Michigan Lawmaker Requires Women to Withstand the Test of Fire Before Getting an Abortion
Posted by Raznor

State Rep. Dave Robertson, R-Grand Blanc Township, introduced the bill. He has said he hopes giving women the option to provide entertainment to abortion providers before getting an abortion, that is should they survive.

Robertson said the bill is a logical extension of Michigan's jumpin' through hoops law, which requires women to perform acrobatic stunts while singing the Star Spangled Banner.

"Women will be given the opportunity to be amply punished for being the sluts they are, that they may truly make an informed choice," Robertson in a news release.

Okay, this isn't exactly what happened, check the story here, via Amanda. The real story is that Robertson wants to force women to get ultrasounds in order to get abortions. Essentially making getting an abortion harder and more expensive. This is based on the Informed Consent Law, which requires a 24 hour waiting period before getting an abortion, you know, since so many women are just out there getting tons of abortions all willy-nilly like, apparently.
