Karen Finney: Free Contraception More Important Than Whole Economy

Karen Finney is a lunatic. The MSNBC political activist analysts says that women getting free contraception (which by the way can be had for $9 a month) should be more important to them than the state of the nation’s economy. She also said that working women voting based on the economy and not free contraception ‘Hurt’s her.’

Here’s the clip from MRC:

Talking to Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word, Karen Finney arrogantly said, “It’s a little painful because I’m wondering if those women really heard the full message” [in other words, it hurts her because women thought for themselves and did not hear who their betters said to vote for -ed]

After she was asked by O’Donnell to give her view of the primary results, Finney said, “This woman vote really hurts me.”

O’Donnell then shared exit poll data from Alabama showing 49 percent of working women voted for Santorum.

“That’s why I say,” continued Finney, “it’s a little painful because I’m wondering if those women really heard the full message that, yes, there’s the economy, but if you’ve got to worry about your basic healthcare, how are you then going to be able to do what you need to do in terms of having a job, paying your rent, taking care of your kids?”



It’s ok if Obama puts your kids $200,000 in debt as long as you get free sex. It’s ok if you’re losing your home, free contraception is more important. It’s ok if you can’t find a job, we get $9 of stuff FREE!

Really think about what she said: “if you’ve got to worry about your basic healthcare, [meaning free contraception] how are you then going to be able to do what you need to do in terms of having a job, paying your rent, taking care of your kids?”

She says women will not be able to handle the responsibility of a job and kids if they have to pay for contraception! How insulting to women everywhere.

What if a man said: “There there little lady, you don’t worry your little head about the economy and things you don’t understand, you just service me but don’t have any babies and you’ll be just fine.”

    Isn’t this what the Democrat Party is saying with their desire to control everything and provide what they determine to be “rights?”

    Damn Autocorrect. Thanks

    Gotta wonder what the 3 people watching the show thought.
    Really, to call this woman an idiot would be to offer praise.

    Eat your pills and kill your babies. I. Don’t. Care.

    Just don’t expect me to pay for it. Bitch.

  • jim_m

    Yeah because not having to worry about getting a free abortion is far more important than whether or not you will be able to feed yourself.  I would say feed your family, but since her family is residing in the bottom of a biohazard container she does not have that problem.

    This is where the left often trips itself up: they are masters of escalation of commitment. 

    In this case, they started with a reasonable proposition: health care plans should cover contraceptives because (A) some women need those drugs for real health reasons and (B) it’s cheaper for society in general for women NOT to have unplanned, unwanted pregnancies.  One may disagree with this position, and it certainly fell foul of the First Amendment with regard to the Catholic Church, but it’s not especially extreme.

    Then they were balked, and all hell broke loose.  WAR ON WOMEN!  BIRTH CONTROL MUST BE FREE!  THE OTHER SIDE WANTS WOMEN TO DIE!

    And now this idiocy: birth control is a more important issue that the economy.

    I wonder if these people listen to themselves.

      “I wonder if these people listen to themselves.”

      Why should they?  Nobody else listens to them.

    • jim_m


      Umm actually it is the left that wants women to die because the vast majority of selective sex abortions kill female children.

      • herddog505

        Is that true in America specifically or just across the world generally?

        I must wonder what sort of monster looks at an ultrasound and says, “Meh, not what I wanted; kill it.  I’ll try again later.”

        • jim_m

           They already do that with “selective reduction” in IVF.

        How the hell do you confuse Chinese gender practices with abortion and come out looking so damn ignorant of actual birthing rates in the US as well?

        • jim_m

           Sex selection works in one direction world wide or have you never looked at the issue.  It does not happen as much here in the US but the practice is growing.  The ignorant one is you when you ignore reality.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IZ5BM5GNLA54OADSWGSXAMA7SY Jay

            …  That’s bullshit, Jim.  Where is your proof of this wild eyed assertion?

            If you want to be a dumbass on not knowing world history, be my guest.  But something on this level requires proof.

            And reality is on my side when China continues to be the best indicator of people that kill females because they aren’t valued as much.

            Might want to check your leftist bullshit at the door and read a little more from the CIA handbook.

          • Vagabond661

            But female babies are being aborted, correct?

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IZ5BM5GNLA54OADSWGSXAMA7SY Jay

            Excellent strawman.

          • jim_m

            Selective sex abortions are occuring in the US.  A national Academy of Sciences paper elucidated the issue back in 2008

            In the Asian-American sample, the boy-girl ratio started out at the same norm: 1.05 to 1. But among families whose first child was a girl, the boy-girl ratio among second kids went up to 1.17 to 1. And if the first two kids were girls, the boy-girl ratio among third kids went up to 1.5 to 1.

            There’s no plausible innocent explanation for this enormous and directionally abnormal shift in probability. The authors conclude that the numbers are “evidence of sex selection, most likely atthe prenatal stage.”

            So now who is it exactly that is the ignorant one?It’s you, Jay.  I figured that I had better make that explicit so you would understand.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IZ5BM5GNLA54OADSWGSXAMA7SY Jay

            So let’s make this clear:

            I talk about China and their sex preference based on having sons and suddenly that comes to a study that you can’t link to about Asian preferences and that represents America instead of the cultural norms of Asian countries.

            You really need to work on your rebuttals.

      What, and give up the element of surprise?

        McGehee, that made me laugh out loud.  Thanks!

        McGehee! long time no rant… or something like that. 😉

    This next election will be a choice between Freedom and Free Stuff.  It’s clear how Ms. Finney and her fellow spokespeople at MSNBC will vote.  Putting our children and grandchildren farther into debt, much of which is held by folks like the Chinese, for the sake of “free” contraception is the ultimate folly.  Before it has even been implemented, the cost of ObamaCare had doubled.  As P.J. O’Rourke said: “If you think heath care is expensive now, just wait until it’s free.”

    This woman’s a dingbat.  She’s obviously either smoking something that clouds her mind or she’s brain damaged beyond repair.

    Contraception is not only more important than the whole economy, it’s more important than the Constitution.

    What is trashing the 1st Amendment worth?

    At Walmart it’s worth $9 a month.
