I am stunned at the gall this takes. I mean, the GOP could at least buy me drinks first.
Whether you are pro- or anti-choice, it's an issue that is going so far, I can't believe it. Does a woman have so little value in a part of our society that we are to be invaded, prodded, and examined in such humiliating fashion? Make no mistake, this is a "give and inch, take a mile" moment here. Soon, we'll be hearing about bills to limit our rights even further. IRL, I've heard people discussing limiting maternity leave to MARRIED women only. The justification was that a single woman will have so many absences in the future, she'll cost a company too much money. When I heard that, I thought it was so out of touch & stupid, that it didn't even bear thinking about. Then these ultrasound bills started passing, and the transvaginal tests were discussed. It's crazy, but all too true.
As the arc of history bends towards justice, it's a new, more progressive day. --Steve Benen, The Maddow Blog, 11-07-12
