Women wear 'Handmaid's Tale' costumes in health care bill protest outside Capitol

Here’s what the costumes are SUPPOSED to look like

The Handmaid's Tale, a 1985 novel, recently debuted in April as an original Hulu series.

The protestors traveled from NY state to rally behind Planned Parenthood, and frequently carried signs and banners supporting the beloved health care provider.

"Inspired by Margaret Atwood's 'The Handmaid's Tale", the volunteers came to Washington D.C. from NY to show their opposition to the bill, which could dramatically restrict funding for health care centers that provide access to abortions and other forms of birth control.

A group of Planned Parenthood volunteers donning red cloaks and white bonnets gathered to protest Tuesday at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

If passed, the GOP Senate bill would cut health insurance for approximately twenty-two million people, with the elderly and low income citizens being the most affected.

And even with the two's denials, a photo showing Rice sitting on Hart's lap near the Monkey Business yacht only fueled the fire. We can expect to hear more on these in the next few months as Reitman looks to get the ball rolling.

"It would be the worst bill for women in generations and decimate women's healthcare", Planned Parenthood communications director Fern Whyland told The Hill, adding: "It's a healthcare bill with no healthcare".

The proposed Better Care Reconciliation Act would completely defund Planned Parenthood for one year, affecting all medical services, including cancer screenings and smear tests.

Its adaptation for the small screen resonated powerfully with many modern-day American women, who fear that they could be stripped of their reproductive rights, much like the women in The Handmaid's Tale.

Planned Parenthood certainly is not spending like an organization terrified of losing money that is needed to provide women essential care.

And the group aren't the only ones to have protested in reference to The Handmaid's Tale in recent weeks; similar demonstrations have taken place in Texas and OH in objection to the GOP bill.
