Virginia’s new invasive law, which requires women to have an ultrasound and wait 24 hours before having an abortion went into effect on Monday. Along with the Republican-supported measure designed to deter women from having abortion procedures, Virginia has released a list of places a woman can go to get a free ultrasound, and the list is made up entirely of anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers. In fact, two of the centers listed are not even health clinics. Idaho put out a similar list before legislators tabled the ultrasound bill being considered in that state.
