Leftist women are the ones "pushing" support for health-insurance covered contraceptives — because they weren't raised "old school," conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh said Monday. 

Citing a PBS report that more than half of privately insured women are getting free birth control" under Obamacare, up from just 14 percent in 2012, for an annual average annual saving of $269, Limbaugh asks and answers: "… women can't pay that on their own? The taxpayers have to provide the $269? Yes."

"Women have demanded independence and power and feminism and all this, and now demanding everybody pay," he said. " I don't even know how many women really are demanding it. You know, it's leftist women that are pushing this."

Limbaugh reasoned their insistence indicates an entitlement unknown to previous generations. Media Matters captured the audio of his remarks.

"We're from the old school where you provide for yourself," he said. "We were raised that whatever you want or need, you go out and get a job and earn enough to buy it. If you can't afford it, then you put it off until you can. But the last thing you do is ask somebody else. You don't go down the neighborhood and knock on the front door of people and ask 'em to buy whatever you want…"

He also lashed out at men who are "totally supportive" of insurance-provided contraceptives.

"Today's young men are totally supportive of somebody else buying women their birth control pills… 'cause sex is what it's all about," he said.

"Pajama Boy types having sex, sex, sex. That's what it's all about. Everybody wants it and whatever it takes to make it safe. And if it takes the taxpayers buying women birth control, the men are for it, too. It's cheap insurance, and if this is what women want before they'll have sex, then fine."

Limbaugh decried an erosion of values in today's generation, saying "we were brought up with the idea that sex has consequences and that it's somewhat special, and that if you want something you provide it yourself.

"You don't ask somebody else. That's all out the window now…."
