Days after Democrat Lisa Brown attempted to shock the Michigan legislature by lecturing the House Speaker on the floor about her genitals, Democrats launched their “Say Vagina” campaign. (It was quickly hijacked.) Brown became emotional during an abortion debate over a proposal that required greater regulations on abortion providers and banned abortions after 20 weeks. She equated the proposed law to rape by saying: “And finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’”
No, Ms. Loesch, it’s YOU that’s obfuscating the truth on this story, not the Democrats or Brown.
A male Republican House leader in Michigan silenced two female Democratic state legislators on Thursday after the pair tried to advance a measure that would have reduced access to vasectomies.
While discussing a bill that would erode the availability of abortion, Reps. Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown introduced an amendment to apply the same regulations to vasectomies that GOP lawmakers wanted to add to abortion services. The debate grew heated, as Republicans sought to gravel down the women. Byrum was not permitted to speak in favor of the measure and Brown was repeatedly interrupted. “I’m flattered that you want to get in my vagina, but no means no,” she said. The next day both were silenced.
