Texas Congressman: Masturbating Fetuses Prove Need for Abortion Ban

And thus, the latest internet meme is born. All right, let's hear from the cell-blob of questionable intelligence, by which I mean Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX):

“Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful,” said Burgess, a former OB/GYN.“They stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?”

They're curled up into a lump the size of an orange, those little stubby hands have to go somewhere. Also, you're wrong. No, God's little miracle is not pleasuring himself like a college sophomore in his little meat apartment. Please. Stop.

If we want to have a discussion on when a fetus has enough consciousness to feel either pleasure or pain—not merely reflex action mind you, but actual awareness—that would be a very fine discussion to have. It cannot, however, be based on an old Texas pervert thinking he saw a fetus whacking it one time with its little proto-fingers. Do better.

Also, if that fetus was really masturbating then it's going to hell anyway, so there's no problem.
