Unhinged Dem Rep Blasts “Sex-Starved” Male Congressmen For Talking About Abortion
California Democratic Congresswoman Norma Torres said she was sick of her “sex-starved” male colleagues talking about abortion.
Speaking on the floor of the House yesterday, Torres said, “It is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose.”

Torres’ comments came in response to Republican Ross Spano (FL), who criticized a spending bill for the Department of Health and Human Services that would leave federal tax dollars vulnerable to being used to fund abortions.
“For more than 40 years, this country operated under the policy that not one cent of taxpayer money can be used to fund abortion. We are a nation that deeply values religious liberty,” Spano said.
The New York Post reports:
The comment elicited an audible response from the House floor, with some people groaning.
Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.) got up to ask whether Torres would “like to change her last statement.”
…Ultimately, she opted to change her remarks.
“I will put it in different terms, it is tiring to be here on this floor or in committee as a woman to continue to be counseled about what types of affordable [care], whether it is family planning conversations that rightfully I deserve to have with my own doctor choosing when women want to have a family and to avoid pregnancy,” she said.
“It is unfortunate that that is something that continues to be denied to American women day in and day out on this floor. And with that, I will reserve the balance of my time.”
