Women are telling Indiana Governor Mike Pence about their periods
Women are contacting Indiana Governor Mike Pence to tell them about their periods.
The women are protesting against the Governor’s decision to sign a bill which restricts abortion rights in the state.
Instead of protesting the decision to sign HB 1337, the women are sending detailed accounts of their menstrual cycles.
The protests suggest that, as the state government has got involved in abortion rights, they might want to know more about women’s menstrual issues.
The ‘Periods for Pence’ Facebook page said that “any period could potentially be a miscarriage without knowledge.”
It goes on to say “just to cover our bases, perhaps we should make sure to contact Governor Pence’s office to report our periods.”
HB 1337 bans women from seeking an abortion due to “Down syndrome or any other disability.”
It is believed that the law includes the Zika virus.
As well as the ‘Periods for Pence’ page, many women have also taken to Pence’s page directly.
