I stole that headline! It’s not mine! It belongs to the lovely Kayleigh McEnany. I’ve provided a link to her opinion below. I figured if I provided a woman’s opinion here I won’t get blamed for being a part of the “Republicans War on Women.” Nice label libs!
I do have some opinions on this matter however; and some comments on Ms. Fluke’s testimony.
- I believe birth control pills, when necessary for medical treatment, should be covered by one’s insurance.
- I believe birth control pills, when used for the prevention of pregnancy, should not be covered by one’s insurance. I would never demand that my fellow taxpayers pay for my condoms.
- I believe the Federal Government should not force insurance companies or religious institutions to cover contraceptives where religious values are concerned…. unless it’s medically necessary.
- In doing some research I found that polycystic ovary syndrome produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old)… but Ms. Fluke claims that a whopping 40% of women at Georgetown University can’t afford contraception. To the women who need contraception for medical purposes, you should be covered. The other 30% who want taxpayers to pay for them to have protected sex (Rush’s angle), buy your own protection!
- A thousand bucks a year for birth control? C’mon Sandra! My ex wife’s pills were $23 a month! And even though she claimed they were medically necessary (started buying them after we split up, of course!) she’d never demand that my tax dollarss pay for them… only my take-home dollars!
- Rush Limbaugh is not the animal people claim him to be. He makes a lot of money getting people fired up. No different than Howard Stern, in my opinion.
- Sandra Fluke is simply a political activist. Pulled into the game by Nancy Pelosi.
- On his show, Rush, as always, used absurdity to illustrate absurdity. He belittled Fluke’s testimony to make it seem like she was only looking for federally mandated free contraception only for the prevention of pregnancy. In doing so, he called her a slut and a prostitute, which I feel is harsh. But, those are two words one would expect to be uttered by a shock jock.
- In front of Congress, Sandra Fluke absurdly testified that, basically, all contraception for women should be paid for by taxpayer dollars, regardless of a medical need or not. Look up her full testimony on YouTube!
- Rush is a fame whore. Sandra Fluke is a fame whore.
