Republican lawmakers and Utah politicos celebrated the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday, with one legislator saying she trusted Utah women "to control [their] intake of semen." Rep. Karianne Lisonbee described a text message she said she received urging her to hold men accountable for unwanted pregnancies. "I got a text message today saying I should seek to control men's ejaculations and not women's pregnancies ... I do trust women enough to control when they allow a man to ejaculate inside of them and to control that intake of semen," the Clearfield Republican told reporters at a news conference at the Utah Capitol on Friday.
