Newest GOP Attack on Women: Just Say No to Tampons
Free Wood Post ^ | February 29, 2012 | Sarah Wood

In recent weeks, the GOP attack on contraceptives and women’s rights has been returning to the legislative tables, and causing a stir among women’s rights activists and media outlets nationwide.

Now it seems that many within the Republican party who strive to ban contraceptive use also see it as a necessity to prohibit the use of tampons, and seek to ban the sales of these and similar products as soon as possible.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) recently put together an all male panel for discussion at the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the contraceptive coverage rule and excluded women from the conversation. It seems that he is set to establish a similar group of men to discuss the use of tampons within a woman’s vagina.

It is unnatural for a woman to insert a foreign object into her body for the sake of stopping the menstrual flow. I, as well as several others seek to eliminate the sales of such objects. Women should let nature take care of itself the way that our Almighty Creator intended. To try to manipulate and control such an occurrence goes against God’s plan for women.

Initial drafts of this new legislation have already been brought before Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), and several other GOP Congressmen. It is likely to come to a vote as early as next month. If passed, tampons will no longer be available to sell or purchase, and women will have to find an alternative means to alleviate menstrual excreta.

Several Democratic Congresspeople are already petitioning in dissent of this new piece of legislation, and will not give up without a fight to preserve a woman’s right to take care of her own body as she deems most effective.

Amazing isn’t it?

These people act as if not wanting the taxpayers to fund something is the same as wanting it banned. They also act as if the GOP is the one on the offensive trying to ban it.

sheeple will buy it

Well then, perhaps Ms. Fluke can sit in on this one as well and Congress will lay out the red carpet for her no doubt.

She is now the offical Miss America Slut, a title that Ms. Lewinsky has so longed to give up. Boy, things are moving so quickly these day.

1st: Carter no longer the worst president ever.

2nd: Now Hillary has taken the ugliest title away from Helen. Well, thats a stretch, but I'll go with it.

3rd: Ms. Lewinsky no longer wears the American Slut crown and passes to Ms. Fluke.

I can't keep up anymore. lol

I Googled “Darrell Issa tampons” and the first thing that popped up stated that the website that originated this story is a fake news site. It also stated that it’s the first website on the Google list. It looked to me like it was a foreign website too. At least the first one on my Google list looked Japanese. Not sure.

Anyway, what knuckleheads.

Think they might do anything about the cost of toilet tissue?

Toilet tissue could soon become a better investment than gold. :p

It did not seem plausible. I read the article, and it was drastically vague. The “quote” in it, is not attributed, no source or context cited.

Tampons do not “unnaturally stop menstrual flow”, by the way. They just provide a way to soak it up and keep it from getting out of control

I wonder...Is having their head up their ass technically a "Tampon"?

They're being played like a fiddle by the DNC and its media.
They have no idea how this has unfolded and what are the real issues.
Just parroting, no critical thinking required.
