I don't know whether the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) would prohibit these transvaginal ultrasounds that republicans have become so crazy for in the last few years, but it should. This is getting ridiculous. These bills previously reared their ugly head in Virginia, and have spread to other states where republicans hold the state house and / or legislature.
What's with republican men ... do they somehow get off on looking at the results of the scans, or just on the thought of subjecting women to them? Or do they get a buzz from the thought of abusing women in general?
“It is not up to the men, or the women for that matter, in the Legislature to be telling doctors they must do certain things…especially uncomfortable, invasive procedures before a woman can undergo a legal procedure,” Taylor told the Capital Times. “People should be outraged that this is how lawmakers are spending their time.”
