Limbaugh: Women Wouldn’t Need Birth Control If They Didn’t ‘Do a Certain Thing’ (Mediaite)
There were echoes of Rush Limbaugh’sinfamous attack on Sandra Fluke in his commentary Wednesday about the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision, though he did not name any specific names this time. The radio host was ranting against Democrats like Hillary Clintonwho have denounced the decision, which will allow closely-held companies to deny employees coverage for birth control, when he suggested there’s one easy way for women to avoid the need for birth control.
Repeating a question he received from a caller yesterday, Limbaugh asked, “When did birth control pills become so important to the human condition the federal government requires every insurance policy to cover them?” He noted that eye exams and dental work are not covered under the Affordable Care Act, but contraception is. “Which is worse, to go blind from lack of regular eye exams or to get pregnant?”
