Jon Stewart nails it again in video above on the Virginia bill to require women seeking an abortion during the early part of pregnancy to have a trans-vaginal ultrasound. That is, the law mandates that women have an object inserted in their vagina whether they want it or not.
The bill was pushed, as you'll see in the video, by politicians who decry government mandates and intrusion — health insurance, birth control pills, TSA patdowns. Foreign objects pushed into the genitals of unwilling women? That's OK.
UPDATE: The pressure got to Gov. Bob McDonnell, who had favored the bill. He won't sign it. He wants it to be amended to require only an ultrasound that passes over the exterior of a pregnant woman's stomach.
How did Jason Rapert miss this idea in the last session?
FURTHER ON THE SUBJECT OF FORCING ANOTHER'S BELIEFS ON WOMEN:
In a new Daily Kos/SEIU State of the Nation poll, 67% oppose letting their employer's beliefs restrict their insurance coverage, thus limiting their access to widely-available and popular medical treatments like contraception.
The poll asked respondents: "Do you think employers should be allowed to deny health care coverage to their employees for doctor-recommended health care services if those services are contrary to the employer’s religious beliefs or moral convictions, or do you think all workers should be allowed access to all doctor-recommended health care services, regardless of their employer’s beliefs?"
