    "The ultrasound legislation would constitute an unprecedented government mandate to insert vaginal ultrasonic probes into women as part of a state-ordered effort to dissuade them from terminating pregnancies, legislative opponents noted.

    "We're talking about inside a woman's body," Del. Charnielle Herring, a Democrat, said in an emotional floor speech. "This is the first time, if we pass this bill, that we will be dictating a medical procedure to a physician.""

    Wow. Stay out of my vagina Virginia.
    Perhaps they can have the procedure done by TSA Agents at the nation's airports. It seems like the next logical step.

    On the other hand they might teach these hillbillies as to what causes pregnancies in the first place.

    Over the top hyperbole and rather pathetic hackery eh? The emotional exploitation is in reactions like this.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ah so you think governments role should be to force unessecary medical procedures on woman...

    That's pretty interesting for a "Small Government Conservative" to say.

    Yep, thought so. Nothing more than an emotional response, which is what this law is trying to do. It's trying to force women, who like I said are most likely emotionally unstable to have an emotional response so that the outcome is what they want.

    The government should not be doing this.

    Why not? The Government is protecting it's citizens, the unborn that have no voice, no agent in their defense.

    As long as people like you are fine with the Government forcing men to pay 18+ years of child support with no way out for a child THEY didn't want, your outrage is just so much hypocrisy.

    You'e also A-OK with the Government forcing people to PURCHASE health Insurance, but a 5 minute procedure? Your false outrage is quite emotionally based.

    I am a pro-lifer but not a strict pro-lifer as I concede conditions for which abortion should be legal. However, the way our abortion laws are constructed this is indeed an intrusion into a woman's privacy and rights under the law. I see this getting struck down in court.

    Uh-Huh. This isn't the first state to pass similar laws. It will go to SCOTUS.
