TORRES: Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose. Mr. Speaker…
SPEAKER: For what purpose does the gentleman from Georgia seek recognition?
GEORGIA REP: Mr. Speaker, I would just like to ask my friend if she’d like to change her last statement?
TORRES: Mr. Speaker, if it pleases my colleague on the other side, I will withdraw my statement about “sex-starved males” on the floor.

It’s like these people have never spoken with a pro-life person in their life.
