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.
