    Having said that, one of the ironies in the madcap race to mandate ultrasounds of the uterus for all women seeking an abortion is that many doctors who perform abortions routinely use ultrasounds to confirm the age of the fetus. Women often miscount from their last period and it's important for the doctor to know whether she's about to abort a six-week old or ten-week old fetus, given that the procedure for each might differ.

    But the state has no business telling doctors how to perform the abortion, especially a bunch of politicians, many of whom may think a sonogram is a singing telegram.
