NOW Protests Virginia Ultrasound Bill With Tubes of Lube

Robin Marty

The Charlottesville branch of the group protested the bill's requirement with nearly 1000 tubes of lube.

Women of Virginia are still angry over the governor’s passage of the mandatory ultrasound bill, and they aren’t going to let him slip away from his decision.

Not even with a whole lot of lubricant.

Via The Daily Progress:

NOW President Kobby Hoffman helped seal a box containing 864 packages of Surgilube to Gov. Bob McDonnell, which was mailed to his office after the demonstration.

“This is to remind him of the next 864 women who will be getting the outrageous mandatory ultrasound procedure authorized by his signature to begin July 1,” Hoffman said. She called the demonstration the “Gel the Gov” project.

There’s no word of what the governor will do with that much lube, but he’s never been one to mind his own business.
