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’.

    and don’t forget, they are free. ok, no they aren’t but they want us to believe they are.

      but we want them, uh but we really don’t.

        “You know you want it.”

        Because, little lady, if you’d just keep that aspirin between your closed knees, why then no need for any of this. But we men know you really WANT sex with us, and even if you say no you don’t mean it, so we’re going to do what comes naturally and what God ordained, and you, dearie, will have to accept the consequences of your actions while I, I go on to the next willing female. I mean, if it was worng for me to have sex, why would that old Viagra be free, huh?
        These jerks remind me of bees or cockroaches…take what they want and disappear into the sunset.

          Hand to god – when I was 16 and went to PP to get the pill, the nun running the clinic actually told me that joke. Yes, I said nun. She asked me if I was being pressured by a boy or worse and when she was sure I was being truthful, she gave me the script.

    First, Gosnell was a murderer. There is no indication he would have provided an ultrasound even if it had been the law – it’s a distraction and has nothing to do with this issue.
    It’s not free and it’s not a choice and they have the opportunity to be informed, no one is preventing them from getting the information now. The idea that abortions are pushed on to women by Dr’s is insulting to our intelligence. The only only ones pushing their agenda on us are these legislators.

    I am a small woman. The idea of ANYTHING like a transvaginal probe being inserted into me terrifies me. Let one of these idiots have something like that pushed into their vagina, oh wait, they don’t HAVE a vagina. Insert it into their rectum & see how they like it. These ultrasounds are NOT free & if they are medically unnecessary, they are NOT covered by insurance. IF a woman even has insurance & many women who are directly affected by this legislation have minimal insurance coverage.

    • Robyn Kern

      I think the trans-vaginal probe should be inserted into their urethra not their rectum, its more appropriate

  • Cosmic_Surfer

    Jim, your wet dreams are spilling into the daytime.

  • WickedCats

    Maybe he would like a hot poker shoved up his ass.

  • StateCollegeGuy

    Perhaps we should require all men who wish to father a child to submit to a semen extraction via a catheter inserted into their urethra. Healthy sperm are essential for a healthy child!

    • Dave Fouchey

      Now there’s an idea for those putz’s

  • wolfendenpackleader

    These transvaginal ultrasound exams are deemed not necessary according to most doctors. Politicians are not doctors. These test run into the thousands of dollars and the next thing, they will say the pictures didn’t come out clear and they will want a redo on them, costing more money.

    I know why these Teabagging Repukelicans want these transvaginal ultrasounds forcibly done on women, they all own stock in the corporation that makes these machines.

    To Jim DeMint and all other sexually perverted GOP members: The women of America will be raped by your torture devices right after we ram a telephone pole, with splinters, not smoothed for ease of insertion, right up your ass and have it pop out of your mouths. Got lube ? Oh ! That’s right, you guys get it with NO VASELINE, just as that teabagging Maine Governor was commenting about last week.

    Sick, sexually perverted GOP politicians make me embarrassed to be an American Woman.

  • OooSillyMe

    Seriously, I think these guys are all closet rapists…..

      Or perverts.

      They seem to be out of the closet these days.

    DeMint should have a colonoscopy to find out where his brain is.

  • StateCollegeGuy

    I’m beginning to think that we should require a drugs test for anyone who wants to hold a seat in the Senate, House, or Oval Office. (On the other hand, if these guys were smoking pot, at least they would be a bit more mellow. Perhaps then they would work together.)

  • 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.

  • Frances R

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

  • Dizcuzted

    Oh, FFS.
    Please proceed, senator.

  • Cassidy

    There are more women than men in this country. If the vast majority of women put their votes against legislators like him, we could do away with all these invasive and inappropriate state mandated procedures. People like him make me sick.

  • Dan Haney

    The problem is, everyone is outraged now, but when he comes up for re-election no one will remember. This is why these Tea-pugs/thugs can say the outrageous things they do, with no real long term repercussions.

  • searambler

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

    • StateCollegeGuy

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

    • Cosmic_Surfer

      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…..

  • searambler

    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…!

  • rjcarter

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