I have to hand it to Deb Butler (@Deb_Butler), who is running to unseat Republican Thom Goolsby in NC Senate District 9 (Wilmington) — she pulls no punches in her new ad. How many candidates would run this shot?:

“I’m Deb Butler and I think we need to have a candid conversation about what Thom Goolsby’s policies actually mean to North Carolina women. He wouldn’t dare show you this, but this is Goolsby’s contribution to women’s health. A medically unnecessary and invasive procedure that is now required by state law.”

It’s time that these womb-controllers face exactly what their intentions are for women — would these men like their health and reproductive freedom determined by a state-mandated probe in their nether regions? Goolsby has decided that for women in NC.

Butler, an out lesbian, is endorsed by the Victory Fund. On her web site, Butler says exactly what this is about — perverting the doctor-patient relationship, and in this economy, does nothing to bring jobs to this state:

Injected itself right into the middle of the most sacred of relationships..the DOCTOR/PATIENT relationship by compelling a woman to undergo a medically invasive ultrasound procedure before seeking medical care that is allowed by law. This DOES NOT create jobs or promote economic development. How is the implementation of this new regulation to be paid for? This doesn’t feel like less government to me.
