Theocratic war against freedom arrives at Michigan
State Senator David Robertson (R-Grand Blanc Twp.) has introduced a bill that would require doctors to offer keepsake ultrasound photos to women who are seeking abortions.
The bill requires that doctors perform an ultrasound, offer a description of the ultrasound image, an opportunity to listen to the heartbeat of the embryo or fetus, and a hard copy of the image.
All of this is to be done at least two hours before the abortion procedure and women would be required to sign a statement acknowledging that these offers had been made.
Robertson did not return a call to talk about the bill, but both those who support the bill and those who oppose it agree that its intent is to dissuade women from having abortions.
A similar bill has been introduced in the House.
Can’t have those women thinking for themselves as they would be much harder for us rich, white, Christian men to control them. GET BACK TO THE FUCKING KITCHEN, BITCH, AND MAKE MY FUCKING SANDWICH!!1
Once again, Republicans are at the forefront on the war against freedom (for those that don’t benefit their corporate and religious masters). The sooner this kind of thinking is dead, buried and forgotten, the sooner the country can move further forward; but as long as those that wish to retard freedom and equality for all remain in power, the US won’t be near the top of any (positive) list.
