    It appears that they just accused the Democrats of it so that they could do it themselves, hoping that no one would even bat an eye lash..

    To require that a woman who seeks an abortion receive a somewhat invasive trans-vaginal ultrasound (due to the timing of the large majority of abortions, a trans-abdominal ultrasound is often times insufficient) and then wait up to 24 hours before having the abortion is a sick invasion of personal rights... The Virginia government, unable to pass a law that is palatable to the public and even some of their own conservative members, has decided to place as many barriers as possible in the way of a woman's right to choose..

    You can almost hear the minds churning trying to find a way to blame Obama for this. I expect it will be pointedly ignored and none will acknowledge it.

    So, besides the point that a trans-vaginal ultrasound is extraneous and causes discomfort to the patient..

    Adding this extraneous bit of testing increases medical costs.... For those whose heart strings aren't tugged at, maybe purse strings are more effective..
