Coercing women to submit to a medically unnecessary trans-vaginal ultrasound is involuntary vaginal penetration which is the definition of rape.
Jim Demint claims that a law requiring all women to submit to a medically unnecessary Trans-vaginal ultrasound is giving women what they want. Doctors would then be required by law to rape their patients.
Jim Demit ignores that if a women does not want it, it is rape when he says “She’s forgetting about the thousands of women who want an informed choice, who want the opportunity to get a free ultrasound, which they can get not from Planned Parenthood but from a lot of these pregnancy centers.”
“Informed choice” to Demint differs medical doctors. If a qualified doctor’s opinion is that a test is medically unnecessary to make an informed choice, tests are denied patients by health insurance or at public cost because they are unnecessary.
This is very prejudicial to the poor in that private doctors, at patients cost, are far more likely to give a patient any test requested.
Jim Demint’s opinion is what is unnecessary. Government invasion of a private medical decision is unnecessary, and under the “right to be secure in your person”, the 14th amendment is grossly violated.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
