So many of us are upset at the latest GOP health care bill that will essentially defund Planned Parenthood and leave so many women without access to reproductive health. But Unbound, the female-founded sexual lifestyle company aimed at empowering women, has decided to fight back. And they've done it in the best way possible.

Unbound is helping you to send a vibrator to your congressperson, to show your dissatisfaction for the bill and highlight the the need for comprehensive women's health care. That's right— a sex toy heading straight for your congressperson. That should seriously get their attention.

"We wanted to send a message that female sexuality and sexual health are important parts of the conversation when it comes to female health," Polly Rodriguez, the CEO of Unbound, tells Bustle. "If our government is going to write the laws that affect millions of women and their access to reproductive health, they need to be educated and aware of the intricacies of surrounding female sexual health. Sending these vibrators highlights our desire to be more vocal about this conversation — raising awareness that female sexuality should not be relegated to the shadows and that there is a lot at stake here."

It's a great idea with an important message. If you have the extra cash, joining the Vibes For Congress campaign gives back to an important cause.

It will cost you only $15 to send a vibrator — and 75 percent of that will go toward funding Planned Parenthood. And that's a cause worth shelling out for. Plus, it's not just a vibrator you're paying for. Each vibe will come with educational information, including female sexual health stats, facts about Planned Parenthood, and how their vote could affect women.

And this isn't the only way to get involved. "Call your representative and senator and tell them that you support access to health care for women, specifically funding for Planned Parenthood, and that the current health bill as proposed by the Republican party puts the lives of millions of American women at risk," Rodriguez says. There are a lot of ways to show your support for women's health.

And Planned Parenthood is such a big part of that. For many of us, like myself, who grew up in rural areas, Planned Parenthood was a total lifeline. The idea that they would be cut off from funding for birth control, cancer screenings, and more is a huge blow to the women of our country. So it's time to take a stand.

And if you want an interesting way to do it that also gives back to Planned Parenthood, it's time to for Vibes For Congress. Come on, don't you want to?
