Rush is at least 98% stale air.

Calling a woman who testified before congress a slut on the air... I'd say that it is shocking or offensive if it wasn't so appallingly uncreative. I mean, it is such a token and unimpressive insult. "You don't see a problem with state sponsored birth control? You must really like penis hardy harr harr harrrr!" This is little more than an angry old man desperate for attention, in my view.

FACT: It is actually cheaper in the long run to pay for contraception, thanks to the exceptionally high costs associated with unintended pregnancies.

So, actually, by paying for some lady to fornicate more safely... we end up saving money. That is the answer to your question.

Not to mention that birth control pills are used for various health reasons, but then again everyone would know that already if they actually paid attention to Ms. Fluke's testimony, instead of just rejecting it without even hearing it.

I just think that what Rush did is a clear example how religion or religious organizations have taken it to demonizing women in the eyes of the gerneral public. I mean if he were to have made the same comment of a person of color he would be apologizing so fast he would become a liberal. Yet because he made it towards a woman and in defense of Religious organizations that want to be except from regular business laws in their own business(again at a business not a church or what not) Then it is for some reason ok?? That is where I see a problem with it.

Also, what Rush and gang do not seem to understand is that the amount of birth control pills you take (and thus the cost of the treatment) is not proportional with how much sex you have. You can have sex once a month or literally be in a constant state of having sex every minute of every day and the cost of your birth control pills would be the exact same. It's a "once a day" thing, not a "once before and after every time you have sex" thing. It would help for these people to understand what they are criticizing before criticizing it.

RRR:

The other item that whompero fails to comprehend is the matter of unwanted children and who pays for them. Let's see: birth control...ah...inexpensive. A child...very expensive for the public if the woman has little money. We cannot watch it starve to death just because there are Christian freakos in the world who want to deprive people of birth control.

Oh bless you, Rachel Rebecca Riordan, for saying what I've been scrolling down to say. Yes!! Men are "paid" to have sex when insurance covers Viagra, but that sacred sperm must have its day, so contraception or - gasp - abortion must not be allowed, must be deemed evil and demonic and anti-Christian and whatever else it can be called to keep women in their proper "place". Thank you, thank you!

Of course, Rush doesn't place any onus on the men having sex with women, he forgets the women who need birth control for medical reasons, and he ignores married women.

You seem unaware that a woman can be placed on BCP for more than one reason. Sandra Fluke herself has an ovarian cyst the size of a golf ball.

Your idiotic remark might have the slightest validity if various insurance companies and Medicare didn't pay for Viagra, which has one purpose. So you object to insurance companies "paying women to have sex" (completely untrue) but have no problem with insurance companies paying for erectile dysfunction medications and vasectomies. Hypocrisy, your name is el whompero."

Yes, the agenda is clear. They hate abortion and they hate contraception. They worship the zygote so much so that they keep trying to give the fertilized egg the same rights as a person, but they consistently vote against family planning, funding for assistance for single mothers, education about STDs, and free condoms. The bottom line is that it isn't about children or fetuses, it's about controlling women.

You're most welcome, Nancy. If there is any upside to this, it is that the double standard hypocrisy is on full display.

Very, very interesting discussion, Michael. Read it twice, then linked to my Facebook page. I don't entirely agree with you, but you make some excellent points.

But Limbaugh is still a filthy, misogynistic pig. Be honest, do you really think, "...and if a female commentator replied by saying "Buy your own condoms, super stud, or keep it zipped"..." is comparable to what Limbaugh said about Fluke? Seriously? Did you actually listen to him?

Does anyone know what the male synonym for "slut" is? It sure isn't "stud."

Excellent point, Rachel. As usual.

You hit the nail on the head, Rachel Rebecca Riordan.

These jerks who are mostly men want to deny women coverage for contraception. They amaze me. Do they really all want to be Mike Duggars and have 21 children? Or even Rick Santorums and have seven?

I don't see much concern on their part for the child once it's born -- only for the "pre-born," as they call it while it's still in the womb.
