War on Women Reaches New Low

A Democratic Senate candidate in North Carolina took the war on women to a new low after appearing in a recent political ad where she waves a transvaginal ultrasound wand to make her point that Republicans are insensitive to women.

CNSNews.com is reporting that the tasteless ad was made by Deb Butler, the Democratic candidate for the North Carolina Senate who says the time has come to have a "candid conversation about her Republican opponent's alleged insensitivity to women.
“I’m Deb Butler and I think we need to have a candid conversation about what Thom Goolsby’s policies actually mean to North Carolina women,” the Democrat says in the ad.

“He wouldn’t dare show you this,” she says, while waving the wand at the audience. “But this is Goolsby’s contribution to women’s health, a medically unnecessary, invasive procedure that is now required by state law. He promised us that his first priority would be jobs, but instead he’s following you into the doctor’s office.”

Butler is referring to the Woman's Right to Know Act of 2011 that requires a woman seeking an abortion to see a "real time view" of her unborn child, something the wand could be used for. The law also requires doctors to tell women the probable gestational age of their unborn child at the time the abortion is planned, as well as the medical risks of both having an abortion and carrying the child to term.

A pro-life legislature passed the law in 2011 after overriding a veto by pro-abortion Democratic governor Beverly Purdue.
