My message to Gov. of Va: Governor, as a physician sworn to "do no harm", I am appalled at a mandate for an unnecessary procedure such as ultrasound to be performed on women choosing pregnancy termination. Using a medical procedure as punishment and inducement to change one's mind is wrong, wrong, wrong! The choice of pregnancy termination is between a woman and her doctor, and no physician in his or her right mind would order a contraindicated procedure like this. Is the Commonwealth of Virginia prepared to defend against untold number of malpractice suits?
