Sandra Fluke: Freeloader and parasite

To The Editor:

Sandra Fluke, the 30-year-old radical feminist activist who Rush Limbaugh wrongly demeaned by calling her “a slut and a prostitute” has, according to the N.Y. Post (3/6), acknowledged that she had enrolled at Georgetown precisely to challenge that Catholic university’s refusal to include contraception in its student health coverage.

The demand by President Obama that religious institutions be forced to pay for health procedures and practices that violate their core beliefs — the essence of the Obamacare mandate — is an affront to the First Amendment. And Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the U.S. Conference of Bishops and others who support religious freedom and strongly oppose this Obama mandate, are addressing this issue publicly and through the courts.

What I am going to focus upon in this letter is not that issue but Sandra Fluke’s arrogant demand that she and other women are entitled to, and should be given, free birth control pills because it is a matter of women’s health.

How, in heaven’s name, does recreational sex become a matter of “women’s health?” That claim is ridiculous, it’s pure nonsense! If Sandra Fluke doesn’t want to get pregnant, birth control pills and other contraceptive methods aren’t essential, all she has to do (at no cost) is abstain from sex. Or, if what she really wants, is to experience the pleasure of an orgasm — she can masturbate. Who the hell is she to demand that others pay for her pleasure?

The next thing you know, Ms. Fluke and other radical feminists will expect free vibrators, free sex toys, and free porno films — all in the name of “women’s health.” What’s happening to this country? We’re becoming a nation of freeloaders and parasites.
