    go through a double prostate exam to exercise his Second Amendment rights (just to make sure he has the cajones to use a gun), then women will gladly submit to a double transvaginal sonogram to exercise the right to choose that's guaranteed under our right to privacy.

      it's hard to find a perfect one.

      We need a legal medical procedure that is not too major but has the potential of greatly and positively impacting a person's life path. (as having a baby for the majority of woman is a life changing event). Sometimes it even could save the person's life or health or emotional well being.

      The procedure must be something that only men could want need or get.

      We need a group that is majority FEMALE for the analogy (only 82% of Congress is male, IIRC) that gets to decide laws around the legal medical procedure.

      We need the lawmaking women to decide that they will do everything in their power to make getting the procedure difficult or inconvenient...making overnight waiting periods so MEN have to stay overnight somewhere and take off work...forcing Men to have and pay for invasive uncomfortable medical procedures..(equivalent would be shoving a long probe up a man's butt) that they do not need...and to return multiple times for these unnecessary procedures.
      etc

      I wish there was a better analogy. Not enough people talk about the fact that it is majority MALE groups that are legislating on women's lives.

        none of them would vote for FORCING people, in order to have an important legal procedure that positively would impact a person's life, to have a PROBE stuck up into their BODY multiple times for No medical reason.

        It helps me see how SHAMEFUL this legislation is when I distill it to what it really is....(mostly) men legislating (unnecessary) repeated, penetration of a woman's body JUST so she will be more reluctant to get a legal medical procedure she wants and feels she needs.

        They are using that threat of penetration as a deterrent to women from getting that legal procedure they want.

        Some of these women have been raped.

        Lovely.
