Default Virginia law would force women seeking abortion to undergo probe

Forcing women to have ultrasounds by probe,and in some cases forcing them to look at the results, before a first trimester abortion.

Sometimes I think parts of this country will be witch hunting next.

Why is it still acceptable to do this to women in a supposedly civilized country, that also likes to go around invading other countries in order to "bring them democracy"?

It isn't, by any standard of decency. I fail to see how it could be Constitutional to force someone to undergo a medical procedure against their will. But then of course the Court is dominated by conservatives (the real activist judges). Another example of "government out of our lives', but not out of yours.

Personally, I think that this is where government should step in and throw out religious right-wing garbage like this.

If there were actual separation of church and state here, that's what government would be for.

Why don't we just stone the women and have done with it, eh?

Funny you should mention that. One of Ron Paul's endorsements comes from this guy.

Howard Phillips, a Christian Reconstructionist who founded the Constitution Party. The most radical faction of covenant theology is called Christian Reconstructionism, a movement founded by R. J. Rushdoony that seeks to turn the book of Leviticus into law, imposing the death penalty for gay people, blasphemers, unchaste women, and other sinners.

(Stoning is Reconstructionists’ preferred method of execution because it is both biblical and fiscally responsible, rocks being “cheap, plentiful, and convenient.”)
They believe that local governments could adopt official religions and enforce biblical law.

Paul thanked this clown for his endorsement.

Oh I wish I could. Sadly, I cannot. Good article here about that movement and Paul's connection to them.

Good god ... as if he needs any encouragement from you. The man cut his right hand off, because he was convinced that any form of abuse from the right was an abomination.
