  •  here's some unbelievable fine print (9+ / 0-)

    on Indiana's proposed 2 vaginal probe legislation.

    'Instead, focus for now on Senate Bill 489, which also cleared the same Indiana Senate committee on Wednesday. Among its provisions: Clinics would need to provide consent forms - ones that are already required - in color. "Why color?" Sen. Mike Young, the bill's sponsor, was asked. According to an account from Indianapolis Star reporter Mary Beth Schneider, Young said that color would be more realistic.

    The fine for using plain, black and white - less realistic, apparently - documents: $10,000.

    All of this from legislators who campaigned on less red tape.

    Now that you've set all of that aside, ask this: Is this legislature really up for this debate? Or is it just more chipping away at women's health care while dancing around the bigger issues?

    Paperwork in color. Wow.'


    I prefer pie on a plate, sometimes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
