    Rep. Speier said her baby moved “from the vagina into the cervix.” Any MDs out there who might know what that means?

  • reproductivefreedomfighter

    On an addendum on Huffpo, it said she probably meant from the uterus to the cervix.  Thank you, Congresswoman, for stepping up and making this personal.

    That was my assumption. It was a completely off the cuff speech about a very personal topic. Thus not surprising that she may have swapped some anatomical words around.


    I deeply appreciate her candor.


    I’m still wondering why abortion is even part of the debate regarding Title X and PP when zero of those dollars go to fund abortions? The logic escapes me.

  • jodi-jacobson

    It was a moment of confusion because, although she was clearly in control as she spoke, she also was clearly angry, impassioned and speaking about a personal tragedy.

    Jodi thanks for posting the video. I loved how she said, “What does this have to do with jobs.” Exactly. What does my uterus have to do with job creation?

    Pandering to extremists who want to control what happens in your uterus is the only thing that keeps them employed.  However, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with creating new jobs.
