Doesn't this pretty much defeat the stated purpose of a mandatory ultrasound law? (Via Think Progress):
"We made a statement during the campaign and wouldn't change it," Corbett said. "As long as it's not obtrusive, but we're still waiting to see."Corbett is either ignorant or a liar. Because, yes, "just closing your eyes" absolutely defeats the purpose of this crap bill. The purported purpose of the bill, nauseatingly called the "Women's Right to Know Act" is to "inform" women. Which means it basically forces women to see a fetal heartbeat, to be "informed" that they're pregnant. Because silly little women seeking an abortion might have missed that critical fact.
When asked about women having to watch the ultrasound, Corbett said, "I don't know how you make anybody watch, OK. Because you just have to close your eyes. But as long as it's on exterior not interior."
But "you just have to close your eyes"? Is that like rape victims just need to "lie back and enjoy it"? Sure sounds like it.
