Tina Korbe notes that a young woman of low morals and even lower dignity complained to Congress that she and her Hoya sistren are suffering terribly from a lack of subsidized contraception. Excerpt:
“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.
What Fluke is arguing, then, is that her fellow law students have a right to consequence-free sex whenever, wherever. Why, exactly, especially if it costs other people something? When I can’t pay for something, I do without it. Fortunately, in the case of contraception, women can make lifestyle choices that render it unnecessary.
At one point, Fluke mentions a friend who felt “embarrassed and powerless” when she learned her insurance didn’t cover contraception. Can you imagine how proud and empowered that same friend would be if she learned she has the ability to resist her own sexual urges? We can only assume she doesn’t know that because Fluke and she both labor under the illusion that contraception is a medical necessity.
Yeah you right, Tina Korbe. Is there anything more embarrassing than going whining to Congress — to Congress! — about the gross injustice of your Catholic university not subsidizing your extramarital sex life? Is this what bourgeois feminism has come to? The sense of entitlement here galls.
