Civil Disobedience: What if Doctors Just Say No to Ultrasounds?
Journal of Medicine -(This from a post called "Civil Disobedience" by palMD at his blog, White Coat Underground.)
"In the case of abortions, where time is essential and providers may not be easy to find, delays in care are unconscionable. To enforce a waiting period violates the doctor’s ethical duty to provide appropriate, timely care and to avoid causing the patient unnecessary grief. The law forces us to violate our ethics. To force us to perform ultrasounds, transvaginal or otherwise, is battery.
