“Reproductive Rights Activist” Sandra Fluke came before a Congressional Committee at the request of Nancy Pelosi to state she is horrified at the prospect of the contraception mandate not being forced on her religious institution Georgetown University. Going so far as to say that her female co-eds will go broke paying for their own contraception.
“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.
We did the math and according to Amazon.com, you can buy 1,000 condoms for $120. This means each condom costs about $0.12. We found that this means a student would have to have sex 8,333 times a year to spend $1,000. If you broke this down to a daily allotment it would require having sex 22.8 times a day. Not sure exactly how the .8 would work, but regardless that certainly doesn’t seem like a “medical necessity” for college students?
If a student was planning on using birth control, someone should inform them Target near campus sells a monthly supply for just $9, or about the price of one drink in a Georgetown bar.
We aren’t asking for or expecting liberals to change their lifestyle choices, but what kind of arrogance would provoke Washington to think that a Nun should be forced to pay for a student to have sex over 20 times a day?
Don’t expect nuns to sit by quietly when their faith is threatened. They have already begun to fight back against the unconstitutional mandate.
