Desperate Liberals Claim Pro-Birth Control Republican Wants To Ban Condoms
Remember back in 2012 when liberals launched a whisper campaign claiming that Romney wanted to ban tampons and their idiotic, uninformed supporters bought it? Here’s take two.
Colorado Republican Cory Gardner supports prescription-free over the counter birth control. That’s a policy you would think many liberals would support but Gardner is a Republican and therefore evil no matter what.

Cory Gardner: Women should be able to buy the pill without a prescription
The least loved institution in America today is the U.S. Senate, and one of the reasons it is reviled is a zero-sum approach to women’s medical care. It’s time we changed that and adopt modern policies that make sense instead of using women’s medical issues as an election-year power play. One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock is to approve oral contraception for over-the-counter purchases by adults.
Since “the pill” was first approved 44 years ago, it’s been one of the most proven and tested pharmaceuticals of our time. It is safe, reliable, effective, and presents very few risks or complications for the more than 10 million women who use it. When other drugs have that kind of track record, we approve them for purchase without a prescription; the Food and Drug Administration has already reclassified over 100 different treatments. Name-brand drugs like Advil, Pepcid, Claritin, Prilosec and many others were once sold by prescription only, but moved to over-the-counter sale (OTC) once they’d been proven safe and unlikely to be abused.
The leftist outfit known as NARAL or the National Abortion Rights Action League, has released a new ad claiming Gardner wants to ban condoms.
