Hmm it is really hard for the doctors to hold back laughing.
BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.

The question Monday from Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.

Barbieri later said that the question was rhetorical and intended to make a point.

Interesting...that would imply swallowing could cause pregnancy.

Somewhere in the world Bill Clinton just fainted.

I wonder if he can see his mouth since his head is so far up his ass.
