Coed Who Demanded Free Birth Control From Congress – Insists She’s No Prostitute (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | March 2, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/02/2012 7:38:12 AM PST by Hojczyk

On Thursday night, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz interviewed hot-and-bothered Georgetown coed Sandra Fluke, the woman who went before a Congressional panel and demanded free birth control for herself and her peers. Sandra Fluke, who was mocked by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show this week, insisted she was no prostitute for wanting government to pay for her sex at college. Mediaite reported:

Schultz asked Fluke for her reaction to Limbaugh’s comments:

I guess my reaction is the reaction a lot of women have when they’ve been called these names. Initially you’re stunned but then, very quickly, you’re outraged because this is, historically, the kind of language that is used to silence women, especially women who stand up and say that these are their reproductive health care needs and this is what they need. And what’s been amazing to me today is the outpouring of support. Everyone from members of Congress to Georgetown faculty to so many women who’ve contacted me, and I think it’s clear from what they’ve said that they’re not going to be silenced by this.

Fight on, Sandra. Free birth control is a necessity. It’s a human right.

Mooks are archetypal young males(teens-early 20s) who act like moronic boneheads.

Aha, very good. I'll have to add it to my regular vocabulary.

Shouldn’t this person have a Federal Health Warning tattooed on her forehead and pelvis, explaining “use of this sperm disposal device will be hazardous to you health”?
Not /sarc!

Origin of MOOK

perhaps alteration of moke

I was familiar with “moke,” a street-wise youth. “Mook” seems to indicate “no kind of wise” and no longer a “youth” by any reasonable standard.

perhaps Ms. Flute should read a transcript of her own testimony. She describes herself as a slut - one with no sexual morals very clearly.

Here is a link to Ms. Fluke's testimony. She does not talk about herself at all, and most of her testimony is focused on people who use contraceptives for medical purposes other than preventing pregnancy. Obviously not a reason that the taxpayers should be forced to pay for it (the taxpayer should not be paying for anyone's meds), but I don't see anything in the testimony that indicates "slut." Where, within her testimony, does Ms. Fluke "describe[] herself as a slut - one with no sexual morals very clearly"?

If birth control should be free so she can have sex, shouldn’t plastic surgery be free so I can get sex?

Was watching the White House press conference and Jay said that the President called her and talked to her for several minutes. He doesn’t like the way she has been talked about.
I cannot fricking believe that he took time to call this woman, what is wrong with this country?

How about free sex toys, which would help Obamacare save money by reducing the spread of STDs and the unwelcome creation of those burdensome children? Maybe they can look into forced sterilization and a one-child policy while we’re at it. It’ll be good for the economy!

Isn’t it great to have socialized medicine so our elite bureaucrats can be involved in every single decision we make in our lives under the justification that they can “save money?”

If you read her transcript you see that she almost never speaks of herself. It is all “I have a friend who...” and “Someone I know does...”. Additionally, she claims over and over again that women with medical conditions are being denied care because the care involves them taking birth control pills. That is actually currently illegal. They can deny birth control pills if the intent is contraception, but if the doctor says the woman’s health is at risk, they must provide the needed medication.

This reminds me of the medical marijuana law. As well intended as it might be - with images of terminal cancer patients being held up as examples - the vast majority of the prescriptions written are for “back aches” and “head aches” and “unspecified chronic pain”. Georgetown is probably, rightfully, skeptical of the young woman who wants her oral contraceptives because of bad acne or heavy periods. Ms. Fluke’s examples are primarily of dire cases that would be covered under any existing insurance plan.

Another example of the left exaggerating a problem to open a Pandora’s Box unending largess.

Yes, I think it must be generational, because whore and prostitute are synonymous to me. Women that give it away to anyone for free are usually called “sluts” nowadays, though the PC police want to put a stop to that badly.

Short Chicago Tribune article (with Flukes video) supplies the salient details of the Limbaugh/Flukes firestorm, including:

"Fluke had attempted to testify last month at a congressional committee hearing on the Obama administration’s new rule requiring employers to offer health plans that include birth control coverage, but she was excluded from the panel. She testified instead at a mock hearing organized by Democratic lawmakers...."

Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

Posted by on Mar 02, 2012 at 10:49 am

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy.

During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

July 30 2011

Does your campus’s LSRJ chapter face opposition in regard to facilitating a comprehensive conversation about reproductive justice? Well mine definitely does! While my campus has a mix of people with different backgrounds, and a rich liberal arts community, the Midwest doesn’t exactly scream bleeding liberal. Some LSRJ chapters at conservative campuses face opposition in the form of other, more conservative, student run organizations; some face it from their administrations, and others from their peers, or the community in general. Whatever the opposition is, it can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening.

The question is, how do we combat this conservative opposition and oppression, in order to facilitate a discussion and educate others about the RJ movement? I am obviously not alone in facing these problems, as Sandra Fluke of Georgetown lead a packed room in a discussion on this question at the first Issue Caucus that I attended at the Leadership Institute, LSRJ’s national conference at Berkeley.

While no solution was definitively reached, and I personally don’t begin to have the “right” answer, I was really charged by the discussion and feel many great ideas were presented. Some campus chapters decided to take an adversarial approach, feeling it important to use those “scary” words the opposition fears.

Further background research on Ms Fluke reveals that she got her start in government in New York in 2009.

Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women’s Legal Alliance. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.

My only question is, how does someone go from being a champion of domestic violence issues to an expert of women’s reproductive health issues?
