(LifeNews) MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry wore tampon earrings during a weekend broadcast, telling viewers they were made especially for her to wear to demonstrate her opposition to the ban on late-term abortions in Texas that Governor Rick Perry signed this week.

“My producer Lorena made for me, last week, some tampon earrings,” she said.

“Because, of course, you’ll remember the Texas state legislature said you could not bring tampons in when they were going, these women, to in fact stand up for their own reproductive rights.”
