    Oklahoma and Wyoming Republicans agree women aren't people, disagree on just what they are

    Republicans in Wyoming and Oklahoma are starting to drop the pretense that they consider women to be human beings. In Wyoming, the state Senate is considering three bills that would restrict women’s abortion rights. Two of them are being considered by the agriculture committee.

    [Senate President Eli Bebout] ... Allegations that women are being equated to cattle are ridiculous, the Riverton Republican said.

    Dude, you’re the one who handed the job of limiting what medical care women can get to the agriculture committee. In Oklahoma, Rep. Justin Henry isn’t trying to be even that subtle as he pushes a bill requiring women to get male approval for abortion. He’s ranking women somewhere below cattle:... [highlight mine]

    Henry says women are merely hosts, they only feel as if it's their body. You know, sort of like we're fleshy incubators without a central nervous system.
