Sunday 22 May 2022 02:31 AM Female Trump-backed candidate in Michigan will vote to outlaw contraceptives trends now
A female Trump-backed candidate running for Michigan state Senate said if elected she would vote to outlaw contraception as Republicans across the country continue their aggressive push to scale back abortion rights.
On a recent appearance on conservative news outlet Church Militant, Jacky Eubanks, who is running for Michigan's 63rd House district, claimed that banning birth control would solve the supposed declining population issue in the country.

The Trump-backed candidate added that if elected and a vote on birth control were to be brought up in the state House, she 'would have to side with it should not be legal.'
