Guess what word gets you banned from participating in a debate on an abortion bill in Michigan. Vagina. Yep, you aren’t allowed to mention vaginas when opposing an abortion bill.
State Reps. Lisa Brown, D-West Bloomfield, and Barb Byrum, D-Onondaga, were told today that they wouldn’t be recognized to publicly speak on any matters before the House because of comments they made Wednesday during an emotional debate on a bill that puts new restrictions on abortion providers. Brown, who voted against the legislation, told supporters of the bill, “I’m flattered you’re all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no.”
Freedom of Speech is great, huh.
