Daily Kos: More Anti-Abortion Wisdom From Texas: Only ‘Accurate’ Intercourse Causes pregnancy
How long before they tell us that you can get pregnant from swimming in a swimming pool? or it’s not possible the first time a woman has sexual intercourse? “Accurate Intercourse” sounds like they are confusing their gunz with something … .
Texas is becoming something of a failed state, I fear.
The brilliance this time comes from state Sen. Bob Deuell (R-So SMRT), whose legislative website says he is “a board-certified family physician.” According to the Facebook post by his colleague Rep. Dukes, Sen. Deuell (who is now one of the R’s in the Texas Senate trying to interrupt Sen. Davis’s filibuster) had this insight during the debate:
Another ah ha moment in the senate during SB5, Sen. Duel [sic] said pregnancy only occurs after “accurate intercourse”. But of course, any other is I assume inaccurate. Hmmmm!
That is a phrase I have never heard before. I have heard of a great deal of different kinds of intercourse, but the phrase accurate intercourse is a new one. It brings up images of missile defense systems, or a target range, or the world’s most metaphorical dartboard. Pregnancy only occurs … after accurate intercourse. Not inaccurate. No, you need some precision on this one.
