Glenn played some mind numbing audio on radio this morning from Sandra Fluke, a self-described reproductive rights activist, who recently spoke about why Georgetown University must pay for her contraception. Unfortunately, her argument had a number of holes in it, including the math she uses to claim that the university is inflicting students with a financial burden.
The Blaze reports:
During a testimony in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Monday (a meeting that was held by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi), Fluke — who was coincidentally the only witness heard — described the financial constraints that purchasing birth control puts on her peers.
“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy,” Fluke said, referring to the fact that the university doesn’t pay for contraception. “Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school.”
She detailed, among other stories, how one woman felt “embarrassed” and “powerless” at the pharmacy counter when she “learned for the first time” that contraceptives weren‘t covered by the university’s health care plan.
“$3,000. How much sex do you have to have for your contraception to cost three grand during law school?” Pat asked.
“You would have to have sex three times a day the entire time you were in law school,” Stu explained.
Three times a day? Who is having sex three times a day?
Well, as the guys pointed out you could have a disorder. You could also possibly be a prostitute. You could be abstaining from sex except for one day a week and having sex 21 times on a Saturday
“Who are we to say that's skanky or slutty in any way? Good for you. It should all be paid for by us,” Pat joked.
“You want to have sex 21 times a week, go ahead.
I don't care,” Glenn said. “You should have to pay for (the condoms).”
As the guys went through her audio, she said she was on a “public interest scholarship” to go to Georgetown.
“She wants more public money to have a lot of sex,” Pat said.
“What kind of country do we live in? Where we can't provide unlimited access to protected sex? For college students who aren’t paying in the first place to go to school! How could we live with ourselves?” Pat wondered.
It only got worse. Fluke said she got together a lot of the students and went to the university to say how much of a problem it was that they weren’t paying for her contraception. She said, “e expected that when 94% of students opposed the policy, the university would respect our choices regarding insurance.”
“Stop just a second. Here's an idea. If I can get all the students to organize and we could go to the Dean's office and I can get 94% of all students to sign up saying, I just want the degree without doing any of the work, we expect that. 94% of us want the degree without doing any of the work, (the university) wouldn't go for it! That's crazy!” Glenn exclaimed.
“94% of us want steak and lobster dinner every night for free and they won't do it. We just expected it. Surf and turf every night,” Pat joked.
“I'm ready to get on a handmade boat and sail to Cuba. I can't live in a country like this,” Stu joked.
“By the way, she's talking about $3,000 a year that's creating this hardship. $3,000 a year! You can go on the internet as I have just done to a fantastic website, and you can get any birth control pill for three packs for $80. So that would give you about, say, $25 a month. There's another one for 20 Bucks a month here. You are talking between $700 and $900 for a year. Not $3,000 a year. That's if you want the pill,” Stu said.
“If you want to have condoms and you are not having sex three times a day and you don't want to go to Planned Parenthood that we're funding for the free condoms… how many avenues?” he continued.
“We have to not only give them these rights but give them the way they want, where they want them, the store they want them, the pharmacy they want them, the classroom they want them. The position she wants to have it in, every single thing, we have to pay her for. It's insanity!” Stu exclaimed
“This liberal mentality, this progressive mentality. It's killing us. It's absolutely killing us. Did you ever think we would get to a point where you would have this sort of entitlement mentality?” Pat asked.
