The Left’s absurd and phony War on Women meme became a dominant theme during the 2012 campaign season. Lady parts screecher Sandra Fluke achieved femme-a-gogue martyrdom and President Obama was elevated to “lord and savior” of $18,000 birth control as Lena Dunham urged young women to vote their way into his harem.

How do you defang the howling War on Women wolves and avoid another campaign riddled with floppy vagina costumes? Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal proposes we obliterate one of their favorite attacks — that the GOP is anti-birth control — by making hormonal contraceptives available to adults without a prescription.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, known for supporting progressive policies, recently endorsed the over-the-counter sale of oral contraceptives. But in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Jindal expands on his conservative case for big government getting out of the way of over-the-counter birth control sales.

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.

It’s time to put purchasing power back in the hands of consumers—not employers, not pharmaceutical companies, and not bureaucrats in Washington. The great thing about America is that power doesn’t come from government, but from people. It’s time to reclaim that power. It’s time to stop government from dividing people or insulting deeply held religious beliefs, and return the country to the path that has always made it great—one where Americans respect and value their fellow citizens, no matter their creed.

Naturally, lapdog Chuck Todd took the opportunity to snicker at Jindal’s “chastising” of “DC GOPers.”

Snicker all you want, lapdog Chuck. Jindal’s op-ed is making the rounds and has the right side of the Twitterverse buzzing. While conservatives are divided on Jindal’s proposal, it’s not just socially liberal conservatives who like the idea.

Others have concerns about his suggestion.

Shockah! Left-wing feminists who make careers out of clamoring for expanded birth control access aren’t into Jindal’s plan. They like having Big Daddy Government involved in their “reproductive health” decisions.

And they’re just getting started. Agree or disagree, Jindal’s op-ed exposes femme-a-gogue hypocrisy once again.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    It’s a great idea. I couldn’t care less if the uninformed have adverse reactions at this point. The adverse reaction to the entire country is much worse. Plus, less government in the marketplace is never a bad thing.

  • BeyondPolls

    Good idea. Birth control pills are harmful to women’s health, so they should go OTC.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Or. Freedom and Responsibility!

      • BeyondPolls

        Not sure what you mean.

        • GTFOBigGovt

          What I mean is you are free to chose what you put in your body, and the information is EVERYWHERE including asking a pharmacist for guidance. The responsibility is YOURS. It is YOU “harming your health” not everybody else. I’ve been using non pill contraception since day one because of it. But that doesn’t meet the narrative of women needing a nanny state to live. Julia is a disgrace.

          • BeyondPolls

            Oh, I see now. I agree.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

    People tend to forget that birth control is not as benign as sugar cubes. Overall health, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, smoking,and age are important considerations that would be ignored if it was OTC. If someone wants a low cost prescription, their local health department is a viable option.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Liberals tend to forget we know all that. Ignoring warning labels = freedom. Want “access”? You got it.

    • $30423294

      Careful you don’t assume that the intention is to make women’s lives better.

      The pesky side-effects can and will be dealt with by further government spending on health care to undo the damage government itself facilitated.

      In addition, the damage to women’s bodies become fodder for the Association of Trial Lawyers, who — surprise! — fund the democrat party.

      The circle of life!

    The “so insurance doesn’t have to pay” argument is lame. I’ve had doctors prescribe me OTC medications going through my insurance several times.

    • dkhilly

      That being said, birth control can have some caaaraazzzy side effects, so I think it would be wise to include a pharmacist consultation in that OCT purchase option.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Something called Obamacare changed the world.

      But hey, thanks for increasing our costs by forcing insurance payments so you can get cheap meds “free”.

      “New federal restrictions on tax-exempt purchases of over-the-counter medication could lead more patients to ask for prescriptions for common drugs…”

      “The IRS regulation prohibits debit cards linked to some of these tax-exempt accounts from being used to buy over-the-counter drugs. However, drugstore payment systems do not distinguish between prescription drug purchases and others. Drugstores may need up to two years to implement such payment systems, Nicholson said.”

        Your assuming I asked for it with that in mind. Doctor prescribes something I don’t recognize, then I get the prescription, read the info listing commercial names…and go “it’s just that!”

