Sandra Fluke Opening Statement (C-SPAN) (by CSPAN)
TW: Video discusses rape victim; comments on video link very derogatory
What makes me sick about the comments on the video and the comments Rush Limbaugh made about Ms. Fluke is that this video (her statement) never once discusses recreational sex. It talks about the medical need for birth control.
I still think women should have affordable access to bc regardless, but this issue hits home for me because I have PCOS like Sandra’s friend. Before my prescription deductible is met, I pay about $95 a month (28 days) for birth control. If I did not have health insurance that did not cover birth control, it would be difficult for me to make it work while also paying for other medications. I’m so disappointed by the way people have chosen to react to her testimony and personal attacks that have been made against her by public figures.
