Following the recently passed rule in Texas requiring women to bury or cremate an aborted fetus, a Facebook post of protest has gone viral. The mission, so it lays out, is for women to mail their used hygiene products from their last menstrual cycles straight to Republican Gov. Gregg Abbott’s office to check their “fertilized status.”
While the creator of the original post has yet to be identified, Ele Chupik, who has worked in an abortion clinic for two years, posted the call to arms and has received almost 4,500 shares and a lot of attention.
“The majority of reactions have been positive—likes, loves, laughs, anger at the rule, surprise, questions—and I have personally only seen one negative reaction on my thread,” Chupik told the Daily Dot.
The rule was quietly proposed by Texas health officials in July and will go into effect on Dec. 19. The state of Texas will prohibit hospitals and abortion clinics from disposing of fetal remains in sanitary landfills and require cremation or burial of all remains, which could cost anyone getting the procedure up to an extra $2,000.
Considering women lose about 20 eggs during their monthly menstrual cycle, it looks like Abbott might need to bring qualified backup when checking the fertilized status of the remains in these women’s underpants.
