Pageant Interview Questions: Vol. 6

1. Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, testified in front of a Democratic committee in favor of President Obama's plans to compel insurance companies to provide free contraception.

4. Do you think bullying can lead to instances of violence like the shooting at Chardon High School?

5. Do you believe in animal testing if the testing could help save a human life?

6. Though Whitney Houston's death was ruled an accident, her passing prompted many to debate the over use of anti-anxiety medicines and sedatives.

In addition, should pharmacies filling these prescriptions without calling foul on the prescribing doctor be investigated as well?
