That’s about the size of it.
I’ve been raging on Twitter today about how batshit insane it is that Virginia is proposing that uterus-bearers undergo trans-vaginal ultrasounds before being allowed to have abortions. This means that a doctor, even if he or she knows that it is unnecessary, must probe inside the vagina to obtain an image of the fetus. Forcing an object inside someone, even if their pregnancy is a result of sexual assault.
That’s all it is; insane. No man, no person, nobody has the right to tell you what you can or cannot do with your own body. It’s horrific and ugly and I don’t know how else to describe it. Nobody deserves to be raped because of how they were dressed, or shamed because they are unable to or don’t want to give birth, or told on any level by anyone that they are a lesser person for having sex at all.
Yup. This news from Virginia left me feeling physically ill all day.
