Disgusting: Penn. governor says ‘ultrasound’ bill not “obtrusive” because women can close their eyes during procedure

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) said at a press conference that a bill that would force women seeking an abortion to undergo fetal ultrasounds was not “obtrusive” because women could simply close their eyes during the procedure.

Said Corbett: “I’m not making anybody watch, OK. Because you just have to close your eyes. As long as it’s on the exterior and not the interior.”
