Government sanctioned rape.

**trigger warnings**

Oh, you live in Wisconsin and want a legal medical procedure?  Not before we get to stick a bunch of stuff inside you that has absolutely zero relevance to that procedure.

At the Wisconsin Right to Life Legislative Conference this week, the state’s top Republican lawmakers assured attendees that they will do everything in their power to enact a forced ultrasound bill, which would mandate an invasive transvaginal probe for some women seeking first-trimester abortions. “This bill is a priority,” Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R) said. “It is long overdue.”

Party of small government, which despises the wastefulness of other parties, making a useless procedure mandatory.  Oh, do you want the government that is mandating this needless, invasive procedure to pay for it?  No, that’s Obamacare and the GOP hates that.

They complain during the elections about the economy crumbling and talk about how they can fix it.  But when it comes to which laws the GOP is working on most feverishly, this is their stated priority.

Exceptions for rape?  No, if you want an abortion in Wisconsin you have to get raped first.