  • TocksNedlog

    The tweet by Erin Matson says it all. The SAME liberals spouting “how DARE you RESTRICT access to birth control!” are going to turn right around and spout “how DARE you REMOVE the restrictions on birth control!” because doing that will — presumably — also remove the mandate for insurance companies to pay for it.
    Although, as another poster pointed out, there is NO clearly delineated line of “insurance companies MUST cover ALL prescriptions, but do NOT have to cover ANY OTC meds.” In fact, didn’t this entire debate begin over the fact that insurance companies used to have the option of not covering birth control?
    Bottom Line: Once again, liberals cry “freedom THROUGH government control!” Because insurance companies and Catholic hospitals are NOT ‘people’; and, therefore, should enjoy no freedom whatsoever.

    • EastValleyConservative

      Exactly. The bottom line is their “access” argument is nonsense and Jindal’s suggestion is completely destroying their wedge issue. Keeping in mind though, they come up with a new wedge issue every 5 seconds, all of it usually manufactured.

  • Eric

    BRAVO! Perhaps this is the beginning of the results of the lessons the GOP received this past November. You can not run successful campaigns based on social platforms that an ever growing majority of society disagree with. Hopefully the GOP will begin to focus on what really matters and start to actually contribute to their half of this two party system.

  • TocksNedlog

    I love Jedediah Bila, but her argument is a bit silly. Obviously, if such a change were to take place, the pills would be sold in a similar manner to pseudoephedrine (pills kept behind the counter, show ID & sign the book) including a restriction on how many can be purchased. After that — as it is with ANY OTHER SUBSTANCE AVAILABLE ON THIS PLANET — it becomes a matter of parenting and personal responsibility.

    • Lady 12

      Is it so hard for an older kid to get a prescription and then share it with younger friends? I don’t see how over the counter is going to make it any worse.

    • EastValleyConservative

      Exactly. And considering you can get your hands on anything, legal or illegal without much trouble, the issue is liability for those that sell it, (hence the psuedo issue) so it can be done in the same way.

    • KhadijahMuhammad

      Exactly. OTC basically means “without a prescription.” That’s different than “off the shelf.”

  • stuckinIL4now

  • http://xristosdomini.wordpress.com/ xristosdomini

    So…… We want birth control, but only if it is part of our HMO so that everybody has to pay for it? That makes no logic……

    Taking just about anything out of the government regulated sphere puts it back into the realm of competition making for better products at cheaper prices.

  • d gasawa

    Pro lifers need to remember that many birth control pills work by preventing the newly developing baby from attaching to the placenta, thus starving the child to death. Larger doses of hormones, more likely to cause side effects, are necessary to prevent conception. So morally, at least, OTC birth control pills would be somewhat equivalent to OTC “morning after” pills.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      No. The pill prevents an egg from dropping and has no effect on fertilized eggs. An unfertilized egg doesn’t need to attach to a placenta. If you were right, you’d have a million people spontaneously miscarrying when they continued their pills not knowing they were pregnant and it just isn’t happening. Using terms like “starving the child” are hyperbolic and just not factual when you have an unfertilized egg not being USED.

      Why not make the argument honestly. You can be against preventing pregnancy for reasons of belief without changing the science of it. You can make a case that a morning after pill blocks the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, therefore an early abortion.

      You can even make an argument that BC pills go against nature, or God’s will that an egg meet up with a sperm and end up in a baby, and that’s fine, too..

      But if a birth control pill was the same as a morning after pill, which blocks the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, nobody would need a morning after pill and just use b.c. pills.

      Mayo clinic disagrees with your theory..

      Also The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that oral contraceptives should be made available over the counter. Jindal didn’t make that up.

      • GTFOBigGovt

        P.S. There is no placenta sitting there waiting to feed a baby upon fertilization. The baby (fertilized egg) is in the Fallopian tubes anyway for 3 weeks WITH it’s cells that will become the placenta, anyway. So you can be totally against it but please be accurate with the science.

        The inner group of cells of the baby/fertilized egg will become the embryo. The outer group will become the cells that nourish and protect it. On contact, it will burrow into the uterine wall for nourishment.

        The placenta, which will nourish the baby throughout the pregnancy, also begins to form at this time, the 4th week. .

        So one could say that the entire “package” of baby and placenta are both destroyed with the morning after pill (NOT a birth control pill) without using the language “starve the child”.which only serves to cause pro abortion people to ignore your point. It can also been seen with imagery which is ACTUALLY, IMO, the best opposition for abortion. Pro abortion people cannot claim a BABY that you can see on modern science imagery is just a cluster of cells.

  • Purple State

    What’s the hypocrisy that Jindal has exposed? The contraceptives policy in the ACA requires insurance companies to cover contraceptives — not employers, not taxpayers, not “big government.”

