One Virginia woman's response...

From tumblr.com:

How one Virginia woman is responding to her state legislators that voted in favor of VA’s forced ultrasound bill.

She posts this message on each one of their Facebook pages:

Hi Senator _____________! I just wanted to let you know, since you’re concerned with women’s health, that my period started today! Color looks good, flow not too heavy. Cramps are pretty manageable but don’t worry - I’ll make sure to let you know if that changes! Thanks again for caring so much about women and our bodies!

If legislators in your state or those representing you at the federal level have voted for anti-choice bills, this is a great way to *thank* them.

Ms Connelly!

No God and no religion can survive ridicule. No political church, no nobility, no royalty or other fraud, can face ridicule in a fair field, and live.
Twain, Mark

Mock them, and never stop mocking them.

Thanks for the Twain quote - he's my favorite.

And the quote from Mark Twain is certainly apt.

It occurs to me, since that one state legislator brought up farm animals in relation to laws about women's reproductive health -- hey, if we're using that as our standard, then let us not forget that many if not most MALE farm animals are gelded. Perhaps we need to take a closer look at how we manage animal herds...

Hey, I'm just sayin'
