This week, the Kentucky Senate voted to require doctors to perform an ultrasound on women seeking an abortion, and describe what they see to the woman even if she doesn't want to see or hear it. It's about, quite literally, forcing medical professionals to be the voice of a state legislature that is trying to coerce and shame women out of getting a safe and legal abortion.http://bit.ly/1fIAlnw

Seems reasonable.  Why shouldn't women be fully informed?

Thankfully it's only a two hour drive from the center of Kentucky to another state.

Besides the aclu will be on this. Thks exact law was over turned in another state.

I think most men and some women have no idea how awful an intravaginal ultrasound is. I do think there are legitimate medical reasons for doing them immediately before abortions, such as dating the pregnancy, but they should be a part of the procedure, not a qualification for it.

And I hate abortion and wish it didn't exist at all.

This. These women should know they're killing a baby. It's time to stop sugar coating it.

i agree with it. a woman should be fully informed before any procedure including abortion.

It's amazing to me how many women are ok with this.

Politicians shouldn't dictate medical processes.

I'm sure men would be up in arms if a law forced them to undergo unnecessary procedures at their expense when they explicitly stated they didn't want it.

Intravaginal ultrasound is not something thats horrific.
