"I'd really encourage you not to tell women what to do and not pursue these laws that really are in nobody's best interest. We have other problems to solve. Come on."

We usually think of notable scientist as a pleasant, friendly guy who's more than happy to explain climate change to us with the help of emojis.

But this video released by Big Think Sept. 22 shows a Bill Nye that's just barely holding it together. The subject of his frustration is the current legislation trends with regards to reproductive rights and the belief that life begins at conception.

He has to correct his tone several times as he tries to point out the faulty logic, bad science and the fictitious basis for legislation which is setting back the pace of access to reproductive health services and taking rights away from women who should have the most say over their future.

He manages to keep it together and provide a cogent appeal to lawmakers.

Go get 'em, Bill.

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is under fire for comments he made Thursday night in his final debate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth -- he said he opposes abortion "without exception," even when the life of the mother is at stake.

The trouble came when the Tea Partier doubled down on his position with the media afterward:

There's no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.

The facts Walsh used to justify his position have been proven absolutely false. In fact, studies show that pregnancy-related deaths for women are on the rise.

Missouri Senate candidate -- and world-renowned pregnancy expert -- Todd Akin:

First of all, from what I understand from doctors (pregnancy from rape) is really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

That's all.
