Well at least that is what he should have said. Instead, this moron, whose name I will not say because I believe he is totally doing this for attention, said the following about a college student that is pro insurance coverage for birth control:
"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke (sic) who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex — what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.”
He went on to say that Susan Fluke is promoting casual sex and if we [the people] are paying for her birth control, she should be required to post the videos of her having sex for us to see.
OK, FIRST of all, with the exception of maybe drug addicts, I can't see any woman prostituting herself for $8 (the monthly cost of my birth control), especially a college student. If for no other reason than because they are required to take Economics and well, that is just not economically intelligent.
Second, many women, including myself, take it for medical reasons. Some take it to regulate themselves; others take it because it dissolves cysts. So put that in your pipe and smoke it R.L.!
Third, don't you think it is better to take precautions instead of having sex without birth control, have a ton of children that you can't afford and having to go on welfare and/or food stamps? Wouldn't that cost more? Besides, if everyone were having litters of children, what would happen to our reality TV? No more shows like the Duggar's 19 Kids and Counting or Kate Plus 8 which has already been cancelled because, well, the Duggar's have more kids. Why watch 8 when you can watch 19+? But if everyone had 19+, then viewers would be like, "Yeah, whatever, I've got 19 kids too." The show would be cancelled and the Duggar's would most likely have to go on welfare or prostitute their children. What do you have to say to that R.L.?

To my knowledge, there is nothing about birth control in the Bible. You know why? Because it didn't exist. The objection to it was put forth by religious leaders. Why? Because God wants us to procreate and populate the Earth, which last I heard, people were saying was overpopulated and we were destroying. These same leaders have continuously changed up the rules regarding divorce and other hot button issues. Remember: Don't eat meat on Friday's during Lent? Then it was, well you can eat meat, as long you are over 65, a child or have health issues. In parts of the South, particularly where I currently live, you can't buy alcohol on Sunday "because of God." To that I say, "JESUS DRANK WINE!!!"
How about a real God given Commandment: Thou Shall Not Kill - You know, unless our country is being attacked or someone is breaking into your house.Then lock and load, baby! (And no, I am not slamming our soldiers. I applaud each one and am thankful we have them. I'm simply making a point.) Man tends to twist rules, regulations, and apparently Commandments to suit the needs of mankind.

Still, I can't help but point out that no where in the Bible does it say, "I condemn thee for using birth control. However boner pills are not only accepted, but encouraged." *wink*wink
Finally, we have Free Speech which protects our rights to say whatever the hell we want, no matter how idiotic that may be. So technically this idiot can blow all of the hot air that he wants to, yet we can't do anything about it. Although Susan may be able to get the bastard for deflamation (*hint*hint), but unfortunately, we can't shut him up for good.
I think what's funniest about the whole thing and the reason R.L. opposes it so is because he could be the poster child for birth control. Picture it: His mom holding up a photo of him with the phrase "Don't let this happen to you."
Bottom line: I say birth control and boner pills for all! Susan Fluke, go get your's girl...but despite what R.L. says, please don't show us the video.
In closing I have a special request for R.L. please practice safe sex - Go f%@k yourself!
Special Note: RL has issued an apology for his "insulting comments." He said he was just trying to be funny. Idiot!
