Focus on the Family Denies That Trans-Vaginal Ultrasounds Are Invasive
In an egregious example of denying scientific facts, Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link report falsely claimed that objections to Virginia’s proposed trans-vaginal ultrasound, in which a probe is inserted into the female vagina, was simply a “deceptive argument.”
Actually, the “deception” is Focus on the Family’s. Trans-vaginal ultrasounds occur when a probe is inserted into the vagina and then moved around until an ultrasound image is produced (image below). That meets any legitimate definition of “Invasive,” includes Virginia’s own rape law, which includes foreign objects.
When contacted by NewsVideoClip.TV, Focus on the Family/Citizen Link said: “We’re going to let the FNIF broadcast stand on its own with no additional comments.”
