Fluke: Birth Control Can Save the Economy!
Truth Revolt ^ | 1/25/2014 | Trey Sanchez

Posted on 01/25/2014 3:43:36 PM PST by markomalley

In reaction to Mike Huckabee's speech at the Republican National Committee winter meeting Wednesday, contraception advocate Sandra Fluke teamed with Planned Parenthood to offer her insights on how birth control helps women prevent one of life's biggest economic burdens -- children.

Fluke has a message for Huckabee and other "for-profit corporations" who want to deny their employees access to birth control:

Women who use birth control do not have an “overactive libido.” We are not looking for a handout from “Uncle Sugar” to score a contraceptive fix. We are not sluts.

We are just regular people trying to take care of ourselves medically and financially.

Not only does Fluke believe that birth control helps women financially, but mentally as well:

Birth control is vitally important to women’s physical and mental health, since it enables them to plan their pregnancies and manage their lives, expanding their opportunities.

And it can single-handedly fix the nation's economic woes:

Access to birth control is not just a health issue; it’s an economic issue. When women can control their lives with birth control, they can help the economy. It allows them to take better care of themselves and their families, support themselves financially, complete their education, and keep or get a job.

Slyly, the term "birth control" is now being used as a euphemism for abortion. For Fluke, and other leftist feminists like her, a pesky fetus is an avoidable "health issue" that can be cured by using birth control or even emergency contraception, which is essentially a high dose of "birth control."

In doing so, women's mental health can be improved, women can finally get a job or finish school, finally manage their lives, expand their opportunities and most importantly, impact the United States economy. Oh, but they'll need the government to provide all that birth control. Whatever did they do before it was all free?

My goodness, how did the economy ever manage to grow at all before the birth control mandate in Obamacare? She’s just sooooo smart! Ever notice just how smart some of these liberals are? And their brilliance cuts across so many different subjects. Sandra Fluke is just sooooo smart.

Dear Sandra,

Try harder to keep your ham-wallet closed and some medical and financial issues may take care of themselves.

FTA: "...corporations who want to deny their employees access to birth control..."

Since condoms are already available at virtually every grocery store, drugstore, convenience store, and truckstop at prices lower than a candy bar, and for free--- by the handful --- from County Health Departments and Student Wellness Centers, and publicly-funded clinics, there could hardly be more "access" f they were in every bag of M&M's as well.

And with high school and college students regularly lectured about condom use for at least the past 25 years, and with over 725 million dollars annually in condom sales in the United States alone--- 65 million people in the USA have STD's, and the rate of HPV infection among US women is roughly 80%.

When Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders was Arkansas Health Director from 1987 to 1992, she pushed condoms by every means possible, including in 24 high schools. The results were predictable. The teen pregnancy rate in Arkansas rose 17 percent between 1989 to 1992, the syphilis rate among teenagers rose 130 percent, and the HIV rate rose 150 percent."

So we've known this for a long time.

Getting a clue?

When women can control their lives with birth control, they can help the economy.

In the old Soviet Union, parents could put their newborns in nurseries, and then into school. Women could then get so much important work done, like increasing the production of fan belts.

If only we were so enlightened.

I might consider personally paying for her birth control. It would be, in my opinion, a service to humanity to prevent her from breeding.

so here is a major chapter in the lib play book: encourage abortions, birth control, limit health care to the elderly.... In other words - limit population growth to save the earth and grow the economy.

As long as they are encouraging unlimited immigration, this like most other liberal idiology, is total BS.

Women who use birth control do not have an “overactive libido.”

Women who use birth control pills have a suppressed libido, since the hormones (often) prevent ovulation and mimic pregnancy. (Spend some time on Free Republic. You'll find every man there never has sex.)

We are not looking for a handout from “Uncle Sugar” to score a contraceptive fix.

Right, you just want Uncle Sugar to force your employer or educational institution to give you the contraceptive "fix."

We are not sluts.

That's probably true in most cases. However, whether it's a married woman or a promiscuous college student, there's no reason she can't pay cash, or her regular prescription copayment if her employer chooses to provide this coverage.

but no, all they give us is whatever stupid garbage spews forth from this wench’s oriface, or Chris Matthew’s, or Mooshell’s, or Michael Moore’s.....or Abbas’s, or ???

it is not helpful. it is not informative. it is not even entertaining most the time...

Sandra Fluke’s sperm donor aka “boyfriend”....

Adam Mutterperl is the son of one of the most well-connected leftist Jewish families on the East Coast, with ties to neo-Marxist Brandeis University as decades old donors… and whose father, Bill Mutterperl, worked directly for Paul Volcker, one of Obama’s pals, advisors, and Keynesian “stimulus” bill architects.

In addition to the Mutterperl’s extensive history within the Jewish socialist activist/political world, and their generational wealth, they’re still doing what they can to help the 99%.

Fluke was being represented by Anita Dunn’s public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker. Dunn, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, served as White House Communications Director in 2009..

http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/10/o’reilly-sandra-flukes-boyfriend-son-of-democratic-stalwart-william-mutterperl/

“For six days, we have been telling you that the 30-year-old Georgetown law student has become a major player in the presidential election,” O’Reilly said during his “Talking Points Memo” segment. “Last night, we reported that she is now being handled pro bono, for free, by the PR firm SKDKnickerbocker, which is good, because Sandra doesn’t have enough money to buy birth control pills, as we know. But there is more to Sandra’s story than just contraception. Right now, she’s on spring break in California with her boyfriend, who is the son of Democratic stalwart William Mutterperl. He has made at least 56 donations to Democratic candidates or organizations. Nothing wrong with that — I’m just pointing it out.”

O’Reilly then questioned whether Fluke was receiving some sort of backing in exchange for her advocacy. Despite claiming that it is financially taxing for her to afford contraception, Fluke is somehow able to travel across the country and make numerous media appearances.

O’Reilly also noted the timing of Fluke’s rise. The law student came on the scene right when the Obama administration was being criticized for a controversial contraceptive mandate requiring some religious institutions to supply contraception against their will.

“Of course, that’s when Sandra Fluke suddenly appeared — popping up at congressional hearings, showing up in the media,” he said. “Polls show President Obama’s poll numbers among women now on the rise, and he has Ms. Fluke to thank [for] that. If you don’t pay close attention to this story, it looks like President Obama is simply helping out a young woman under siege, but again, that’s not what’s going on here.”

O’Reilly blamed progressives like Fluke for pushing for a “nanny state” and causing the national debt to rise.

If her boyfriend could find something big to stuff down her throat it would both save us taxpayers a ton of money paying for this nympho’s birth control.. And save us all from having to hear her stupid commentaries on public affairs. Or something like that. Sometimes an imaginative action can go a lonnnnng ways.
