2/15/12 As Rachel Maddow said last night on her show, “Republicans in Virginia want a government so big that it can literally get inside individual citizens genitals by force and without their consent.” The Virginia House passed a bill yesterday mandating that women seeking an abortion must first undergo an invasive trans-vaginal ultrasound—a probe inserted into the vagina. Traditional ultrasounds cannot produce a clear image of the fetus at the early stage of pregnancy when the vast majority of abortions take place. The Virginia Senate has already passed this measure and Governor Bob McDonnell has promised to sign it. The state up in arms about a health insurance mandate will now require a woman to submit to a vaginal probe against her will.
