Recently a writer claimed that “having your finger pricked is a lot more invasive than having an ultrasound.”

The writer must not be aware that three states, Texas, Oklahoma and North Carolina enacted laws mandating that the ultrasound probe be placed in the vagina.

Virginia and Pennsylvania tried, but failed, to pass the same law.

Such a bodily invasion is not the practice of medicine, it is a perversion of medical technology.

The diagnosis of pregnancy does not require an ultrasound.

These laws were designed to harass and humiliate women, not to help them.

Telling doctors to do things to people against their will is disgusting politics.
