BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.

The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.

Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.

Per his Wikipedia page, Mr. Barbieri is 63-years-old, he’s married and he has a law degree but somehow, despite all those years of life and all that education, he missed the fact that what a woman swallows doesn’t end up in, or go through, her vagina.

Aieee.
