The employees of Hobby Lobby may not have certain forms of birth control covered by insurance anymore, but not to worry: The crafts store offers ample supplies to DIY an IUD on the cheap.
Okay, not really. But in this satirical video by comedy duo Sandy and Richard Riccardi, the purely fictional character Miss Sandy from Hobby Lobby uses pipe cleaners to build adorable tinsel “abortifacients.” Rest assured, all of the crafting supplies used in the video are actually from Michael’s, which covers the birth control of its employees.
As the disclaimer below the video indicates, “No, you can’t make a working IUD from pipe cleaners and glitter. So don’t try.” But as activist art projects go, it’s pretty fun and easy. For the more experienced, however, may we suggest this knitting project?RG
