THE CONSERVATIVE IDIOT OF THE DAY: VITO BARBIERI
In the great and august deliberative body that is the Idaho State House, a Republican member of the House State Affairs Committee, Vito Barbieri, during a hearing about an anti-abortion bill had the following exchange with a panelist, Dr Julie Madsen:
Dr. Julie Madsen, a physician who said she has provided various telemedicine services in Idaho, was testifying in opposition to the bill. She said some colonoscopy patients may swallow a small device to give doctors a closer look at parts of their colon.
“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” Barbieri asked.
Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.
“Fascinating. That makes sense,” Barbieri said, amid the crowd’s laughter.
