A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – ‘Michigan State Rep Barred From Speaking After ‘Vagina’ Comments’

‘Free’ speech?

Legislation without representation?

Oh and it’s NOT a ‘War On Women’?

‘During a heated debate on the floor of the Michigan state House, Rep. Lisa Brown made an impassioned speech against a bill that seeks to put new regulations on abortion providers and ban all abortions after 20 weeks’.

‘Brown, a Democrat, argued that her Jewish faith allowed for therapeutic abortions when the mother’s life is in danger without regard to length of pregnancy’.

“I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours?” she said. But what came next is what got her in trouble: “And finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.'”

The Republican leadership response :

“‘What she said was offensive,” said Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville. ‘It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.’

“Majority Floor Leader Jim Stamas, R-Midland, determined Brown’s comments violated the decorum of the House, said Ari Adler, spokesman for the Republican majority.”

  1. I thought that was the medical term, now had she woo-who or my susie or that C word, now would have been offensive.

  2. I think Rep Carlton’s words “I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.” means that he has no problem saying that word word a lot in all-male company.
