27. I think a lot of male doctors hand that shit out like candy.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, a bit o'lead for the old pencil, wot wot! Ask and Ye Shall Receive. Of course, those doctors get rewarded for their prescription writing skills by some Big Pharma corporations.

Since the women aren't getting much of their care paid for, EITHER, particularly in the family planning end of things, I believe her point was that what's sauce for the goose, and all that....didn't you read the article? I think a doctor sticking his paw up someone's ass in the context of a regular office visit is far less "costly" than subjecting a woman to a sonogram.

Pro-abortion rights advocates consider the ultrasound provision a tactic to add cost and inconvenience to the process with the goal of getting women to change their minds.

Why is it "medically necessary" to have a sonogram and be pushed towards viewing it? Answer--it's NOT. Why is that sonogram "placed in the patient's permanent record" like it's a failing grade in algebra or something? I think the end result is that this kind of shit will push women to seek services out-of-state, at least until sanity can be restored in VA.

Why are legislators even acting as doctors in the first place? Because they want to be morally intrusive and violate the privacy rights of people seeking abortion services in VA.

I think this legislator is doing a fine job of making a valid point, in a legislative fashion--basically, this is a lawmaking way of saying "Shove it." Good for her. It's a pity her measure didn't pass.

Virginia is getting more hateful by the year.
