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

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 unprotected sex about three times a day every day to incur that kind of expense.

Why the assumption that you HAVE to have pre-marital sex?

hmmm, what is the tuition for 3 years of law school at Georgetown for each of these promiscuous skanks?

And who is paying for that?

exactly

Shouldn’t asthma inhalers and cancer treatment, glasses and dantistry, be “free”?
What do people pay for that over 3 years of law school?

I think based on the math, a person would have to have sex 23 times a day, seven days a week to spend $3,000 on condoms.

Where can I sign up to attend Georgetown?

So on a cost / benefit analysis, it’s really only $1,500 since there is a sharing of the benefit. As such the cost should be shared as well.

If they can’t afford a $9 pack of birth control pills from target, how the hell can they afford a law degree? Perhaps, they should try a baby aspirin between the knees. That’s cheap.

The cheapest number applies only if they would pay it themselves.
If it's "free", i.e. someone else is paying for it, then of course they will go for the most expensive option.

“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time...They therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure and which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”

— Charles Carroll, U.S. Senator and signer of the Declaration of Independence

“[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man’s life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few.”

— John Adams, An Essay on Man’s Lust for Power, 1763

“Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens.”

— George Washington

“Peace, prosperity, liberty and morals have an intimate connection.”

— Thomas Jefferson to George Logan, 1813

“Political interest [can] never be separated in the long run from moral right.”

— Thomas Jefferson

Can’t they charge for their services to help pay for the exhorbitant costs. You know, pass them on to the consumer. That is how their compatriots on the street do business. They should be required to take a free enterprise economics course first.

Yup.

Another Ivy League puke with an agenda:

Sandra Fluke was part of a group that accompanied Professor Deborah Epstein to observe hearings in the Domestic Violence Unit of the D.C. Superior Court during Orientation Week. She found it a terrific opportunity - since before coming to Georgetown, this Cornell University graduate spent five years working for Sanctuary for Families, a New York-based nonprofit aiding victims of domestic violence.

"Last year, we formed a statewide coalition to expand access to family court in New York," says Fluke, explaining that a person who sought a protective order in civil court in that state was previously out of luck if, for example, that person had merely lived with his or her abuser without being married or without having a child in common.

"You had no option for a civil protective order so you had to get one through criminal court, which required a higher burden of proof and you had to wait until you'd been the victim of a crime . so we successfully changed the law," Fluke said. "It was a moving experience and definitely one of the reasons I decided to go to law school."

What I don't understand is why the EFF do you go to a Catholic school if you're going to rail against the tenets of Catholicism? It's like going to the Naval Academy and wanting to change everything about the US Navy.

-——And why the insistance on turning a Catholic University into just another state university?-——

There are about a dozen truly Catholic colleges left in America, and Georgetown isn’t one of them.

The bishops’ failure to strip these colleges of the title, “Catholic,” is comparable to their failure to excommunicate pseudo-Catholics like Pelosi.

You are assuming that Georgetown still supports the tenets of Catholicism. I wonder if that is still true.

If you are having sex with contraceptives, you are having sex for recreational purposes. If health insurers are forced to pay for contraception, they being are forced to pay for recreational equipment.

Therefore, I should be able to have my health insurance company pay for my tennis racket, golf clubs, and skis. After all, those sports improve my physical health, which reduces my overall medical costs, right?

Reducto ad absurdum — at least for now.

You are right to be a bit baffled because it is not understandable using normal logic. Using twisted liberal illogic, these types deliberately try to infiltrate institutions that used to be Catholic, or conservative, or any institition that still upholds normal family values.

Another Ivy League puke with an agenda.. You nailed that right!They have an agenda. It is truly unnerving how successful they are becoming.

Permit me to add to this statement: if this woman ever got laid by A MALE, it would be a FLUKE. She has lesbian written all over her - she’s doing this to advertise herself - not because she needs the pills herself.

The woman pays because it was women of the past who thought birth control via the woman was the way to go. You know, the way to freedom and the way to control of their own body, and the way to be equal with men. When this happened, the honor and virtue of the woman was destroyed. The truth is the woman had control before bc pills, total control. They gave away their power and now want the rest of us to pay for their immorality.

Note to Georgetown students: Target sells the pill for nine bucks a month

Birth control pills can be purchased for as low as $9 per month at a pharmacy near Georgetown’s campus. According to an employee at the pharmacy in Washington, D.C.’s Target store, the pharmacy sells birth control pills–the generic versions of Ortho Tri-Cyclen and Ortho-Cyclen–for $9 per month. “That’s the price without insurance,” the Target employee said. Nine dollars is less than the price of two beers at a Georgetown bar.

It strains credulity to believe that a single Georgetown student can’t afford $9 per month for birth control. But this is the justification the mandate’s supporters give for forcing religious institutions to purchase insurance that violates their religious and moral.

These law students ought to audit an economics 101 class.
