Uggghhh!! Painful!!

What crime?!?
Why is this such an American thing?!? Everything, even that that the majority of educated civilised society can freely converse about and have difference of opinion about and leave it at that, has to be legislated? You people seem incapable of discussing things and forming your own opinion unless there is some legislation to back up your opinion. Can you not think for yourself and leave it at that? If you think abortion is a crime or a sin your an idiot. And No law will make me think different. If you want to rely on some state statute to back Ur arguement, ur still wrong, if you want to rely on a 1200 Ur old book ( not 2000 Ur old teaching.. No such thing) written by Catholic Church, Ur still wrong.. But please don't quote some rubbish and think it's fact! It's not. I'm tired of the American self righteousness when it suits the individual. Grow up, get a job, go to work, realise what's important ( not you).

What are you going on about?
Reads like you are just ranting about a whole lot of nothing.

How u figure? Just stating the fact that this only becomes an issue once legislation gets involved. Legislation tends to rise the blood of those who without it could care less, that's the point, this does nothing to change the conversation of abortion pro or against.. It's just a story to stir the pot, that's all I'm sayin

It isn't meant to change the conversation, it is the result of people who wanted to record with out people's consent and then edit those videos and release them to the public.
It was an issue before the legislation and this legislation won't change that.

Ugh, Breitbart. Right wingers source for all things fantasy and spin.

You know, healthcare facilities are already protected by confidentiality laws and just because someone is a journalist doesn't mean they're exempt from these laws. But lets be honest, this is all about the CMP and their propaganda videos, to which you were a big supporter of so it's no wonder you're back with this spin. Let's all be very clear, the CMP are not journalists and no real journalists are worried about secretly recording doctors and everything else in a medical facility.

How come you didn't post the actual bill for everyone read? Is Breitbart all we need to make an informed decision about this? I guess so?

leginfo.legislature.ca.gov...


Evidently , you know little of HIPPA. The laws are to protect patient's rights. The equivalence of this is that they pass a law that you cant provide information on cancer treatment facilities. Or plastic surgery facilities. YOU CAN publish what medical facilities perform what specialties.


Careful , your bias is showing.

When people complain about government surveillance the response is often, "If you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide".

But when people conduct surveillance on government agencies, it is against the law?

Who watches the watchers when it is made illegal to do so?


No kidding,

Hey... that is a good idea... let's make it illegal to record and distribute video of Government Agencies and the Police!


There's too much great kabuki and other whale oil on
CSpan for them to ever let it go away, buds.
"The federal government is the entertainment arm of the
military-industrial complex." Zappa, 1984... probably to Tipper.
I still think he paid for that under the table. Maybe they
will someday as well.

In the Peoples Republic of California. They don't have a RIGHT to the second. So why should they have a RIGHT to the first ?

Cali always does Mao proud.

ya know, I am kind of getting tired of people referring to CMP as investigative journalists.
investigative journalists don't use fake ids. they don't set up fake companies and send out fake literature about their fake company (otherwise known as false advertising.) and most don't go around videotaping people without their knowledge.
CMP was coached throughout this stunt I believe from some of the same people who pulled just about the same stunt over a decade or so ago. you would have thought congress would have recognized cmp for what it was, but nope, not in an election year.




The House Energy and Commerce Committee panel investigating Planned Parenthood is on track to spend at least $790,000, according to a recent report from Rewire. In addition to the previous congressional investigations into Planned Parenthood, a dozen states have also found room in their budgets for taxpayer-funded inquiries of their own. Texas alone has spent at least $47,000 on what the Austin Chronicle has labeled a “witch hunt.”

www.thedailybeast.com...


the republican party used to be about fiscal conservatism, too bad that's long gone!
cmp's antics have been costly. not only for the taxpayer, but also for the clinics and heathcare providers who they just had to name. they had to contend with death and bomb threats, assaults on their clinics, threats to their homes and families. which they then had to pay out for additional security.
no illegal activity has been found.
the only indictments that have been handed down was against cmp.
which then later the charges were dropped.

I don't know if what they are doing is the best way to go, but at least it puts a few extra teeth in the law.
this wasn't investigated journalism. it was a politcal hit job, of which we that taxpayers are paying for!
