Uterus incorporation goes national

by Dara Kam | April 5th, 2011

Florida state Rep. Scott Randolph’s suggestion that his wife should “incorporate her uterus” to keep government out of it prompted his appearance last night on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show.

Last week, House GOP leaders chastised the Orlando Democrat for using the word “uterus” during debate on the House floor.

Randolph’s argument: Republicans believe in less regulation when it comes to businesses, but are trying to impose greater regulations on women with the 18 anti-abortion measures now floating between the two chambers. Randolph suggested his wife should “incorporate her uterus” to keep government out of it.

Meanwhile, the Florida ACLU launched a tongue-in-cheek website, “incorporatemyuterus.com,” urging women to “sign up” to protect abortion rights.

“Businesses get special treatment these days. If lawmakers and other politicians see your uterus and your body as a business, maybe they’ll work to get government out of the uterus regulation business as they do for every other company,” the website advises.

  1. Should've gon on Oprah. Says:

    Any politician who appears on the Rachel Madcow show loses any and all credibility they may have had.

  2. Downtown Danny Says:

    Republicans are hypocriotes and liars. Less government? Not when it comes to spending trillions to murder innocent women & children in Iraq, Afganistan, Pakistan & Libya. Less government? Not when it comes to putting government in every doctors office in America to see what they are telling females. Cutting spending? Not when it comes to tax loopholes for corporations like GE who make $26 billion and pay zero in taxes while people making $30k a year pay thousands in taxes. Balancing the budget? Not when it comes to rich people – republicans cut their taxes and then cut services to mentally retarded, poor & elderly. REPUBLICANS ARE PAID LIARS!

    @Should’ve gone on Oprah:

    What’s wrong? If you aren’t spoon fed what to think you can’t watch?

    Rachel Maddox is a Rhode Scholar, extremely brilliant journalist, with an impeccable track record of facts on her side. Just because you may not agree with the political slant of her show–you lose all credibility for all who do? I’m not at all surprised by your ignorant, narrow-minded dogmatic thinking. Now go turn on Faux or read your daily, delusional fable…

    I understand. Intelligent, thought-provoking debate just isn’t your thing.

  4. could be onto something Says:

    He could be onto something. All those welfare recipients with numerous kids could incorporate their uterus’, because no doubt they are money makin’. And then the Gov couldn’t touch them.

  5. Penny Carlson Says:

    You know that situation hasn’t existed since President Clinton changed the welfare laws. ASo you’re complaining about “welfare babies” and hoping to ban abortion at the same time. Wha?
    The basic question goes back to smaller government staying out of our bedrooms and our doctors’ offices! In my opinion, there is nothing sadder than being forced to bring an unwanted child into this world.

  6. Unreal Says:

    Im going to start a website in the same spirit.
