“If I can’t say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?”
~Rep. Lisa Brown
Basically – Republicans in the Michigan House of Representatives are trying to make all abortions over 20 weeks illegal and a “narrow exemption” for the life of the mother. Democratic Representative Lisa Brown said that as part of her religious beliefs … a woman is supposed to abort the pregnancy no matter how far along if having the child meant endangering the health of the mother. And of course – the lawmaker said vagina … and Republican instantly burst into flames out of her inappropriateness.
Detroit News has the story HERE:
House Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown from speaking on the floor Thursday after she ended a speech Wednesday against a bill restricting abortions by referencing her female anatomy.
Brown, a West Bloomfield Democrat and mother of three, said a package of abortion regulation bills would violate her Jewish religious beliefs that pregnancy be aborted to save the life of the mother.
“Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no,’” Brown said Wednesday.
The Republican majority wouldn’t allow Rep. Lisa Brown to speak on the floor today because she used the word vagina when discussing an abortion bill. You can see her press conference afterward HERE.
