Not Cease from Exploration...a blog by Steve Albert

So let me get this straight: some believe that it is illegal and immoral to force you to buy health insurance, but it is perfectly okay for you to be forced to have an invasive medical procedure.

Yes, some claim that  "Obamacare" is illegal and immoral because it is a massive grab of power by the government.  Yet some who make that same proclamation apparently have no problem with women being forced to have a probe stuck up their genitalia.

Come on conservatives, does "big government" get any bigger and invasive than this?  Invading your bedroom?  Hell, this takes it one step beyond even that...

What if there was a law  that required men to to get digital rectal exams before they got a vasectomy?  How many men would vote for that one?  Better yet, what if most of the people voting for it were women?

I have a better idea: Social Conservatives can continue to proclaim that abortion is immoral.  They can continue to educate the population on their point of view.  They can put up billboards and buy TV/radio time. But they shouldn't force women to get probes stuck up in their nether-regions.

Sounds reasonable to me.
