Giant IUD Inflatable Put Up in Washington D.C. for Contraception Act

Tell me you have too much time on your hands without telling me you have too much time on your hands.

On Wednesday, just before the Senate voted against the Americans for Contraception (AFC) Act, a group set up a giant 20-foot intrauterine device (IUD) in front of Washington D.C.’s Union Station, across from the U.S. Capitol building.

An IUD is a form of hormonal birth control that is about the size of a quarter and is inserted into a woman’s uterus. It works by making the uterus a hostile environment for an egg by thickening the cervical mucus and thinning the uterine lining making it hard for sperm to fertilize an egg after sexual intercourse. It is not 100 percent effective to prevent pregnancy.

Some women have found it successful, while others have had terrible side-effects including painful periods & sex, bleeding, chills, nausea, infection and depression. 

The display was set up to show support for a bill that was up for debate. Democrats insisted the bill was about reproduction and providing birth control to women, but in reality, it was about funneling money to Planned Parenthood so that the abortion giant could kill more innocent babies through abortion, spread a lie that sex should be casual and advocate for transgender surgeries for minors.

The bill was blocked by Senate Republicans in a 51-39 vote considering how broad it was. But prior to the decision, many shared the image of the IUD and support for the bill in general.

Laura Packard from Health Care Voices shared an image hugging the display.

Y’all, these people are insane. Imagine we get tourists coming in, walking outside the train station and seeing THAT!? All to advocate for a bill that was completely flooded with misinformation.

Jesus, please return soon.
