Thanks for providing evidence that the law in Lousiana is unfair, unneccessary.
From your link:
In reality, a decision to grant admitting privileges is largely a business decision for hospitals. Doctors are not generally granted privileges unless they routinely admit significant numbers of patients for treatment. For instance, doctors who regularly deliver babies in hospitals are good candidates for admitting privileges.
Abortion providers, on the other hand, are not. Abortion has such a low complication rate — nationally, it is less than a quarter of 1% — that providers do not regularly admit patients to hospitals. What's more, without the financial incentive of regular hospital "admits," there is even less reason for a hospital to grant privileges to doctors whose practice brings with it controversy and security risks.
Abortion is a hot-button issue in Louisiana, and doctors providing abortions in the state face extreme pressure.
One doctor "was outed as an abortion provider and protesters showed up at [his] children's school," says Julie Rikelman, who represents the Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, a clinic that provides abortion services.
And thanks for showing what scum the antiabortionists are.
You really NEED TO READ WHAT IT IS YOU LINK TO.
