WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Do fetuses masturbate? A Texas Congressman reportedly implied that they can/do.
According to a report by RHRealityCheck.org, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) hinted that male fetuses twenty weeks post fertilization might masturbate as part of his argument in favor of banning abortions earlier in pregnancy.
"Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful," Burgess said according to RHRealityCheck. "They stroke their face. If they're a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?"
This is definitely a new take. Burgess is a former OB/GYN and you can see his profile here.
