But the law only calls for an ultrasound. From what I understand, a transvaginal probe is only to improve resolution in the early stages of pregnancy. It doesn't sound to me as though a woman will be forced into a procedure because of better resolution.
I think the ultrasound requirement is a retarded attempt to further their agenda but I do think the left took this one too far. I think that ordering unnecessary procedures should be sufficient.
Are you sure? The laws are mandating that the woman see the fetus in the early weeks of pregnancy, thereby creating the necessity of the use of the vaginal probe; they're just not calling it that anymore. They're calling it transvaginal ultrasound. Furthermore, either way, the cost is not covered by insurance; therein creating a further financial hardship on the woman. I'll have to look at the final bills in those states that have been pushing this.
I think VA took out the vaginal probe requirement, but what about Wisconsin and Ohio? North Dakota and Texas?

"The Obama Administration has put forward an opening bid in what are sure to be contentious 2014 budget negotiations, issuing a solidly progressive transportation budget that calls for increased overall spending and continued investment in passenger rail." "The $76 billion transportation budget would represent a 5.5 percent, or $4 billion, spending increase over 2012 levels.

In addition, the president repeated his call for $50 billion in stimulus-style funding in 2014. Of this one-time funding infusion,$40 billion would be reserved for “fix-it-first” projects aimed at bringing the nation’s roads, bridges, and transit systems into a state of good repair. The other $10 billion would be offered on a competitive basis to “innovative” projects, through programs like TIGER."

Advocates for smart growth praised the president’s proposal.

“Building strong communities is a key part of America’s economic growth, and I applaud the President for investing in programs that do just that in his FY 2014 budget,” Smart Growth America President and CEO Geoff Anderson said in a press release.“Investments in infrastructure and ‘fix it first’ projects will help businesses compete in the 21st century economy and will help working Americans get where they need to go more easily and more efficiently.”

How's that investigation into Eric Holder running guns for Mexican drub cartels going?
How's that investigation into why the Americans got hung out to dry in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real time video feed going?
How's that investigation into the unconstitutional acts of the NSA going?
Where the fuck is our budget?
Why does the government continually lie about there being only 11 million illegal aliens here when 15 years ago the official government estimate was 12 million?
etc., etc., etc.

But, you're right. It would be hard to prove there's any investigation happening.

North Dakota passed an abortion ban over 6 weeks; Arkansas passed one at twelve weeks; Ohio passed one after a heartbeat could be confirmed...everything they do overplays their agenda, but anyone with half a brain knows what their agenda is, and the vast majority do not want Roe V Wade struck down.

Depending how offensive the tattoo/jewelry was, Galt would request another waitress. Facial jewelry is an obvious source of infection, as are tattoos. No hepatitis with my food, please.
But haven't had that problem yet.
Galt was referring more to professional employees, where one cannot risk offending a client.
Interesting that consent is required for a tattoo, but not for an abortion.

Yeah, and not be subjected to some doctor getting off on sticking a probe into you. They say that the woman has to see the fetus; why? What if she refuses too? Will the police be called in and they force her to stare at it? They're forcing doctors into difficult positions with their patients. Who will know if it was done or not? Hidden cameras? Oh please.
The lawsuits will be endless.

An agreement between Democrats and RINOs isn't bipartisan. That would be an agreement among Democrats.
I haven't liked McCain since he co-authored the obviously unconstitutional Line Item Veto legislation in 1996.
McCain is a Democrat.
McCain met with Al Qaeda a week after they massacred a Christian village in Syria.
McCain wants US troops to fight alongside Al Qaeda in Syria.
McCain is just another RINO Democrat that has no respect for the Constitution.
McCain is part of the problem.
Yep, if they're not a right wing idiot they're a Democrat.

McCain's an ass nonetheless.

Buoyant Barack: A Spring of Fake Scandals Does Little Damage to President Obama

....Buoyant Barack must really frustrate Republicans, who have literally spent all of their energy and resources on bringing Obama down. That was their stated goal from 2008-2012. When they failed, and he won by quite a bit in 2012, they went the scandal route (desperation alley).

They’ve done everything they can to destroy this man, from calling him a Kenyan without a birth certificate to saying he pals around with terrorists. They say he’s Nixon. They say he’s Bush. They label every weather pattern Obama’s Katrina. They scream and holler about his racism. They jump up and down accusing him of being worse than anyone ever even Hitler!!!!!! They accuse him of trying to kill Sarah Palin’s baby. They whine about whether or not he should be allowed to speak about his childhood, since his being black is so “divisive”. They call him a murderer over an array of issues.

The media carries all of these lies to the headlines for Republicans, passing off Republican congressional aides’ version of reality as news, and even lying to you and telling you they have read the Benghazi emails when they are actually being told by Congressional Republicans what the emails said (and of course, they did not say what Republicans claimed they did).

Yet, in the end, Americans shrug. Americans still like and trust this president a heck of a lot more than they do Republicans.

49%? Republicans only got 1% knocked off this President’s approval ratings, as they obstruct the economic recovery and manufacture scandals meant to hurt his overall character/trustworthiness?

This, my friends, is what we call an epic fail.
