The bill -- which then passed the House 63 to 36 -- would require any woman seeking an abortion in the state to receive an ultrasound first. As an external ultrasound is not able to produce a necessary picture early in pregnancy, a trans-vaginal ultrasound would be needed to produce an image of the fetus or embryo.
Here's the attitude that makes me mad:
He noted he had a conversation with one GOP lawmaker regarding his amendment where the lawmaker had told him that women had already made the decision to be "vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant."
What business is it of these religious busybodies? There's a point where it is the state's business and there's a point where it is not. There's a point where we interfere in severe human rights situations around the world and there's situations where we wish them the best.
You seem to be implying that a vaginal ultrasound is a more unpleasant procedure than the 'standard' sonogram. In fact, it is not. The standard (transabdominal) sono requires an uncomfortably full bladder in order to be done correctly. Not so with the vaginal sono. Most (not all) women prefer the vaginal sono simply because of that.
