A Florida college that allegedly forced students to perform vaginal ultrasounds on each other as part of a medical training program has permanently banned the practice.I don't see what all the fuss is about. Turns out transvaginal probes are "just a cool thing for women"! I imagine they can be very cool, even quite cold in Wisconsin. You first governor!
Valencia State College's president announced Tuesday the school's medical diagnostic sonography program would "permanently discontinue the use of student volunteers for transvaginal ultrasound scanning." The move comes after two students filed a federal lawsuit claiming college administrators threatened to lower their grades and blacklist them in the medical community if they didn't consent to the exams.
"Following a comprehensive external investigation and a thorough internal review, we identified teaching methods that employ sophisticated simulators and have decided to permanently discontinue the use of student volunteers for transvaginal ultrasound scanning," President Sandy Shugart said in a statement.
The lawsuit, filed by two students who were enrolled in 2013 in the competitive sonography program, claimed that during orientation, a second-year student nicknamed the "TransVag Queen" explained they should undergo transvaginal ultrasound procedures to become better technicians.
We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea. Most people I talk to, whether they're pro-life or not, I find people all the time who'll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids' ultrasound and how excited they are, so that's a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It's just a cool thing out there.Why is it conservatives are always up in your private parts?
LLAP readers, happy weekend!
