What’s the Largest Organ in the Human Body? The Fetus.

Todd Akin, take off your dunce cap and pass it to Alabama Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin.

“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down” has been knocked out of first place by “the fetus is the largest organ in a body” in the GOP’s ongoing Race To The Bottom sweepstakes.

McClurkin is sponsoring House Bill 57, the Women’s Health and Safety Act.  HB 57 would “require clinics to follow ambulatory clinic building codes and make it a felony — punishable by up to 10 years in prison — for a nurse, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant to dispense abortion-inducing medications.”

In an interview, she told the Montgomery Advertiser:

“When a physician removes a child from a woman, that is the largest organ in a body.  That’s a big thing. That’s a big surgery. You don’t have any other organs in your body that are bigger than that.”

Uh, OK.  But this opens up some new questions.  Like, after a woman has had an abortion, or given birth, would this be called a fetusectomy?  And having just lost her largest organ, would she need a fetal transplant?

Anyway, Mary Sue McClurkin is now a bona fide member of the GOP’s new “Have You Hugged an Inbred Today?” outreach program.

The largest organ in my body, my brain, hurts.

Obviously, McClurkin learned her anatomy and physiology from a text whose title began "The Golden Book of . . ." and learned obstetrics from her televangelist or radio preacher of choice. All of which makes her bill a testament to Alabama's educational system.

Re: comment moderation vs. word verification. I have had so much trouble with Blogger's vile "thingy" I wound up dreading going to a couple of blogs I like because leaving a comment was just too damned hard. Thanks for using moderation instead.

P.S., if you ever decide to go that route, there are spam-killing plugins for Wordpress that are downright diabolical and wickedly effective.

And then there is that foot organ. Such as the one in her dumb ass mouth.

When someone says organ, I always think of the most appropriate name in classical music, or porn, ever, organist E. Power Biggs.

I'm thinking these idiots just slept through all kinds of sciencey facty classes at school. It is the only explanation for such rampant stupidity. Coming from a woman too, this ignorance is just stupefying. Unless you get a C section there is zero surgery required for childbirth. Now, not having gone through it myself, I may be missing something but I don't think so.

Mr. C: Mine too.

Erik: I can't believe how many "pro life" women there are. Another example of people being conned into working against their own interests.

SW: Her bill certainly is a sad commentary on our education system.

I assumed most people would rather have comment moderation than trying to read those indecipherable fuzzy letters and numbers.

jadedj: That's probably her largest organ.

Jim: Apparently not.

Harry: Do babies have orgasms? Maybe that's what all the noise is during those tent revival meetings.

Randal: We'll have to hope E. Power Biggs doesn't get aborted out of the orchestra.

Jess: I think they slept all through school so they could be wide awake during church.
