Yeah, blood vessels, nerves, the endocrine system, Fallopian tubes, the vagina, ligaments, and musculature system are all connected to the uterus.
All I meant is that the Republican legislation is technically and specifically focused on what the woman can leave or take out of her uterus. (The vagina, yes, is the highway to and from that source point.)
Yes, but "vagina" since it is connected to all of these things and the GOP wants to shove things into it via transvaginal ultrasound and the like then it wasn't like her usage of the word was coming out of nowhere, as if the vagina has absolutely nothing to do with any of the legislature that the Republican party is trying to pass. I think her statement was a bit shocking and blunt to make her point clear, sure, but the legislature is so much more shocking and disrespectful and no one has banned any of the people who have came up with that crap yet.
I'm willing to bet though if she said the same thing, but subbed in the word 'uterus' they would've found something to ban her for. Maybe we'd all be talking about how they said they would never use the term 'uterus' in mixed company.

"House Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown from speaking on the floor Thursday after she ended a speech Wednesday against a bill restricting abortions by referencing her female anatomy.
Brown, a West Bloomfield Democrat and mother of three, said a package of abortion regulation bills would violate her Jewish religious beliefs and that abortions be be allowed in cases where it is required to save the life of the mother.
"Finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no,'" Brown said Wednesday.
Brown's comment prompted a rebuke Thursday by House Republicans, who wouldn't allow her to voice her opinion on a school employee retirement bill."
That is truly appalling that the Republicans have NO idea HOW they are interferring with womens' right to decide what they want to do with their vaginas.
first off it has nothing to do with her vagina. the entire debate is over whether or not it should be legal to end the life of a fetus at the mothers disgretion.
and nobody probably wants to see that anyway.
she should sit down and stfu until shes absolutely clear and properly educated about what shes even fighting for.
retarded people on either side of a debate annoy me. why cant people argue based on intelligence anymore?

It's like a male senator blurting something about how big his dick was when talking about something in relation to men's health. It's not appropriate.
I'm with you on this.
Abortion is not about the vagina; it's about choice.
Yes, a baby passes through the vagina, dilated.
To equate abortion to the vagina doesn't even make sense.
Make a point about your Fallopian Tubes or your Uterus, not sexualize the body part and cry Republican.
Pusillanimous patronizing provincial pseudo-patriarchs need to keep hearing the word "vagina" so they are reminded of exactly where their laws are trespassing.
But it's hilarious as always to watch the ragged gaggle of conservative Usual Suspects here, cheerleading Big Government as it imposes onerous laws upon the citizenry's autonomy and then openly censors any dissent it finds distressing to its poor chaste virgin ears.
Y'all crack me up with all the calorie-free pablum that drools out of both sides of your mouths.
