Rush: If we’re gonna pay for birth control, we want something in return

posted at 6:35 pm on March 1, 2012 by Tina Korbe

When Rush Limbaugh called Georgetown law student and so-called contraception activist Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” he immediately took heat for it. What’d the legendary radio host do in response? He didn’t back down, that’s for sure.

Today, Rush sought to clarify his comments, but stood by his fundamental premise: Women who take money for sex are prostitutes, so women who take money for contraception for sex aren’t far behind.

He even went one step further, suggesting that the hard-working Americans who will have to pay higher insurance premiums to finance law students’ sex lives should be able to verify that their dollars-for-contraception are put to good use:

“If we’re going to have to pay for this — then we want something in return, Ms. Fluke,” Limbaugh said. “And that would be the videos of all this sex posted online so we can see what we’re getting for our money.”

Limbaugh attempted to clarify his comments and explain the rationale for his derisive labeling of Fluke.

“Now what did I say?” Limbaugh asked. “I said if we’re paying for this, it makes these women sluts, prostitutes. What else could it be? We are buying it.”

Rush’s comments are intentionally provocative, but they also underscore the point that women and men who aren’t sexually active rarely have a need for contraception. Others have made the point he’s making — that if we’re gonna pay for birth control, we want something in return — in a less over-the-top way by pointing out that, if we’re going to pay for our neighbor’s birth control, then we should have a say in our neighbor’s sex life. How does that newly-coined saying go? “If you don’t want Uncle Sam in your bedroom, don’t ask Uncle Sam to pay for what goes down in your bedroom.”

Again, contraception is not a necessity and fertility is not a disease. As plenty of folks have pointed out, contraception is, in fact, impossible to “insure,” as it’s impossible to “insure” against an expense that a person knows for a fact he or she will incur. In that case, it’s just an expense — and the person who’s gonna incur it should budget for it.

The irony is that not that many college students are having sex. The feminists want to cultivate an image that the media laps up of a sex-crazed culture on campuses, but check out this post for a good dose of reality:

http://www.hookingupsmart.com/2012/02/28/hookinguprealities/sexual-statistics-review-session/

While a decent majority of college students have had sex, most of the sex takes place between a small minority of both males and females.

Note also that there are more male virgins than female virgins. Hmm…

I’d like to see the democrats come out and admit it, finally. Admit that their base is filled with stupid, lazy deadbeats that are lacking in any sound/moral judgement, convinced that “welfare benefits” is the best they can do in life, and unwilling to fork over $9 a month for birth control, and are generally people who take from society rather than contribute to society.

That is, in effect, what they are saying. Their base is just too dumb to make a $9 a month decision, so “we” need to do it for them.

BruthaMan on March 1, 2012 at 7:12 PM

The GOP would do well to dump him and Mark Levin, and give Mark Steyn his own show.

Mark Steyn–my hero–is a genius; the thinking person’s conservative.

Limbaugh is just pathetic, if you ask me. I can’t listen to him for more than 5 minutes.

mountainaires on March 1, 2012 at 7:01 PM

lol! Five minutes and you know what Rush is all about!

The GOP doesn’t give anyone radio shows. This is a free country, and radio shows are for-profit, and not provided by political parties, but by businesses. Rush Limbaugh’s radio show has nothing to do with the Republican Party, and they have no control over what he says. Your disdain for Rush doesn’t make you intelligent, or informed.

Nice hateful rant though!

Probably what happened at Rush’s house is some NOW hag threw a box of tampons in the yard. A real attempt by say a Chicago mob pro wouldn’t be found until after, and then just traces at most.

Once again Rush can’t seem to get to the real heart of the issue – i.e. the federal government shouldn’t be forcing ANYONE to pay for ANYTHING.

He loses EVERYONE by pulling this crap which only dates him somewhere to the 1950′s and pisses normal people off. His schtick or whatever might be that he doesn’t care about women being offended, but it is harmful to conservatives.

He makes no attempt to make an intellectual argument about federal government compulsion, and instead attacks them as sluts, which forwards the notion this is wrong purely on moral grounds. It is not.

He just wants attention for himself and he got it.

Let me guess. You can’t read. Or unable to think nor process information. I’ll take the second one, although seems all apply.

When a woman is PAID (or in this case re-imbursed) to have sex, then yes, she is a SLUT and/or PROSTITUTE.

Read as many times as required for your single digit IQ (an overrating by any measure) to somehow grasp the concept.

I demand forced vasectomies/sterilization for all liberals, will be happy to pay for it. If that is in the RomneyCare, then I am all for it, its worth our time and money to endure it for a couple of decades. If these morons cannot understand what Planned Parenthood is all about and why it was founded in the first place (eugenics anyone?) there is no reason to deny these idiots the favor, let them abort themselves out of our lives. Once and for all.

In the last 18 hours:

1. Brietbart drops dead.
2. Sheriff Joe announces that his Cold Case team found that the “birth certificate” 0bama released was forged.
3. Bomb squad called to Rush Limbaugh’s house.

Rush is just dead set on having Obama for another term. Most of you are just dead set on going all with it because you’re too stupid to see how he manipulates news cycles to keep topics that hurt Republicans going.

AYNBLAND on March 1, 2012 at 7:46 PM

Wow. I didn’t realize that Rush had so much pull with Reuters, APF, UPI, The AP, the New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, GWS, and all the other newspapers and wire services out there. I thought he commented on the news. He must have far more influence than I ever imagined he had./

You’re right. That WAS bland. Guess 1000 pages was too much for you.

The best thing about this thread is that there are no posts from the Teenage Mormon Ninja Turtles, telling us how fabulous Willard is.

What?? The full beckground info wasn’t in the talking points memo??

WryTrvllr on March 1, 2012 at 7:52 PM

I’d like to see the democrats come out and admit it, finally. Admit that their base is filled with stupid, lazy deadbeats that are lacking in any sound/moral judgement, convinced that “welfare benefits” is the best they can do in life

True, the average Georgetown law school student is lazy and stupid. Great call.
Rush is making one point to electorate clear- you detest women on birth control. Great way to win an election by insulting a large part of it.

“Ezra Klein? Ezra… please report to talking points room number 12. You’re number 3 is no longer effective. Ezra Klein?”

Say that with a booming, echoing voice.

It worked for Obama in 2008.

eh,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onan

sorry, long time since I read a bible, I will be explicit . my reference to onanism was in the sense of masturbation only(wish I thought was the only meaning). not as contraception method.

I really was completely ignorant of the etymology of the word.

If only Nixon was alive to see a Georgetown Law student called a slut prostitute…

Guys who get Viagra will ostensibly be giving some woman somewhere something at some time in the future, if you catch my drift. ;)

More data points, folks, and arrange them however you want.

1. Trump raises the call for 0bama’s birth certificate to fever pitch.

2. 0bama releases a birth “certificate” riddled with immediately visible problems.

3. Osama bin Laden killed a few days later, completely erasing the “certificate,” and examination thereof, down the memory hole.

And then, to recap:

4. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a news conference scheduled to release the results of his Cold-Case investigation into the 0bama “birth certificate.”

5. Brietbart collapses and dies.

6. Arpaio news conference overlooked in conservative blogosphere, due to Brietbart death.

7. Bomb squad called to Rush Limbaugh’s house.

Wow, the news sure is full of major happenings involving conservatives today.

Arpaio makes his long-awaited announcement on any other day, and it’s news.

Released March 1, 2012?

It’s down the memory hole, along with the original birth “certificate.”
