Insanity Wild Card

Let's talk about something that really riles me in a big way - the proposed bill to invasive ultrasound testing required for women who are considering abortion.

First - I am for all life.  I love babies.  I loved being pregnant.  But I was fortunate to be married, in love, and wanted my babies more than my own life.  I wasn't raped.  I wasn't ill so that a pregnancy would cause harm to me.  I wasn't a teenager.

Now, I'm not saying go willy nilly and have an abortion - I think some counseling would be helpful - but not an internal ultrasound - which is like being invaded twice.

How ridiculous is this?????

I see that it has been aborted, and well it should have.  

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one shocked by this.  It's barbaric and a total insult to all women everywhere.

This is my humble opinion and yours may differ and we agree to disagree.
