Ron Johnson: Need Free Birth Control? Google It

Ron Johnson just doesn't think religious institutions and their health insurance plans should cover birth control. Nope, even though a large percentage of women take birth control for a variety of medical reasons that have nothing to do with preventing pregnancy.

Ron just doesn't believe in it.

When asked by a reporter from Think Progress what his solution was for women who said they simply could not afford to pay for birth control out of pocket...Johnson said women should just Google "I need free birth control."



So we did Google it. The first results were all about Ron Johnson saying people should Google free birth control...but the first result that wasn't that was a website that advised women:
"If you can't afford the pills and/or the exams, here are are some suggestions: Go to your local Planned Parenthood..."
Seriously.
