Pro-Choice Protest of the Day: Taking a page from the book of Virginia Democrat Janet Howell, pro-choice Oklahoma state Senator Constance Johnson (D) introduced an amendment to the Sooner State’s pro-life “personhood” bill (SB 1433) making masturbation illegal.
Oklahoma lawmakers are currently debating legislation that would make it mandatory for women to listen to their fetus’s heartbeat before being allowed to have an abortion.
To protest the bill, Sen. Johnson sought to have an amendment added that would make “any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina…an action against an unborn child.”
Having made her point, she later voted against her own amendment.
“As a woman and a 31-year veteran of the legislative process in Oklahoma, I am increasingly offended by state law trends that solely focus on the female’s role in the reproductive process,” Johnson wrote in an op-ed for The Guardian’s Comment is Free. “With Oklahoma’s new, never-before-experienced Republican majority, we are seeing enactment of more and more measures that adversely affect women and their rights to access safe medical procedures when making reproductive healthcare decisions.”

AMEN

I think my favourite part of this story is the fact that this is how Elle Woods wins a classroom debate against her ex-boyfriend in Legally Blonde.
