Rape is one of the few exceptions.
But an informed decision is always the right approach to any medical procedure. Denying women the opportunity to make an informed decision about having an abortion makes no sense.
An ultrasound is required before any invasive medical procedure even to remove a benign tumor.
Women undergo a procedure that stops a human heartbeat and removes a developing human being from their bodies without having undergone a sonogram or an ultrasound first to make an informed decision. Many women have no idea what is going on inside their bodies or are even informed verbally.
This has nothing to do with government interfering with a procedure of choice. It has everything to do with following medical protocol and women being given the opportunity to make an informed choice - not an emotional one.
Hard to fathom being that clueless.

Offering such is one thing, forcing it on cases of already stigmatized emotions is another, and there's no way anyone would ever convince me that any situation like rape or incest, is from any kind of caring "God". That's just warped.

So I for one, would have to tell them to stuff their high dollar charge usage of equipment up their noses, with a few other choice words along with it, because in that sense, it's just as bad as the ones who "insist" women "need" such for informed decision making, when the "almighty scientific" standard testing results, don't align with the standard norm charts...so there "must be" something "wrong".

Bullchit (exception being those who insist on such for others might need to look into their own mirrors of relflection for that "something must be wrong")

Uncalled for, risky invasiveness, is just that, in any arena of that spectrum.

Just mine own opinion though.

Repeal would actually save money instead of cost more. We could then layoff IRS workers and the private sector would start hiring people for "full time" jobs again, you moron.

The GOP Is Terrified Obamacare Could Be a Success

Has anyone else noticed how pathetically frightened the Republican Party is that Obamacare just might succeed?

I know, we’re all supposed to think the End Is Nigh because the government has decided to give the 10 percent of large employers who don’t insure their workers another 365 days to do so before levying a small penalty. This could not possibly be a reasonable accommodation to protect jobs and businesses, because as everybody knows, this president hates jobs and businesses.

No, this brief delay must be a sign that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act is destined to result in abject failure. After all, that’s what every Congressional Republican with the ability to hit send on a press release has told us, over and over again, hoping that repeating their prediction enough times will somehow make it true.

But here’s my question: if Republicans are so confident Obamacare will end badly, why not just shut up about it? It’s not like they have the votes to repeal the law—a math problem they still haven’t solved after 37 different tries. Their appeal to the Supreme Court ended in defeat at the hands of a conservative chief justice. And now the bulk of the plan will begin to take effect in just a few months.

At this point, why not sit back and wait for this crazy experiment to self-destruct? Why not let President Obama and the Democrats reckon with the millions of angry Americans who will undoubtedly hate their new insurance or their new insurance protections?

Because Republicans are terrified that Obamacare could actually work. Already, the law has provided 54 million Americans free access to preventive services like check-ups and mammograms. More than six million seniors have saved more than six billion dollars on their prescriptions. Nearly 13 million consumers have received more than one billion dollars in rebates from insurance companies that had overcharged them. There are more than three million happy young adults who have been allowed to stay on their parents’ health insurance until they turn 26. And in California, a state that represents one-fifth of the U.S. economy, we’ve learned that premiums for the law’s new insurance options have come in lower­ than expected.

As these successes build, Republicans are naturally coping with their fear the only way they know how: by scaring the hell out of everyone else.
