Vagina is a dirty word in Michigan

yes, Virginia there is a vagina or two in Michigan but it seems that there are also TEN YEAR OLD BOYS in charge who are having a War on Women and want to control women.

MI Superbill destroys families, kills women, takes away rights and essential health care, for women like this mother who was NOT allowed to speak

Michigan State Representatives Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield) and Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga) were banned from speaking on the House floor yesterday by Majority Floor Leader, Jim Stamas (R- Midland), after only Brown was permitted to speak to the Michigan House Of Representatives against a bill that puts new restrictions on abortion providers.  Byrum wanted to speak but was not given the opportunity.

Brown dared to utter the word Vagina in the hallowed halls… GASP…

On the issue of late term abortions, Brown argues that her faith has a different set of rules than Christianity.

Wherever there is a question of the life of the mother or that of the unborn child, Jewish law rules in favor of preserving the life of the mother. The status of the fetus of human life does not equal that of the mother.

I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours?

And finally,  Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.”

Brown and Byrun just issued this press release that reads in part:

Both Representative Byrum and I were gaveled down without cause yesterday while voicing our opposition to the Republican’s war on women here in Michigan, “said Rep. Brown. “Regardless of their reasoning, this is a violation of my First Amendment rights and directly impedes my ability to serve the people who elected me into office. I was either banned for being Jewish and rightfully pointing out that House Bill 5711 was forcing contradictory religious beliefs upon me and any other religion. Or it is because I said the word ‘vagina’ which is an anatomically, medically correct term. If they are going to legislate my anatomy, I see no reason why I cannot mention it.”

If they think controlling women’s reproductive health and putting women’s lives at stake is a good plan (sounds like the Taliban at work in America), women voters are having none of it. Protests are happening. People are sending the offenders uteruses. There is even a Vagina song and more.
