The Repubican War on Women Now Includes Sexual Assault ... Literally!
Virginian Republicans just passed a bill that would require women seeking a legal abortion to get a medically unnecessary and invasive trans-vaginal ultrasound against their consent. Where I come from, there's a word for violating a woman against her will ... rape. It's an ugly word for an ugly act. It's one thing to be against abortion, but abortion is legal. Rape isn't. Does it make sense to anyone that Virginia Republicans want to violate women?
