VAGINA. [Warning: Content Censored in Michigan.]

| | Comments (31) | TrackBacks (0)

Fresh from the department of "you can't make this stuff up":

Last week, anti-choice legislators in the Michigan House passed a bill that puts a whole bunch of new restrictions on a woman's right to safe, legal abortion care.

Pro-choice Rep. Lisa Brown spoke out against the bill, but was gaveled "out of order" for saying "vagina." The anti-choice leadership then banned her from speaking for the rest of the week.

It seems that, while the Michigan House can restrict women's reproductive-health care, uttering the word "vagina" is cause for punishment.

So allow me to share a few words with our readers in Michigan: vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina.

Our friends at NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin saw the connection between what's going on in the Michigan House and what goes on at the ballot box:

And, as luck would have it, Mitt Romney is visiting Michigan today. (It's his home state, and his father was once the governor there.) He's stopping by the Sweetie-licious Bakery for some delicious confections.

Does Gov. Romney agree with the anti-choice Michigan House leadership? Does he think women lawmakers should be silenced for saying "vagina"?

Well, let's ask him.
