Sandra Fluke What's her background?

Posted on 03/02/2012 11:14:49 AM PST by airedale

There has been 0 reporting on the background of Sandra Fluke. What's her background? Who are her parents? What do they do? Georgetown is about $70k for tuition per year without scholarship + room and board, books etc. Even with a scholarship it's still a ton of $$$. Is she financing her law school or are her parents or her trust fund paying for it? Droms are about $20k per year so where she living? At home?

The only pictures I've seen of her from the hearings where she's wearing a suit. What's she normally wear? Inexpensive clothing or pricy duds?

Is she really financially so strapped she can't afford birth control or is that a lie?

Not much or anything at all based on the frequency she has sex, by her own admission.

She probably has a mattress on wheels that she rolls to all her classrooms.

What is it about ugly women? They’re always out there looking for causes or rights to fight for. Too bad they can’t be in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. Maybe if they received free plastic surgery they’d shut up.

I’m surprised that any man would be caught with Fluke.

Ugly women scare me. Rush is right about them.

@Fluke testimonyA friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome and has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by Georgetown insurance because it’s not intended to prevent pregnancy.
Is her "friend" her lesbian lover?

Sandra Fluke on Limbaugh: I was stunned, then outraged

Fluke explained that her friend, a lesbian, could not afford the oral contraception she needed to prevent ovarian cysts from forming because her university refused to pay for them on religious grounds.

@Limbaugh Calls Student Denied Spot At Contraception Hearing A ‘Slut’

While it’s probably not even worth engaging with Limbaugh on the facts, Fluke’s testimony was about a friend who is a lesbian and needed birth control for non-sexual medical reasons, so he’s only wrong about three times over, and offensive many more times over than that.

Just sourcing so don't complain about where it came from.

I wondered if she was launching a political career and using Rush’s comment (or, for that matter, any conservative’s comments on her lifestyle) as a publicity springboard.

Her ‘indignation’ is a ruse. As a 30-year old woman who should be financially responsible for herself at this time in her life, I’m sure she is completely aware that literal handfuls of free contraception are readily available at community free clinics as well as at “over 800 offices” of Planned Parenthood. Yet she insists that her college, which she should have been long graduated from, provide contraceptive means on a silver platter, instead of having to take a bus ride for a freebie? Is this the ‘new’ way to launch a political career or what? Will she be insisting the college provide her a husband next?

If she is so smart, and simply loves to love, there is a very easy remedy for her plight.

She can just have a donation jar by the bedside, for -ahem- contraception costs and the like.

Nothing fancy or spendy you understand, just for the covering of ongoing costs and such.

RUSH: What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps. (interruption) The johns? We would be the johns? No! We're not the johns. (interruption) Yeah, that's right. Pimp's not the right word. Okay, so she's not a slut. She's "round heeled." I take it back.

Good find, Para-Ord.45, of the Jammie Wearing Fools post.

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...."

The GateWay Pundit now linking to same source as thread below:

THREAD: Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke ( Rush & the Slut Fluke, Mega Leftist)

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?

I have no idea how much birth control pills cost but someone stated on the news the other day that they were around $1.00 each. Did she state she was spending $3000.00 per year for the pills? Divide that by 365 days in a year. That would come to a little over $8.00 per day. Sorry but I don't think the pills cost that much. If she is really spending that much money you have to wonder what else she is taking. This is all a setup to get folks to feel sorry for the girls

Of course the left doesn't want to look at the niceties of logic in which there is no truth quotient to a question but only to a declarative statement. They're too busy trying to use it to promote their agenda. And the only declarative statement he made was that, okay, she is not a slut, only round-heeled.
