Jindal Says Birth Control Pills Should Be Over The Counter – What Do You Think?
Governor Jindal has said some interesting things after the election. One of the most interesting happened a few days ago when he mentioned that he thought birth control pills should be sold over the counter. Jindal gave his reasons in an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, saying,
As a conservative Republican, I believe that we have been stupid to let the Democrats demagogue the contraceptives issue and pretend, during debates about health-care insurance, that Republicans are somehow against birth control...As an unapologetic pro-life Republican, I also believe that every adult (18 years old and over) who wants contraception should be able to purchase it. But anyone who has a religious objection to contraception should not be forced by government health-care edicts to purchase it for others.
What do you think? Is he right about this or is he wrong? And, is this just noise made in anticipation of a run for the White House in four years? Let us know what you think in the poll below.
