Oh noez! Other choices besides abortion? We can't have that! A snippet of the psychobabble referenced in the above tweet, from terminally butthurt Robin Marty at RHUnRealityCheck:
Obtaining a legal, safe abortion in Virginia has just become more difficult as a new mandatory forced ultrasound law goes into effect. The General Assembly approved a bill that requires any pregnant woman or girl seeking to end a pregnancy to first undergo a mandatory forced ultrasound and wait 24 hours before having the actual procedure, regardless of if the ultrasound is medically necessary or not.
Although the waiting period itself is obviously meant to force patients to rethink their decisions, as well as add additional obstacles and expenses to safe abortion care, there is likely another ploy here as well. Just like it a nearly identical bill proposed and eventually tabled in Idaho, Virginia has released a list of places a woman can go in order to obtain free ultrasounds
Free ultrasounds-at CPCs! It's just a ploy to get them in the door! They might see their babies on those ultrasounds and change their minds. Libs are all for freebies at the expense of taxpayers (see: ACA) unless said freebies could possibly lead to women choosing other than the holy sacrament of abortion-then freebies are pervasive evil that must be condemned. Don't see Planned Parenthood offering any free ultrasounds. Wonder why that is. More lulz:
On top of that, with no legal requirements to keep medical data private, just by visiting the clinics women open themselves up to more potential leaked information. The staff, most of whom wouldn't even be trained medical professionals, would be providing unregulated medical "advice" and medical procedures without any oversight or accountability.
Potential leaked information, such as actual data on fetal devlopment. Oh, the horror! Anything referring to unregulated medical advice from the self-policing and self-regulating abortion industry is, as always, comedy gold and totally hypocritical.
