Democrat Rep. Norma Torres of California slammed Republicans on the House floor for opposing a woman’s legal right to an abortion:
Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose.
Republican Rep. Rob Woodall of Georgia whined about the comment, and Torres retracted it.
The House Rules Committee was debating a rule setting up amendment consideration for a four-bill spending package that includes funding for public health programs.
