Stop using Dana Loesch as a commentator

On the Feb. 17, 2012 episode of "The Dana Show," Dana Loesch argued that the Virginia law forcing all women and girls receiving an abortion, even rape and incest victims, to be subjected to an invasive sonagram, which involves inserting a probe into the patient's vagina. As this medically-unnecessary penetration of a human body is intended solely to traumatize and humiliate women and girls, it is morally equivalent to state-sanctioned rape.

Loesch defended the law, not only criticizing Progressives who call it rape, but insisting that this procedure is no different from consensual sexual intercourse.

>>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.<<

First, her argument is irrelevant and insulting. Second, it ignores the FACT that not all sexual intercourse is consensual and pleasurable. Remember that the Virginia law has no exclusion for rape and incest victims.

Charles Johnson, writer on the "Little Green Footballs" blog, criticized Loesch. In respsonse, Loesch hatefully responded by not only denying her own recorded words (see link below), but then calling Johnson a "pervert" and child molester.

Loesch has clearly exceeded the behavioral limits that a regular CNN contributor should follow. CNN should immediately terminate its contract with Loesch, and prohibit her from appearing on its network ever again.
