Yes, Virginia…It Sure as Hell Is a Big Deal

Quote of the day about the Virginia legislature’s bill which would force women to have a trans-vaginal ultrasound before an abortion:

Abortion legislation was a “tiny part” of the larger body of hundreds of bills in play in the legislature, State Senator Steve Martin said. “It’s simply not a primary focus,” he said. “It only appears to be because people call me from New York newspapers acting as if it’s some big deal.”

Yes, Senator Martin, it is a huge deal—if you’re a woman.

Here in the Great, Reactionary State of Texas, we already have a similar law.

I found this graphic on the website Burnt Orange Report in an article published last year called HB15–A Trans-vaginal Ultrasound Wand in Every Woman!

(Just substitute Virginia for Texas.)
