Remember this, from last summer?
Oklahoma is the only state in the nation that mandated a physician to both conduct an ultrasound and describe the images to the patient.
“The ultrasound provision takes away a patient’s choice about whether or not to view an ultrasound, and it requires physicians to provide information to their patients that the physicians do not believe is medically necessary,” Toti said.
“It’s an affront to women’s autonomy and decision-making power, and it’s also an intrusion to the physician-patient relationship.”
“One [Oklahoma] law would require women to fill out a lengthy survey that asks, among other things, about their race, education and reason for seeking an abortion. It asks women whether they’re having relationship problems, whether they can’t afford to raise a child or whether having a baby would dramatically change their lives.
Another section requires doctors to provide detailed information about complications that arise as a result of the procedure.”
The mind reels.
