CNN contributor likens Virginia ultrasound law to consensual sex

The illustration above depicts how a vaginal ultrasound would be performed. As you know, vaginal ultrasounds have been in the news due to Virginia set to pass what some call its state-sponsored rape bill requiring women to have their cervices probed before they can have an abortion.

And CNN contributor Dana Loesch is just fine with that as she equates this practice to consensual sex. According to Little Green Footballs:

That’s the big thing that progressives are trying to say, that it’s rape and so on and so forth. And in fact, this big battle that I’ve, uh, totally won with Keith Olbermann by the way, like, not only won once but twice and three times… uh, there were individuals saying, [high voice] “Oh what about the Virginia rape? The rapes that, the forced rapes of women who are pregnant?” What!? Wait a minute, they had no problem having similar to a trans-vaginal procedure when they engaged in the act that resulted in their pregnancy.

It’s taken me five minutes just to pull my thoughts together after reading that bullshit just to type out this sentence…

It’s apparent that the likes of Loesch and other right-wing, anti-woman, anti-choice activists have no problem with violating the rights and privacy of women and minorities they deem as a drain society. I’ve heard this ass-backwards logic Loesch presents us with so many times that I truly am unfazed at how vile, hateful and anti-American these people are when it comes to women and our rights. Conservative, anti-choice activists and politician’s obsession with protecting zygotes and fetuses (nope–they are not humans) has become so powerful that these people have no problem with violating the constitutional rights of women and relegating our privacy to the back burner.

The right to seek an abortion is and always will be a problem to these people and they won’t stop until women’s  are pushed back into the dark alleys and seedy doctor’s offices in the name of protecting cells.
