Democrat State Representative Says Men Should Be Castrated to End Abortions, Taxed to Store Their Sperm
Democrat Illinois state Rep. Dianne Pappas believes that the answer to preventing abortions is that men should be castrated and charged to store their sperm.
Pappas had met with pro-life critics of the Reproductive Health Act, one of whom recounted the meeting and her statements on the Wayne Township Republican website.
“We tried to keep politics out of this equation, as we were here to represent the parish members for Pro-Life. I personally, introduced myself as a business owner, who is a licensed insurance agent. Two minutes into the discussion, she revealed her views on the topic and how we won’t be able to change her mind,” Jackie Hayden wrote.
“Her eyes connected with mine and she said, ‘You know ladies, with technology the way it is, we wouldn’t have an abortion problem if we applied a plan. Now, I’ve been told it’s a bit radical, but if we allowed men to be castrated, took the sperm to the bank, collected tax dollars on it for storage, then when it’s time, to have the man decide he’s ready to begin a family…. well then problem is solved!'”
This is reportedly the second time that Pappas has suggested this absurd plan to pro-life constituents.
Frederick Douglass Foundation president, and speaker for the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, Babette Holder is now calling for Pappas to be formally disciplined.
“She needs to be censored,” Holder told the DuPage Policy Journal. “What she said is every bit as bad as what Rep. [Stephanie] Kifowit talked about when she spoke of brewing up a Legionnaires’ potion for then Rep. Peter Breen. There needs to be accountability when you make these kinds of statements and you’re supposed to be a public servant.”
