Atwood made the shocking claim during a discussion on the operatic adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale, which kicked off in Denmark in 2000.

Preventing life from imitating art.

Hulu's acclaimed drama series The Handmaid's Tale shows a dystopian future where women are stripped of their basic rights — and ladies are using this eerily timely tale to send a message to congress.

The protesters believe the Obamacare replacement bill — which proposes to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year — will severely cripple women's care. And their message has been received loud and clear!

The Senate had hoped to vote on the bill before July 4, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell revealed Tuesday the vote would be delayed.

The spectacle also caused a good amount of buzz on Twitter. See more pics (below)!
