Anyway, thanks to republican Congressman, Michael Burgess, of Texas, we are starting to learn where this love of......self comes from.
"The House's proposed ban on late-term abortions is justified because fetuses masturbate as early as 15 weeks, proving they experience physical feeling, according to a member of the GOP Doctors Caucus.
Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas), a former OB/GYN, suggested Monday that he has witnessed "movements that are purposeful" in fetuses entering the second trimester.
'Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby," Burgess said. "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 believe that they could feel pain?'” [Source]
This explains a lot. So it seems that we have been at this masturbating thing for a very long time.
Thank you Mr. Burgess for that brilliant insightful revelation. I guess you politicians are good for something after all.
I don't know how this war on the female body started again, but at least this time around we are learning something.
Finally, I would like to thank Elijah Cummings for doing what he threatened to do and release the full transcript of the interview with a key IRS employee.
As we expected all along, there was no smoking gun. I suspect that this is why Mr. Issa did not want this transcript released: He wanted to keep the illusion of an IRS scandal going.
