Listening to Rush the other day and he's talking about this Georgetown law student and how she can't afford condoms because she's having too much sex. He was being hyperbolic of course, but I had to check this girl out for myself.
She is a very smart liberal hack who is basically lying to promote an agenda. Her first lie is to deliberately conflate non-reproductive medical issues with birth control. If you listen to her opening statement, she would have you believe that 99% of women who go to the doctor for birth control medication do so for reasons other than preventing pregnancy. Really? I suspect that most women get birth control for it's primary use which is not a medical condition, but a lifestyle choice.Interestingly enough, according to Ms. Fluke Georgetown student medial insurance does allow birth control to be used for medical purposes.
Her next lie is that you can have your cake and eat it too. The woman's sense of entitlement is disturbing. To those who suggest she go somewhere else for law school, she retorts that she should not have to "choose" between a prestigious law education and her health. Really? Is that the only law school? The only prestigious one? Who says that she or anyone else has to be a lawyer? Is it a right? No, going to school is a privilege, one that you pay for. No one forces you to go to law school, no one forces you to go to a catholic law school, and no one forces you to have sex. The irony must be lost on Ms. Fluke that she and her ilk insist on forcing others to subsidize a life she voluntary chose to have.
Birth control costs about $1,000 per year, Georgetown about $40,000 per year. You do the math.
