Oregon gubernatorial candidate rips ‘Menstrual Dignity Act’ as an ‘implosion of the family’
Bridget Barton, Republican gubernatorial candidate for Oregon, discusses the consequences of her state’s ‘Menstrual Dignity Act.’
Oregon’s Republican gubernatorial primary race is heating up, and key issues are moving to the fore. Among them ranks a key social issue that has worked its way into the restrooms of all school-aged boys and girls across the state.
The “Menstrual Dignity Act,” signed into law by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown last year, sparked controversy by mandating that all public schools across Oregon supply menstrual product dispensers in both boys’ and girls’ restrooms regardless of age.
Fox News Digital spoke with GOP gubernatorial candidate Bridget Barton on Monday to dig deeper into this controversial issue that she says she is not afraid to stand up against.
“This is an absolute implosion of the family; it’s a violation of the family,” she said, lamenting the onslaught of LGBTQ+ rhetoric in elementary schools.
“It’s very confusing for children, and then, when they hit puberty, they have even more confusion about their bodies and have real difficulty understanding what’s going on in their world, a lot of them go into depression, they act out, and we’re seeing more and more evidence that is causing kids to become confused, depressed, and to have to act out and have very serious problems going forward,” she added.
Barton went on to emphasize the mental health consequences of the act and said the issue could pick up steam and become a concern for parents and school systems nationwide in the future.
“We’re sort of the tip of the spear here in Oregon and what happens here on the left coast almost always starts drifting back,” she said, adding “it comes from the two coasts and sort of meets in the middle.”
Barton relayed the immense disdain she witnessed from parents across her state – not only with the “Menstrual Dignity Act,” but from what she labels as a “radical leftist agenda.”
