In Denver, Obama campaigns on free contraception

Charlie Spiering

Speaking at a Women for Obama event in Denver, Colorado, President Obama touted free contraception offered to women by the Affordable Care Act. The president was introduced by contraception activist Sandra Fluke, who became the center of a controversy earlier this summer, after she spoke out against Catholic colleges that did not cover contraceptives.

Obama reminded the audience that because of his reforms, insurance plans were covering the full cost of contraceptives, which he said was “crucial” for women’s health because it was used not only for family planning, but it prescribed by doctors to “reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.”

“And it’s good for our health care system in general because we know that the overall cost of care is lower when women have access to contraception services,” Obama added.

Obama explained that his administration worked with people who held “strong religious views on contraception.”

“We worked with Catholic hospitals and universities to find a solution that protects both religious liberty and a woman’s health,” Obama insisted. (But in fact, over 40 prominent Catholic organizations, including Notre Dame University is suing the Obama administration to block the HHS contraceptive mandate.)

“The fact is that nearly 99 percent of women have relied on contraception at some point.” Obama continued. “And more than half of all women between the ages of 18-34 have struggled to afford it.”

“We’re changing that,” Obama proclaimed.

It's a darn shame that the mothers of both Obama and Fluke didn't take advantage of contraception, whether free or otherwise.

“ ‘The fact is that nearly 99 percent of women have relied on contraception at some point.’ Obama continued. ‘And more than half of all women between the ages of 18-34 have struggled to afford it.’ ”

Let’s not forget that five out of four statistics citations are made up!

Merely another of a continuing series of attempts to remove the focus from the economy. Conservatives would do well not to get sucked up into these diversions.

Sandra Fluke? Isn’t that the STD poster child who indiscriminately screws so many men that she needs several thousands of dollars in rubber money?

Perfect companion for Obama, who screws Americans over so bad that he needs TRILLIONS of dollars to pay off his supporters.

It's probably just as well that They will have free contraceptives. The way Obama is going they won't be able to afford contraceptives and they will have a lot of time on their hands to test them out what with no job and all.

That’s about right, the usual crowd of nutcase supporters for Obama, the America destroyer POTUS. Ain’t gonna see no gigantic, massive crowds this time around. And....you will not see many Democrats running for office campaigning with Obama, who is radioactive and toxic for all office seeking Democrats!!!

“Family planning” that’s the same line Margaret Sanger used to convince blacks that eugenics was good for them. I guess good line never get old when they work.

Here's an idea:

Send a condom to Sandra

Show the poor student how much you care. Donate a condom to Ms. Fluke, since she can't afford her own.

Sandra, we do care and are willing to foot the bill to keep you from reproducing.

Just quit screwing the taxpayer.

At some point, this will change from “free contraceptives” to mandatory sterilization. “A government that will give you everything will also take everything.”

So homosexual males don’t get free condoms via the affordable healthcare act?

They still get and spread STDs. That is a healthcare issue.

Obama is a divider, not a uniter.

WORST PRESIDENT EVER.

Contrception is never free. It destroys marriages and often destroys the woman’s ability to conceive when they do want to have children.

Just never thought I’d see the day when the President of the United States would stand up with some total TRAMP and pitch crap about birth control ...like it’s a right — and people would cheer him on for it!

How did we get to this point? I just have no words.
