Best Way to Piss Off the Majority of Idaho Women

Introduce an abortion ultrasound bill like Sen. Chuck Winder

September 26, 2012

OK, guys, here's a hint on how to better understand women: Never, ever presume you know what's best for them, especially when it has to do with their own bodies and lives. It's a lesson Boise Republican Sen. Chuck Winder learned the hard way when he introduced a bill requiring all women seeking an abortion first undergo an ultrasound--which in most cases would have required an intrauterine probe. He quickly figured out it wasn't just the Pro Choice supporters he had ticked off--even otherwise conservative women said the bill crossed too many lines and that the government had no right to dictate women's medical care. While he has said the bill might be back in another form next year, we think he's just lucky no one gave him a personal demonstration of an intracolonic ultrasound.

As an Sonographer, I know a patient can refuse the endovaginal exam and just have an abdominal US. Banning abortion after 20 weeks is reasonable, for they are living beings that can experience pain, and it is extremely dangerous for the mother to undergo a procedure like that after 20 weeks. Pro-abortionists ignore this fact.

Abortions after 20 weeks only make up about 1% of all abortions. Most of these are performed when the woman's life is at risk or the fetus is not viable. Would you force a woman to carry a fetus with anencephaly for 20 extra weeks knowing it has no chance for life? Would you force a woman with toxemia to die because her doctor feared he would lose his license if he performed an abortion? These conditions are often not discovered until after 20 weeks. Women do not wake up at 20 weeks and just decide to have an abortion. The CDC statistics clearly prove that having an abortion carries fewer risks than having a baby. Making serious decisions like this should be left to the woman and her doctor. If you don't approve of abortion, don't have one.
