Contraception Debate Is No Fluke

“Contraception is working just fine.  Leave it alone.” ~Mitt Romney answering George Stephanopoulos’s questions regarding States having the right to ban contraception during the New Hampshire GOP presidential debate

President Obama and his allies in the mainstream media completely fabricated the recent contraception controversy in order to distract America from its real problems which are likely to get worse between now and November 6.

Rather than talk about almost 25 million working age Americans without jobs, Obama wants America to be afraid that his Republican challenger would ban birth control if elected.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, formerly President Bill Clinton’s Communications Director, went to great lengths during the New Hampshire GOP presidential debate to get a sound bite of Mitt Romney saying that States have the right to ban birth control in early January. 

In November of last year, Obama told then Archbishop, now Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, the leader of the Catholic Church in the United States, that he “get most of what he wanted” regarding contraception as the White House was hashing out the implentation of ObamaCare.

By early February, Obama changed his mind,betrayed Dolan and shifted the national debate away from the economy and on to issues that were “working just fine” —  birth control and religious freedom — when he announced the ObamaCare regulations that requires all employers, including those affiliated with religious institutions, to provide health care that includes the cost of contraceptives.

Romney avoided the trap in January, but Rick Santorum jumped into it with both feet in February, as did Republicans in the House and Senate.

Rush Limbaugh did the congressional Republicans a favor by drawing attention to himself, and away from the Blunt Amendment which was never going to pass, with his crass remarks about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law School student  who is as much a part of this Obama change the subject gambit as Stephanopoulos is.

But Limbaugh did Obama a bigger favor. The President called Fluke yesterday to thank her for speaking out for women’s rights.  Now he’s framing the contraception debate as a women’s right’s issue.

Fluke is not a 23 year old coed who can’t afford birth control as originally reported in the media.  She’s a 30 year old women’s rights activist.  It was no fluke that the Democrats wanted her to testify before congress.  She’s likely to be the President’s 2012 Obama girl.

    If there is even a kernel of truth in this, that the President made a strategic move, all the more reason to give him 4 more years.

    Imagine this crop of Republican fancy lads dealing with the Putins of the world.

    And we can see the skid marks as you back off from little Ricky and his homeskoolin bull.

    This issue is such a farce. $5 gas prices, Iran imploding in front of us, an unbalanced budget, a massive health care bill destroying the health care marketplace, etc. and all the Democrats can do is make birth control the issue? Pathetic. Whats’s the matter — they don’t want to run the ads of pushing grandma over the cliff in her wheelchair as a part of the MediScare plan? And Putin would make mince meat out of Obama much like the Chinese already have. I can see Obama now bowing down to Putin in Moscow as he kisses his ass too. Wake up people.

    I am NOT anti contraception and do not think it should be banned.

    What I don’t understand is how anyone can think that someone else should pay for their contraception. That is just mind boggling to me. Talk about an extreme position.

    The entitlement mindset that I want it so the government should make sure I have it is killing this Country.

    Take a look at your health insurance policies and it is a fair bet many of them cover rounds of expensive fertility treatments. If the Church has an issue with church run institutions offering birth control in its health insurance policies, it should also speak out against covering fertility treatments, which are also against Church doctrine. I wonder why the Church never makes an issue of this. Personally, I object to subsidizing those who want children, or often just more children, and very often because they have delayed marriage till an older age when THEY can afford to provide for those medically created offspring.

    Talk about an entitlement mindset!

    So, MLaffey…its ok to pay for Viagra..but not birth control. A little mysogynistic by any chance?

  6. Tom Stokes said at 8:46 pm on March 4th, 2012:

    Let’s be clear – this has never been about contraception – it is about government overreach under this far left president and his cronies.

    It is about government telling people to pay for the “recreational” activities of others. It is about government telling religious institutions that they must pay for abortion (“morning after”) pills. This is not just a Catholic issue.

    If you oppose more governmental control over our lives, your choice is clear to support anybody but BHO.

  7. Mlaffey said at 7:30 am on March 5th, 2012:

    Exactly where did I say it was OK for the government to mandate insurance companies must pay for Viagra? I don’t see that statement anywhere in my comment. For the record if the government mandated viagra coverage it would be at least equally as offensive.

    Now can I ask you a question? Are you always this much of a Jackass?

  8. Rick Ambrosia said at 11:57 am on March 5th, 2012:

    Well MLaffey, Viagra is a prescription drug covered under most insurance plans. Too bad YOU are too much of a jackass to read between the lines.

  9. TR said at 1:44 pm on March 5th, 2012:

    Oh! I know the answer to that question.

  10. Rick Ambrosia said at 2:13 pm on March 5th, 2012:

    Put your hand down TR….no one’s going to call on you to answer any questions. LOL….

    Fluke is an out-and-out fraud, and Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center has posted a tape that shows what a farce the woman’s testimony was:
