Kind of like the liberals and Benghazi?

Loud noises. Your facts are irrelevant, because Christ.

Surely the church didnt know that their attorneys would use that defense, or they would have settled the case before it went to court. A fetus IS a person.

Right?

What are they trying to sweep under the rug?

While we're on the subject, why weren't the republicans outraged when 60+ US citizens died in attacks on US embassies during the BushCo reign of terror?

I dgaf about assault weapons. Never did, never will.

Makes me smile to see grown men rush down to the local gun shop and drop 3x retail on guns & ammo, though.

Capitalism always make me smile.

Did they specifically ask for help? Did the secretary of state disappear and have no clue about anything? Did the government address (and lie) to the nation with some low rent liar about the issue, who was told to say it was all about a youtube video? Thought so.

You republicans love a witch hunt, don't you?

Assuming that your accusations are true, what's the net effect of this latest republican lynching? What has your team accomplished by making a mountain out of this molehill?

I realize libtards find it to be no big deal when the government blatantly lies to the people, and that the death of a government official is no big deal, so trying to explain to you why this is a big deal is hardly a fruitful endeavor. Enjoy your afternoon tea with the posterchildren of "it doesn't matter"...Clinton and Holder.

So you don't really know what's supposed to happen, or you're just happy that there's a witch hunt, or. . .?

What's the objective? What do you expect the outcome to be?

What should have happened is that Obama should have fired her for being incompetent, and apologized to the nation for her being incompetent...simple as that. Just like Hooters apologized for that hostess that called a couple "chinx"....people in Washington (republican or democrat) should not be able to get away with everything without consequence. She screwed up (or someone did) and they should be punished. Since they are a government official, they should be punished publicly.

This should have been handled the day after, not months after. There was absolutely no need to have this circus.

Because nothing was done about it. No one lost their job. No one was put on trial. Nothing. This is unacceptable.

It's a tangled web. IF the hospital believes it's not responsible for the deaths of the fetuses, then it needs to defend itself under the existing state laws. And operating with the context of those laws, it sounds like they're correct in pointing out that the law they're being sued under specifically states that the fetuses dont qualify as people.

They can probably even do so in good conscience because they likely objected strongly to the law and lobbied against it when it was first proposed. But now they can sit back and say "ok guys, we told you this was an unacceptable standard, but it's the one you chose, so now its the one you're stuck judging us by".

IF the hospital believes it is responsible for the deaths of the fetuses, then it needs to deal with the fact that it caused 3 deaths and not just 1 because in THAT case, they're governed by their moral standards more so than legal ones.

LOL at the idea that there's a difference.
