Oklahoma's Abortion Law
We interrupt regular programming to bring you this important story. I couldn't be more appalled by the new abortion law just passed in Oklahoma. Under the new law, all women must have sonograms before abortions--no exceptions. The doctor must show the woman the screen and describe whatever heartbeat, organs, limbs, etc., they see there. (On the other hand, women can't sue doctors if they don't mention abnormalities they may see.) It's one thing to offer women the option of a sonogram. To require it and offer unrequested information is a completely unacceptable violation of a woman's privacy and autonomy. Appalling.
