Women in Wisconsin Judged Too Stupid To Know What is Good For Their Health

So Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the Legislature Will Decide For Them

Wisconsin has now joined the states that will require women seeking a legal abortion to have an ultrasound. 

 Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has signed a contentious Republican bill that would require women seeking an abortion to view an ultrasound of the fetus before the procedure and prohibit doctors from performing abortions unless they have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
The Republican-controlled Legislature passed the bill last month. It would require abortion providers to point out a fetus' features on the ultrasound and have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles to perform the procedure.

See Republicans have concluded that they know best, not the doctors, not the patients, but a bunch of legislators and politicians whose only medical training is putting a bandage on a scrapped knee.

So what ever happened to conservative beliefs that government should not interfere in the private lives of citizens, and should not control health care?  Oh, it fell to a hypocrisy virus, and maybe every state legislator and governor who supports this unwanted intrusion of the state into very personal and very private health care matters should be forced to have an ultrasound to see if there is a way to cure them of the horrific disease of hypocrisy.
