    RICHMOND

    The state Senate this afternoon gave preliminary approval for legislation that would require pregnant women to undergo ultrasound imaging before an abortion, but not before rejecting a Democratic senator’s attempt to add what she described as “a little gender equity” to the bill.

    Democrat Janet Howell of Fairfax County proposed requiring men to undergo a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before getting prescriptions for erectile dysfunction drugs such as Viagra.

    “This is a matter of basic fairness,” Howell said.

    Senate Bill 484 would require a pregnant woman to undergo ultrasound imaging to determine the gestational age of the fetus, and be given an opportunity to view the ultrasound image, before having an abortion. The proposed law also requires the abortion provider to keep a printed copy of the ultrasound image in the patient’s file.

    Hilarious. Since men want to tell women what to do with their bodies then I think a bill should come before them suggestion any man having more then one child out of wedlock should have a vasectomy. Funny thing I never hear any men agreeing with me on this issue. Hmmmmm interesting. Tell you what to those men who want to tell women what to do with our bodies you mind your business and we will mind ours.

    18. Love this and

    the Senator too!!
    I am so sick of these male anti-abortion politicians using women's bodies as their own property.
    Of course they disregard the fact that there are many women who are against abortion on demand as well.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    There is no other word for these efforts to thwart a woman's legal choice to have an abortion than governmental harassment. Lawyers should get involved and make it expensive and painful for legislators to keep trying these workarounds to Roe.

    Judges can award damages paid from the state treasuries, and the plaintiffs can donate that money to Planned Parenthood. Sweet.

    They wouldn't have to do a workaround around Roe if the Supreme Court had not intially usurped the power of the legislature.

    I agree with you.

    I didn't check the thread, but since a large number of black children are born out of wedlock did anyone call her a racist like they would if a consrvative said something like that?

    You mean the power of the legislature to crawl inside your vagina and make medical decisions for you?
