Member's Letter to Rep. Severson

Dear Dr. Severson,

I understand that the Transvaginal Ultrasound Bill passed the senate and is headed for the Assembly today.  Please vote against this bill.  As a medical doctor  you are aware of the implications to  physician/patient confidentiality which is essential to patients  seeking medical care.  That the state of Wisconsin would force its way into an examination room for any reason is big government  tyranny at its worst.  

This bill could have serious unintended consequences.   Can you imagine a frightened pregnant teenage girl coming to you knowing that she will have to undergo an unnecessary invasive vaginal probe? I can't.  I can imagine her going into denial and getting no medical care or worse doing a DIY abortion, or going to the illegal abortion provider.  

If the republicans want to make abortion illegal, then  draft a bill that does that and debate it on its merits.  Just don't make the State of Wisconsin a rapist and torturer of women!
