He’s not giving up.

Ever.

Anti-choice Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) just filed an anti-choice amendment to a bill related to agriculture, transportation, housing, and other programs. The DeMint amendment could bar discussion of abortion over the Internet and through videoconferencing, even if a woman’s health is at risk and if this kind of communication with her doctor is her best option to receive care.

Under this amendment, women would need a separate, segregated Internet just for talking about abortion care with their doctors.

  1. This bill isn’t even an abortion issue. It is a free speech issue.

    Ridiculous. What the heck is he thinking?

  2. And these Republican douche bags scream and holler that Obama is trying to strip us of our Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

    Is there a functioning brain cell left anywhere in the Republican party?

    Never mind, that is a rhetorical question.

  3. Mr. DeMint is a legend in his own mind and to the legions of his minions. Even sadder is the thought that receiving his endorsement is considered as a big prize.

  4. Is anyone concerned about the patient’s health? Is telemed in their best interest as a patient?

    • Hey Spark – welcome here and thanks for the link at your place. Sounds like you are of the ‘millenium’ generation? Young voices are so welcome in these disussions! Hope you come back.

      As for this amendment of DeMint’s – it’s the wrong place to address this legislatively – this is an agriculature and transportation bill.
      I went to the link – those complication numbers in a universe of 1.5 million women doesn’t suggest a problem. Those are low numbers for such a large group. And in any case – surprise, surprise! – I am very pro-choice.

      I think too, that telemed is the future – not too worried about it.

      Anyway, welcome.

  5. This is an affront to free speech, and I hate to think of where it could lead.
