Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett affirmed that he supports a bill that would force women to receive an ultrasound before having an abortion on the grounds that women subjected to the procedure can simply look away:
QUESTION: Making them watch…does that go too far in your mind?
CORBETT: I’m not making anybody watch, OK. Because you just have to close your eyes. As long as it’s on the exterior and not the interior.

With this reasoning, Governor Corbett should tell Rick Santorum to close his eyes and get off his jihad against pornography.
