Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) said Monday that abortion should be banned as early as 15 weeks after conception because he has witnessed male fetuses masturbate at that stage.
RH Reality Check first reported Burgess’ comments, which came during a late-night House Rules Committee hearing on a GOP bill that would ban abortions starting at 20 weeks after conception.
“This is a subject (maturbation) that I do know something about,” said Burgess, . . .
here’s my ‘thought for the day’:
Sometimes it’s nice to have something to hold on to.
It’s as simple as that.

Forty men and one woman face a slew of charges following a major Florida operation targeting people who use the Internet to arrange sexual encounters with children.
Some of the suspects, who range in age from 18 to 65, traveled from as far as Wisconsin and Alabama to meet minors for expected sexual encounters. Just 13 were from Polk County, where the operation was executed between June 8 and June 15.
According to the statement from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office:
‘An electrician; a student; an insurance salesman; a bank teller; a handyman; an AV technician; a file clerk; a painter; mechanics; theme park employees; two State Senators; a law enforcement academy graduate; an IT phone technician; laborers; a youth football coach; a photo lab technician, a heavy machine operator; a tax preparer; a hospital accountant; a wall-paper installer and a senior partner in a CPA firm; all wanted to have sex with a child – all were arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail.’

“I’m proud we are standing up for religious freedom,” Ayatollah Khomieni (see photo) said.
“Freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom FROM religion.”
It wasn’t the Ayatollah who said we have NO FREEDOM from RELIGION; it was the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry.
Hey, it was an honest mistake.
The Arizona Senate passed legislation Thursday to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act after fierce pressure tactics by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer against her own party.
The Arizona House passed the budget measure with the Medicaid expansion earlier Thursday. The bill now goes to the desk of Brewer, who has championed it.
It’s expected to cover 300,000 new Arizonans and funded predominantly by the federal government.
“I am grateful to the Arizona lawmakers who have acted with courage and conviction by completing the people’s business,” Brewer said in a statement. “But I also know this in my heart: The great majority of Arizonans stand with us. Our citizens have — time and again — voted to extend cost-effective care to the working poor.”
Republicans initially rejected the expansion. But they let it come up after Brewer made good on threats to veto all bills until the GOP-led legislature adopted the Obamacare-based expansion. She even threatened to oust Republican leaders if they blocked the measure.
The favorable votes in the legislature came from Democrats and a coalition of moderate Republicans, according to the Associated Press.
Conservatives vigorously oppose the expansion, seeing as an endorsement of Obamacare.

Massachusetts Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez (R) criticized Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) for his remarks on rape and pregnancy, calling the congressman a “moron” for claiming that “the incidence of rape resulting in pregancy are very low.”
“I think that he’s a MORON and he proves that stupid has no specific political affiliation,” Gomez told ABC News on Wednesday. “I have no idea what goes into the mind of a MORON like that … These kinds of comments only come from a moron and they shouldn’t be tolerated one bit.”
I predict, SOMEDAY, when Senator Gomez runs for the GOP presidential nomination, he will mumble, “I was misquoted’.

During a House Judiciary hearing on his abortion bill Wednesday, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said that he opposes an exemption for rape victims because “the incidence of rape resulting in pregancy are very low.”
The Arizona Republican’s comments echo those made last year by former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), who notoriously claimed that women cannot become pregnant from “legitimate rape.”
Like Akin’s, Franks’s claim is not supported by research. Medical experts agree that rape does not lower the incidence of pregnancy, and one study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that . . .
MORE THAN 30,000 pregnancies result from rape in the United States each year.

“In World War II, the mentality of the public was that our whole way of life was at risk, we’re all in. We censored the mail. When you wrote a letter overseas, it got censored. When a letter was written back from the battlefield to home, they looked at what was in the letter to make sure they were not tipping off the enemy,” Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill. “If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don’t think it is.”
What is especially galling to me is that Miss Lindsey allegedly went to law school, where he SHOULD have learned about this little thing called the Constitution. And yeah, as a member (and I use that term for its alternate definition) of the United States Congress, he took an oath to uphold this little thing called the Constitution.
as his savior and lord Jesus Christ George W. Bush, once said:
“The Constitution is just a piece of paper.” “If you don’t have anything to hide…”
