Oh Brother. Georgetown women’s rights activist was too busy preparing her speech to demand free birth control pills from Congress to do the research and find out that Target sells the pill for $9 a month.
CNS News reported:

Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for just $9.

Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law.

“Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke testified before Pelosi’s panel.

(CNSNews.com) – Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for just $9.

Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law.

“Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke testified before Pelosi’s panel.

“For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary,” Fluke testified. “Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.”

“Just last week, a married female student told me she had to stop using contraception because she couldn’t afford it any longer,” Fluke testified. “Women employed in low-wage jobs without contraceptive coverage face the same choice. You might respond that contraception is accessible in lots of other ways. Unfortunately, that’s not true.”

On Tuesday, Fluke spoke at an event at the U.S. Capitol in celebration of women’s history month. After the event, CNSNews.com asked Fluke: “Were you aware of the Target store that’s 3 miles from Georgetown Law that sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for $9 a month without insurance coverage? Were you aware of that?”

  1. How could little poor Sandra know. . .it is above her pay grade. . .

    Now who else said it was above their pay-grade? (Oh yeah, opie dopie Obama!)

    or as Forest Gump would say ” Stupid is as Stupid does” . . . even if it is a fluke!

  2. Like mg4us, this doesn’t surprise me. As a deep Leftist Ms. (not-a) Fluke wants everything given to her…but authoritative figures – gov’t, school, etc – and to be paid for by someone else. For her to find an easy answer and take care of herself is so outside her limited skill set that no one should be surprised.

    But this is typical. Fluke is just a tool, and the masters running the tools don’t care for intellect. She’s ultimately just a cleaned up version of the folks holding “starving, please help” cardboard signs at major intersections – a beggar.

  3. For G’s sake give her the $9 a month to prevent her from getting children! Or better, sterilize her.

  4. Like all the others, she is a liberal because she is ill informed or because she is brain damaged.

  5. I’m torn on this because I’d prefer Ms. Fluke not reproduce, so it might be worth the 9 bucks, but I’d also prefer she not practice law.

    I love the example of the married female student though, why refer to a married student rather than a single student? Is it because the married person has somehow more right to regular sex than a single person? Doesn’t that clash with the feminist view? Of the married student and the single student, which is more likely to have additional insurance and supporting family income to rely on?

  6. Why are Feminists Surprised Their Daughters are Sluts? http://arcticcompass.blogspot.com/2009/08/feminism-communist-plot.html

  7. “Georgetown women’s rights activist was too busy preparing her speech to demand free birth control pills from Congress to do the research and find out that Target sells the pill for $9 a month.”

    Seriously, would anyone but a leftie want this woman as their lawyer when she doesn’t even do the research that is required? That’s something a first year undergraduate learns. Or was she too busy protesting to learn that simple fact?

  8. a lobatomy would help her a bit more…
    …but she is a total embarassment now
    first everyone learns she has a rich b/f
    who could provide for her all the contraceptives she needs.
    now she finds out target sells such for only $9

    ….the dems should be hiding and cringing everytime she speaks
    or something new comes up *lol* cuz this makes them look bad.

  9. Just another elitist sl*t who isn’t in touch with the reality that the rest of us enjoy. I didn’t realize that Georgetown University was so cloistered.

  10. For God’s sake, can we forget about this woman until she actually does run for office (if she does)? She was a nobody, she is a nobody, and the sooner she is forgotten, the better.

  11. Three miles is too far to travel to get the pills and my car is too old. I demand the government give me a new car so life is fair. It is a woman’s right to have a better car isn’t it?

    ::::::::::::::::::::

    You covering up Nancy Pelosi’s involvement in this, amongst other highest level Democrats. You would, being a Democrat Party political hack and all.

    Since you foolishly invoked God, the Lord God isn’t going to forget this woman’s lying, unless she truly repents and sincerely asks Him for forgiveness, nor will He forget her part in the War Against Children nor forget her aggressive rejection of His command to “be fruitful and multiply.”

  13. once a slut…always a slut…just a dumb slut

  14. “Just last week, a married female student told me she had to stop using contraception because she couldn’t afford it any longer,” Fluke testified.

    Psst – condoms are about a dollar each. Maybe she could ask for a dollar ‘donation’ for each toss. Oh NO, that would be prostitution, we just our incidental sexual escapade paid by somebody else, just not s or our boyfriend of the minute ‘John’.

    Fluke’s lies should be in a comedy routine savaging Obama and the Donks for the economy, but Obama and the Donks are lapping it up as serious business showing the Repubs as being evil.

  15. The Butterfly McQueen defense* :

    I don’t know nothin’ ’bout no Target birth control pills!

    (*re: Gone With the Wind)

  16. I wonder if she was simply ill-informed or an outright liar?

  17. Guess she lives in the same bubble Obama does, where nail polish costs $10,000

  18. The article ses she is in law school on a public interest scholarship.Looks like free money and student loans are being milked. When I went to law school it was 4 years for a bs and 2 years for the juris doctorate. Starting at 18 years of age one was typically graduating at 24-25 and went to work. She at age 30 has stretched it out to career student status and still wants the freebies. How can this be in the public interest sufficient to support a public interest scholarship………

  19. In the Soviet Union women are equal… they can even obtain jobs as garabage collectors. I am sure that is a job Sandra is qualified to obtain.
