assignment # 2

The idea misinterpretation goes long and far.  In this case one Sandra Fluke was just trying to make her case that contraception can be very costly for sexually active people, and if it is for health and safety reasons why should it not be covered in our insurance.  This idea does not seem all that far’fetched at first, but then when people like Rush Limbaugh put their incoherent twist on it, it can look like the worst idea to man.  

What does that make her?” he asks. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”- Rush Limbaugh

This was a simple case of a woman voicing her a opinion on an idea she sought to be valid, but leave it to the conservatives and the media crazy prime time faces such as Limbaugh to jump on this and make it something it is not.  These are the kind of cases that cause for society to stop and think about freedom and the right have a voice for what you believe in.  If were always going to be met with such contempt there is no way our society will flourish nor will we want to make a solid attempt at expressing our opinions.
