Michigan: Where you can outlaw women's rights, but can't talk about the who-ha

Well to the new world of nincompooopery: Michigan Edition.  Michigan is debating (and has passed) a raft of new regulations about the ability to terminate a pregnancy.  They have passed new laws that make it almost impossible to terminate a pregnancy, and after 20 weeks - completely impossible.  Regardless of rape or health of the mother.
So, if you life is threatened by going to term, or if the fetus in fact dies by you don't have a miscarriage - have it all happen before 20 weeks.  Because after that - you are bringing it to term - regardless of the effect on your health.
Now Lisa Brown, a female law maker said "I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no."
She has since been banned from speaking because she used the word "vagina".  The legislature could not propose a word for female naughty bits they would find acceptable.  In fact, one man - so concerned for women that he knows silly girls can't make their own decisions, said:
"What she said was offensive," Republican Rep. Mike Callton told The Detroit News. "It was so offensive, I don't even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company."
Another female legislator also offended the male lawmakers ears by using the word vasectomy.  She too was banned from speaking further on the bill.
These women were not banned from saying only those bad words - but from speaking on the bill AT ALL.  Because, silly woman can reasonably speak about women's health care needs.

This is one of the biggest nincompoopery stories EVER. Yes, I said E V E R! (with big capital letters and spaces inbetween for added emphasis)

The dudes in the MI legislature should be hauled out of the State House by their man titties and strung up in the public square by their testicles for their ridiculousness. W T F? (again with the caps and spaces).

Oye Vey!
