There are lots of things not covered by insurance companies and a lot of meds that are not covered. Maybe she and others should think about the consiquencies of sleeping around. Let's all so remember she goes to one of the most expensive universities in the country, if she can afford the fees, I would think she can afford her birth control. This goes for all females attending Geogetown. If they are on scholarships then they already are getting a free or discounted ride, so they should be able to get their BC somewhere other than from their insurance company. I think they are lucky to have any insurance available to them. When we were in college all we had was the student health center.

It would be nice if you dittoheads actually looked to someone beyond El Rushbo for your facts so you could appear other than stupid by repeating the same silliness over and over. Fluke was talking about birth control pills for medical purposes...like ovarian cysts, etc.
Or do you think that ovarian cysts are not a medical problem maybe? Why would they not be covered by health insurance?

Yeah, I dislike Imus which means I like him a lot more than Rush.

Just pointing out all the posters here that are no better than him....on both sides of the political spectrum of course.

Since you wrote it out I really don't see much difference

That being said I think at times we all say things in the moment of expressing ourselves. Come on, all of you have to admit there's things that you type or say and it wasn't quit right hours later.

This is been blown out and it's mostly the lefts way of making birth control their voting message. Now all of a sudden some women think birth control is going to be obsolete.

We're talking oral contraceptives, right? May I fill you in on a little secret, here? You don't actually take more pills the more sex you're having. No, really.

Yeah, the problem is that when it comes to spotting divisive hate mongering you have 20-20 vision in your right eye but wear a patch over your left.

Rush is the most popular radio show host....ever. He helps many people form opinions on issues usually pushed by the liberal media complex, which includes Fox News. You cannot stop his influence among Americans.
What's wrong with these people. Why do they need help. Can't they form their own opinions like most intelligent people do. That says a lot about his audience.

Whoa, now wait just a minute here ... you said "divisive hate mongering?"

Have you not listened to your President, Mr. Barack Obama? Have you not listened to Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid?

Have you not listened to your "Occupy" friends, who think nothing of trashing public and private property in the name of "free speech" (which it isn't).

Were you around during the Bush years? Are you aware of what you and your friends called him? A war criminal? And worse. Some even called for his death.

Have you heard of the Koch Brothers? Have you heard them demonized by the left, and even your President? Oh, you haven't?

What Rush said was nothing. Nothing at all.

Imus hits it out of the park calling out Limbaugh as being "an insecure pig" "pill poppin' pinhead" "he has no guts, he's a punk" and "he's a coward"

Don Imus Calls Rush Limbaugh An 'Insincere Pig' For 'Vile, Personal Attack' On Sandra Fluke

Glad to see there is at least some sane people on the right still around

And Don Imus should know.

Hopefully more do and get Limbaugh thrown off the air
You really are so strongly convinced that left is the only direction that you can't see that people are fighting over being the newest sponsors, right? I feel very sorry for you and the way you fail to reason.
