Demand that Texas investigate why state troopers confiscated tampons

You can bring a gun into the Texas State Capitol with a concealed handgun license—but not your tampons, maxipads or diabetic supplies.

On July 12, as the Texas state Senate voted on a devastating anti-choice measure, state troopers ordered all women seeking to enter the building to surrender their tampons and maxipads.

In at least one case, a woman was also ordered to remove her diabetic supplies. “I’ve never been so humiliated in my life,” she said tearfully. The above video is painful to watch.

It is bad enough that the Texas state Senate is assaulting a woman’s right to choose. But whoever authorized this outrage must be held accountable. Sign our petition demanding an open investigation of the Texas state troopers’ conduct, and that appropriate disciplinary action be taken.
