Rush Limbaugh seems not to understand how contraception works
I’ve always figured that right-wing radio blabber Rush Limbaugh isn’t nearly as stupid as he pretends to be. He strikes me as a poseur who plays his vast listening audience of mostly angry old white men for suckers.
On the subject of artificial birth control, however, El Rushbo almost seems sincere in peddling foolishness, as we see HERE:
The most obvious example of this came when Limbaugh went after Sandra Fluke, arguing, “The women in her law school program are having so much sex, they are going broke buying birth control pills.” In the radio host’s mind, women apparently are supposed to take birth control pills with every sexual experience. (Note: that’s not how birth control works.)
To hear Limbaugh tell it, pregnant women seek emergency contraception, but that’s plainly wrong – the point of emergency contraception is to prevent pregnancy. It’s why it’s called “emergency contraception.”
Contraception really isn’t that complicated, and yet, Limbaugh continues to say things that suggest he doesn’t understand birth control at all. I’m sure if he asked nicely, Planned Parenthood could send him some brochures that would help him with the basics?
