Virginia's Ultrasound Bill Is Not Tantamount To Rape

The pro-abortion Left is throwing a fit over Virginia's ultrasound law. The reason is that they are claiming that the law is akin to rape, yes, the rape card has been thrown down on this. Here is the picture most Liberal blogs are using to illustrate their claim.

Doubt it? Check Think Progress, Feministing, and Little Green Footballs for evidence. I see nothing in the bill that mandates that exact type of ultrasound be done.
Requires that, as a component of informed consent to an abortion, to determine gestation age, every pregnant female shall undergo ultrasound imaging and be given an opportunity to view the ultrasound image of her fetus prior to the abortion...
Tina Korbe also does a good job addressing the "rape" objection to this bill.

The real question is really about the Left's fear of the image the woman might see. Here is an example.

Is the Left so afraid of a little image that they want women to continue to act out of ignorance about what they are doing? Is not a necessary aspect of making a choice is to ensure that such a choice is a fully informed one? I think we all know the answer to that.
