The crazy is spreading.
Pennsylvania GOP Rep. Kathy Rapp has introduced HB 1007 which would require an ultrasound before an abortion. While the exact type of test isn't specified in the bill the transvaginal probe is most likely the one to be ordered.
This article at Addicting Info
“Rapp’s bill does not specify the type of ultrasound a woman would be forced to undergo to have an abortion. But since most abortions performed in Pennsylvania are done in the first trimester, a transvaginal ultrasound likely would be ordered.”
Fortunately, the article points out, the bill has been tabled but is likely to come back.
I like this part from the article;
These bills are coming up in the name of religious freedom but what it’s really about is forcing others to adopt the beliefs of others. Religious freedom doesn’t give someone the right to force their beliefs on someone else. It gives each person the right to believe what they want to believe without persecution. But persecution is exactly what Republicans are seeking. Republicans say this is about religious freedom but they conveniently ignore the religious freedom of the women they seek to strip rights from. To date, Republicans in Georgia, Virginia, Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio, Utah, and Oklahoma have all sought to pass laws that persecute women. Some of those states have successfully done so.<...>
