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.
