    Kentucky had its own measure in the legislature that was, fortunately, stuck in committee when the session adjourned. I hope it stays that way.

    I forgot about the link describing the proposed-measure as the Clockwork Orange for Women Bill.

    The post has commenters who are proposing the ELECTRIC CHAIR for young women and physicians for providing or having an abortion. Can someone explain the anti-choice belief that abortion is murder but giving someone the electric chair (60% of those they’d send to their death are already mothers so it’s an even more heinous desire) is justice?

    Thanks for the information, Terri. And for some confirmation that those who fight against legal abortion have anything but women, children and families best interest at heart.

    Seriously if some doctor came at me with a vaginal transducer I would not refrain from kicking said doctor. And then I would sue because that is riddiculus. “Just get over it” my a**.

    The legislature is setting up physicians to get sued – they have just created myriad more situations for doctors to be penalized in one way or another while also forcing women to undergo procedures that neither the woman needs or wants nor the doctor in some situations.

    The irony is that OF COURSE if a physician feels that a vaginal ultrasound (or abdominal ultrasound) is warranted for medical reasons then that is what will happen. Why do we need government stepping in to tell both doctor and patient what is medically necessary? In most situations, women are provided an ultrasound prior to an abortion procedure.

    How many patients have come to the state legislators requesting this? How many physicians? If these state legislatures were being petitioned left and right by patients and doctors then there’d be reason to examine the issue. They aren’t.

    They are being lobbied by POLITICAL anti-choice groups seeking to set precedent and undermine the ability of women, their families and doctors to make the best decisions about their health and lives.

    It’s a travesty.

    Handmaid’s Tale – here we come.

    I would like to personally kick every one of those legislators – male *and* female – and then tell them to stay out of my business.

    If they feel the need to meddle, then let them go out into the wide world and work at a food bank or volunteer at a shelter.

    is to expose them. Let everyone know they are just anti-abortion extremists-not pro life. Then work to get them thrown out of office when they come up for re-election. Of course,it will take constant vigilance even then because other idealogues like them will always be running for political power.

    The doctor will definitely be sued. And, if the attorney is sharp, the doctor will be sued for more than just malpractice. Forcing a medical procedure on someone without consent is medical battery, which isn’t covered by malpractice insurance.

    Just another way to drive doctors out of the business, which will further decrease access to family planning services.

    When the ones who ought to be sued are the “pro” life legislators who voted for this mongrel of a bill. When these people run for re-election, I feel protestors should follow them and let voters know what hardships have been placed on women by the “pro”life bills they passed. Expose them for the fakes they are.

    I have have always hated anything political. But living in Oklhoma now I have been horrified by the laws that have been past in the last year. Now I have to check the newspaper every day to see what the lawmakers are doing to us next. Everyone of the lawmakers need to be voted out of office and we need people who don’t hate everyone except of course white males and sports!

    the sheer stupidity and cruelty towards women demonstrated by the legislaters who voted for this bill makes my hair hurt.. Every last one must be voted out of office. At every campaign stop, protestors should show up with pictures of vaginal transducers, to show voters what these idiots are forcing women to go through;that this indeed is a “big deal”.
