The ongoing chant of American conservatives is fear of “big government” intruding into the lives of the average citizen. They rant and shout about ‘the government” and demand an end to bureaucrats being able to make decisions concerning the lives of citizens. Apparently, the legislature of Oklahoma, which has a solid conservative majority, does not believe their own words. The state legislature passed a law requiring women seeking an abortion to undergo an intrusive ultrasound and listen to a detailed description of the foetus before getting an abortion. Governor Brad Henry, who opposes abortions, vetoed the bill on grounds it does not allow exemptions for rape and incest victims. Conservatives have promised they will override the veto and make their state the proud title of having the strictest anti-abortion laws.
We propose that anyone voting for such a law have something shoved up their rectum and be compelled to listen to a detailed explanation of the Constitution of the United States of America.
