I keep wanting to scream, “TRANSVAGINAL ULTRASOUNDS ARE ALREADY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW TODAY IN TEXAS!!!!”
Texas has THREE times as many people as Virginia AND they already have mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds before abortions (I also have no hard data but I’m going to guess that Texas probably also has a much larger poor population and a higher percentage of minorities, both groups which have so many barriers to accessing abortion as it is).
I’m glad people are mad about Virginia. I’m glad Amy Poehler is talking about it on SNL. I’m glad that people whom I’ve never seen speak up about this issue are now because of what is POSSIBLY going to happen in Virginia. I’m pleased with these developments.
But please, let’s STOP talking about mandatory transvaginal ultrasounds like they MAY happen. THEY ARE HAPPENING.
I remember thinking that - being from Texas, the proposed Virginia law sounded very familiar… This isn’t some radical law that you can rally and prevent from becoming fully formed. It is fully formed. And it’s spreading.
THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS
Fun fact: Rick Perry actually called an “emergency session” of the Texas Legislature for this bill (also for Voter ID laws, Sanctuary City laws, and other stuff to bolster his GOP cred pre-Presidential run). I shit you not.
Honestly, I am annoyed that practically no one outside Texas even gave a fuck when this happened. Where was everyone that is protesting Virginia right now when we needed them? Oh? We’re not on the west or east coast you say? and we’re southern? That’s cool. You could have at least helped and maybe Virginia wouldn’t have a precident to go off of.
Why is everyone pretending this is news?
