Virginia: Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Mandate Enacted
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/08/us/vir...f=politics


Quote:Gov. Bob McDonnell signed a bill requiring a woman seeking an abortion to undergo an abdominal ultrasound first, making Virginia the eighth state to have such a requirement. Democrats and abortion rights groups criticized the legislation, which does not require the woman to look at the image, saying its effect will be to shame women. But abortion opponents say it offers the woman a chance to make a more informed decision. Mr. McDonnell softened the bill, making the requirement for an abdominal ultrasound, not a vaginal one.

Why do I facepalm every time I click on a news article these days. I hate to sound crass but I actually hope abortion rates go up just to prove these idiots wrong.

Nah. I shouldn't say that. I would be no better than those that hope the economy collapses just so they can blame Obama.

And Christian complain about attacks on Christianity. How is this anything but legislating morality based on what God wants?

Many Christians have no problem mandating how they interpret the Bible as law.
