It hasn’t even been 24 hours since Donald Trump won the presidential election, but for some women, it’s apparently never too early to start clutching their pearls — and IUDs:

Fusion’s Taryn Hillin writes about all the gals who took to social media after Trump’s victory to implore the sisterhood to stock up on IUDs before it’s too late and they have to pay for it themselves:
In light of this dystopian possibility in which birth control is hard to come by and abortions are no longer legal, women are already taking matters into their hands. On social media Wednesday morning, hours after the election was called, the ladies of America began urging each other to protect themselves against unintended pregnancy by getting intrauterine devices—commonly known as IUDs—while contraception is still covered under the Affordable Care Act.
It’s a sad day indeed when women feel there is a ticking clock on their reproductive and health care rights. But alas, that’s the America we voted to live in.
Dunno. It’s pretty sad, too, that so many women think that President Trump will show up at their house and steal all their birth control with his tiny hands.

@asymmetricinfo I find it astonishing that people think the GOP at large wants to ban birth control

Yes, banning IUDs is on the 100 day agenda. Eyeroll. https://t.co/RIYJaEuzmH

@Fusion feminists might also want to research the term female hysteria, then slap themselves in the head for becoming a stereotype.

.@Fusion I'm old enough to remember how GWB was going to come to your house and arrest you for abortion. This hysteria helps no one.

Well, almost no one. It’s actually worked out pretty well for one notable person:
These are the kind of unhinged histrionics that got Trump elected. https://t.co/YQZpULmhN1
