Soon NC Doctors Will Force Women To Look And Listen To Their Fetus Before Every Abortion

The good news? North Carolina won’t be discussing a constitutional ban on marriage equality this week. The bad news? The NC House just overrode Democratic Governor Bev Perdue’s veto of a guilt trippy bill requiring women to have ultrasounds, listen to the fetus’ heartbeat, and hear the doctor describe the size of its organs and limbs. Then, as an added bonus, the women must wait an additional 24-hours before the abortion proceeds. Today the Senate is expected to vote on the bill and it has a good chance of passing. While we’re at it, why not have the women write a 3-page essay discussing the abortion from the fetus’ point of view; y’know just to make sure the women have really thought about it?
