Georgetown co-ed: Please pay for us to have sex … We’re going broke buying birth control

posted at 1:55 pm on February 28, 2012 by Tina Korbe

At a hearing of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee yesterday, a single witness — Georgetown law student and “reproductive rights activist” Sandra Fluke — told sympathetic policy-makers that the administration’s so-called contraception mandate should stand … because her peers are going broke buying birth control.

“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception),” Fluke reported.

It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations.

“Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke told the hearing.

Craig Bannister at CNSNews.com did the math — and discovered that these co-eds, assuming they’re using the cheapest possible contraception, must be having sex about three times a day every day to incur that kind of expense. What Fluke is arguing, then, is that her fellow law students have a right to consequence-free sex whenever, wherever. Why, exactly, especially if it costs other people something? When I can’t pay for something, I do without it. Fortunately, in the case of contraception, women can make lifestyle choices that render it unnecessary.

At one point, Fluke mentions a friend who felt “embarrassed and powerless” when she learned her insurance didn’t cover contraception. Can you imagine how proud and empowered that same friend would be if she learned she has the ability to resist her own sexual urges? We can only assume she doesn’t know that because Fluke and she both labor under the illusion that contraception is a medical necessity.

Some little part of Fluke must recognize that it’s not … because she sought to bolster her argument with an example of an illness in which contraception might be a medically necessary treatment. Another friend of hers, she said, has polycystic ovarian syndrome, for which contraception is a common treatment. Some insurance programs that don’t cover contraception normally would nevertheless cover it as a treatment for PCOS — but other insurance programs wouldn’t. Fluke makes it sound like contraception is the only treatment for PCOS. In fact, it isn’t — and contraception is prescribed as a treatment only when the woman also wants to contracept. Fluke says her friend is a lesbian — and so wouldn’t need contraception. Why didn’t she opt for any of the other treatments, then?

At the end of her testimony, Fluke spoke in strong language of her resentment of university administrators and others who suggest she should have chosen to attend a different university that would have offered student insurance that does cover contraception — even if that other university wasn’t quite as prestigious as Georgetown.

“We refuse to pick between a quality education and our health and we resent that, in the 21st Century, anyone thinks it’s acceptable to ask us to make that choice simply because we are women,” Fluke said.

Ms. Fluke, I resent that you think women are incapable of controlling themselves, of sacrificing temporary pleasure for the sake of long-term success. You make us sound like animals, slaves to our instincts and able to be used, but we’re better than that. We’re persons, equal to men in dignity and love.

So do we have to pay for treatment of STD’s after they have unprotected sex, with or without birth control?

If you’re not monogamous, condoms are cheap when you buy them in bulk at Sam’s Club, condoms are what you should be using anyway, and I ain’t buying them for you. If you are monogamous, there should be two incomes to throw at the question of birth control. If there aren’t, you shouldn’t screw broke guys.

So let me get this straight, she thinks the Holy Roman Catholic Church owes it to her, and other women at Georgetown University, to have their sex habits paid for?

Dr Evil on February 28, 2012 at 2:10 PM

The thing that makes me just as angry is that the local bishop hasn’t already told Georgetown to stop representing itself as a Catholic university. That needs to happen today.

Speaking of that, I thought I’d heard on multiple occasions that Georgetown already pays for ABC, at least for its employees.

Georgetown Law costs $23,432.50/year or something around $70,300 for three years. The health plan is $1,895 or around $6,000 for the three years. Are we really to believe by this “reproductive rights activist” (code word for slut) that the university should be expected to increase the cost for the health plan by 50% just so she and her “sisters” don’t have to pay for their own contraception.

This vile “activist” clearly has never worked in the real world or understands life outside of academia.

How much does personal sacrifice cost? I wonder how the speech by bho would fly “those at the top must sacrifice”? Who is he referring to? Who is on top? Who must sacrifice? I think my daughter’s boyfriends would tell a little about sacrifice. Walking past my 25/20 at the front door and helping me clean it before they left on a date sure did help that whole cost thingy of birth control. Seems the lead in the pencil went by by. So the “rich” must pay for their success, but the female college student should not pay for their success. There is a luxury tax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxury_tax) for the rich, how about a luxury tax for those that use birth control? I mean, God/nature/(insert what ever deity you wish here) did not build us to not have kids. And where does this stop? How about the frogs, the birds, the dolphins? Where is their birth control? If there is no responsibility, then why must I wear a seatbelt? It’s not my responsibility. This could go on for another several hundred words, but I will spare you. If this is your daughter, I hope you are proud of what you have made.

