Weaver95: limbaugh implied that the ONLY reason women use contraception is to be sluts (or sexually immoral, if you'd prefer to be less inflammatory). A patently false assumption, but one that some of his audience took at face value.


It was more than an implication. He repeatedly scoffed at the notion that birth control could be a public health issue, and actually stated that liberals believe that "pregnancy is a sickness" and this was evidence of an immoral liberal ideology.

I didn't catch his entire rant on the subject. he did spend 3 days on it after all and I just don't have the time or interest to have sat there for the duration. lets just agree that Limbaugh made a number of inaccurate statements and presented them as truth, then proceeded to insult and degrade one particular indivdual on the basis of his previously mentioned false assumptions.

Weaver95: I didn't catch his entire rant on the subject.


Of course not. Neither did I; nobody could. He devoted the majority of nine hours of radio over three days pounding the table and calling this woman a whore. I would listen to a bit, go off to do something, come back an hour or so later, and he would still be at it.

But that one part I did happen to hear.

gilgigamesh: TheDumbBlonde: Ambivalence: If there is one GOOD thing that this entire BS contraception "debate" has brought to light, it's that birth control pills are not only used to prevent pregnancy. They are used to treat debilitating menstrual issues women can experience.

It's medicine, and no one should be denied it. Period.

No, it shouldn't. However, it should not be provided at no cost by religious organizations that find it against their beliefs.

I have a moral objection to paying for the state to administer capital punishment, and to the war in Afghanistan. Why am I not entitled to an exemption for having to pay taxes to fund them?

Religious beliefs are not special. I respect everyone's right to have them, but frankly they mean nothing to me.

I see no reason to elevate some group's religious beliefs above my equally sincere moral convictions, which I am forced to swallow in order to live as a part of this society. If I can suck it up, so can the Catholic church.


Just because you can suck, doesn't make it constitutional for others. YOU KNOW BETTER.

I think I get it: she's suggesting my moral objections don't enjoy the first amendment protections that a religious stance would have. And she's correct. Perhaps not totally fair, but it is what it is.

I don't think there is any basis for claiming a requirement that private employers provide insurance that permits coverage for birth control violates the first amendment, but that's a separate issue.

I think it's been fascinating to watch this story develop. Limbaugh somehow managed to completely derail the whole debate on birth control AND make the GOP look like idiots in the process. Every woman out there is watching the Republicans act like idiots and thinking to themselves 'hey, sometimes the plumbing doesn't work right - WTF are these guys thinking!?'


You're completely forgetting cognitive dissonance at work.

Ie: I take the pill to regulate my plumbing, but you're obviously a whore.

This will have less impact on the right than you would hope, but it will likely mobilize the left if they can remember this time.

THIS. I mean, I can understand the level of boredom a teenager experiences in Lebanon, Kansas (or any random small midwestern town) is pretty high, but you REALLY can't find anything better to do than listen to political radio? Hell, driving a tractor has to be at least 10 times as exciting, right?

HIPAA is a biatch. Letting go of confidential medical information like that without the person's consent is, shall we say, frowned upon.

No, it shouldn't. However, it should not be provided at no cost by religious organizations that find it against their beliefs.


I think there's room to negotiate to what extent it's covered. It doesn't have to be a choice between "zero coverage" and "zero cost". If a person has insurance with a prescription drug plan, it should be required to include contreceptives like birth control pills on that plan. Why is it I can get a TON of prescription drugs for $4 or $10/month, but not BC? BC is a drug. It's medicine, it shouldn't be given this alternate "icky moral conundrum" classification that creates an obstacle for women to obtain it if they want (whether it's to treat a medical condition or prevent pregnancy).

Easier solution, no employer gets a say in what is covered by health insurance and all insurance has to cover birth control.

I don't think regulations apply to school administrators. I mean, just so long as none of them have sex with the kids in school or go on a killing rampage during lunch break, school administrators are largely immune to damn near every law on the books.

Health insurance is generally regulated by state, and I read an interesting article that showed that Georgia (of all places) mandates health insurance cover contreception.

So it's not like this concept doesn't exist on the state level, even in states as red and religious as Georgia.

TheDumbBlonde: cameroncrazy1984: TheDumbBlonde: However, I don't think any woman has the right to get it free from her employer who disallows for religous reasons, even if you do not

They don't get it from their employer, and religious protections are not extended to business owners anyway.

If their employer provides health insurance, and is in fact a religous institution, and is self-insured, guess what? Yes they do.


And that's not what we're discussing here, you blond whore.

We're discussing that Rush Limbonehead's abusive rhetoric has made a little girl cry because she has to take medication for her cramps.

Who gives a rat's ass what you think is right and proper about who should pay for health insurance over this?

what I find incomprehensible is the idea that medication can somehow be 'immoral'. There was a similar rant and rage from religious conservatives over the HPV vaccine too as I recall - curing a form of STD/cancer causing disease was somehow considered immoral by at least a few christians. i'm starting to wonder if curing STDs and/or any reproductive issue(s) at all or of any sort is considered 'sinful' by the more extreme sects of christianity. I just don't understand that viewpoint. curing a disease or using drugs to manage a biological malfunction isn't immoral or sinful.

Yes. It's all Rush Limbaugh's fault.

Didn't read the article, did you.

This. The teens who were doing the bullying actually referenced the guy on the radio.

Even if Rush had never made his slut comments, this very likely would have happened because:

WTF Indeed: Teenage girls are biatchy. News at 11.

Now am I defending Rush or the b*tchy teenage girls attacking this poor girl? No. But, this sh*t happens every day in high school whether some bloated, drug-addicted radio jockey says anything or not. Because, once again:

While this might not be directly Rush Limbaugh's fault, he is encouraging this sort of thing with his idiotic rhetoric.

It's pretty disgusting that the Right completely refuses to see reason and understand that BC is NOT strictly for sex. It's disgusting that a mother would tell her sixteen year old son that every girl on the pill is a "tramp" and its disgusting that Rush would spread such filth and lies.

A girl who is on the pill for medical reasons need not be ashamed.

A girl on the pill so long as she's having safe and responsible sex, also need not be ashamed.

That link made me sadder than the article did.

Here's the deal - I started using the pill for pretty much the same reason as the girl in the article. Now, many years later, I'm *still* on the pill because... well... because I don't want to have an abortion.

I'm 36 years old, don't have kids, don't want to have kids, but am not permitted by the health care system to have my 'tubes tied' because I'm 'too young', and might 'change my mind'. So, I use contraception. If I go off contraception and get pregnant, I'd have an abortion, simple as that. I'm a christian's worst nightmare, and that's fine by me.


NO. Change doctors! Change doctors now! I'm 28 and I've already had one attempt at sterilization (Essure, it turns out I am in a tiny proportion of the population whose anatomy is not compatible), so I'm getting my tubes done (burned, not tied) this summer.

It's not the health care system. IT DEPENDS ON THE DOCTOR. Call other offices, and definitely look into Essure or Adiana!
