GOP Congressman Votes For Abortion Bill Because Males Masturbate at 15 Weeks?!

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Tex.) against abortion after 15 weeks because he's seen male fetuses masturbate.
Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Tex.) is against abortion after 15 weeks because he’s seen male fetuses masturbate.

The abortion debate has been going on for over 50 years and we have YET to see an argument against it, so ludicrous!

During a late-night House Rules Committee hearing on Monday, on a Republican bill “The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” that would ban abortions starting at 20 weeks after conception with no exceptions for rape or incest, GOP Congressman Michael Burgess (R-Tex.), claimed abortions should be banned as early as 15 weeks because he’s seen male fetuses masturbate that early, according to the Huffington Post report from RH Reality Check.  WHAT?!

Now maybe Burgess was under the influence or sleepy, but he stands by his assertion that the male fetuses put their “hands between their legs” at 15 weeks and pleasure themselves.

“Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful,” Burgess continued. “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 think that they could feel pain?”

According to Burgess, he has license to say these things and can validate them because he used to be an OB/GYN.  He isn’t the only backward Republican, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), the bill’s author, opposed an exception for rape victims because his claim is that “the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low.”  But luckily, some members, no one knows who specifically, of the House Rules Committee later added exceptions to the bill for rape and incest victims and the extreme anti-abortion rule passed in the House 228-196 on Tuesday.

  1. What do you mean that you’ve never heard an argument against it? An unborn baby’s heart begins beating 18 days after conception. By eight weeks, all of the bodily organs we will ever have are present and in place. And although Roe allows abortion through 24 weeks gestation, some babies are born as early as 21 weeks and survive.

    And then, of course, is the fact that abortion affects black folks so disproportionately. In 2004, for every two black babies born, one black baby was aborted. The data is there for anyone to look up at from (“abortion surveillance”).

    I don’t like the strange ways some pro-life politicians have expressed their positions lately but that does not change the fact that abortion stops beating human hearts.

  2. Black ladies are extremely exotic and, they are a really different breed of females.
    There are so numerous stereotypes connected with black ladies and,
    you will find the women very interesting. The girls can be discovered
    in all parts of the world and, the most popular black women are African Americans.
