Senate gives preliminary backing to abortion ultrasound bill | Richmond Times-Dispatch
A bill that would require a woman seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound took another step toward passage in the Virginia Senate today — but not before outnumbered Democrats rose to express their opposition in clinical terms.
Sen. Janet D. Howell, D-Fairfax proposed an amendment — that any man seeking prescription medication for erectile dysfunction must first submit to a digital rectal exam and cardiac stress test.
Howell told her colleagues on the Senate floor that she was proposing the amendment because Senate Bill 484 requires women “to have an unnecessary medical procedure, it’s adding to the cost and and it’s opening them up for emotional blackmail.”
“I think we should just have a little gender equity here,” Howell added.
I am all for this…and then scrapping these idiotic laws. Scarlet letters are the next step for these idiots, and they will, of course be exempt.
