Apparently, it's okay in America to pass legislation restricting a woman's right to control her own uterus, but it's unacceptable to actually mention the word "uterus" on the floor of a state House.
During last week's discussion about a bill that would prohibit governments from deducting union dues from a worker's paycheck, state Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, used his time during floor debate to argue that Republicans are against regulations — except when it comes to the little guys, or serves their specific interests.
At one point Randolph suggested that his wife "incorporate her uterus" to stop Republicans from pushing measures that would restrict abortions. Republicans, after all, wouldn't want to further regulate a Florida business.
Apparently the GOP leadership of the House didn't like the one-liner.
They told Democrats that Randolph is not to discuss body parts on the House floor.
So, would calling his GOP colleagues a bunch of dicks violate the prohibition on discussing body parts?
