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.

Did anyone on that committee ask her WHY she feels that the government shout PAY for her pleasure?

Did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her flowers?

Did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her candy?

Did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her booze?

Did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her dinner?

Did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her some cigarettes for afterwards?

And, dare I ask, did anyone ask her if she wanted the government to buy her a sex worker if she could not find an appropriate partner?

You can’t afford car insurance, YOU DON’T DRIVE.

j bo on February 28, 2012 at 2:29 PM

I don’t know how much it is near Georgetown, but the Depo shot is about $67 with out insurance at any doctors office in Idaho. That gives them 3 months worth of protection. Planned Parenthood also sells the pill for about $20 a month. If she cant afford that, then how in the world can she afford to go to Georgetown?

This is a trumped up issue that only affects the people with a severe entitlement mentality, that they have a right to things they could easily pay for themselves.

bigrichard.small on February 28, 2012 at 2:29 PM

If she was that last word, she’d have enough to afford it without begging Congress for the cash.

And how much does it cost to go to this “prestigious” school? One of the highest in the country. Funny how the liberals take to the Occupy crowd to demean the rich, but turn a deaf ear on them to promote liberal causes. Like I said in the past, Democrats use constituents to their own benefit. When their plans go against them, they are thrown to the wolves. Can anyone say Fast and Furious (amnesty vs. gun control), Gulf of Mexico (Katrina vs. drilling moratorium) and/or war (Iraq/Afghanistan vs. Libya)?

Ugh! This gets me angry. Keep your pants on if you can’t afford birth control.

Are college students going broke because they have a cell phone? How about going broke buying cable? College kids manage to pay for a cell phone and cable but they can’t pay for birth control? That’s idiotic.

terryannonline on February 28, 2012 at 2:23 PM

Don’t forget the amount of alcohol they all manage to consume on a regular basis…wait till they get their contraceptives covered t the men will insist on an alcohol subsidy to loosen them up. New and improved Obamacare now covers foreplay/ LOL!

Is Fluke aware that an aspirin, held firmly between the knees, also works?

And the aspirin is reusable!

GarandFan on February 28, 2012 at 2:29 PM

We’re supposed to believe that adults who attend a prestigious law school for nine months of the year can’t afford $1,000 per year for birth control pills? They should be making thousands of dollars each summer; what are they doing with that money? And if they’re so strapped for cash, they could also get part-time jobs during the school year. With that money, they could either pay for their own birth control out of pocket, or pay higher premiums for an insurance policy of their choosing that fully covers birth control. Most universities require that students have medical insurance; they don’t insist that you purchase it through them. If these women don’t like the terms of the insurance that Georgetown offers, they can choose to buy it elsewhere.

Lefties are supposed to be all about choice, right?

AZCoyote on February 28, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Pregnant out of wedlock? You mean like Stanley Ann? Birth control must not have existed in Hawaii in the early sixties, eh Queenie?

At least Palin’s kids weren’t passed off to Frank Marshall Davis to be molested.

You’re pretty hung up on child molestation, patriot. You must have a very sad past. It’s ok, it’s not your fault.

KeninCT on February 28, 2012 at 2:30 PM

I totally disagree with what Tina had to say, yet I found Ms. Fluke’s testimony just repulsive. Why should the government to provide birth control for law students at a prestigious school? These students will earn an income which far exceeds the median income. Welfare for the rich is repulsive.

Anyway and I mean this seriously, toilet paper is more important to modern medicine than birth control. If we want the government to pay for items related to health for the consumer, I want the government to deliver toilet paper to my door. Just think of the jobs it would provide to the Postal Service! [I bet there are socialists crazy enough to buy this argument.]

I would agree to the government giving discount coupons to the women on food stamps to get birth control. The more food stamps the higher the discount. I would get stridently oppose telling poor women to keep their legs shut.

There is a big difference between the “over $3000″ that she’s claiming and the $900 that I would pay over 3 years.

$2,100 is for actually paying guys to do her.

MNHawk on February 28, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Wait — she’s gay, so she doesn’t need contraceptives to prevent pregnancy. But if the resulting surgery causes early menopause, she’ll never be able to have the precious children she so desires.

I’m having trouble unraveling the above logic…

“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.

Hi Ms. Fluke, I’ve got a suggestion. You are aware that you can fulfill your sexual urges and get paid for it, right?

The private industry has an illustrious, profitable option probably a few blocks down on a street corner in DC. You can work in an operational position part-time and make an exceptional amount of income to pay for your contraception…hey, even better: you can find a manager who would probably mandate it as a requirement for your employment, so it would be included in your “benefits package”.

And it eliminates having boring nights during the week. What a win-win!

