Democrat Kabuki Theater presents: “Women’s Healthcare”
Posted by Lech Dharma on March 5, 2012
The goal of the Democrats’ most recent Kabuki theater production—starring Nancy Pelosi and Sandra Fluke (with a final act appearance by Barry O)—was two-fold:
Their first aim was to paint a false picture of Republicans as being misogynists—while presenting themselves as the savior of women. Secondly, the Obamacrats wanted to bolster election-year support for the unConstitutional—and economically-destructive—ObamaCare Act that they had shoved down the throat of America.
As I listened to “law student” Sandra Fluke launch into her poignant-anecdotes script, the first question that arose in my sarcastic mind was: “Why hasn’t medical research been able to determine what causes pregnancy in women; especially in young unmarried women?”
Suddenly, it dawned on me that science already has determined what causes pregnancy in women: sexual intercourse. Younger women must not understand this simple causal relationship, because they apparently believe that the only way to avoid becoming pregnant is by using contraceptives—rather than by using sexual restraint and common-sense.
At around 3:43 in the video above, Ms Fluke blows-off the concept of abstinence—and even the use of (inexpensive) condoms—with a dismissive wave of her hand.
Has promiscuity and extra-marital sex become so socially-accepted in our society that young men and women no longer even consider “abstinence” as the most effective way to prevent pregnancy and STDs?
I guess that in the “progressive” mindset, there is no longer any moral consideration as to whether someone should even be engaging in sexual activity with someone else. The only remaining question in the “progressive” mind is how to get “society” to pay for birth control for whoever wants to use it.
Obviously, a doctor prescribing hormonal drugs for an existing medical condition is completely different than an unmarried woman seeking and obtaining a prescription for birth control pills; even though the pharmacology—and the risks and side effects—may be the same.
