Michigan Republicans ban Democratic state Rep. from abortion debate for saying "vagina"

Michigan Republicans think it’s okay to legislate vaginas – but not talk about them. During a debate over one of the most restrictive anti-choice bills yet, Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown read a letter from a voter that concluded, "Finally Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina, but no means no." You can watch the video here.

In response, not only did Republican Speaker of the House Jase Bolger ban Rep. Brown from any further speaking during the debate – Democratic state Rep. Barb Byrum was also banned for daring to speak up.

Reps. Brown and Byrum have a right to speak. Send Jase Bolger an email demanding that their voices be heard. (email can be edited)
