War on Women: Arizona Hatred Legislator Wants to Throw out Patient Confidentiality

Terri Proud

Sure, let's savage doctor-patient confidentiality for our anti-woman politics!

Note this article in the Huffington Post:

Abortion Bill: Arizona GOP Legislator Says Women Should Witness Abortions

It reports that in an email from right-wing Arizona Republican Terri Proud, she says this:

“Personally I’d like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a “surgical procedure”. If it’s not a life it shouldn’t matter, if it doesn’t harm a woman then she shouldn’t care, and don’t we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway? We demand it everywhere else.

No, chickie, we do not “demand it everywhere else.” Everywhere else, we respect a patient’s right to privacy and confidentiality.

But these right-wingnut clowns, as was evidenced in my previous post, are eager to throw out and literally savage the medical profession and all doctors. And now, clearly, they want to invade the bastion of privacy between patients and doctors — all to attack women and make political points.

And you know why Ms. Proud (a woman! shame on her!) likes this idea. If such a bill were to pass, they’d get to punish and humiliate TWO independent woman at once! They would try to shame and inflict mental torment on the woman who wants an abortion, and inflict utter humiliation and public display on the woman already having one. Bonus!

There is no end to the right-wing hatred of women. And to see a woman helping these idiot men attack other women is the real shame.

Shame on you, Terri Proud!
