Bill O'Reilly Compares Contraception Coverage To Denmark Distributing Heroin To Prevent Crime

Bill O'Reilly decided to jump the shark right along with his fellow blowhard, Rush Limbaugh and tell lies about Sandra Fluke's testimony before the Democratic forum in the House. O'Reilly, like Limbaugh tried to paint Fluke as wanting taxpayers to pay for her "activities" and lied repeatedly, claiming that contraceptive coverage costs money as opposed to saving it.

Bill O'Reilly decided to jump the shark right along with his fellow blowhard, Rush Limbaugh and tell lies about Sandra Fluke's testimony before the Democratic forum in the House. O'Reilly, like Limbaugh tried to paint Fluke as wanting taxpayers to pay for her "activities" and lied repeatedly, claiming that contraceptive coverage costs money as opposed to saving it.

O'Reilly also did his best here to conflate the taxpayers picking up the tab for the insurance mandate, which they're not as opposed to those who are paying their insurance premiums and their employers. He also pretended that this is not a women's health issue even though a good deal of women use contraception for other health reasons other than purely for birth control.

O'Reilly really went off the deep end when he compared providing contraception to the country of Denmark distributing heroin to keep crime rates down. If Fox thinks it's a good issue for Republicans to follow Limbaugh's lead and start slut-shaming 99 percent of the women in the United States who have used contraception at some point in their lives, they really have lost their damned minds.

And as Think Progress noted, it didn't get any better a little later in the show -- Bill O’Reilly Attacks Sandra Fluke: Claims She Wants Government To Pay For Her ‘Social Life’.
