Obama Tells Georgetown Students Her “Parents Should Be Proud” Of Demands For Subsidized Sex Life
I don’t think Rush Limbaugh did conservatives any favors by calling Sandra Fluke a slut. Fluke, if you haven’t been paying attention, was the Georgetown University student who said before Congress that contraceptives can cost law students thousands of dollars over the course of their college careers.
Because of this, Fluke contends that the government must force insurance companies to provide contraceptives for free, a de facto subsidy for sex. That notion is absurd enough without having to cast aspersions at Fluke’s personal sex life. In fact, the name-calling only bolsters the Democrat contention that this is a Republican “war on women.”
But now the Obama administration is looking to hold Fluke up as a martyr in this political brawl over mandated contraception coverage, and that may be the most absurd development to date. It’s as though, because Rush Limbaugh said something awful about Fluke, we now have to force Catholics to pay for contraceptive coverage.
“He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women,” said Fluke. “And what was really personal for me, was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud.”
It’s a low day in America when the President says that demands for sex subsidies are something to be proud of.
I don’t really care how much sex Sandra Fluke has, or any other American for that matter. And I think every American should have access to all the contraceptives they don’t want to buy. I just don’t think I should have to buy their contraceptives for them.Tags: Barack Obama, contraception, obamacare, rush limbaugh, sandra fluke
