Heartland Signal got hold of audio of Governor Brian Kemp at the University of Georgia giving his thoughts on banning contraceptives. Now, if you weren't one of the extremist Republicans, and you were asked about this, you'd say no if you were asked if you were open to it. Oh, what am I saying? There are no moderate Republicans anymore.

The Republican Governor said it depends on "where the legislatures are" on that issue. Of course, he did.

"You could take up pretty much anything, but you got to be in the legislative session to do that," Kemp said. "I think I'd have to check and see because there are a lot of legalities."

You can hear the audio below:

Via Heartland Signal:

Kemp already signed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country in 2019, which bans all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Cardiac activity can usually be detected in an embryo around six weeks of pregnancy when most women do not even know they are pregnant yet.

You knew it was only a matter of time before Republicans tried to get even more control of women. It is all about control. Well, that and forcing women and girls to have babies. What next -- repealing the Nineteenth Amendment? This is getting ridiculous.
