Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed an abortion bill today that requires an ultrasound before the procedure. "That’s just the medical standard. To confirm the gestational age of the pregnancy, before any procedure is done, you do an ultrasound."
Unbelievable, right? Only a crazy, right-wing troglodyte would require an ultrasound be done.
Oh, that's actually a quote from a Planned Parenthood official, confirming to Commentary the abortion provider's policy.
Not surprising, of course, but the media's stories today say nothing about that, making it seem like Walker and the Republican legislators are somehow inventing a need for an ultrasound. The articles do, however, talk up the lawsuit Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups are planning.
