* This is a transvaginal ultrasound probe.
(h/t Democratic Underground)
Republican Rep. Paul Ryan believes that any woman or girl that wants an abortion must be forced to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound. According to a bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-4th), and Rep. Paul Ryan, one of the cosponsors, a woman should be forced to have one of these ten inch probes shoved into her vagina if she dares to ask for an abortion. According to these Republicans, if a woman doesn't want to look at it, she can look away. Unfortunately, looking away from a forced vaginal exam doesn't take away the pain of the procedure.
- Paul Ryan would also like to ban some forms of birth control, and ban abortions - even if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. Why does Paul Ryan hate women? Doesn't he see us as equals?
- Paul Ryan want to give senior citizens vouchers for their medical coverage and destroy Medicare.
- Paul Ryan wants to end Pell grants for college students and allow only those that can afford to pay for college to go.
- Paul Ryan wants to slash programs for veterans, and aid to farmers.
- Paul Ryan wants the federal government to withdraw support from programs like Head Start, Title 1, and Special Education.
These ideas from Paul Ryan make me positively ill. Paul Ryan wants to make all these cuts so that millionaires can have more tax cuts. Shame on Paul Ryan.
