After Virginia’s invasive anti-abortion bill, a flow-chart

Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia has withdrawn his support from the extremely invasive version of a Virginia bill that would require women seeking abortions to get trans-vaginal ultrasound probes (just typing this sentence has caused me to lose my lunch.) But who on Earth thought this was a good idea in the first place?

Generally, people are more confused than malicious, so I made a handy flow chart. Before you go ahead with your invasive bill, requiring women to leap through hoops of fire with legs of mutton in their mouths before receiving legal medical care or insisting that if ever you shake a man’s hand, you are contractually obligated to bear his child, make certain the bill makes it all the way through this chart!

Made lovingly in MS Paint (Please someone teach me how to use Photoshop; I’m trapped in MS Paint)

I hope this was helpful.
