Group protests against abortion bill

Posted: Tuesday, August 27, 2013 11:31 pm | Updated: 12:16 am, Wed Aug 28, 2013.

About 25 protesters, mostly clad in white, chanted and waved signs outside Assemblyman V. Manuel Pérez’s El Centro office Tuesday in protest of an abortion access bill he voted for that would expand the types of medical providers that could perform abortions.

Assembly Bill 154 by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would allow nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and physician assistants to provide first-trimester abortions. The bill passed the Senate and will return to the Assembly before going to the governor for approval.

    I think that we should shift the focus from abortion to the cause of abortion, we will be ore convincing....

    the cause of abortion is mainly the absence of the father or his lack of responsibility.

    Abortion snuffs out human life (male and female) and hurts women. This is what Margie was referring to. There's a difference of opinion of what constitutes "health care services" especially if it's service by Planned Parenthood.

    [“Abortion carries a lot of spiritual wounds and also a lot of physical wounds”...
    She cited anger, depression, eating disorders, spasms and more as possible results of having an abortion.]

    Many women suffer in silence after their abortion. By opposing first trimester abortions and abortions in general, we hope to avoid causing pain and psychological wounds.

    I agree Devin, that is one of the main reason I live in this area, its sad that people think they can play with life in that way. Life is precious, and we should respect life.

    Margie Madueño: “I’ve lived here my whole life. It’s a wonderful community. We have good values and to bring in Planned Parenthood or anything like that is going to really hurt our community,”

    Obviously, Ms. Madueno isn't clear about the health care services Planned Parenthood provides for both men and women.
