Dem. Rep. Lisa Brown was barred from speaking on the Michigan house floor Wed. For saying the word vagina during a debate about anti-abortion legislation. After being barred from speaking by the republicans, she decided to get a group of women together to perform the Vagina Monologues on the capital steps. Crowd estimates ranged from 2500 - 5000.

Here are two links:

What are your thoughts? Is it unreasonable to ban someone from saying the word vagina during an anti-abortion legislation debate? Last week another rep says she got barred for using the word vasectomy....

I'm with you.  If you can't say it then you shouldn't be legislating it.

They want to legislate the female reproductive system but don't want to use proper terminology. -_- Are you serious? 

And they barred another woman for using the word vasectomy. Slay me.

So would it be wrong to call up the Republican congressional offices in Michgan and just say "vagina"?  That might be kinda funny.
