South Carolina

Hey! That's me! Number 1090 and I voted NO.

South Carolina wants to force women to look at an ultrasound image of their own fetus before being allowed to have an abortion.

Opinions vary predictably: the female OB-Gyn is opposed to this bill, but the male OB-GYN seems to approve of it, and the male pastor doesn't condemn it very strongly.

If you can't stand the thought of reading the entire article [I couldn't], that's ok. Just go vote in the poll here. Not that I have a lot of faith in this one little poll being able to sway a significant number of votes in the South Carolina legislature, but it can't hurt to try.

Maybe they can propose a law to require people to watch cows getting slaughtered before eating at McDonalds too.

that would be a fun experiment to set up. my guess: they'd just drink bigger cokes and eat more fries.
