Ultrasound Bill stops sex for Va. delegate David Albo
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia lawmaker has learned firsthand that legislation requiring an invasive form of ultrasound for women seeking abortions can kill an intimate moment.
In a tongue-in-cheek Friday floor speech replete with a sultry soundtrack played for his fellow lawmakers, Delegate David Albo said he had set the mood Tuesday with his wife, Rita, in their Fairfax County home. Son Ben was asleep, red wine was served, he had eased his arm around her and pulled her close.
Then he made the mistake of flipping channels, finding a news segment about the "transvaginal ultrasound" debate in Richmond. He said, "It was ... 'trans-v this,' and 'trans-v that' and 'they hate women.'"
The mood and the moment gone, he said, "she looks at me and goes, 'I've got to go to bed.'"
