Republicans want mass violations of basic dignity to be federal law:

Sen. Lindsey Graham’s national 15-week abortion ban would likely force many women to undergo invasive transvaginal ultrasounds before terminating pregnancies, according to doctors.

Under the bill, which Graham introduced last week, physicians could be prosecuted for terminating pregnancies after 15 weeks, except in a handful of scenarios: to save the life of the mother or in cases where the pregnant woman or girl has previously reported that the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest.

Doctors would be on the hook to ask each patient about the timing of her pregnancy “and perform or cause to perform such medical examinations and tests” as needed to “make an accurate determination of gestational age.”

Of course, to the kind of sickos who want a national abortion ban this is a feature, not a bug.
