Thank you for having so many of the wonderful "My body my choice" brigade cheering at the notion of adding something to a bill that would require a doctor physically penetrate a man's body to recieve legitimate medication, it shows what a wonderful advocate of "Choice" you and others like you are. Thank you for being a dumbass, you actually gave me a reason to come out and vote in state elections that I tend to forget about more often then not.

    Dumb bitch, **** off with your publicity stunt. How about you spend your time actually dealing with **** that matters or actually arguing against something rather than doing ridiculous crap like this.
    Sorry Zyphlin, but if you want to make a bill to to force women to have an unnecessary medical procedure done just to be ****ing pricks, then there is exactly nothing wrong with attaching equally ****ing ridiculous amendments to it. Go ahead and vent to some one making a point about a group of ****ing people trying to make it harder for women to do something they have every legal right to do in this country just so they can feel ****ing good about themselves. You want to rant about something, rant about people who think bull**** like this bill is a good idea.

    If her "joke" stirs enough controversy to get enough people to realize that it's ridiculous to put women through completely unnecessary medical procedures then I'm all for it and it serves a purpose.

    I would think anyone that is supportive of "getting government out of my healthcare" would support her efforts in raising awareness about this silly bill.

    I'm curious; are you equally adamant about the literally hundreds of state abortion laws that are filed every year, even though the majority of them are unconstitutional on their face and a complete waste of the legislature and judicial system's time?

    Perhaps if someone didn't do something even more ridiculous than what the original bill is...because at least the original bill is being put forth by people honestly supporting it and honestly representing their constituents rather than this piss poor excuse for political discourse that this woman put out...and the bill was posted about I would say something about it. However, much like other instances...when someone does something so ****ing stupid you sometimes have to go after that before you can even get to the thing they were being stupid about. This is the same kind of thing as having to rant about someone calling Obama a socialist when criticizing one of his policies...yeah, the policies bad, but you gotta deal with the idiocy first. Yeah, requiring this kind of thing is stupid...but before I can rant about that we have to deal with this stupid bitch wasting tax payer, including mine as a VA resident, time and money with this idiotic and ridiculous joke of an amendment aimed at forcefully penetrating males.

    The woman is stupid as ****. She, or you, wants to the bill she's protesting to be addressed and to be treated like a ****ing adult...then how about she actually address it like a reasonable adult politician rather than making ignorant inaccurate comments and throwing forward juvinile joke amendments to try and make a point.

    I'm also supportive of increasing the political discourse in this country, which **** like this doesn't do. Congratulations to the woman. Had she actually...oh I don't know...acted as a reasonable representitive, made an argument against the bill, and tried to raise awareness to fight it perhaps she would've swayed me and actually had me communicate with the majority of the people I know which all live in Virginia suggesting the bills problematic.

    Instead she does this kind of juvenile daily show eqsue joke. Congratulations to her, she's accomplished the exact opposite with me as she'd have hoped. I won't be talking to people I know about the issues with the bill, I'll be talking to people I know about the idiocy and ignorance of this official.

    Seems to me she made her point quite successfully. If she just stood up and pointed out that the bill is an affront to a woman's personal liberty, and interferes with her medical treatment -- as scores of other legislators have done all over the country -- no one would be talking about it.

    What you are not seeing is she has actually achieved what she set out to do, which is not have dudes "penetrated", but to draw attention to a retarded ****ing bill. It's amazing how much attention the threat of guys having to put up with **** gets, and how easy it is making bills to force women to do **** is. Hell, her amendment is actually more on target than the bill itself, since there is at least some justification for those procedures before giving out ED meds, while there is no medical justification for the bill itself. So the state legislature found out that if you are going to ****ing harass people, they might harass back.

    Thousands of amendments to bills every year for stupid reasons, but good lord look at the convenient outrage for this one...

    I think, whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, this was a ridiculous law to start with. Seems like this politician was just trying to point that out. Whether it is legal or illegal, it shouldn't require a person to undergo an unnecessary medical procedure.

    Re: Janet Howell, Virginia State Senator, Attaches Rectal Exam Amendment To Anti-Abor

    Gotcha, so her point was to actually cause voters that didn't know much about her to actively decide to vote against her in the following election and convince others to do the same.

    Well, amazing political strategy that. Happy to hear she's "actually achieved what she set out to do".

    Strangely enough, I actually disagree with the law. While I'm not a fan of abortion and would prefer it banned in my state in most cases rather than allowed, forcing women to undergo an additional uncessary and costly test for emotional, not medical, reasons is ridiculous and is not the role of the state imho. However, rather than coming out and actually ridiculing the bill or raise attention to it in any kind of reasonable way she's instead decided to go the route of a publicity stunt. Congratulations to her, I'm sure it'll win her over all kinds of support by those who already support her. However if her intent was to actually convince those who are more moderate or undecided on the issue to actually make some noise and oppose the bill, well...with at least one person she failed miserably due to her idiocy.
