You can find my poem under my name, Bridget Eileen. It's titled "Cram Your Way Into Her Body."

In 2011-12, I set out to write a poem a day for a year, from April to April. In February of that year, while watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, I created this poem, in response to then-Virginia governor Bob McDonnell proposing that every woman who sought an abortion would have to have a state-mandated vaginal probe before going through with the procedure. The gross unconstitutional invasion of privacy was mostly an Anti-Privacy (that is my term for so-called Pro Life voters and politicians) means of fundraising, rather than actually trying to do anything that was medically sound or necessary, nor useful to ending Roe v Wade. That is what prompted the content of my poem in this magazine of political resistance.
