“Among other provisions in the proposed legislation are measures allowing doctors to withhold from patients medical information that might encourage them to seek an abortion and prohibiting malpractice suits if the woman or the child suffers a health complication as a result of information being withheld. A wrongful death lawsuit could be filed if the mother dies. The bill also would require doctors to tell women that abortion causes breast cancer and would prohibit state employees from performing abortions on the job.” That’s from the Huffington Post’s story on an anti-abortion bill moving through the Kansas legislature.
The insanity continues.

Build a moat around this place and seal it off with a sound proof dome. They must have been infected with some terrible brain eating organism.

Arizona, too. I’ve released the Kraken. Just. Fed. Up.
And a fine Kraken it is (http://pandionna.wordpress.com/2012/03/09/sleeping-giant/). However, you overlooked Colorado, which is now working on a personhood bill (Personhood USA is based in Denver). Where did these nut jobs come from, Mars?

I don’t know whether to scream or cry. Both the Kansas and Idaho bills interfere with the doctor-patient relationship and the doctor’s current legal, ethical, and moral obligation to treat a patient with respect and in strict confidence. The doctor-patient relationship involves only two people, the doctor and the patient. Hence the name. Legislators can practice medicine if and when they become MDs.