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Do you have insurance? When you own a business, your insurance policy price is determined by your choices of coverage. Just like car insurance. You can choose to provide employees catastrophic coverage only or full coverage for everything under the sun.

      Therefore, saying that businesses who pay for an insurance policy aren’t paying for BC or early abortion pills is analogous to saying that paying a hit man to murder someone is legal and only the hit man is guilty.

      Another analogy is the government saying that your car insurance MUST include a rental car or free towing when you don’t want that, but OTHER PEOPLE do. So you are paying for some other person’s rental car or tow because they’re too irresponsible to join AAA.

      The hypocrisy is that Obamacare requires all employers’ insurance policies to cover BC or not provide insurance at all, therefore forcing the employee to be sent to a government approved plan. All because some women demand someone else pay for their contraception.

      AND if I, as an employee shipped to a govt plan, AM PAYING the insurance company a price for a policy that includes BC, I AM PAYING for the BC even if I don’t use it…for YOU to get it – even as a private individual not a business. Basic economics.

    • KhadijahMuhammad

      Economics 101: Money is fungible. If there is a payment made by a company to an insurer for insurance, and the insurance covers X, then X is paid for by the company and no one else. This Obama slight-of-hand only works on those who don’t understand economics.

      In short – the insurance companies are NOT paying for the contraceptives. The employers and taxpayers are.

  • Jack Deth

    I think Mr. Jindal has chosen not only the wrong battle, but also the wrong battlefield on this topic.

      The woman, then, has to gird up for a pricey and emotionally taxing trip to an abortionist, OR sign up for a lifetime of childrearing, while the guy goes on to the next bar.

      The “primary beneficiary” of birth control is not the man. That’s absurd.

      • TexSizzle

        Third option: adoption.There are probably as many couples looking for babies to adopt as there are babies murdered by abortion. We know of several couples who would love to adopt, who cannot find infants to adopt, or in one case, trying to adopt children that CPS keeps giving back to the biological mother until the inevitable next time she screws up and CPS takes them away from her for the nth time (in one case, the most-recent n=7).

        • KhadijahMuhammad

          Without question we need to move to a more open and free adoption system and present it as the first alternative.

          I recall listening to Dr. Laura some years ago, and her saying that there is even Down’s Syndrome children get adopted at birth demand for children is so high. The abortion industry has painted the adoption agencies into the corner, in their pursuit of profits.

        Granted, but that horse has already left the barn. The three monotheistic religions traditionallly hold that sex is nonrecreational and is engaged in only for the purpose of procreation, which is why coitus interruptus was (is?) considered a sin.

      The American Association of ObGyns has reviewed all these very real complications and determined OTC availability is acceptable. That tells you two things. First, the dosages and formulations have been adjusted over the years to minimize those complications to the point where they are (secondly) no different than other OTC medications.

      Remember, many have said that aspirin would not pass FDA guidelines if it had to be approved today. We have other OTC medications with known side effects — it’s always balancing act between the benefits of broad availability and risk.

But guess which one the Media targets for sexual abuse allegations? Not the pubic schools (misspelling intentional) where 10% of teachers molest. And why the religion of Atheism has a higher molestation rate than “except one”? That’s because the Atheist religion is relativistic and stands for nothing – except killing 100-200 million in the 20th century. And hoping the 21st century is their banner century in bloodshed.

        See if the “pro-life” movement were really pro-life they would be agitating for free birth control and sex-ed in the schools.

        But what they really hate is slutty slut sluts having sex without their permission. So when a woman has sex with condoms or on the pill they are “getting away with it” and that drives the pro-lifers completely insane.

        Why they hate other people’s sex lives is the mystery.

    I’m totally for this all the way and am glad Bobby is putting it out there. Would there be wrinkles to iron out, sure, but i think overall it’s a good idea.

    republicans are not anti-birth control. please! some of you! double down!!!

    They have over the counter birth control. They’re called condoms, and they’re the only birth control that also prevents STDs. Now THAT’S a real win/win, but for some reason most folks don’t ever advocate condoms anymore. Did STDs go away while I wasn’t looking? When did they stop being a concern?

      “they’re the only birth control that also prevents STDs”

      Incorrect.

      Abstinence is the #1 best way to prevent STD’s.

        Besides that, condoms are not all that great as birth control. If you only rely on them once, you have a high probability of pregnancy prevention, but the more the use, the higher the probability that you will use a defective one and lose the lottery, so to speak.

        Also, some viruses, including HIV, are small enough to go through microscopic pores in the rubber, so they’re not that great at disease prevention either.
