As we all know, college students consider the most important issue in this election to be whether the federal government will force insurance companies and employers to pay for them to have consequence-free nookie. Thus, the contraception mandate was a big item in President Obama’s speech at George Mason University here in northern Virginia
yesterday Friday. According to LifeSite News:
Citing the ‘preventive services’ mandate that requires healthcare plans to provide sterilization, contraception and abortion-inducing drugs to women free of charge, Obama said, “I don’t think a college student in Fairfax or Charlottesville should have to choose between text books or the preventive care that she needs. That’s why we passed this law. And I am proud of it. It was the right thing to do. And we are going to keep it.”
It’s a strange world that one must live in to believe that college students, who heretofore have had no problem paying for a $10 pack of condoms whenever they wanted them, are suddenly being forced to choose between textbooks (which can cost upwards of $500 or more a semester) and birth control. Maybe if the choice was between condoms and a six-pack of Bud, maybe (not that that’s ever been a problem, either).
“Let me tell you something, Virginia,” Obama said, “I don’t think your boss should control the care you get. I don’t think insurance companies should control the care you get. I definitely don’t think politicians on Capitol Hill should control the care you get. We’ve seen some of their attitudes, we’ve read about those.”
“I think there is one person who gets to make decisions about your health care,” said Obama, “that’s you.”
I agree. Which is why college students who want to have sex should also have to pay the price. That way they are in complete control, with no outside considerations or complications such as insurance filings.
See how easy it is, Mr. President?
