Craig Bannister in CNS news reports on the Georgetown Law School student’s frankly bizarre testimony yesterday:
Speaking at a hearing held by Pelosi to tout Pres. Obama’s mandate that virtually every health insurance plan cover the full cost of contraception and abortion-inducing products, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage.
Forget for a moment that Georgetown is the province of this nation’s self-appointed “elite” – Ms. Fluke and her classmates are paying $23K plus fees per year, and it’s pretty much an upper-middle-class fiefdom. We’re not talking Metro State, here.
No – it’s a school for this nation’s self-appointed “elite”.
And it shows in the frustrated Ms. Fluke’s testimony:
“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception), Fluke reported.
It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations.
$3K for three years? $1K a year? $80 a month? $2.50 or so a day?
Numbers like these bespeak a career in Mark Ritchie’s State Department, or the DFL’s budget office.
That’s what your “elite” school tuition gets you these days.
And that’s what their graduates get you; you, Mr. Copier Repairman in Alexandria, will be paying for law students’ birth control.
And they, the future elite, would be paying for yours – except you’re working too hard to have any time for sex anymore anyway.
