Yesterday, Tom Corbett backed a controversial bill that will force women who seek abortions to receive ultrasounds. If women do not want the procedure, Gov. Corbett has a helpful suggestion,"you just have to close your eyes."
Corbett says he supports 'external' ultrasounds for abortion patients (Philadelphia Inquirer) Gov. Corbett says he supports mandatory ultrasounds for abortion patients, the subject of one of the most controversial pieces of legislation before the General Assembly. Corbett said Tuesday he would support a bill that would force doctors to show women an ultrasound before an abortion is performed as long as it was not "obtrusive." When asked what he meant by that, Corbett said: "As long as it's on the exterior and not the interior."
