Rep. Michael Burgess Believes Male Fetuses Masturbate And, Therefore, Must Not Be Aborted

Rep. Michael C. Burgess (R-TX)–he of the zero percent HRC rating–entered the Todd Akin Hall-of-Fame last night at a U.S. House Rules Committee hearing on a GOP bill that would ban abortions starting at 20 weeks.

The former OB/GYN told the committee: “Well, this is a subject that I do know something about… Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful. 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?”

Rep. Louise Slaughter’s (D-NY) deadpan response said it all: “I think all the members are cognizant of the fact that this is not a Congress that cares much about science.”

Rep. Burgess has yet to offer a response to the remarks made yesterday, but we’re going to go out on a limb and say: Don’t expect anything too intelligible.

      Leave it to a repub representative from Texas to suggest that males fetuses are jacking off. Curious he didn’t suggest that female fetuses finger themselves.

      Masturbating fetuses. That’s rich. What do you want to bet that these fetuses grow up to be repressed Republicans?

      Seriously . . . who thinks of things like that? It shows a very disturbed mind.
