Rep. Sean Duffy “probably agrees” with mandatory transvaginal ultrasound legislation. But he doesn’t really know because, he says, “I haven’t had one.” Well, I have. I’ve had several, in fact. So, Rep. Duffy, pull up a chair and let me explain how a transvaginal ultrasound works, and how it feels.
The claim that mandatory ultrasounds are about information has no basis in research or common sense. Luckily, conservatives are beginning to abandon that argument and admit that it’s all about punishing women for having sex.
According to Virginia Delegate David Englin doctors will be turned into criminals and women victims of a sex crime under the “object sexual penetration” law if Governor Bob McDonnell signs the state sanctioned rape bill. Mr. Englin plans to bring his case to the floor next week when the house debates the senate version of the bill.
