I have been trying to frame my outrage at Pat McCrory's latest insult to the women of North Carolina. Then I got this email from Trish Cotham, which does a better job than I can do explaining the insanity running rampant in Raleigh:
Last week, a new law went into effect in our state that requires doctors to report women's private medical records to the government -- including ultrasound photos. And proponents of this law, including Governor McCrory, who signed it last June, will tell you that it's about keeping women safe, about helping women. Let me set the record straight: This law, along with many others like it that are designed to put up barriers around safe, legal health care procedures, is not to care for us -- it's to confine and control us.
