    Sounds a little weird but makes sense.

    I think it's unreasonable to allow feminine hygiene products to not label their ingredients. Anyone should have the right to know what they are putting in their body. I support this bill and hope our lawmakers would too. I would hate to have to tell my daughter that our lawmakers thought it was too inconvenient for the companies to print ingredients on their packaging. Or that the freedoms of our corporations to profit was more important than the health and safety of her body.
