Mike Pence is responsible for the most restrictive anti-abortion law in the country. The law passed by Mr. Pence is vague enough that women could be jailed for having difficult pregnancies. The law also forbids parents from opting to have an abortion if the fetus has Down’s Syndrome,or any fetal abnormality. The bill also banned abortion due to the fetus’ race, or gender. The bill even went so far as to dictate funeral requirements for any remains after an abortion or MISCARRIAGE. All remains were required to be buried or cremated! Thank God I don’t live in Indiana, as I personally had two miscarriages after about 6 weeks. Imagine the challenge of finding a casket the appropriate size for the those remains.
#periodsforpence and #tamponsfortrump are two twitter groups organized to ask the Mr. Pence and Mr. Trump how we should use our reproductive organs, when, how often, with whom, and those all- important end-of-life decisions regarding our eggs.
Some of the Twitter remarks and questions include:
Now, where can I send my used pads and tampons so Pence can look through my eggs?
Indiana Governor Mike Pence is quite familiar with the details of his constituent’s cycles.
(Call to the Governor’s office)I need to get a message to the Governor that I am on day three of my period. My flow seems abnormally heavy, but my cramps are much better …
Raw Story lists phone numbers to call if you have questions about difficulties with menstruation, about death of a loved one’s eggs, or frustration arising from sexual dysfunction. Here are some I tried:
Trump Headquarters: 646-736-1779
Republican Convention: 216-263-2016
Mike Pence’s Gubernatorial Office: 317-2324567
I personally called each. Nobody answered at the Trump office. I think they were in hiding. I had my calls answered by the Republican Convention office and Governor Pence’s office. To my surprise, each of the people I spoke with were rude, in-spite of my cordial nature. I would encourage everyone to call to get answers to your questions. If I had been able to pose my questions before “Tommy” hung up on me, I would have liked to know:
- Does Mike have a recommendation for the proper way to deal with a yeast infection.
- What does he think about douching?
- If a person miscarries at 6 weeks gestation, are they required to embalm the fetus?
- How do you get a death certificate for a 6 week old fetus?
- Can I get life insurance on any fetus?
- Does a fetus have second amendment rights?
- Is there a prayer that would be appropriate before sexual intercourse?
