I really wonder about California sometimes.
The militant liberal left, the one that welcomes all voices so long as they agree with them, the one that is the most vicious and violent to those who disagree with them, the one who unabashedly infringe on everyone’s rights except those that narrowly fit into their ideology, has done it again.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 154 on Wednesday allowing for non-physicians to perform abortions. It would be one thing if that meant only handing out medication like the day after pill but the bill actually allows for non-physicians to perform invasive medical procedures in order to kill the unborn child.
Now, I have the knowledge and the steady hand to remove a person’s appendix but I doubt my zero years in medical school would cause a lineup of people at my door looking for appendectomies.
I don’t care what your stance on abortion is, outside of the most ardent pro-abortion mouth foamer out there, this can’t be considered a good idea. The people performing these procedures aren’t even going to be trained by doctors and while the bill says the abortions will be performed under a doctor’s “supervision” there is nothing in the legislation requiring a physician to be present or on-site during an abortion.
It is not only the ridiculous decision by Gov. Brown and the CA legislature that boggles my mind but their abject hypocrisy. They will push their agenda, regardless of how extreme yet have no problem with the complete oppression of others.
It is now LEGAL for a person who is not a physician to perform an invasive medical procedure.
It is completely ILLEGAL to sell a gun to someone else without going through a licensed dealer.
Firearm sales must be conducted through a fully licensed California firearms dealer. Failure to do so is a violation of California law. The buyer (and seller, in the event that the; buyer is denied), must meet the normal firearm purchase and delivery requirements.
Yet California does not have any of the major types of abortion restrictions—such as waiting periods, mandated parental involvement or limitations on publicly funded abortions—often found in other states.
If I’m a Californian and I want to sell my over under rifle I use for skeet shooting I can’t just go to my buddy and exchange it for cash, I need to go to someone who is licensed by the state of California and have them oversee the transaction. I have to deal with background checks, waiting periods and other infringements.
Yet if you want to undergo invasive medical procedures that will rip out and end a life/potential life (depending on your beliefs) then all you need to do is head over to the nearest abortion clinic and anyone who has taken the equivalent to watching a Grey’s Anatomy marathon can hook you up immediately.
Just a look at the numbers:
Total Number of Abortions in CA (2008): 214,190
Approx. number of murders via firearm in US (2008): 12,000
Abortions are nearly 20 times more prevalent in California than murders by firearm are in the ENTIRE United States yet California cracks down and infringes on the rights on the law abiding to keep and bear arms while streamlining the process of aborting babies by not even requiring someone with a medical degree to be involved.
Apparently the inmates have taken over the asylum in Sacramento.
