UPDATE! One Tough Nerd and Jase “I Didn’t Try to Rig An Election With Roy Schmidt” Bolger have stepped up and given the smackdown to Rep. Joel Johnson’s nutty idea. What next, respect for public schools?
Two weeks ago, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal told the GOP they need to “stop being the stupid party.” Seems they didn’t get the message here in Michissippi, where state Rep. Joel Johnson introduced a bill requiring women to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion.
Perhaps the MI GOP should listen to Gov. Jindal, and the fine folks in Virginia and Alabama:
Similar measures were introduced last year in Virginia and Alabama, but Republicans backed off after ferocious pushback from women’s advocates and reproductive rights groups, which described it as overly invasive and likened it to rape.
