Hypocrisy of Government Funding for Penis-Pumps—But Questioning Contraception Dollars 1


Alternet has the article WATCH: Daily Show’s Samantha Bee Nails Hypocrisy of Government Funding for Penis-Pumps—But Questioning Contraception Dollars.

ObamaCare is that insurance companies have to cover women’s health care needs including contraception.  This has caused serious congressional debate with Republicans adamant that women ought to pay for their own individual sexual health choices.

Yet, on last night’s The Daily Show, Samantha Bee revealed that unlike the serious congressional debate targeting female contraception and reproductive healthcare in general, Medicare has spent $172 million on penis pumps in the last five years, which the mostly white, older, male members (sic) of Congress don’t seem to have a problem.


Now the dirty little secret is out. This must be why I am such a strong proponent of women’s equality in health care funding by the government. I don’t want to be a hypocrite.

Maybe the rallying cry ought to be “No penis pumps and no viagra unless female contraceptives are funded.”