The author is a woman and likely has some knowledge of the medical conditions for which estrogen and progestin are used other than for the prevention of pregnancy. The witness related at least two such instances in her full testimony. The pills were not provided in those instances despite the fact they were prescribed for medical conditions. The author either did not understand the testiomony or purposely misrepresents. Neither would surprise.

plewis on February 28, 2012 at 2:09 PM

Fluke says that her friend was prescribed BC for “stopping cysts” for PCOS, and that “without taking the BC a massive cyst formed … and she had to have surgery”

BC doesn’t stop the formation of cysts, in PCOS BC is prescribed to help control the menstrual cycle, help control acne (which only works in 30% of cases), and decrease facial hair. And like Tina said it is only given if you also want to be on birth control, otherwise other medicines treat facial hair and acne without the risk of endometrial cancers. Irregular periods are an inconvenience but not a medical reason to take hormones.
PCOS is treated by lifestyle modification (loose weight), and in some cases diabetic medications, anti-hypertensives and some drugs to stimulate ovulation.

batterup on February 28, 2012 at 2:36 PM

This is actually again quite shocking to think that the females who attend this university think the the college is their to provide them with contreception.

Walmart has a 40 count box of condoms for sale for $11.46 on its web site. Assuming she has sex every day (yeah, right), that’s 27 boxes over 3 years. $309.42. Not $3k.

Wow. I lived in DC when I was young and broke and single, but I remember being able to find the money for birth control. When I was in college I went to the local clinic and got it for free – and this was back in the dark ages of the 1970s.

It’s also pretty easy to find a doctor who will prescribe brith control pills as treatment for other medical conditions so the insurance will cover it.

On the other hand, when I was treated for clinical depression I paid $75 a month for my prescription meds. I guess preventing suicide is not as essential to women’s health as preventing hassles when you want to have sex.

First off, she doesn’t need contraception (based on her look). Second, why doesn’t she make the guy pay for her contraceptives? After all, she has already labeled herself as one of “those” ladies by asking to be paid for “doing it” – all she’s doing now is negotiating who should pay. (apologies to G.B. Shaw).

Where did El Presidente Downgrade get the authority to order private companies to hand out free stuff?

What? Have you been reading the Limbaugh Letter? Don’t listen to drug addicts.

Dear Ms. Fluke, do you know what they call a woman paid to have sex?

In case you might have forgotten, ask Eliot Spitzer.

When I was dating I learned very quickly to determine political affiliation, which is the best indicator of the entitlement mentality. As soon as I found a date was a Democrat or leftist it was, “Check please.”

She hasn’t offered a compelling reason why others should be forced to pay for her birth control.

Someone should ask her.

“It’s difficult for me to pay for it at this point” isn’t a claim on my income, nor is it a valid reason for confiscating the money of another person.

I don’t have a yacht and I want one. Therefore, everyone should pay for one for me.

Yeah, the real world doesn’t work like that, sweetie.

Couldn’t fit it in the budget? Prove it.

There are plenty of law schools that aren’t religious institutions.

If whoring around is more important than learning, go for it.

Just another example of how self-control and discipline have been removed from the last generation. Shame, dignity, integrity, discipline, self-reliance, etc… all being removed to create good little statists.

I just checked on Target’s website. They have a nice long list of $4 meds, and guess what? There’s one form of BC pill there!. That’s around $150 for three years, or another way to look at it, is skip one Starbucks run a month, and your whoopie is paid for.

Liberals: They’re so worthless, that they have to lobby congress in order to get some ointment for their stink. Apparently, she’s not smart enough to solve this problem on her own and only some House panel can do that for her.

Aww. Bless her heart.

Temper, temper dateless one. You are fun though, can’t figure out why you can’t get a date. Oh, wait……never mind.

Wait a minute, Fluke’s a chick? I thought this article was about condoms.

angryed on February 28, 2012 at 2:49 PM

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

OhEssYouCowboys on February 28, 2012 at 2:27 PM

Have you seen that beauty? I think her boyfriends don’t have any standing either, IYKWIMAITYD.

Archivarix on February 28, 2012 at 2:49 PM

Whoa, I know we’ve been raising some entitlement generations, but this one’s a doozy–didn’t know it had gotten this bad.

She has to advertise that she’s open for business in front of Congress and she can’t even turn a profit?

Typical liberal. She couldn’t sell anything without a mandate.

To liberals if the government isn’t taking money from someone else to provide them with “free” stuff they are being denied “access” and their “rights”. They are totally dependent on the state. The. notion of fending for themselves is abhorrent.

Do you know what it costs me to buy pizza for my family? Whenever my family wants to have pizza for dinner, it costs me about $20. If we have pizza twice a month, that’s nearly $500 per year. If my employer doesn’t buy me pizza, then that’s $500 out of my budget, or I just can’t have pizza. I have a right to pizza, and so do my wife and children. Therefore, my employer should be compelled to buy pizza for me.

dude… wtf? no wonder

ted c on February 28, 2012 at 2:53 PM

A few other things:

1. Did her friend’s insurance cover the surgery? I expect so. So…

2. Her friend could still have kids, it’s called “adoption,” plus, didn’t you just say she was gay? So pregnancy isn’t a concern?

3. Women aren’t treated unfairly: men can’t get free contraception either. Hell, men can’t get free condoms at Planned Parenthood, DISCRIMINATION!

4. Friend’s don’t let friends go to Georgetown.

Calling me a…farmer. With devastating comebacks like that no wonder you refer to yourself as “the man.”

Day playa you are!

Miss Kobe, being so young and so principled you are a rare breed among your generation. Heck you are a rare breed among my generation…
