Va. GOP Demands Invasive Vaginal Ultrasound Procedure Before Abortion - Republicans in Virginia’s House of Delegates really have their hearts set on new legislation that will force all women seeking abortions to first undergo penetration by a transvaginal ultrasound transducer. They’re so enthralled with this harlot-shaming tool that today they voted down an amendment that would have allowed doctors to determine whether this penetration was necessary. Clearly, whether it’s medically necessary or not has nothing to do with this law. The GOP wants to get all up in women’s uteruses — literally. The penetration part is vital to their agenda.
