I'll put this one in both the politics section and the womens section. it involves both. House Republicans muscle abortion restrictions to passage over passionate Democratic protests - dailypress.com Va House set to enact mandatory invasive ultrasound probe for women who seek abortions - The Washington Post　 98% of women use birth control in the United states. Every time it comes up, poll after poll goes against banning contraceptives. Yet republicans leaders always jump at it. Birth control is evil, abortion is murder, etc etc... It gets a lot of attention for a week or two and then it blows up. In Virginia, there is a republican bill that just past the state house and is on to the state senate that says any woman seeking an abortion must undergo an internal vaginal ultrasound. To be clear, if this bill is made into law any woman who wants an abortion then she must lay on a table and have a doctor stick a "probe" inside her gentiles. There is no medical cause for the procedure. None. This is a party that says the government has no right to demand anyone buy health insurance and yet these same people are saying the government has a right to insert a vaginal probe into a woman's body for no medical reason and she has no choice about it. Why is this not front page news? Where is the outrage for this?
