Doctor’s response to State Control of women’s bodies: its our duty to run interference.

The attempt to reverse the gains in women’s reproductive rights in the US has taken a turn for the worse this election season. One doctor makes an impassioned and scathing rejection of the transvaginal ultrasound legislation making its way through various state legislatures.

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.
