The surreal world

From The New York Post:

Colorado has launched a new ad campaign that attempts to entice young women to sign up for the new national health-care program with the promise of free contraceptives and carefree sex.

In one of the print ads, a flirty young woman holding a package of birth-control pills and leaning against a young man says: “OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control.”

She continues her steamy monologue: “My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers.”

“I got insurance. Now you can too,” she says. “Thanks ObamaCare!”

The ad, which is dripping with lusty sexuality, dubs the young couple “Susie and Nate … Hot to Trot.”

To be on the safe side, there’s an added warning: “The pill doesn’t protect you from STDs; condoms and common sense do that.”

The ad is part of the “thanks obamacare!” campaign targeting young Coloradans — and underscores how the law’s backers will say just about anything to lure young people to sign up for the new mandatory health coverage, an outcome that is critical to ObamaCare working as planned.

The leftist often says that we who disapprove of contraception are free to choose not to avail ourselves of it. True enough; the problem is that we aren’t free to choose not to live in a society that’s been vulgarized by it.

  1. What about having to subsidize contraception or abortion through our now mandatory health insurance? Where does the Christian draw the line, even if it means exorbitant fines or jail time?

    • Let me be clear: “Young people are important for this working” means we need people, in particular low risk people, to be net losers to pay for others who are net winners in the insurance roulette game of life; because that is what insurance is.

    • When I talk to most man of my age, they all think that being a drunken oaf is pretty cool, they empatize with alkohol & drug abusers (well many use drugs themselves), music lyrics glamourize that, etc.

      On the other hand if a young woman watches “Sex and the City” enough times I’m pretty sure she will think that being a slut is positive too.

      So young people are not only OK with that. The actually those things are positive, worthy life goals. Not doing it is for losers, as can be seen by making fun of “square people” and “virgins”.

  2. Let us not give more credit to this ad than it is due. A closer look reveals that it does not say “The pill doesn’t protect you from STDs; condoms and common sense do that.” with the correct semicolon, but instead says “The pill doesn’t protect you from STDs, condoms and common sense do that.” They cannot even get the grammar correct on their boilerplates.

  3. I generally don’t take an opinion on abortion specifically because of the moral and medical issues involved but the more women are promiscuous the more gender relations are wrecked and the less men are even interested in sex or marriage and the more a woman’s value goes down. And, anyways, the pill’s in the water and effecting all of us. So much for our right to choose.

  4. Well, I do suppose this was an appropriate to post to end the career of the Orthosphere. What more truly needs to be said or argued?

  5. This ad seems like a parody making fun of those who think that easier access to birth control pills is desired solely because women want to have random sex with strangers whenever and wherever.

    Where I’m from birth control pills are over the counter and extremely cheap, yet we’ve never had a “sexual revolution”, and our marriages are still primarily arranged by our parents. The pills are used by married women for family planning.

    That being said, with the “go green” “organic” “anti-vax” “natural home birth” and other earthy-crunchy movements gaining incredible steam in the US, I’m surprised the very serious side effects of birth control pills are not more widely talked about in American media.

    “The pill doesn’t protect you from STDs; condoms and common sense do that.”

    OK so then why use birth control pills at all then? Why not just use condoms?

    By the way, Viagra has been covered by insurance for decades now, a total injustice to tax payers who shouldn’t have to fund old men getting laid (which they got no business doing in the first place).

    Old men should follow nature’s cue and not try to relive their days of youth.

    Americans need to learn how to grow old gracefully.
