Representative Matthew Hill Doesn’t Even Know What an IUD is, But He Still Thinks He Should be Able to Legislate What Goes on in Your Uterus

That’s the thing that always gets me about this stuff. These guys don’t even know how women’s bodies work; they don’t know anything about types of birth control, or what equipment is used when or for what, but, by god, they’re going to legislate about it. And they have no shame about it. They’re not even embarrassed when they don’t know something. I mean, somehow, in this whole exchange, it’s Richardson who’s out of order. And why?

I guess because she had the temerity to point out that Representative Hill had no idea what the fuck he was talking about?

I’ll be honest. I don’t know if Richardson has a point or not. Most forms of birth control she’s talking about prevent an egg from being fertilized and only have a very slight chance of maybe causing a fertilized egg not to implant. Pregnancy is, by definition, when a fertilized egg implants in a uterus (which, these folks tend to forget, is a woman’s body part).

I was about to correct Richardson, but then I realized, she’s a colleague of these hubristic idiots. They may indeed believe that, when the sperm meets the egg, a child is magically produced, regardless of whether that fertilized egg implants and a pregnancy occurs. They may, indeed, be convinced that all birth control is abortion. It’s not hard to imagine them trying to outlaw birth control next.

I mean, when you see them calling Richardson out of order for revealing that Hill has no idea what he’s talking about, you start to believe that this is about making sure the women stay properly under the control of men, whether or not those men know what they’re talking about.

Over at Your Liberal Friends, they have a list of Democratic jackasses. Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to do a little blogger outreach to Ty Cobb. We can’t have a young guy who doesn’t think this shit through, because we don’t want to be stuck with him being a bozo for the next 20 years, you know?

  1. The Kinsey report found that less than 60% of American men knew both what he clit was and what it was for. Unbelievable!

  2. This stuff gets me pissed off when men think they can stop women from using birth control, yet those bastards can plaster their Viagara, Cialis, Enzyte, etc. ads all over the airwaves. It’s like they’re saying ‘Men! Take this, make your penis big(ger), then when you want sex, go get the next faceless hole to fill, since it’s all about you!’. Idiots! But no, women are supposed to take the squirt and have a kid! Ban birth control and it has to be a law-all men who screw get a forced vasectomy!

  3. I had to wait 5 years to get a hysterectomy even though I had periods for months and horrible pain, then got Depo Provera to stop them all because this stupid male OB/GYN my sister recommended but didn’t tell me about his religious bias. The fact the bastard changed hospitals later due to the fact they did abortions, and then didn’t want to fix me because he felt women should be baby makers, shouldn’t have had anything to do how he treated patients. He only did a D&C and I lost my insurance. For 2 years I had periods off and on and then in 2008 met my new OB/GYN.

  4. To end, bad periods (the male dick even asked me ‘Don’t you want to have a period), hellish cramps, 100 pounds gained due to effects of Depo P, and telling my sister up one side and down the other, I met Dr. Brown and she tried an endometrial ablation, which worked for a year and 3/4, then I had a biopsy and 3/18/10 I got my hysterectomy-I had a uterus full of fibroids, endometrial tissue growing on and around my parts but luckily no cancer. Thanx to Dr. Brown I feel SO MUCH BETTER! No thanx to Kolter the dickhead who everyone I meet who knows my story says-what the hell was up with that asshole?

  5. So, to conclude, I had 5 years of pain and suffering because of some male and his damn religion, yet my first appt. he told me if nothing else worked he’d do a hysterectomy. He didn’t tell me a religious bias meant he didn’t want to. But of course he made a fortune delivering babies. Yet Dr. Brown said had I wanted kids I probably couldn’t have carried them to term because my cervix was twisted and my uterus screwed up. I told Dr. Brown to send my pulverized uterus (DaVinci robot surgery) to Kolter, but it was biopsied instead. =)

  6. Speaking as the product of Baptist homeschooling, independent Baptist churchgoing, and Baptist/ind. Baptist colleges (all of which have at least one class which explicitly deals with their ideas of life, conception, and abortion), I think I can say with some authority that yes, many many many people do teach that egg + sperm = life. It’s not that out there for you or Richardson to think that these legislators hold a Southern Baptist/Independent Baptist/Baptist-y evangelical view. Also, these same people do think the IUD causes abortions (covered specifically in Liberty’s “General Education” year long course for freshmen).

  7. Eight years into the Iraq war, how can these guys not know what an IUD is? Our soldiers are killed by IUDs every month!
