Here we are back to the old “default” topic of the digital illiterates, abortions and this is pretty funny as it mocks the ridiculousness of a bill requiring an ultrasound. You know what, there will be more rectal exams going on I bet than abortions:) Sad that the amendment didn’t make it through though as it should have but the GOP barely voted it off. The ultra sound part of the bill is still up for a final vote. BD
To protest a bill that would require women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) on Monday attached an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.
"We need some gender equity here," she told HuffPost. "The Virginia senate is about to pass a bill that will require a woman to have totally unnecessary medical procedure at their cost and inconvenience. If we're going to do that to women, why not do that to men?"
