UPDATE:

Interview with Victorian Prude the woman forcibly removed from testifying in Texas
byHorace Boothroyd IIIFollow
TUE JUL 09, 2013 AT 11:54 AM PDT

(snippet)


Did they explain why you were forcibly removed?

There was no explanation. Senator Jane Nelson tried to say I was being disrespectful but how would she know? I barely got to give the complete performance review of every member on the committee. Pointing out that Sen. Donna Campbell is an ophthalmologist is not disrespectful when she asserts in a state hearing that she should be THE expert on reproductive health. What was disrespectful was the parade of anti-choice zealots and misogynists who got up for 13 hours and called women murderers, killers, promiscuous, thoughtless, and selfish. Not a peep from committee chair Nelson on those.

She SHOULD be! Fucking over her own gender. She SHOULD be ashamed!!!!

It astounds me that ANY woman would be in favor of forcible state rape (which is how I regard unwanted intrusion into a woman's vagina in ANY form - whether it's verbal, legal, manual, or with plastic ultrasound probes).

It is what we must all do to stop the Conservative boots from stepping on our rights.

These "pious" tea party republicans have connections and want to keep their hands looking clean. We must show how dirty they really are. Bullies think that they can get away with subjugating others until we get between them and their false righteousness.

I applaud her!

Teabagging idiot who leads a flock of idiot teabaggers into the idiotic abyss. Fuck you Ted Cruz. I hate Senator Dan Patrick who cuts your phone call off when you call in to his show and beat him on the facts, and then keeps berating you so it sounds like he beats you down when all he really does is hang up on you. Fuck you Dan Patrick. Fuck the whole Texas Repugnant Party.

I attended several excellent universities and one excellent law school: University of Houston, Trinity University, Houston Community College and South Texas College of Law.

The cities are OK, the country is backwards.

I would have nowhere to go. I don't have any connections in any other state.

The onslaught of the Tea Party on women's rights, education, health care, and all the topics she is ranting about are driving anyone with a brain and a skill set out of the red states. They are trying to nationalize Mississippi, and they are succeeding throughout the slave state and even into PA and WI. I don't see why anyone who, like this young lady, can escape would choose to remain in those desolate wastelands.

And said so much in her short time at the mic. She is correct that the Lege has radicalized 100s of 1000s of Texas women. I know a couple of people in my tiny circle who previously were not at all activists who have risen to the challenge and been successfully getting completely nonpolitical/apathetic people fired up and going to Austin, as well as to local dem party meetings, and Planned Parenthood events. Those folks in the Lege have no idea what they have done.

52. Wisconsin

I thought I was watching what happened in Wisconsin until I realized in Wisconsin they haul them off before they can speak. Where the hell is this country going, since these assholes took over in 2011 we are headed to a 3rd world dictatorship.

55. Thank you to the younger generation of women

 

Those of us who fought this in our youth are now old, but we did warn you it was coming. In many ways, it is even worse now than in our youth. The BC Pill had just come into the mainstream back then and wasn't fought against much as it is now.

Your older sisters will help you anyway we still can.

I am glad to see that younger women are rising up; I, too, will stand with them.

56. This video MUST go viral.

This is the first time I've seen it. This is disgusting.

I don't hear anything in this young woman's speech that rises to the level of being physically removed. What about free speech? Yeah, I know... But that doesn't make it all right.

The Republicans really haven't figured out yet that everything is video taped these days. I intend to use that ignorance by spreading videos like this every way that I can.

59. Jane Nelson -- the most useless two words I've uttered all day


makes one want to vomit at watching her in operation - in all irony, she actually made this young girl into a hero so undermined everything she was trying to silence by giving her a place on the world stage

Jane Nelson -- a walking, talking vurp

I'm not aware of any requirement of "being respectful" in the First Amendment. I'll have to look again. Kudos to this woman.

64. Those who lack a viable argument often resort to physical intimidation.

That should be a mandatory continual broadcast in all Texas polling places next cycle. Then, it will never happen again.

81. She should sue for violation of her civil rights

She was not afforded her democratic right to address her grievances to her government. Nor was she allowed the same time period or deference to her points as the others.
Sue both the troopers who physically removed her and that asshat who interrupted her.

the Right's vehement hatred of women and the Stockholm Syndrome of female Rethuglican lawmakers. I'm sorry, I don't care if the fetus is ready to be born tomorrow- if a woman wants the damn parasite out of her body, that is her f*^$in RIGHT. ANY restriction on abortion is a form of VIOLENCE against WOMEN.

86. Texas should be embarrassed with their legislature

Being anti-choice, pro-death penalty, and privatization of prisons to just name a few. Good for her, I wish she'd gotten another minute or so off before they hauled her off.

Maybe we should start sending post cards to that female legislator with a picture of gonorrhea of the eye.

88. Jane Nelson is just one of the female female impersonators in the Lege.

No actual woman would do the things to other women that they are doing.

Simple as that.

The only good thing coming out of this is the suicide by the Texas GOP. By making enemies of 50% of all voters, just a few men can swing the state back to where it was when I was growing up.

94. WHERE ARE THE LAWYERS. She should SUE the committee chair for misuse of law enforcement

which denied her her 1st Amendment right to speak to HER representatives. She must SUE for her right to finish her initial statement and have it entered into the Texas committee record.

Committee Chairs MUST listen to all that their constituents say about representatives' public behavior over public issues. THAT is the proper role of committee chairs.

106. She's not done being awesome until some lawyer steps up to support her, gets her back in there

to FINISH the officially testimony she was scheduled to give by that committee. For the public record. This committee has to be court ordered to let her finish exercising her 1st Amendment rights. It's not as if she said anything that wasn't true.

103. What an amazing young woman!

In my interaction with my former students I am finding that the young women are sounding like we did in the 60's and 70's, outraged! Republicans and pro-lifers be warned, you are unleashing a group of tigers who will march all the way to the ballot box. May the Texas legislature be outed for what they are, a group of old, worn out white guys who believe in pro-life as long as it isn't messing with putting lots of minorities to death.

She makes me so proud, her parents done good....
