Jim DeMint on Forced Ultrasounds — #SameOldParty

Today on Meet the Press, Jim DeMint reiterated his support for forced, medically unnecessary ultrasounds for women seeking abortions calling them an “opportunity” that women want. His comments follow a week where protests erupted in Texas as Republicans tried to trample on women’s rights and two weeks after Congressional Republicans passed legislation to further restrict women’s health decisions. 

Women made clear how they felt about Republicans’ extreme agenda on women’s health in the 2012 election, yet the GOP continues to fight for policies that prevent personal medical decisions from remaining between a woman and her doctor. Despite empty promises to reach out to women, it’s clear the GOP is sticking with the same failed policy proposals of the past.
