Birth control should not be covered without co-pays as part of preventative health care, Bill O’Reilly says, because “many women who get pregnant are blasted out of their minds when they have sex, [so] they’re not going to use birth control anyway.” He introduces this Fox News segment while talking about pot and booze and says covering the Pill would cost four billion dollars a year (um, can I get a source on that?) and suggests improving access to birth control will “maybe” cut back on the number of abortions, foster care, and people on welfare.
First of all, WHAT? Second of all, WHAT WHAT WHAT?Oh, Bill. Things have changed since the 1950s when condoms, diaphragms and the ever-popular “pull-out method” reigned. Namely, there was the invention of this thing called the birth control pill in the 1960s. Crazy, I know. A woman takes it every day and it is almost guaranteed to prevent pregnancy. There’s all kinds of other sci-fi confabulations to keep women from getting preggo. Google “Nuva Ring” or “IUD” or “Depo Provera” and prepare to have your mind blown, Bill. Lots of birth control methods are still almost 100 percent effective even if the woman is “blasted out of [her] mind” because she does not have to remember to do anything.
But thank you for insinuating it’s only drunken sluts who need to use birth control. It’s not like married folks want to plan pregnancies or anything. Of course in your view it’s only single hussies who are having sex. (Because what good, God-fearing lady would have sex for pleasure?!) Surely women who are “blasted out of their minds when they have sex” should be punished for their slutty behavior with a child.
The stupidity, it overwhelms. I still do not understand why my father watches this channel.
(Apologies for using the words “Bill O’Reilly” and “sex” in the same sentence, but it had to be done.)
