Too Far, Much Too Far

Virginia is trying to pass legislation for transvaginal ultrasound exams as a requirement for a woman to have an abortion.  The Virginian Governor is eager to sign the bill into law.

A few states already require this procedure for women seeking termination of a fetus, but the test is not thought to be necessary by most doctors.  So, the procedure takes a woman already struggling with a very difficult decision through what some describe as a kind of medical rape.  Knowing this, it is a little disconcerting that the top mentioned Republican candidate for the vice president position on the GOP ticket this election cycle is the Virginian Governor. 
I will never vote Republican again in my life, but I hope the GOP someday returns to a semblance of a sane responsible party.  Rough and independent.  A party that learns human decency as the years roll on, (i.e. Lincoln), and then applies lessons learned to a stubborn opinion that is moved only because it understands more and more. 

The human race will never be anywhere near 100% consensus on abortion it seems.  We need better solutions than to have states imposing medically questionable procedures that may be very cruel in deed and intention.
