Leave it it the uterus to make a big splash on the floor of the House of Representatives. Republican house leaders reprimanded Florida state representative Scott Randolph, after he suggested his wife “incorporate her uterus” and also asked them to “look into your heart” in order to get business-friendly Republicans to leave women’s lady parts alone. ”Republicans, after all, wouldn’t want to further regulate a Florida business,” reported the St. Petersberg Times on the incident, which occurred in late March. The GOP defended itself, telling him not to discuss “body parts” on the house floor without first letting kids leave (let’s not forget everyone in the chamber had, early on, spent time inside a uterus). Obviously, no one’s gonna make a U-turn on how they feel about the “U-word.” The comment has since inspired songs, a Uterati Facebook page, led the ACLU to create the website incorporatemyuterus.com and Andrew Leonard at Salon.com wants to get a t-shirt made: “Get the government out of my uterus, and into Goldman Sachs.”

Some students from University of New Mexico’s School of Medicine wrote to us about designing a fundraising shirt for their local Medical Students for Choice organization. We are always happy to slap a uterus up on a shirt, so we agreed on the “Ova Achiever” slogan (seems appropriate for you butt-kicking med school types) and they got them printed up. They just sent these fun photos — we always love seeing a man in a uterus tee.
