    Fair enough.

    The constitution isn't our only dictum for how to approach issues and treat others. We have various things such as personal values, respect of personal space, right to privacy, the ability to self-educate and a measure of human decency, ethics . . . and so on so forth.
    Eh, true but none of that is legally backed and there is no reason to believe any of that will be treated with respect. Viewing recent actions of the government should tell you that privacy rights they think nothing of. Ethics and human decency are opinion based concepts however.

    So: what I'm saying is that such measures and efforts merely treat us as if we're stupid and uneducated about all these many things - and the majority of us are not.
    I don't know if I would say that really, but then, I wouldn't say the effort does much of anything either.

    they are forcing women to have their vagina violated, so that Conservatives can say "**** you" to Liberals.

    this is disgusting...and should be rejected in ALL ways.
    Ummm, if a woman is seeking an abortion, she's going to "have her vagina," not to mention her cervix, "violated"...and much more "violently" than from a sonogram.

    LOL - even if we're not pregnant at all we're always told to do this anyway as if we all crave to be probed via pap smears and swabs.

    A new Texas law requires that women seeking an abortion to see a sonogram of the fetus, as well are asked to hear the heartbeat of the fetus.

    Words cannot describe how disappointed I am.
    This law isn't going to change much. The doctor can always do the sonogram and tell the woman "This is what a parasite looks like - Would you like to be dewormed now?".

    Yes, let's see, they excluded any Catholics that were not using contraceptives, and Catholics in any other catagory that wouldn't use contraceptives, then basically said of the Catholic women that use contraceptives, 98% of them use contraceptives....What a joke.

    It is hard to tell if they don't know what they are doing when they have the act that creates the pregnancy in the first place....
