Michiganís GOP House Speaker Rules Out Transvaginal Ultrasound Bill [View all]

Source: TPM

Michigan's House Speaker Jase Bolger (R) on Thursday categorically ruled out legislation introduced by his Republican colleagues to mandate transvaginal ultrasounds for women before having an abortion.

"While I want to be sure women have access to the best technology available, I have absolutely no interest in forcing a woman to have a transvaginal ultrasound," Bolger said in a statement. "This House of Representatives will not pass a bill mandating transvaginal ultrasounds."

Bolger added: "We must increase the value of life in Michigan because all life is valuable and no life is disposable. No matter a person's beliefs regarding abortions, I hope we in Michigan can come together on goals we can all agree on. Specifically, I hope we can improve pre-natal care. I hope we can increase support for women who may need it if they become unexpectedly pregnant. I hope we can improve and increase adoptions in Michigan. I hope that a woman who becomes unexpectedly pregnant and cannot keep her baby knows she will receive all the support she needs to have that baby and that a Michigan family will be able to quickly adopt, love and raise the child."
