Paying for college by hooking up with sugar daddies

An article in today’s Capitol Times discussed the “phenomenon” of female college students who are paying for college or paying down student debt by hooking up with “sugar daddies” — wealthy men who pay for companionship and sex. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is among the national leaders in producing “sugar babies” — young adults willing to provide these services.

Without the wide availability of contraception, none of this would be possible.

All of the vaunted sexual liberation women seem to have these days — “Be in control of your own sexuality! Birth control will set you free!” — has not resulted in male-female equality, at least where sex is concerned.

Has contraception really liberated women, or is it an excuse for men to have sex with no consequences? If birth control fails, it’s the women’s problem. She’s the one who will have to have the abortion or carry the baby. Men can push the problem off and say it’s not their problem that failed. Men more likely to use women for sex, because it objectifies women and there are no consequences. This has facilitated the abuse of women by men, and women are deluded if they think they are in control of their sex lives. Women want to be respected and revered by men, not used by them as an object. Abortion and birth control have left a trail of destruction for women, harming us physically emotionally and spiritually. With contraception, there’s one person in control, the man. Which brings us back to today’s news of college students turning to the world’s oldest profession.

What does sexual freedom mean for women these days? Is there really sex with no consequences? Why do women continue to let their bodies be used in the name of choice and freedom?

Joint Finance Committee adopts restrictions on abortion training at the University of Wisconsin

On March 15, 2010, Pro-Life Wisconsin and the Alliance Defense Fund revealed the disturbing results of an open records request. The open records request proved that since 2007, more than $58,878 of funds of a state agency have gone to train future abortionists at Planned Parenthood.

“Medical residents from the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority [UWHCA] participate in training at the Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI) facility in Madison, WI… UWHCA continues to pay its residents while they are in training at PPWI,” stated James Dechene, senior vice president and general counsel for UWHCA, in response to the open records request. Click here to view Dechene’s March 5, 2010 letter.

Late this evening [June 3], the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee adopted a motion that would apply current law abortion funding restrictions to the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics Authority (UWHCA). State law (Wis. Stat. 20.927) already prohibits the funds of the state or of a state agency from being spent on the performance of an abortion. Passed on a 12-4 party-line vote, this motion specifies that the UWHCA is a state “agency” as defined for the statute. Click here to read our press release.

The budget will now go to the State Assembly and Senate, and lastly, has to be signed by pro-life Gov. Scott Walker. Our special thanks to Rep. Andre Jacque (a UW grad as well) for fighting for this on the Assembly floor. We are proud to endorse representative such as Andre, who truly do stand as a line of defense for the defenseless.
