You Should Be Paying For Our Sex Lives

This beats all. HotAir reports:

At a hearing of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee yesterday, a single witness — Georgetown law student and “reproductive rights activist” Sandra Fluke — told sympathetic policy-makers that the administration’s so-called contraception mandate should stand … because her peers are going broke buying birth control.

The chutzpah level actually rises towards the end of Ms. Fluke’s testimony:

[When we enrolled at a Catholic school] we expected women to be treated equally, to not have our school create untenable burdens that impede our academic success. We expected that our schools would live up to the Jesuit creed . . . to meet all of our medical needs.

(A second tip o’ the hat there to blogger OneSTDV for fishing that out from the video.)

I wasn’t aware that school subsidies for female rutting is part of the Jesuit creed, but no doubt it’s there somewhere in the recorded teachings of St. Ignatius.
