Well, okay then.

Sue Swayze, the legislative director of Indiana Right to Life, told local radio station WBAA that that goal of the bill is to protect women’s safety and hold abortion clinics to higher health standards. She said she does not understand why it would be a problem to mandate transvaginal ultrasounds. “I got pregnant vaginally,” she said. “Something else could come in my vagina for a medical test that wouldn’t be that intrusive to me. So I find that argument a little ridiculous.”

4. Liar = not their goal / not even close/Not OK

"To protect women’s safety and hold abortion clinics to higher health standards"
..... by having an ultrasound? that is BS; just raises the price of procedure and cuts out lower income patients esp.the very young

6. Hey Sue..sit on this!

She obviously has never had one. To force unnecessary penetration is a form of rape in my book. Stay out of other women's bodies, Sue!

7. yes, they are just so much fun

Maybe she could go on tv and have one done on herself and show us all how much fun they are. I've had them. They are not fun. They are embarrassing and uncomfortable.

8. Not to mention

dangerous! Those are actually not only penetrating your inner body with a physical device but a device that emits ultrasound waves which could lead to uterine cancer among other maladies. Whomever it was who invented those, I believe, never intended them to be used in this manner or for this purpose. And it was probably not a woman who invented them. I suspect they were invented to detect cancerous cells but if these things are forced beyond the birth canal, they should be outlawed all together. It's not just rape, it's also torture with intent to do severe damage to a woman's body and psyche.

The use of such devices in general practice is not only humiliating but painful, dangerous and intended to punish women on a number of ideological levels and have no place in general OB/GYN practices.

Any politician who advocates for the use of these things should also be forced to endure the use of them including the male faction, and if they don't like it they can just close their eyes.

9. I will say this. For detecting ovarian cancer it's the best we have right now.

That and the blood tests. Hopefully, there will be a better way to detect it in the future, but for now I will go for my annual tests. It should not be used for trying to prevent abortions.

13. That's my point though

they were probably invented to detect caner, like ovarian cancer, but have no business being used for anything else. It seems that somebody will be making some serious money off of this, like the corporation who manufactures them.

I stopped having pap smears and all other exams at 45. If I get cancer then I guess I'll just have to live with it until it wins the game. There's no way I could pay for any kind of treatment and I really don't care to prolong my life given that the quality of my life would be so degraded that I wouldn't consider it worthwhile... and I am done with the medical industrial complex and choose not to participate in that anymore. I make my own medicines with legal ingredients and when those are not enough, I will be done inhabiting this body anyway. I ain't a scared of dying, not in the least. I just want it to be quick when it happens, even if I have to help it. I've witnessed enough family and friends enduring the cancer ordeal and most were regretting that they attempted to fight it before it was over. Some of them died from the treatment that was allegedly designed to heal them. Not interested in going that route.

11. Presumably she got pregnant through an intimate act with someone she loves and trusts

...not by a virtual stranger who stuck something inside her because the state mandated it.

Still not seeing the difference, Sue?
