In recent weeks, the GOP attack on contraceptives and women’s rights has been returning to the legislative tables, and causing a stir among women’s rights activists and media outlets nationwide.
Now it seems that many within the Republican party who strive to ban contraceptive use also see it as a necessity to prohibit the use of tampons, and seek to ban the sales of these and similar products as soon as possible.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) recently put together an all male panel for discussion at the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the contraceptive coverage rule and excluded women from the conversation. It seems that he is set to establish a similar group of men to discuss the use of tampons within a woman’s vagina.
It is unnatural for a woman to insert a foreign object into her body for the sake of stopping the menstrual flow. I, as well as several others seek to eliminate the sales of such objects. Women should let nature take care of itself the way that our Almighty Creator intended. To try to manipulate and control such an occurrence goes against God’s plan for women.
Initial drafts of this new legislation have already been brought before Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), and several other GOP Congressmen. It is likely to come to a vote as early as next month. If passed, tampons will no longer be available to sell or purchase, and women will have to find an alternative means to alleviate menstrual excreta.
Several Democratic Congresspeople are already petitioning in dissent of this new piece of legislation, and will not give up without a fight to preserve a woman’s right to take care of her own body as she deems most effective.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
Ladies, you have just done yourself a serious diservice. Not only does this article have NO FACTUAL BASIS WHATSOEVER
It doesn’t even have a link TO THE ACTUAL ARTICLE (if it did, you would reach a fake news site…)
The hell kind of people are you?
Do you realize that every single one of you who reblogged this BElEVING THIS IS REAL are going to go out (or already have) into the real world?
You will have to make decisions that affect other people, as well as yourself?
Decisions that affect THE ENTIRE WORLD?
How can you possibly do that effectively if you don’t even CHECK YOUR SOURCES?
Have you all be so socialized this terribly?
Okay, don’t answer that, clearly the answer is a resounding YES.
Ladies, you need to reevaluate your thinking processes.
You cannot let yourself stay ignorant when you make up more than half of the population.
You want men to take us seriously?
Then freaking TAKE YOURSELF SERIOUSLY.
Its times like these that I wish I could believe in God, because then there might be someone to hear me scream.
Here, give yourself a poke in the right direction:
