Bobby Jindal's Ridiculous Birth Control Plot
Well, well, well. What have we here? Why, it's Gov. Bobby Jindal, opining in the pages of the Wall Street Journal thatóbrace yourselves for this shockeróbirth control should be morereadily available. But not because it improves the health and welfare of women and their families. That's crazy talk! No, Jindal wants to make birth control accessible because that will really stick it to the Democrats.
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. It's a disingenuous political argument they make.
Ah, yes. Because it's Democrats who run around like headless chickens, screaming and wailing about "religious liberty" and how making birth control affordable and accessible to women is just like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor day . It's Democrats who've said that only sluts use or want birth control. It's Democrats who've said that even married couples should not use birth control because the whole point of marriage is to pop out babies in the name of Jesus.
Oh, no, wait. That's actually the Republican Party.

2. Going by that "logic", then republicans should *really* "stick it to the democrats"
by voting to repeal the Hyde Amendment and restore federal funds to low income women seeking a safe abortion.
