In her appearance on ABC’s The View today, Sandra Fluke continued to push back against false information about President Obama’s mandate that employer-provided insuranace plans cover contraception. Contraception like birth control pills should be treated exactly like any other drugs, Fluke told the shows’ hosts:
FLUKE: I want to correct the misperception, which Mr. Limbaugh and a lot of other commentators have been putting out there to confuse the public, the idea that this is about taxpayers or the government paying for contraception. It is absolutely not. This regulation covers private insurance and it wants to have this type of medical drug treated in a way that’s similar to how other medical drugs are treated. And it is health care.
