Juliette Vincent to protest ’48 hour counseling’ in Tennessee abortion law with ‘knitted uteri’

Gov. Bill Haslam may be the first Tenness lawmaker to get a pink knitted uterus from a pro-abortion supporter, who is upset over the new law requiring women to wait 48 hours after counseling to get an abortion.

Juliette Vincent of Antioch plans to mail knitted uteri to all male Tennessee lawmakers, beginning with Haslam, in rebuttal of the new law.

“It’s all an effort to focus on good things for our state rather than this,” Vincent said.

“It just makes it harder for women who don’t have the means. They’re not getting pregnant and saying, ‘Oh, let me get an abortion.’ There’s a lot of thought going into this.”

Vincent came up with the idea after a discussion on Facebook with a friend. Vincent then made the uterus during a crafting social event with friends.
