***Rep. Andy Gipson (R - Braxton) attempting to revive forced transvaginal ultrasounds***

The debate is over SB 2771, which Rep. Andy Gipson (R - Braxton) amended in committee to include language forcing women to undergo transvaginal ultrasounds prior to any abortion procedure.  (Including abortions performed for the reasons of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.)  Follow along live here.

***Correction - Gipson has offered an amendment to SB 2771 that would create an exception for rape, incest, or life of the mother cases.

Exceptions like that only go to further prove that this isn't about the safety of the mother or the fetus, but are shaming and punishment tactics. Gah! I feel like the world is becoming ever more mad around me.
