Indiana Women Blowing Up The Governors Phones To Tell Him About Their Menstral Cycles

Indiana Women Blowing Up The Governors Phones To Tell Him About Their Menstral Cycles

Now that Indiana Governor Mike Pence has signed one of the most extreme anti-abortion laws in the country — which includes a ban on abortions based on race, sex and disability, requiring abortion doctors to ask invasive personal questions of women seeking to terminate their pregnancies — women in his state have decided that they will give him the intimate information about their reproductive health that he so obviously craves.

A new campaign called Periods for Pence has women jamming the governor’s switchboard with phone calls that keep him apprised of their periods: “My flow seems abnormally heavy, but my cramps are much better.”

In an interview with her local ABC News affiliate, the page’s creator, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I wanted to give a voice for women who really didn’t feel like they were given any kind of input into a bill that would affect our life so much.”
