(Newser) – If Rush Limbaugh doesn't want to absorb some of the cost of female contraception as a health insurance consumer, others are wondering: Why should we pay for Limbaugh's Viagra? "We know" Limbaugh "has used Viagra, which is covered by medical insurance plans," Dr. Nancy Snyderman points out on MSNBC. Limbaugh was detained in 2006 by Customs agents for a mislabeled bottle of the little blue pills crossing the border from the Dominican Republic. Limbaugh said at the time that they were for his personal use, even though a prescription for them was made out to his physician to "protect" his privacy, “given the potential embarrassing nature of Viagra," according to a note from Limbaugh obtained by the Smoking Gun.

Snyderman also notes that Limbaugh has been married four times, and has no children, so "I assume he has used some form of contraception." (Limbaugh also entered rehab for an addiction to pain pills, which may or may not have been paid for by health insurance). Limbaugh said last week that Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke's support for insurance coverage for contraception amounted to a demand for payment for sex, calling her a slut and prostitute.
