“The decision to per­form an ul­tra­sound be­fore abor­tion is a med­i­cal one that right­fully should be made by a pa­tient and doc­tor in con­sul­ta­tion. When law­mak­ers ... in­ter­vene in that decision, they politi­cize women’s health­care. Even now, in its amended ver­sion, the Virginia leg­is­la­tion would re­quire an ab­dom­i­nal ul­tra­sound of women seek­ing an abor­tion—again, a decision best left to a woman and her physi­cian. Not only that—it would re­quire the woman to pay for the pro­ce­dure, whether she wants it or not. This from the folks who say the gov­ern­ment can’t make you buy health in­sur­ance.”
