I do not want to talk about this. I really don’t. It’s embarrassing, even for me.
Texas Congressvarmint (oh yes, Texas) Michael Burgess who represents Denton County north of Dallas, has very strong feelings about abortion. I do, too. My strong feelings are that Michael Burgess has no business telling me what I can and cannot do with my uterus.
Burgess has announced that he thinks legislation to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy is too liberal — he wants the line moved to 15 or 16 weeks. Do you want to know why?
“Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful. They stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to think that they could feel pain?”
This dude is an OB/GYN and he does not even know that a 15 week fetus doesn’t even have a developed central nervous system. Y’all, this guy sitting around intently watching sonograms for signs of fetal masturbation is sick. Somebody please get him a subscription to the Playboy channel before he totally creeps me out.
Okay, so it’s only male fetuses who touch their stuff? Females don’t do that? Dude, I’ve got some real bad news for you about your wife. That vibrator ain’t for her sore neck like she told you.
Now I have a question for all you parents out there. How many of your newborns had purposeful movements? Hell, mine weren’t all that bright but they zonked their baby rattles on their heads and flailed around like all get out.
No matter what this sick quack says, fetuses don’t tap dance, date their twin sister, or do algebra.
Thanks to all my outraged friends for the heads up.
