State legislators at it again with the Transvaginal Probes

Indiana Bill Would Force Women To Undergo Two Transvaginal Probes To Take A Pill
A medication abortion pill, officially known as RU-486, is the earliest available abortion option for a woman.
A patient could be as little as one week pregnant and take the pill to terminate. But despite the incredibly early stage at which the pill is administered, a new bill proposed in the Indiana State Senate would require women to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound before they are permitted to simply swallow the medication.

Indiana’s effort follows a sweeping national trend to mandate the medically unnecessary and invasive procedure as a way to create barriers to abortion access. And theirs goes a step further, by also forcing clinics that administer the pill to meet all of the same requirements as a surgical abortion clinic:

The provision is included in Senate Bill 371, which also would require any clinic that dispenses the drug — known as RU-486 — to meet the same requirements as a clinic that performs surgical abortions, though physicians’ offices would be exempt.

1. It reeks of men wanting Taliban like control over women. Makes my skin crawl.

2. Inserting an object in a woman's vagina

against her will is RAPE. Plain and simple. I think to make it fair, men should be required to have a proctoscopy before getting viagra. How does that insertion of a foreign object into one's body sound now?

4. I have a friend from Indiana

Even he has said it's getting a little scary over there. Apparently his mother is a prepper (I don't know if I got that correct), one who prepares for an armed revolution.

I'd like to see mandated anal probes suggested for some of the male legislators sponsoring these laws. I'm sure they'd run screaming like little boys.

Edit: To be clear I'm not saying they should be anal probed, only that it should be suggested as well since they clearly think it's ok to violate women's bodies.
