Washington, D.C. may soon institute a 24-hour waiting period before a tattoo or piercing can be done. But local officials have no interest in a waiting period before an abortion – as the District of Columbia remains one of the most ardently pro-abortion places in the country.
From a TownHall report:
Najma Roberts, a spokeswoman for the Health Department, said that the waiting period for a tattoo or piercing was necessary so people do not get inked or pierced with something they may regret:
“We’re making sure when that decision is made that you’re in the right frame of mind, and you don’t wake up in the morning…saying, ‘Oh my God, what happened?’?”
