This is government injecting itself into a highly personal medical decision. It is a violation of women’s rights. And it is clearly both hostile and demeaning to women (who aren’t trusted to make decisions themselves).

Where, I wonder, is the law forcing men who want a vasectomy to get counseling from people who oppose that procedure?

Where is the law banning the sale of condoms to men until they wait 3 days and get counseling from religious orders that oppose contraception?
