GOP-Controlled Missouri Forcing Women To Have Unnecessary Pelvic Exams Before Having Abortions

The Republican-controlled Missouri state government is forcing women, who want to have a legal abortion, to undergo an invasive and unnecessary pelvic exam first.

Dr. Colleen McNicholas, head of St. Louis Planned Parenthood Reproductive Health Services, told “The Rachel Maddow Show” how the unnecessary exams constitute sexual abuse:

We either have to ask patients to subject themselves to a state sanctioned, essentially, sexual assault or they can’t have an abortion here in Missouri.
