Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is fuming mad over a recent comment that Republican senator Josh Hawley made in regard to Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown-Jackson.
“So when women like me who had our ovaries removed after learning of a genetic predisposition to ovarian cancer, do we meet your test,” asked Rep. Wasserman Schultz of Sen. Hawley before questioning his manhood.”
"Hey Sen.@HawleyMO, so women like me who had our ovaries removed after learning of a genetic predisposition to ovarian cancer - do we meet your test? Women like us need support, not doubt. A real man would have known the answer," stated Rep. Wasserman Schultz.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s remark comes in response to Sen. Hawley’s recent definition of what a woman is after Judge Brown-Jackson refused to define the term “woman.”
“Someone who can give birth to a child, a mother, is a woman,” said Hawley. “Someone who has a uterus is a woman. It doesn’t seem that complicated to me. So if a woman has her uterus removed by a hysterectomy, is she still a woman?”
Wasserman Schultz’s comment comes after Hawley was asked if a man should still be considered a woman if she lost her reproductive organs.
Hawley said: “I mean, a woman has a vagina, right?”
Judge Brown-Jackson is expected to be confirmed as the next Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.
