Reproductive health supporters have been sarcasm-bombing the Facebook pages of legislators who do not support their cause. Often, these legislators are men who don’t want women to make their own decisions about their own reproductive health. Virginia state Senator (and Republican Caucus Chairman) Ryan McDougle (R-Mechanicsville) introduced a bill that would force women seeking abortions to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound in which a “wand” is inserted into the woman’s vagina. Here is one of the sarcastic comments posted onto his Facebook page: “Hello Senator. My daughter is still young, but will one day be a woman, and before I know it she’ll be having her ‘curse,’ if ya know what I mean … it’s not easy for kids, especially females, to have to deal with this fact of life. […] My question to you is, […] religion aside, what should she expect from a government here in the U.S. that wants to probe her vagina? How do I explain to her the whole ‘good touch, bad touch’ thing when politicians think it’s acceptable to explore vaginas with plastic instruments? Also, is this part of a plan to create jobs somehow?”
