‘Maybe you shouldn’t even want to have sex with me’: Rashida Tlaib’s abortion argument most off-putting yet

Confidence in what one has to offer is one thing — but believing that the world wants to have sex with you is another altogether. Yet the latter appears to be exactly what Rep. Rashida Tlaib thinks about herself.

While participating in a pro-abortion rally outside of the Supreme Court on Wednesday, the freshman congressman delivered a bizarre speech (yet again) in which she chastised America’s men for allegedly wanting to have sex with her and other unhinged liberal women.


“This past year, I realized — my, my, my are they obsessed with our bodies, how we talk, how we look, what we stand for,” she said, referencing the millions of men and women who oppose the slaughter of babies. “I mean this type of policing of our bodies is so interconnected to all the social justice movements all around the country.”

“You know I, in the legislature, in the Michigan legislature for six years, used to say to people, ‘Yo yo, you know what? You’re so freakin obsessed with what I decide to do with my body, maybe you shouldn’t even want to have sex with me,’ or with you, or with any woman.”

Her “point” (and that term is used loosely) was that men who oppose abortion ought to just stop pursuing sex with liberal women like her …

The point made no sense, since both men and women oppose abortion, since conservative men who oppose abortion tend to pursue relationships with conservative women who feel similarly, and since nobody is trying to outlaw abortion.

The protest Wednesday pertained to June Medical Services v. Russo, a current Supreme Court case involving Louisiana’s “Unsafe Abortion Protection Act.” Signed into law in 2014, it’s a common-sense bill “that requires doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital,” according to CBS News. That’s it.

Though Tlaib’s “have sex with me” remark was part of a broader non-point point about America’s abortion laws, the arrogance of it still rubbed many the wrong way.

Granted, it also provided plenty of fodder for the world’s wannabe comedians.


The problem is that members of the far-left believe the right’s opposition to abortion revolves around sex, when in reality it revolves around a deep, religiously rooted belief in the sanctity of life. It’s a point — an actual one — that was articulated by President Donald Trump during last year’s National Prayer Breakfast.

As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” he said.

All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from Heaven.”


Dovetailing back to Wednesday’s protest, Tlaib was by no means the only participant guilty of delivering controversial remarks.

Pro-abortion activist Renee Bracey Sherman proudly touted her own abortion, thus demonstrating her lack of respect for the sanctity of life:

Rep. Ayanna Pressley insulted Supreme Court Justices Thomas Clarence and Justice Kavanaugh, both of whom have been falsely accused of sexual harassment/assault:

And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer outright threatened both Kavanaugh and fellow Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh:

Apparently, Democrats don’t respect Supreme Court justices either. Who knew?
