The thing Republicans hate most about government, is the size of it. Like they often say every chance they get, their main goal is to “get government out of our lives,” and to “reduce the size of government” blah blah blah!
Here’s another example of Republicans getting government “out of our lives.”
Beginning on January 1st, the government of North Carolina, which, as it turns out happens to be the “small government” people of the Republican party, implemented a law demanding that doctors send them – the government – an ultrasound of all aborted fetuses they perform for women over 16 weeks of pregnancy.
The new law also requires that doctors state how they determined “probable gestational age” of the fetus and provide their measurements to support their claim, notes The New York Times. The state does not allow abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of medical emergencies.
“It should also act as a deterrent to the doctors themselves from lying about gestational age,” Tami L. Fitzgerald, the executive director of the North Carolina Values Coalition, told the newspaper.
“The state has made a public policy decision that babies after 20 weeks have a right to live,” Fitzgerald added. “So this law is about protecting the rights of those unborn babies.”
