Oh the tolerant left.
On Friday, after Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) signed a new bill requiring women to have an ultrasound before getting an abortion, Sarah Silverman tweeted, "I'd very much like to anally probe @govwalker each time he needs to make an 'informed decision'":

The embedded link went to the following CNN.com article:
Wisconsin became the latest state Friday to legislate tighter abortion laws after Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed a controversial bill that requires women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion.
"This bill improves a woman's ability to make an informed choice that will protect her physical and mental health now and in the future," the governor's office said in a statement.
The law requires medical providers to display the ultrasound images “so that the pregnant woman may view them” before she undergoes a procedure. She must be given a medical description of the images, as well as the dimensions of the fetus and a description of external features or internal organs that are present. The woman also must be provided a means to see any heartbeat, according to the law.
Silverman either has terrible reading comprehension skills are didn't make it down to the paragraph totally discrediting her position:
According to the law, the ultrasound provision lets women choose between transvaginal and abdominal ultrasounds.
As such, women have a choice.
I thought that's what liberals want.
Apparently not Silverman.
