The Supreme Court Tuesday denied re-evaluating an Oklahoma decision which ruled it unconstitutional to require doctors to show women an ultrasound of their baby prior to aborting it. This is the second time this month the Court has turned away the state’s anti-abortion appeals.
At last week's signing of "executive actions" designed to combat gun violence in America, President Obama, flanked by schoolchildren, said, "...when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now."
Virginia recently enacted a new law making theirs the eighth state to require an ultrasound to be performed prior to an abortion. As with other states that have passed similar measures, Virginia’s law provides the mother “an opportunity to view the ultrasound image of her [baby] prior to the abortion,” but it is an option she can decline.
There's no doubt that Planned Parenthood and its supporters had a brilliant strategy: Get as many people as possible to repeat the word "transvaginal" in news and commentary stories, and accomplish two things: Defeat legislation at hand and make your opposition look like a freak show.
