That's a direct quote from Texas State Representative Jodie Laubenberg.
Take a wild fucking guess which party she belongs to.
No details beyond that at the moment; I don't have a specific source yet, will add one when I can. I'm sure it'll be all over the news by the morning, and I'll be sure to add it to the Chart tomorrow, but I wanted to at least get it on the record this evening.
Only surprise: The fact that a woman could say something so utterly stupid and revolting about this particular topic (then again, there was Sharon Angle and her "lemons out of lemonade" comment...)
Update: OK, I don't have the recording or a news article yet, but I have it from three different sources who are live-blogging the Texas legislature proceedings:
Finally, a Shelby Cole on Facebook replied to my request for a source by stating simply "I'm sitting in the room. She said it."
--Womantrust just added a 4th confirmation of this quote in the comments. With that in mind, I'm formally adding it to Volume VII of the Chart (see below)
IMPORTANT UPDATE x3: I finally have a more official source for the quote...and in context, it's far, far WORSE than you'd think:
The bill's sponsor stopped answering questions about her bill after the first two hours after she got into trouble denying Democratic amendments. When Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston, called for an exemption for women who were victims of rape and incest, Rep. Jody Laubenberg, R-Parker, explained why she felt it was unnecessary.
"In the emergency room they have what's called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out," she said, comparing the procedure to an abortion. "The woman had five months to make that decision, at this point we are looking at a baby that is very far along in its development."
Her apparent confusion about "rape kits" — a phrase generally used to describe the equipment used by medical personnel during forensic examinations to gather physical evidence following allegations of rape or sexual assault — sparked widespread ridicule on social media sites. Laubenberg, who has difficulty debating bills, then simply rejected all proposed changes to her bill without speaking until the end of the debate.
