Informed consent opponents rally around 'Ask Bevin' hashtag
In the wake of Mary Lou Marzian's tongue-in-cheek bill filed in protest of the state's new abortion restrictions, some women took to Twitter to lob personal questions at the governor.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shortly after a Louisville lawmaker filed a bill requiring men to pledge marital fidelity on a bible before getting erectile dysfunction drugs, opponents of Kentucky's 'informed consent' bill began a social media campaign to criticize the state's abortion restrictions.
As soon as the 'informed consent' bill arrived at his office, Ky. Governor Matt Bevin signed it. Though he later held a ceremonial signing during a pro-life rally at the Capitol.
But in the wake of Mary Lou Marzian's tongue-in-cheek bill filed in protest of the state's new abortion restrictions, some women took to Twitter to lob personal questions at the governor using #AskBevinAboutMyVag.
It quickly spread across the country.
The Hashtag #AskBevinAboutMyVag seems to have started with Twitter user @MollyOShah.
But it quickly grew, with more women tweeting their feminine hygiene concerns specifically to the governor.
While protesting restrictions placed on abortions, naturally other issues began to creep into the conversation.
Nevertheless, the hashtag caught on and has put Kentucky, once again, at the center of a wider conversation about social issues.
