A Physician's Perspective

Because I have been waiting to hear from doctors about their point of view on the issue of forcing women to get a trans-vaginal ultrasound prior to getting an abortion, I really appreciated this post.
"Our position is to recommend medically-indicated tests and treatments that have a favorable benefit-to-harm ratio... and it is up to the patient to decide what she will and will not allow. Period. Politicians do not have any role in this process. NO ONE has a role in this process but the patient and her physician. If anyone tries to get in the way of that, it is our duty to run interference."

Please go read it. Now.
