Former Sen. Jim DeMint Claims Women Want Forced Ultrasounds

Former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), who is now head of the conservative Heritage Foundation, claimed on NBC News' "Meet the Press" that women actually enjoy being forced by law to have an ultrasound.

DeMint was referring to states where Republicans have passed “informed consent” laws requiring women to have ultrasounds before having an abortion, noted RawStory.com.

“The more the ultrasounds have become part of the law, where a woman gets the opportunity to see that there’s a real child, it’s beginning to change minds, and I think that’s a good thing,” said DeMint.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow stated that it was not an "opportunity" to have the procedure, but a requirement by law.

“It’s an invasive vaginal forced procedure that a woman cannot say no to by order of the state government," Maddow reminded DeMint.

“She’s forgetting about the thousands of women who want an informed choice, who want the opportunity to get a free ultrasound, which they can get not from Planned Parenthood, but from a lot of these pregnancy centers," claimed DeMint.

Maddow again reminded DeMint that the ultrasounds were not are a "choice" and were not "free" in many of the states that require the procedure.

Any woman who doesn't already know that an elective abortion ends a pregnancy probably shouldn't be contributing to the gene pool.

Oh, that's right, he wants to make sure that women get the "opportunity" to be internally "probed" so that they can better see the hardest decision that they might ever have to make, plus PAY for this "opportunity".

What a tool. I saw a video clip of the exchange and this guy is out there, ladies!!!

 I think that alot of men should have forced anal and penal ultra sounds. It might answer a few questions.

I agree. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
