Sandra Fluke on $9 monthly pill at Target: I did not know that

CNS News via Gateway Pundit:

Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law.

“Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke testified before Pelosi’s panel.

“For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary,” Fluke testified. “Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.”

“Just last week, a married female student told me she had to stop using contraception because she couldn’t afford it any longer,” Fluke testified. “Women employed in low-wage jobs without contraceptive coverage face the same choice. You might respond that contraception is accessible in lots of other ways. Unfortunately, that’s not true.”

On Tuesday, Fluke spoke at an event at the U.S. Capitol in celebration of women’s history month. After the event, asked Fluke: “Were you aware of the Target store that’s 3 miles from Georgetown Law that sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for $9 a month without insurance coverage? Were you aware of that?”

CNS continues, from an MRC video interviewing Fluke:

Fluke said: “So, I’m not familiar with specific department store policies. I know that some generic forms of contraception are less expensive than others and that that has been widely reported. But what has not been widely reported is that many women cannot use those forms of contraception.”

“Women have different types of medical needs that require much more expensive forms,” she said. “One woman contacted me. She was very, very upset that that quote was being emphasized because she has a genetic condition that requires her to use contraception that costs $1,500.”

“So, this is medicine,” said Fluke. “It’s not one-size-fits-all, and while it’s great that some women can access more affordable contraception, contraception needs to be accessible and affordable for all of the women who need all of the different kinds.”

A genetic condition that requires not using the generic version of a drug? That’s . . . extra-scientific.

    I am disabled but refuse to take any help and I shop around for everything to see if I can get it cheaper even .50cents is big to me.

    After this whole thing started I went to Amazon and found she could have gotten condoms for the price of $7.95 for 36 after I used her numbers to figure it out I found she would be having sex 12 times a day, that is EVERYDAY So even if you just looked at the 36 for 7.95 that is once a day so she is just what rush called her, she lied plain and simple.

    Some one should really dig into her life and find all the dirt and start bringing it out. Take her down she has lied about everything she has said and she is not the democrats new poster girl. Not to worry as soon as they are done with her they will throw her out with the garbage.

       Maybe you should read the transcripts of her testimony………….

        Why? We have heard enough of her live testimony to know she lied and/or told half-truths. At this point why should she be trusted?

    Oh Sandra is no fluke!  She is backed by the DNC and Pravda America.  I thought I saw pictures of her in ITALY AND GREECE with her boyfriend?  Maybe he can pay for her pills and the bag he has to put over her head after their dirty uncontrollable deed is performed.

    I love the fact that she always has a friend who (blank)… notice she never mentions the “condition”, it is just a mysterious genetic condition. Is it life-threatening? Are there alternative treatments? I would never hire this woman as a lawyer! She doesn’t have the vaguest idea about what is evidence or how to support an argument. She might need a refund on that high priced education she is NOT getting. At the very least, Georgetown might not want her out there representing the caliber of their program!

    In fairness to Fluke, she wasn’t talking about contraception only.  She was talking about sex toys.  Those things are expensive if you can’t get an insurance company to pay for them.

    @Blog don’t laugh. They’ll be demanding free sex toys next. You know… for medical reasons
