Word 'Uterus' Can Not Be Used on Florida House Floor

Republicans in the Florida legislature Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, was making a point about how the so-called less government Republicans have no problem legislating the rights of women's reproductive system. Yet, these same Republicans strip regulations for their corporate interests. Randolph used the word "uterus" during his House floor speech. The mock police rushed out to protect sensitive ears. What is the politically correct term for uterus. Seriously.

House GOP spokeswoman Katie Betta said this.

House GOP spokeswoman Katie Betta: "The Speaker has been clear about his expectations for conduct on the House for during debate. At one point during the debate, he mentioned to the entire House that members of both parties needed to be mindful of decorum during debate.

"Additionally, the Speaker believes it is important for all Members to be mindful of and respectful to visitors and guests, particularly the young pages and messengers who are seated in the chamber during debates. In the past, if the debate is going to contain language that would be considered inappropriate for children and other guests, the Speaker will make an announcement in advance, asking children and others who may be uncomfortable with the subject matter to leave the floor and gallery."

Betta would have us believe adults would be offended by the word uterus. Has anyone meant a teen that was offended by the word uterus. The only person who was offended was Speaker Dean Cannon. Apparently, Cannon didn't like Randolph pointing out Republicans hypocrisy on regulations. Cannon decided to act like a baby who just came of of a place that would offend the Speaker's ears.

What is this assault on the medical term for that blessed space of Womenfolk?

How can the Womb that has the singular capacity to bear life be deemed an "offensive," or "inapproptiate," or otherwise a terrible description?
