The pro-abortion progressive lobby has worked extensively this past week to classify Virginia’s straight-forward law as “rape,” even though the law doesn’t dictate what sort of ultrasound should be used before a woman murders her child. The easiest and most reliable way is the transvaginal ultrasound, more common in the first trimester. Progressives act as though there are no other options available to avoid becoming pregnant, prior to getting pregnant, and that the consequence from their choice prior to sex is the problem.
Progressives’s argument regarding Virginia’s law is hysterical and wholly inaccurate. If a woman doesn’t want to be faced with an ultrasound then, according to statistics, practice responsibility: Studies prove that the overwhelming majority of women who choose abortion do so as a form of birth control.
Cases of rape and incest account for around less than 1% of abortions.
Furthermore, the greatest number of abortions are obtained by women who already have a child/children, so they know how anatomy and physiology works. A lack of planning on the woman’s part doesn’t constitute a mandate for legalized (and in the case of Planned Parenthood, publicly-funded) murder.
Abortion is NOT "murder" at all, Ms. Loesch!
Yesterday on The Dana Show, Loesch compared a mandatory trans-vaginal ultrasound (TVU) to having sex. The once conservative (now moderate) website Little Green Footballs debunked her lies.
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.
From the 02.17.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:
Loesch insulted Charles Johnson for calling her distortions out, by calling him a "pervert" on Twitter.
Digby at Hullabaloo:
I've been off-line for most of the day, so forgive me if that has been aired thoroughly and I missed it. I keep reading on twitter and elsewhere that the wingnuts are saying that women being forced to undergo a vaginal probe if they are seeking an abortion is the same as having sex (so why should the little sluts object?) Here's the lovely Dana Loesch.
Usually that particular view is expressed by some leering old man saying like "if it's inevitable, just relax and enjoy it" but the fresh faced Loesch (last heard saying she would like to urinate on corpses) saying it takes it to a different level. Why is it that right wing authoritarian types always equate coercion and humiliation with pleasure?
Here's the thing that is instinctively obvious to any normal person: the women are being forced to undergo a physically invasive procedure they do not want and which has no medical purpose by state actors for political reasons. It's like something out of the inquisition. No, these women are not virgins, but the last I heard the definition of rape didn't require virginity. It's about the state not being allowed to stick something inside your body in order to persuade you not to do something you have every legal right to do.
Loesch is a lying two-bit sack of dogshit.
