Isnt it frightening to hear the words “200 million in cuts to education” or hundreds of millions in cuts to services such as police departments and libraries? It is important to note that these “cuts” are cuts in projected spending, not real belt tightening cuts to existing departmental budgets.

The majority of the bills focused on regulating abortion clinics and to see that those clinics meet the same reporting and oversight requirements as other medical facilities.
In November 2010, Dr. Leroy Carhart opened an abortion clinic that specializes in late term abortions in Gaithersburg Maryland.
