Joy Behar Quotes

Feb, 2012: On the VIRGINIA abortion bill, requiring a ultrasound:

“There’s a couple of bills pending in Virginia. One of them is that women will be required to undergo sonograms, ultrasound when they are about to have an abortion and the other one is that if a heartbeat isn’t detected, then they will get a trans-vaginal ultrasound which is basically going into the vagina and very intrusive….Now, there is no — as far as I can tell there is no other Procedure including MRIs and cancer treatments that are mandated. This is- would be a mandated treatment for girls who are pregnant to see the child, the infant, the fetus- (Barbara Walters corrects her to use the term fetus) -whatever at that point is before they get the abortion and if they can’t hear a heartbeat then they will have to undergo an ultrasound vaginal sonogram which I had one of those. I had one of those because I had benign tumors on my ovaries a few years ago and it was extremely intrusive and invasive.”

“It’s uncomfortable. I agree with you,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck interjected.

“It’s like, what are we? What is this, the Taliban now? What are we, in Afghanistan? Where are we exactly in this country?” Behar then asked. (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)
