When is waterboarding OK?

Now Virginia Republicans want to force women seeking an abortion to pay for and submit to a test that their doctor says is unnecessary. Abortion opponents seem to believe that ANYTHING they can do to make abortion more of an ordeal is OK, because they see themselves as being on the high ground, morally.

Let’s say a prominent Republican spokesperson asserts that women who want to terminate a pregnancy should be forced to go through an ordeal before the abortion procedure that will allow them to empathize with the fetus. Furthermore, let’s say that anti-abortion spokesperson claims waterboarding would be the best way to achieve that end.

How many of the Republicans in today's General Assembly would be willing to go on record that such women should NOT be waterboarded?
