Under the new legislation, women who want an abortion will be forcibly penetrated for no medical reason. This is nothing short of preposterous! Please read http://slate.me/zIFeIz

Even if I don't like abortion, I fully respect the woman's right to choose -- to forcibly penetrate a woman because of their choice should spark outrage! Please tell them to strike down this law!

      I'm signing because I don't want any one dictating to me what to do with my body. To each it's own. These people sitting on capital hill passing these bill do not have any business interferring with women rights. I hope the women turn out when it's time to vote.

      This is wrong and immoral. it is NOT the government's responsibility to effect their religious ideals into law. This law is purely punitive, and designed to obstruct and shame the woman getting an abortion. The idea that they believe it's okay to force an unnecessary medical procedure ... astounding! Law is not meant to embarrass, or to shame, or to obstruct. There is no legal or medical basis for it, and fact is, it's the doctor's responsibility to make decisions on whether a procedure is necessary. Not governments! It's pathetic and shameful that this has come to pass and I REALLY hope women remember how the GOP is attacking their rights, not just in VA, but all across the country. 1100 new laws limiting or restricting women's access to health care. Astounding!

      Even though the requirement is not including trans vaginals anymore the government should not be interjecting themselves between a doctor and patient.

      this could prevent some women from getting medically necessary abortions. It infringes on Women's rights. This should be only between a woman and her doctor and NOT involve the government.

      This is rape by mechanical device, approved by government.
