The Salt Lake Tribune reports:
Republican lawmakers and Utah politicos celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday, with one legislator saying she trusted Utah women “to control [their] intake of semen.” Rep. Karianne Lisonbee described a text message she said she received urging her to hold men accountable for unwanted pregnancies.
“I got a text message today saying I should seek to control men’s ejaculations and not women’s pregnancies. I do trust women enough to control when they allow a man to ejaculate inside of them and to control that intake of semen,” the Clearfield Republican told reporters at a news conference at the Utah Capitol on Friday.

U know what’s fucked up? Before yesterday, they had a choice to not get an abortion. Just as they’ve had for fucking years.
My body, my choice… I’ve heard that recently. Oh yes, from the anti Vax crowd.
Sorry, I’m just really fucking wound up about this and not sure where to direct my ire.
The issue now is that we have true minority rule and changing that will be a generation in the making.
What I think you fail to understand is that they now control the means of electing those that would follow our wishes. The integrity of the upcoming elections, really for the first time in our history, will be in question. They now have the means in law to disregard the votes of those they don’t want and suppress the others to prevent them voting. This will feed false gains offices and further law making it far easier to control and add more GQP members to the seats of power and further surpress the voter will being done. As there have pointed out, historians will point to this time as the beginning of the end of our democracy.
There’s some kind of semen intake valve?
Yes, it’s what kicks in when there’s a legitimate rape. You know, as opposed to those imitation rapes we’ve heard so much about.
“Sexual assault in Utah is common, though often goes unreported,” Sonya Martinez-Ortiz, executive director of Utah’s Rape Recovery Center, told the The Salt Lake Tribune.
A 2016 study conducted by Utah State University found that one in six Utah women have reported having been raped, higher than the national average.
Looks like Utahn women are having trouble controlling their intake of semen, and that those raped aren’t necessarily going to have the documentation her law requires for them to access abortion services.
