over three decades performing thousands of dangerous abortions, many of them illegal late-term procedures. His clinic had no trained nurses or medical staff other than Gosnell, a family physician not certified in obstetrics or gynecology, prosecutors said
[why were the late term abortions 'illegal'...the choice is between the doctor and patient, correct?]
At least two women died from the procedures, while scores more suffered perforated bowels, cervixes and uteruses, authorities said.
The prosecution of this doctor must certainly impinge on the "women's right to choose"....
Thank goodness Pennsylvania had no waiting period, ultrasound requirement, and especially no licensing requirements to treat abortions as a serious medical operation...
