Michelle Sinched is famous in Houston, Texas for creating corsets for women.

Now, she is applying her talents to sewing voodoo dolls of Texas Governor Rick Perry (R), or as she calls him, "Governor Goodhair."

According to HoustonPress.com, the voodoo dolls come with with tampon pins to cast spells on Gov. Perry who has supported and signed a restrictive abortion bill (today) that does not allow abortions (even in the cases of rape or incest) after 20 weeks. 

The bill also requires an abortion clinic to conform to standards of a licensed ambulatory surgical center, which will likely shut down most of the clinics in Texas.

"I was inspired to make [voodoo dolls] because I wanted to figure out something I could make that would send a message and raise money for Planned Parenthood," explained Sinched. "What's better than sticking pins in Gov. Goodhair or burning him at your own doll sized stake?"

"I would probably best describe myself as pro choice and pro life. No one ever wants to face the abortion choice but it happens. I believe no one has the right to make that choice, but the woman it affects. I was once a client of PP and I have felt a great deal of gratitude for them being available when I had no insurance and could not afford birth control or annual well woman check ups."

A Gov. Perry voodoo doll wearing an anti-abortion coat hanger T-shirt costs $25, or people can buy a doll with a suit for $30. They can be bought as a pair for $50, and each comes with a blank sign that customers can fill in with their own slogan.
