When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Yes that's right readers, according to Rep Michael Burgess [teabagger from Texas] - that at fifteen weeks, the male fetus can masturbate! Who knew?

As the House of Representatives prepares on Tuesday to consider huge legislative restrictions on a woman’s right to choose, one GOP congressman is using the idea that fetuses can masturbate to argue for more abortion restrictions.

On Monday evening, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), an Ob/Gyn by trade, told his colleagues to, “Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful”:
They stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?

The House’s bill uses the scientifically disputed idea that a fetus can feel pain after 20 weeks as the basis for effectively ban all abortions after that time. Several state legislatures have passed similar bans, though just last month an appeals court struck down a ‘fetal pain’ bill in Arizona, finding that the law was unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade.

If this guy is your OB/GYN, run for the hills! This mentality requires a human to be of a special kind of stupid.

If fetuses do masturbate, why only male fetuses? Also, why assume that's what any fetus is doing? [demented GOP thoughts] Infants have very little motor control long after they're actually born, to assume that they're performing complex actions at 15 weeks seems really bizarre to the sane human. This is especially true because without any developed mental capability to form desire in the first place - and a genitourinary system which is not yet developed well enough at 15 weeks to even determine the gender of a fetus [which is a milestone that occurs at 21 weeks] let alone pleasure ones self- Mikey Burgess has just now entered "batshit crazy" land.

Yes this American Taliban er is a OB/GYN, and you would think he'd come up with a better theory that the laypersons would find plausible - unless, of course, he just thinks the average layperson is an idiot.

Many fruits seem to come from Texsas, can't we just allow them to secede from the country and be done with them?

Michael Burgess, you sir are today's worst person in the world! Shame on you for being such a troglodyte - that you would stoop to this level so that you could pontificate your ideology for controlling women's body parts.

Remember my favorite saying readers: "The best form of birth control is looking at congressional Republicans discussing birth control"!
