Not all, only when it happens "without a doctor present". It's the first line of the article for god's sake.. I'm too pissed to read the rest after your blatant lie.

The doctor already has to record it and make it available to the police.

So where's the lie?

The doctor who wasn't there has to record it? I probably agree with you on it being a bad proposal, but you lost me by lying right off the bat like that. I'll have to come back to the article later with some fresh eyes.

Looks to me like they are looking for a way to fill up women's prisons.

Are they private in Virginia yet?

And one of the Senators from my state, Richard Burr, was among the "Nay" votes. He has been a conservative puppet ever since he got into office. From his voting record I cannot find a single vote where he didn't just vote along party lines. That is cowardly and empty-headed. I want people in office who can THINK!

Unfortunately I doubt that enough people in this state will have the knowledge to vote this drone out. They're too easily swayed by the "Jesus and Rifles" pandering that counts for politics around here.

Xenu - pardon a harsh question -
what are YOU going to do in NC to "fix" this ? may I suggest your letter to every mayor newspaper in NC

Letters to the editor can make a difference. At the very least it can get a dissenting opinion out there that these people rarely encounter, if ever.

I'm probably going to run for office in a year or two, if I'm still living here. I'm part of the 99% Declaration, which I'm sure will turn into "run candidates in every state that want to overturn Citizen's United" once the declaration itself is not acted on.

We need to make them pay for this!!!

Here's how the senate voted: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/112-2012/s87

Only the GOP Women voted for it. The GOP men voted in solidarity against the bill protecting women. No. No war on women. Who said that? Let's just not protect them from getting the crap beaten out of them.

Here's why we need this law: http://www.ncdsv.org/images/WH_Factsheet_TheVAWA_2012.pdf

And guess where it goes next---->clue------>the republiclaned controlled House. The prognosis isn't good with the Do-Nothing Congress.

This is just one of the many HUGE differences between Dems and Cons. I love women and their rights, but a little more help (any would be nice) with the misguided their-both-the-same crowd would be appreciated.

Capiche?
