On the Money with Peter Hebert, “Sandra Fluke: Campus Slut?” March 2, 2012

Filed under: Commentary — Peter Hebert @ 8:06 PM

There is a saying in the Bible: “Answer a fool according to his folly.” And, that is exactly what Rush Limbaugh did when he denounced Sandra Fluke. Sure, Rush was over the top, rude, and inflammatory, but he made his point and got everyone’s attention to the absurdity of Sandra Fluke’s petition before Congress.

Sandra Fluke’s concern was over not having $3,000 in contraceptive coverage provided by the health plan of a religious university. That $3,000 represents a lot of sleeping around. Sandra Fluke, not Obama, not you or me, and not her parents, is responsible for her sexuality and reproductive abilities. In other words, if Sandra Fluke wants to sleep around on campus like “a slut” as Rush said, she should pay for her own birth control pills. If she does not want to get a sexually transmitted disease, Sandra Fluke should pay for the condoms and keep them in her purse in the event one of her casual encounters does not keep one in his wallet.

At issue is the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which everyone seems to have missed as they have understandably attacked Rush Limbaugh for his offensive remarks. Sandra Fluke has attacked the establishment clause and in so doing has attacked everyone who respects the Constitution and Bill of Rights. And, the hypocrisy of the liberal left is that when it comes to abortion, women on the liberal left will say, “Stay out of my uterus!” But, when it comes to managing personal finances and making the choice between a $3.00 latte or owing the responsibility for one’s own sexuality and reproductive abilities, these same women will petition Congress and plead, “Please! Enter my uterus!”

Rush Limbaugh was over the top in his response to Sandra Fluke’s testimony on Capitol Hill. But, then again, that is his signature style. It’s abrasive and offensive, which is why I don’t care for Rush Limbaugh. But, he deserves credit for bringing Sandra Fluke’s testimony before Congress to the nation’s attention.

Again, there is a saying in the Bible: “Answer a fool according to his folly.” Sandra Fluke’s positions are foolish and discredit Georgetown University.
