Don't let Pennsylvania violate women!
Write Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett today, and demand that he promise to veto any legislation that requires a transvaginal ultrasound without a woman's consent.
Just days after a similar bill in Virginia was altered in the face of a national outcry, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is poised to vote on a bill that would require women in Pennsylvania to undergo an invasive procedure known as a transvaginal ultrasound as a part of "informed consent" before having an abortion. At their own expense.
Under the Pennsylvania criminal code, this procedure could be classified as a sexual offense. Penetration "by forcible compulsion" with a foreign object is illegal in the state -- and there is no medically required purpose for the transvaginal ultrasound. This is especially horrible because this procedure required under the bill will be implemented without the woman's consent.
Fierce opposition is what helped defeat this in Virginia, and fierce opposition is what is needed here. Write Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett today, and demand that he promise to veto this terrible bill.
