What are Virginia Legislators Thinking Of???!!!

The Virginia legislature is considering a bill that would require transvaginal ultrasound examinations for any woman seeking an abortion. Apparently the woman would not have to look at the scan results. Click here or here for more information.

Of course, a doctor and patient may determine that this procedure is appropriate for medical reasons, such as detection of potentially health threatening abnormalities. There is no possible reason that the state would be justified in requiring this procedure to be used for all women considering abortion. This is clearly an attempt by political activists to require an invasive procedure to discourage woman from seeking abortion or harassing women who do seek abortions.
