Another Republican Fumbles Abortion Question

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) is a hardlined anti-choice with no exceptions radical whose state is currently trying to pass a transvaginal ultrasound law. When asked about the law, Duffy pretended to not know what a transvaginal ultrasounds is.

Questioner: “I’m wondering about whether or not Rep. Duffy if you would support the legislation that’s in the Wisconsin legislature called ‘Right To Know Your Unborn Child’. And if, because you’ve said in the past that you are 100% pro-life, would you support federal legislation to require trans-vaginal ultrasounds for pregnant women? And if not, then why?

Duffy: “I don’t know what a trans-vaginal ultrasound is?”

Questioner: “You don’t?”

Duffy: “No … I haven’t had one.”

[Laughter from the room]

Questioner: “It’s been in the news …”


Questioner: Right now it’s being discussed on the Wisconsin level, I realize you’re not involved in that but is this something that you would support on the federal level?

Duffy: I haven’t heard of it. And just like I told you I’m pro life, and I know that you are too, but I’m not willing to say I’ll support what you’re talking about because I haven’t seen the bill, even though we’re probably in agreement on that issue.

Questioner: So you don’t know what it is?>

Duffy: No.

Questioner: Oh, OK, thank you.

Evidently Duffy’s congressional office is under a rock.
