Update: This story might not actually be true. It was posted on something called Journal14 and then at Free Republic. I caught it last night but the fact that I’m not seeing any news source including conservative media pick up on this makes me question it. So I’ll check back in but for right now let’s assume I’m an idiot.
This is hilariously insane. Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student turned contraceptive activist, blamed pro-lifers and conservatives for the sexting of Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner. In a talk to the radically pro-abortion group Emily’s List, she said:
“What men, and women want, above all is SAFE sex. It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand. So a poor person like me, I can’t afford to have sex, unless it’s unprotected, and if a poor person accidentally gets pregnant, it’s now almost impossible to get an abortion.”
“That’s why so many men and women are resorting to sexting. It’s safe sex. The ultimate safe sex.”
“And now we’re hypocritically blaming this poor guy Weiner for basically trying to do the right thing. It makes no sense whatsoever. It just goes to show how Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, and the rest of the Tea Party are messing up this country. Weiner’s a good guy, he’s my hero. I hope he wins, he’ll makes a great mayor, and I’m going up to NYC this weekend to campaign for him.”
Wow. Just wow. You know, I’m starting to wonder if that Fluke lady might be a bit of an ideologue.
Just so Ms. Fluke understands, Weiner was sexting strange women while his wife was pregnant. You see, Ms. Fluke, the way the woman’s body works is that once she’s pregnant she can’t get pregnant again. So there was no need for birth control, you understand? But that’s attempting to counter insanity with logic.
Georgetown should be very proud.
