Jim DeMint, who does not have a vagina, insists women want forced transvaginal ultrasounds

Rachel Maddow smacked Jim DeMint (Big-R) with some reality on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday. According to DeMint, women like being forced to have mandated ultrasounds before undergoing an abortion procedure.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained that ultrasounds, contrary to what DeMint said, are not free and they are forced by the state.

She said, “So it’s an invasive vaginal forced procedure that a woman cannot say no to by order of the state government, and that is all right with you. I understand that. You feel that you’ve got an interest strong enough to override a woman’s desire to not have that happen to her that you can insist that it does as a Legislator. But most American women I think are going to balk at that.”

DeMint was not swayed, and continued to insist that women want forced ultrasounds. Rapists also insist their victim wanted ‘it’.

    Sort of like refusing a “forced” x-ray before requesting an operation.

    Ladies, there is a very simple way to end all of these invasive procedures and government regulations of your reproductive system . Call a lawyer and get your womb incorporated as a legal business entity. The Republicans will back off all regulations (and probably give you a tax break as a vaginal-American corporation) faster than you can say Citizens United…!

    To be fair, we do not know for sure that he does not have a vagina. I’m just sayin’……

      Very true. Perhaps a transvaginal ultrasound can give us the proof.

      Actually, that insults all women on the planet – we are smarter than he. Now, do we want to look at lack of respect for women in those who may think they are “on our side”?

      • searambler

        No disrespect intended, surfer. Just a statement that reads less humorous than it was in my head…..

    Oh, FFS.
    Please proceed, senator.

    Women want forced… STFU DeMint! Clueless douchebag. Should be forced to have a “probe” !

  • TurboKitty

    I marched with my mother in 1972, right down Wilshire boulevard, for Women’s Rights and to this day, men like him enrage me … WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS!?!?!?

    • Dizcuzted

      He thinks he’s the boss of you, that’s who. I honestly don’t understand why women, or any man who supports women as fellow human beings would vote Republican.
