Women troll Indiana Gov. Mike Pence over new abortion law
The law bans abortions based on any disability in the fetus
Several women have called the office of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence sharing information that the Republican might consider “TMI” – detailed descriptions of their menstrual cycles.
The calls are part of an effort to troll Pence for signing a bill that bans abortions on the basis of the race or sex of a fetus or “potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability.”
Opponents of the law said that it would potentially force women to endure complicated, high-risk pregnancies and could discourage women from being open with their doctors.
By sharing graphic information about their periods, the women have said they hope and to hammer home their belief that what they choose to do with their bodies is not the business of the government.
An Indiana woman, who chose to remain anonymous, started the Facebook page “Periods for Pence” and it has garnered over 22,000 followers in about three days.
