What does this have to do with “women’s rights” or “reproductive rights”? Not a damn thing. This is about forcing insurers to pay for something entirely optional and – let’s face it – recreational, not medical. The Fluke affair is nothing more than political grandstanding to drum up support for the administration’s preferences.
Sex is optional. And while it may come as a surprise to some, it’s not even medically necessary. Don’t believe me, ask any of the millions of married couples who only manage to get together five or six times a year instead of 365. Fluke’s “testimony” in front of Congress is about forcing insurers to expand their burgeoning list of have-to-pay-fors to include yet another perk.
Insurers will react the way insurers always react when they’re forced to expand coverage. They will simply raise their rates. And the cost of coverage for all of us – including the 90-year-old woman who hasn’t had sex since 1959 - will go up as a result. I’m sure granny will be delighted to hear she’ll be helping to underwrite the sex life of 25-year-old coeds.
As for me, I’m not. How about you?"