Molonlabe2004 on February 28, 2012 at 2:20 PM

I’m in college. Any student can go to the clinic and get condoms free of charge.

However, if you’re doing it 3 times a day, perhaps you’re embarrased by constantly walking in and grabbing a handful.

In which case, maybe you’re mind is telling your body something.

if she had her condoms/iud/abortions paid for, she’d screw more, then law school would take longer and she’d be up there menstruating about how long law school was and how it should all have to be paid for. It’s the “if you give a pig a pancake” story all over again.

Did you listen to what she said – the school pays $0 of their insurance cost – so why does the school get involved in the insurance process at all ? The argument is to force all Ins to include Birth Control. The counter argument is shop around and buy ins that has the coverage you want. I don’t see how all these horror stories give any weight to her argument when coverage they seek is available.

As someone who supported the fight for equality in the 60s and 70s, I am furious to see how our efforts have been so cheapened by today’s young women. It was never our intention to free women to indulge themselves in wanton debauchery.

It makes me think perhaps we were wrong to work to increase women’s economic freedom. It is most certainly more admirable to stay home and raise a family with your husband, than it is to publicly lobby Congress to fork over cash so you can gratify your uninhibited sex drive.

The odds of dying from pregnancy in the United States of America is lower than dying from say A.I.D.S. A Prophylactic protects from both.

“We refuse to pick between a quality education and our health”

This woman is in law school at one of the nation’s most prestigious institutions and this is her argument? First, her implication is that having $3000 worth of sex during three years of law school is healthful for women. Second, she implies that having $3000 worth of sex is necessary to a quality education. Third, she implies that having $3000 worth of sex is the only choice that women law students have. Her argument is weak and unsupported, and in my class, this would earn less than a stellar grade because of the faulty reasoning. I pity the law firm that gets stuck with this. It appears that she should spend that $3000 on tutoring sessions to learn how to construct a basic argument.

I wonder how much these silly kids spend on beer over the course of their college career?

“We refuse to pick between a quality education and our health and we resent that, in the 21st Century, anyone thinks it’s acceptable to ask us to make that choice simply because we are women,” Fluke said.

It’s not real healthy to have casual sex all the time. Therefore, that is a false choice she thinks she is making.

Why is she going to Congress and not her boyfriends?

Greek Fire on February 28, 2012 at 2:25 PM

Objection! Assuming facts not in evidence!

I’m thinking that she really had no standing to testify before Congress.

This kook couldn’t have summarized the liberal argument any better:
I have a right to make people pay for my choices, especially because
I belong to a “perpetually aggrieved” group.

It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations.

Really? $1,000 per year and she’s whining about it? Less than $100 per month?

Do they know what it takes to keep a car fueled for a year so that I can work, earn my living and to pay taxes

PAY FOR MY GAS FIRST, HOE BAG.

Teach her to re-use condoms.

You turn them inside out and shake the f**K out of them.

Wander on February 28, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Wow, just wow.

Amazingly enough, I find myself thinking that perhaps we SHOULD be funding contraception sterilization for this gal and her fellow students who she claims to be speaking for.

They are simply too stupid to be allowed to reproduce.

That $3000 amount is pretty wierd.

Do you think it includes the cost of abortion?

The cost of birth control pills online looks to be $125-$175 for the entire YEAR.

She is not including the cost of treating her STD’s I hope.

It may very well include the cost of abortions.

A few years ago, Nancy Alcorn (founder of Mercy Ministries) spoke at our church and shared what a former Planned Parenthood manager had personally told her. The now-repentant former PP manager said that it was PP’s common practice to intentionally give teenage girls the absolute lowest hormone level dosage of birth control pills. They knew that if the teenage girls did not take the pill at the same time of day, every single day, the hormone level in their body would not be sufficient to prevent ovulation. They did not tell the girls that, and PP knew that the overwhelming majority of teenage girls would not be self-disciplined enough to take the pill at the same time of day, every single day. PP knew that most of these girls would continue to ovulate, thinking they weren’t because they were on the pill, and when these girls were sexually active, they would likely conceive.

The now-repentant former PP manager went on to say that it was part of PP’s business model that young girls who were given the pill “for free” would end up coming back to PP for an average of THREE abortions before they reached the age of 21.

Didn’t her, um, partner tell her to shave before testifying?
