Speaking at a Women for Obama event in Denver, Colorado, President Obama touted free contraception offered to women by the Affordable Care Act. The president was introduced by contraception activist Sandra Fluke, who became the center of a controversy earlier this summer, after she spoke out against Catholic colleges that did not cover contraceptives.
Obama reminded the audience that because of his reforms, insurance plans were covering the full cost of contraceptives, which he said was crucial for womens health because it was used not only for family planning, but it prescribed by doctors to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.
And its good for our health care system in general because we know that the overall cost of care is lower when women have access to contraception services, Obama added.
Obama explained that his administration worked with people who held strong religious views on contraception.
We worked with Catholic hospitals and universities to find a solution that protects both religious liberty and a womans health, Obama insisted. (But in fact, over 40 prominent Catholic organizations, including Notre Dame University is suing the Obama administration to block the HHS contraceptive mandate.)
The fact is that nearly 99 percent of women have relied on contraception at some point. Obama continued. And more than half of all women between the ages of 18-34 have struggled to afford it.
Were changing that, Obama proclaimed.
He’s going back to beat that dead horse? What an a$$. Doesn’t he have anything substantive to campaign on? He’s a dispicable POS.
Well, I will say this. Since Obama is screwing everyone in the country he ought to give all of us some protection.
Yeah. FREE. With our money.
(Shaking head in disgust and sadness....)
Great graphic, I love it.
Me too and I just got it. ;-)
The Pimp and the Pump
That’s about right, the usual crowd of nutcase supporters for Obama, the America destroyer POTUS. Ain’t gonna see no gigantic, massive crowds this time around. And....you will not see many Democrats running for office campaigning with Obama, who is radioactive and toxic for all office seeking Democrats!!!
Wasn’t it MLK who said, “Free contraceptive,free contraceptives, thank God almighty we have free conceptives at last”
Wasnt it MLK who said, Free contraceptives at last,free contraceptives at last, thank God almighty we have free contraceptives at last
Family planning thats the same line Margaret Sanger used to convince blacks that eugenics was good for them. I guess good line never get old when they work.
By “worked with” he meant “sued and forced with government mandates”.
Show the poor student how much you care. Donate a condom to Ms. Fluke, since she can't afford her own.
Sandra, we do care and are willing to foot the bill to keep you from reproducing.
Just quit screwing the taxpayer.
