Sen. Janet Petersen made all sorts of remarks about the proposed constitutional amendment in the Iowa Senate on Thursday that would simply state there is no right to an abortion or taxpayer funding of abortion in the Iowa Constitution.
“It’s time to quit punching women and girls in the uterus with your policies and pretending it’s for our own good.”
“I can’t think of a single body part that is regulated more than the uterus. Not a big toe. Not eyes. Not even the penis, which is responsible for 99 percent of all rapes and 100 percent of all intended pregnancies in this country according to facts and science.”
“I don’t like to be mansplained on what human rights are.”
