Texas is the third state in the union to make a law requiring doctors to warn women about a scientifically inaccurate link between having an abortion and breast cancer, as part of a long list of “counseling requirements:”

Despite conclusive evidence from leading scientists and the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health that there is no link between abortion and breast cancer, the Texas state legislature passed a bill yesterday requiring doctors tell women seeking abortions that there is a possible link between abortion and breast cancer.

The law also will require women to wait 24 hours before getting an abortion. Prior to this 24-hour waiting period, doctors must provide women with information about medical risks, adoption alternatives, requirements about the liability of the father to pay child support and color pictures of the developmental stages of the fetus.

Hopefully it’s not too late for some additional riders:

  • Doctors will be required to inform women seeking an abortion that they will be plagued by nightmares of their aborted baby clawing it’s way out of a dumpster screaming “Why? WHY?!”
  • Clergy must be present during counseling to inform the woman that proceeding with an abortion will cause her to be sent to the deepest pit of hell upon her death.
  • Women seeking an abortion must complete several difficult physical stunts, including eating live bugs, jumping from the top of a moving tractor trailer moving at over 50 miles per hour, and escaping from a simulated vehicle submersion in less than 60 seconds.
  • A 50 question test of bible trivia must be answered with a score of no less than 80% correct.

I don’t see what the big deal is about. I mean, you can still have an abortion if you want to. It’s not like the states are trying to go around the Supreme Court decision or anything.
