Posted on 04/30/2012 9:23:42 AM PDT by Academiadotorg
Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who challenged the Catholic universitys right to refuse to provide contraceptives in its insurance coverage, is still attempting to get the Jesuit school to change its policy.
Invited by a student group, with the aid of a faculty member, Fluke recently made her case to Georgetown undergrads. All of the above may be complicit in misinforming Georgetowns student body.
Although the event was closed to the press, an intern from the Young Americas Foundation, who attends Georgetown, provided an account to the Cybercast News Service (CNS). The majority of Flukes talk centered around her insistence that contraception is a critical component of womens preventative healthcare services, Laurel Zigarelli recounted. She referenced the need for contraceptives to combat ovarian cysts, hormonal imbalances, endometriosis a lot of medical issues, as she so eloquently stated. Fluke told stories of women that she knew who suffered lasting medical conditions, implying that these tragedies were a direct result of a lack of access to free contraception.
Fluke then had the audacity to insist that Georgetowns student health insurance policy must change simply because most students dont realize that contraception coverage will not be on their insurance when they arrive at Georgetown. Fluke said, Were used to having contraception readily available.
Partly as a reaction to the lecture, more than 100 concerned Hoyas, past and present, wrote a letter to Georgetown president John J. DeGioia requesting clarification of the schools policy. The primary issue is whether religious institutions such as Georgetown University should be mandated to provide contraceptive services, they wrote. Many university students seem to be unaware of both the Catholic Churchs teaching on providing hormonal prescriptions for medical conditions and the universitys exception within its insurance policy for such conditions.
DeGioia responded with an open letter of his own.

what happened to being on Mommy and Daddy’s health insurance until age 26?
Or are these “kids” older than that?
As long as the federal government is against Medical Marijuana, they have no room to talk on what should and should not be provided, health care wise.
Under aware of the catholic church’s policies?
Who is she kidding? The catholic policy on BC isn’t exactly a secret.
I’m saddened at how poorly catechized the students at Jesuit Universities are. The time is well past for the Vatican to take over this management of this education.
The Vatican and the Jesuits have been in an undeclared conflict for at least the last thousand years, more or less.
Shouldn’t the school be expelling Ms. F(l)ucke for moral terpitude?
Isn’t what Ms. F(l)ucke is suggesting the assistance of the commission of sin?
Isn’t Carnal Knowledge a sin outside of marriage?
Lest we forget, fluke is a class of parasitic worms. Just sayin’. sd
