Texas. Again. And this time, tampon free.

A quick copy/paste is all I need do for this one:

Texas Senate is a no-tampon zone during abortion debate

Due to the heated debate taking place Friday in the Texas Senate over House Bill 2, a move to ban late-term abortions, the gallery is filled with people. And while women in the crowd may have differing opinions, none of them have any tampons. Or feminine pads or tissues. Or condoms. Fearing that such intimate items could become missiles flung at the heads of policymakers by abortion-rights advocates, state troopers are confiscating such female necessities from attendees. Senators may vote on the highly controversial matter Friday night, but at least they can concentrate without threat of a tampon fusillade.

  2. There are quite a few of us Texas women who would like to drop more than tampons on those bigoted old males in the Capitol in Austin.

    • Hey Anna – welcome! Delighted to see a woman from the fine state of Ann Richards and Wendy Davis. So, you’re a Texan, do you think it’s possible that this series of episodes is getting the attention of all women, not just Dems or libs or whatever?

  3. Given the general lack of civility and decorum that pro-abortion cultists normally display, the ban makes sense. It is, however, a bit amusing.

    • You still confuse pro-abortion with pro-choice. They are not the same thing.

      • As far as I can see they are. There’s no real, moral difference between saying people should be allowed to do something if they want and choosing to do it themselves.

        In point of fact, many of those who, in the 19th century, were dead set against Abolition made the same argument. They claimed that while they were personally not in favor of slavery they thought it should be an individual choice and not outlawed by the government.

        Really, Moe. That’s a lot like me saying that I’m pro-choice, not pro-genocide when it comes to our Muslim enemies.

  4. But it is okay to bring a gun in. Since the truly scary prospect is that of someone committing a mass tamponing.

  5. The measure seeks to ban abortions past 20 weeks of gestation, mandate abortion clinics to become ambulatory surgical centers, and require doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic at which they’re providing abortion services.
