CNSNews.com) Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month's supply of birth control pills for just $9.
Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law.
Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school," Fluke testified before Pelosi's panel.
"For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, thats practically an entire summers salary," Fluke testified. "Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.
Just last week, a married female student told me she had to stop using contraception because she couldnt afford it any longer, Fluke testified. Women employed in low-wage jobs without contraceptive coverage face the same choice. You might respond that contraception is accessible in lots of other ways. Unfortunately, that's not true.
On Tuesday, Fluke spoke at an event at the U.S. Capitol in celebration of womens history month. After the event, CNSNews.com asked Fluke: Were you aware of the Target store thats 3 miles from Georgetown Law that sells a months supply of birth control pills for $9 a month without insurance coverage? Were you aware of that?
Fluke said: So, Im not familiar with specific department store policies. I know that some generic forms of contraception are less expensive than others and that that has been widely reported. But what has not been widely reported is that many women cannot use those forms of contraception.
Women have different types of medical needs that require much more expensive forms, she said. One woman contacted me. She was very, very upset that that quote was being emphasized because she has a genetic condition that requires her to use contraception that costs $1,500.
So, this is medicine, said Fluke. Its not one-size-fits-all, and while its great that some women can access more affordable contraception, contraception needs to be accessible and affordable for all of the women who need all of the different kinds.

CNSNews.com had initially reported on Mar. 5 that the pharmacy at the Target 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus offers a month's supply of Tri-Sprintec, the generic form of the birth-control pill Ortho Tri-Cyclen, for $9 for people without health insurance coverage for the pills.
In addition, CNSNews.com confirmed that a CVS pharmacy only two blocks from the Georgetown Law campus sells a months supply of the same generic birth control pills for $33.
Tri-Sprintec is an FDA-approved prescription drug. The Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) says it is for "prevention of pregnancy" and treatment of moderate acne in women 15 and older.
Sandra Fluke Says She Didn’t Know Target Sells Birth Control Pills for $9.... Her bachelor’s degree is in Sexuality.
***Not only is she a slut, she’s a dumb slut.

A degree in Sexuality is about as worthless as one in basket weaving. This female is about as dumb as a sack of marbles, although she is of one mind when it comes to sexuality.
What would a typical day be like in a sexuality class of 30 or so males with Miss Fluck as instructor? How would she be able to help them with their individual assignments? Individually?
It’s no wonder Fluck has taken on the pallor of an evening street walker.
Oh, and another thing you unchivilrous lout! How dare you call the highly promiscuous Miss Fluck a slut. Why you’re no better than that Rush Limbaugh. Just because a 30-year-old- professional student enjoys constant flucking doesn’t make her an object of ridicule.
Miss Fluck studied Flucking and has the degree to prove it.
