Good for him, these type issues are personal / moral issues for people to figure out for themselves not the government.

jindal doesn't get the picture, the sandra flukes want the pills FREE, not have to buy them and spend their ebt money on pills, that's saved for beer and lottery tickets

But, there's no place for this sorta thinkin' in the GOP. Jindal will follow Crist.

I think it is spelled with an h but they need to get away from preaching their version of morality to everyone or just be satisfied with voting in the democratic primary so they can have some input on who the president is.

Jindal is right. Pharmacists should not be allowed to refuse to fill birth control of plan b prescriptions. I don't think anyone is asking for free birth control but are asking that insurance companies cover prescriptions for birth control just like any other drugs.

LOL Poor guy is trying to be the lone black Republican moderate OR so he wants us to think.
Don't trust him. Once in office he'll become another ALEC covert, like Governor Dick Snydley of Michigan.
Governor Snydley of Michigan doesn't care. He has children in a very expensive PRIVATE school.
Bill Allowing Guns In Schools, Churches Moves Through Legislature
December 12, 2012 7:49 PM
LANSING (WWJ)- It could soon be legal to carry concealed weapons into Michigan churches, schools, hospitals and sports arenas.
A bill that would wipe out most so-called “gun free zones” is speeding through the lame duck legislature, despite some vocal opposition.
Randy Block from the group Michigan Unitarian Universality says the fast-tracked legislation did not get the consideration it deserves.
Block was among several who testified before a House committee Monday morning.
“If it really had the chance to be seriously debated, they wouldn’t come out of committee, but they’re being railroaded through the legislative process this time — and I don’t think that that’s very good for democracy or our citizens,” Block told WWJ Newsradio 950.
“It violates our religious principles that you should try to resolve things with love not hate,” he said.“People believe in peaceful resolution — and bringing a piece is not what we had in mind, I guess you could say.”
The House committee passed the bill on Wednesday. The full House is expected to follow suit, even as clergy members presented lawmakers with thousands of petition signatures from those opposing the legislation.
WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reports political opponents have called it ”another example of this legislature over-reaching,” while sponsors of the bill believe the law will make citizens safer.
Under the new law, people who concealed carry in gun-free zones would have to get enhanced training beyond basic requirements and spend additional time at the gun range.“Open carry” in those areas would remain prohibited.
The state Senate approved the bill last month. It’s not clear of Gov. Rick Snyder plans to sign it.
SEE ALEC. SEE DICK SIGN ALEC INTO LAW! RUN DICK, RUN!

I bet they are very proud of their new gun law.
The ability to mil with the pull of a trigger sure makes me feel safe. The more ways people can get guns into schools the better.
