MSNBC host wears tampon earrings to protest Texas abortion bill

On her MSNBC show Sunday, Melissa Harris-Perry introduced a new type of jewelry inspired by the recent protests at the Texas Capitol.

Tampon earrings.

“My producer Lorena made for me, last week, some tampon earrings,” Harris-Perry said as she inserted them into her pierced ears.

“Because, of course, you’ll remember the Texas state legislature said you could not bring tampons in when they were going, these women, to in fact stand up for their own reproductive rights. You weren’t allowed to, initially, to bring tampons,” she explained.

During debate this month on abortion restricting legislation in Texas, protestors descended on the Texas Capitol. Officers with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) confiscated items that could have been thrown into the gallery, including tampons and pads.

Democratic State Sen. Kirk Watson called the practice “boneheaded” and “crazy,” telling the Associated Press that he was able to secure assurances from the DPS that it would stop.

“So just in case that ever happens again, ladies, you can just bring them on your earrings,” Harris-Perry said, going on to introduce the show’s next segment, donning on her ears what most women wear well out of sight.

During DPS bag inspections officers discovered a number of questionable items, including jars allegedly containing feces and urine, in addition to the feminine hygiene products.

“During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items — as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals — were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery,” DPS described in a press release.

Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry signed the abortion bill into law on Thursday.

This is what happens when you abort your baby! You go insane! And then they have the gall to stand up and say shame on keeping your baby. Insanity abounds?

You have to admit that if Chris Matthews did it, that MSNBC’s ratings might actually go up for a change. It’s worthy of a Photoshop.

“Chris Matthews with Tampon Earrings.”

I feel that within five months, ANY woman should be able to have made up her mind if she wanted to eliminate her baby... Before then, she should be aware of the pregnancy, and if so inclined to murder her child, have ample time. I don't think this is really about the time frame. Possibly some preventative mesures should be discussed with the Dr. and patient....or, maybe the preacher would have some guidelines against murdering your child vs. prevention of pregnacies.

Oh, looky! It's a couple of tampons with an ass in the middle!

What is it with these people being furious over a law that does nothing more than require abortions to be treated as medical procedures? I thought they didn't want them performed in 'back alleys'...or is it just they don't want them done anywhere but in THEIR back alley?
