Pennsylvania Legislator Calls Pro-life Women “Men With Breasts”
By: Rachel Pulaski
PA State Representative Babette Joseph (D) called Republican women who supported the state’s ultrasound bill “men with breasts”.
Penn Live reported:
Josephs’ remarks came at a political rally sponsored by the Lancaster County Democratic Committee, in which she accused Republicans in control of the state Senate and state House of turning Pennsylvania into a “laboratory for the right-wing. They’re trying all these experiments on us.”
Then, she took specific aim at women lawmakers who co-sponsored the ultrasound bill, asking rhetorically, “I do not understand how a woman in this Legislature can say to herself: ‘I’m not capable of making my own health decisions… but I can get elected and make them for somebody else.’
“What is wrong with these women? What are they thinking about?” Josephs continued. “Are they women? Or are they men with breasts.”
Hot Air added:
Let’s get this straight once and for all: Man and woman are different (as Ms. Josephs implies with her remark) and one of the primary differences between the two is woman’s capacity for motherhood. How is the recognition of that capacity somehow the obviation of femininity? The opposite is true: The negation of fertility is a crude attempt to negate gender difference.
In all the discussion of a “war on women,” hardly anyone has talked about women’s war on women — the now decades-old attempt by feminists to convince their fellow women that what women alone can do is somehow of less value than what both men and women can do. It’s not that men wanted women to become pregnant so they could somehow keep us down; it’s that only women can become pregnant. Read more
Babette Joseph also boasts about being, “The only House member to vote against forced flag pledging and mandatory prayers in public and private schools,” and, “The only member of the General Assembly who does not own, lease, or even drive a car. Babette depends on public transportation to get everywhere”.
She sounds like a real peach, huh?
