Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 20 June 2012 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 06/21/2012 12:39:33 AM PDT by Rummyfan

A Michigan legislator, Lisa Brown, gave a speech in the statehouse last week that would have made her right at home in a women's studies course at a local community college, but a wacko in a group of actual legislators.

She commented on a pending abortion bill by first announcing that she was Jewish, kept kosher, described her various sets of plates, and then saying that Jewish law makes abortion mandatory to save the life of the mother.

This had absolutely nothing to do with the bill being considered, but it may explain why there are no Jewish Tim Tebows.

Then she said: "I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours?"

Her smashing crescendo was: "And finally Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no'!"

It's not clear where Rep. Brown got the idea that the Republican caucus was planning on date-raping her, but I think there's been a terrible misunderstanding. The bill under consideration merely ensured the safety of women having abortions -- and, in a small way, the safety of the fetus, whom the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited legislatures from protecting directly.

When liberals start flapping their lips, it’s always nasty.

Hey, if I could open a beer bottle through a chain link fence, I’d be angry too.

The problem with Ann Coulter over the past few years is that, although she often says (correctly) that almost nobody is watching MSNBC, Ann herself watches it incessantly and acts like the nonsense that goes on there is worth writing about. So Ann spent many columns discussing a non-entity like Keith Olbermann.

Sometimes a left wing “fakeraversy” like Sandra Fluke makes it into the mainstream. But I never even heard of this state legislator getting indignant about her vagina...until this column.

The media are in full smirk mode, not at Rep. Brown's perversely self-referential speech positing that Republican legislators wanted to date-rape her, but at Republican bluenoses, whom they seem to think are shocked by the word "vagina."

Speaking of genuine gutlessness in word choice, it's the abortion industry movers and shakers who are sedulously avoiding using the big "A" word these days. Pro-lifers still use it all the time because an abortion extinguishes the life of a voiceless, choiceless human being.

The word "abortion" is being excised from abortion industry leaders' lexicons because they know what negative connotations it has. When their only permissible "choice" is abortion, abortion apostles will trot out every euphemism they can concoct to avoid calling abortion abortion: "terminate the pregnancy," "interrupt a pregnancy," "empty the uterine contents," "exercise one's reproductive freedom," "take care of the problem," "exercise bodily autonomy."

Want to hear pure Abortionspeak in all its euphemistic glory? Go listen to a "counselor" at your local abortuary or read a Cecile Richards-authored Planned Parenthood press release.
