An Oklahoma judge on Tuesday overturned a state law that required women seeking an abortion to receive an ultrasound and a doctor's description of the fetus.Her ruling also overturned provisions in the law that allowed doctors and other healthcare providers to refuse to take part in an abortion for moral or religious reasons, required certain signs to be placed in clinics where abortions are performed, and prohibited wrongful-life lawsuits arguing that a disabled child would have been better off aborted.
Because God forbid a woman make an informed medical choice. But then, it seems to me many of the "pro-choice" crowd do not even regard an abortion as a medical procedure . . . unless they are rallying to have our tax dollars pay for it.
"The ultrasound provision takes away a patient's choice about whether or not to view an ultrasound, and it requires physicians to provide information to their patients that the physicians do not believe is medically necessary," Toti said. "It's an affront to women's autonomy and decision-making power, and it's also an intrusion to the physician-patient relationship."
What a minute, how is having this information an "affront . . . to [her] decision-making power?" Rather, you are preventing the woman from having all the facts, which - *gasp* - might mean she decides to keep the baby and an abortion mill is out another $600.
Fuck you, counsel - you just want to keep women ignorant and down on the government plantation.
