According to journalists on the ground, on Friday afternoon, security guards started confiscating tampons and pads from women attending House proceedings. Yup. Women who are on their period and need their sanitary products will need to leave their “weapons” at the door or be turned away. But don’t worry, if you happened to bring your gun and you have your concealed carry permit, you’re all set! Go right in. No need to check your gun at the door, but you’re going to have to leave your tampon with them. Why are they taking pads and tampons away from women? To punish them for having a uterus? No of course not. That’s what SB1, the bill that will shut down most abortion clinics in the state, is there for. According to Huffington Post, it was to preserve the ”rules of decorum" because officials suspected they would be used as projectiles.
