Bill makes birth control easier to get

Sturgeon Bay Republican state Representative Joel Kitchens hopes a bill he introduced earlier this year helps curb unplanned pregnancies. Under the bill, pharmacists would be able to prescribe birth control pills, something that currently needs a doctor’s approval. Rep. Kitchens understands the opposition many social conservatives may have with the idea, but he says it could potentially save the state money down the road.

The bill received a hearing last week and picked up several Republican co-sponsors, including Assembly Speaker Robin Vos. Rep. Kitchens hopes the bill receives a vote later this fall.
