The Gadfly, until today, had been fairly certain that he had pretty much heard the gamut of asinine stupidity which incessantly emanates from the mouths of right wing conservatives. But even The Gadfly had to do a Scooby Doo double-take at this one:
As the House of Representatives prepares on Tuesday to consider huge legislative restrictions on a woman’s right to choose, one GOP congressman is using the idea that fetuses can masturbate to argue for more abortion restrictions.
On Monday evening, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), an Ob/Gyn by trade, told his colleagues to, “Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful,” as RH Reality Check reports:
Oh yeah . . . . because if there is any one good reason to drastically restrict a woman's access to abortion services, it's because we would be disturbing little junior Zygote, who is in full embryonic bliss mode in mommy's womb, frenziedly spanking away on his wee little blastocyst monkey -- or as known by it's latin origin embryonus spankus simianus interruptus.
The Gadfly is wholly convinced that the Texas delegation of politicos has got to be the one single clown show that would give Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus a serious run for their clown money.
Jeebus kripes almighty.
