Sorry, but Rush has to go. Since he said an acceptable compensation for "paying" for Birth Control would be watching porn of the college coed having sex, I suggest the authorities might check his on-line activities. What about all those underage girls who take birth control for extreme menstral pain (CLICK HERE for doctor's report.) Parents of such girls have to foot the bill for their daughters if insurance doesn't cover it.
I've seen way too many talk show people fired for much less egregious comments than those by Rush Limbaugh. And there are too many intelligent, less misogynistic people who could and should replace him. If he was really sorry, he wouldn't have gloated about it for days afterwards. Why the alleged change of heart? There is a petition circulating requesting all those who advertise on his show to pull their ad. Sanctions are needed. If Limbaugh didn't have a job, he might learn what it is like to not afford the medication needed to prevent unwanted pregnancies (married or otherwise) and/or to prevent other health threatening conditions. Not to mention the costs to the taxpayer in the current economy (and judicial system) for unwanted babies.
Is he sincere with his apology? If he wants to keep his job, perhaps Limbaugh should be required to care for a few drug addicted babies? Or, at least, pay for their care? Maybe then he'd get a much needed education about how to a more responsible media spokesperson and citizen. Just this morning, I saw some (male) college students commenting on the rising price of gas, and how they can barely get by as it is. I doubt that Limbaugh will make nasty comments about these young men, and the need to put a lid on price-gouging by gas stations.
Ultimately, LImbaugh may have provided the Democrats with better PR than any SuperPac. He has just drawn attention to the fact that the GOP candidates are opposing making birth control available for those who cannot afford it.
(Click HERE to view excellent documentary on babies of female drug addicts. After viewing, ask yourself if you might prefer subsidizing birth control for drug addicts vs. pay the price for the care of their babies. Note mention of Barbara Harris's program to pay drug addicts to get sterilized. Ms. Harris herself has adopted many crack babies already, so it's not for lack of love for these unwanted kids.)
