Menstrual Products Right to Know Act of 2017
To require menstrual product ingredient list labels.
Menstrual Products Right to Know Act of 2017 This bill requires menstrual products, such as menstrual cups, menstrual pads, tampons, and therapeutic vaginal douche apparatuses, to include a list of ingredients on the label.
I think it's unreasonable to allow feminine hygiene products to not label their ingredients. Anyone should have the right to know what they are putting in their body. I support this bill and hope our lawmakers would too. I would hate to have to tell my daughter that our lawmakers thought it was too inconvenient for the companies to print ingredients on their packaging. Or that the freedoms of our corporations to profit was more important than the health and safety of her body.
