On Sam Brownback: This Is Your Soundtrack

Okay, so it's one thing to be anti-abortion. It's another thing to be so anti-abortion that you oppose it even in the case of rape or incest.

It's another thing entirely to be a man who thinks he has a uterus.

Sam Brownback starts to forget his 8th grade biology lessons at 0:42

But we need to remember that, even if Sam Brownback doesn't actually have a uterus, he has every right to have a baby.

STAN: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me 'Loretta'.
REG: What?!
LORETTA: It's my right as a man.
JUDITH: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
LORETTA: I want to have babies.
REG: You want to have babies?!
LORETTA: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.
REG: But... you can't have babies.
LORETTA: Don't you oppress me.
REG: I'm not oppressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb! Where's the foetus going to gestate?! You going to keep it in a box?!
LORETTA: [crying]
JUDITH: Here! I-- I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans', but that he can have the right to have babies.
FRANCIS: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister. Sorry.
