Meet The Georgetown Law Student That Rush Limbaugh Called A 'Slut'
business insider ^ | 3/2/12 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 03/02/2012 3:50:07 PM PST by Nachum

The contraception controversy erupted in Washington today over a spate of inflammatory remarks from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Everyone from House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama to the President of Georgetown University has been drawn into the fray.

The uproar is centered around Sandra Fluke, a third-year Georgetown University law school student who was barred from testifying at a recent Congressional hearing on the Obama administration's policy requiring religiously-affiliated institutions to provide contraception in employee health plans.

Fluke eventually testified before a House Democratic panel, telling a sad story about a female friend who lost an ovary because Georgetown's student insurance would not cover the birth control she needed to treat a medical condition.

Her testimony sparked the ire of Rush Limbaugh, who accused Fluke of being a "slut" and a "prostitute" who is "having so much sex she's going broke."

I think I’m going to boycott Fox after this...I just listed to two twits, one from the christin Science Monitor and another no name on Bret Baier’s rountable (one of the few segments I stil watch, up until today) condemn the Limbaugh remarks. AS IF...no mention of the vulgar and vitriolic rhetoric that comes daily from the Left. I am so sick of the doube standard..and kudos to Rush for calling a spade a spade. Gloves off this time, kids, I have had it.

They did run a clip of Rush asking why they weren’t outraged when they called Sarah Palin a “c” word.

I'd intended to comment, but words are failing me here.

She knows a woman who didn't seek help after being raped because she "thought" the medical exam might not be free!

Okay. I visited a bunch of sites today. Lib sites. They claim she was talking about a lesbo friend of hers who couldn’t get birth control meds. However, and here is my question; a doc prescribed birth control pills to this “female” for the prevention of ovarian cysts. Is it true that an insurance company wouldn’t pay for the “medicine” she needed? It was for treating a medical condition, having nothing to do with birth prevention.

Sex should be free.

If a person can't afford to have sex the way they want to have it, it's their human right to have someone else pay for their sex. It's only fair...

Those who don't have sex when they want to have sex because of financial concerns just aren't exercising their God given rights given to us under the Constitution.

I don’t believe the “friend who lost an ovary” story for one minute. Oral contraceptives can be prescribed as treatment for any number of medical situations, in which case they are covered as medically necessary, even when plans do not pay for ELECTIVE CONTRACEPTION.

So I have to pay for the worlds' bc pills because one woman was stupidly mistaken about the parameters of her insurance?

According to a bio on Georgetown's website, Fluke's professional background is in domestic violence and human trafficking advocacy. At Georgetown law, she is the former president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, an editor for the Journal of Gender and the Law, and vice president of the Women's Legal Alliance. She has a bachelor's degree in Feminist, Gender & Sexuality studies from Cornell.

In other words, she's an ignorant brainwashed slut.

There was a kinder, gentler time when gentlemen didn’t refer to women like this as “sluts”.

They simply referred to them as The Town Pump.

I suppose we should be grateful that Fluke and her ilk aren’t demanding that we pay for their rum and coke to get in the mood and a supply of K-Y Jelly to ease things along if a particularly well-hung customer presents himself.

Memo. If somehow Sandra Fluke graduates and becomes a lawyer do not hire her. She has displayed a large amount of ineptitude in not being able to obtain birth control products which cost less per day than the triple venti vanilla mocha lattes she sucks down, not to mention the margaritas, vodkas, and jello shots she absorbs on the weekends.

it’s getting weirder for non-American feminists to be around American feminists:

Most non-American “feminists” might say stuff like:

1. “They beat me regularly cuz the dowry wasn’t enough...they later set me on fire...” or,

2. “I spoke to the American soldiers, so the Taliban cut my nose off...” or,

3. “I’m not permitted to operate any car, not even in an emergency, and no doctor can see my nude body, if I’m sick...”

But the AMERICAN feminist —how is SHE repressed...?

1. Lesbo WITCHES are repressed —cuz people get weirded out by witchcraft.

2. West Point has no witches’ coven, where they can worship

3. Georgetown represses women cuz they don’t buy contraceptives for women

THIS IS LIKE THE TWIGHLIGHT ZONE..!

Dittos. That lady from the Christian Science Monitor was stupid. She misstated and mistook Rush's comments. I'm surprised Brett Baier did not correct her. The Special Report is not so special without Charles Kruthammer.

I have PCOS and was prescribed the pill for the condition. I found out ten years later, while trying to conceive, that the pill does not cure the problem it only masks the symptoms. I got rid of PCOS myself by following a low GI diet, avoiding soy, and avoiding hair and body care products containing parabens. I did a few more dietary things as well that includes eating lots of protein and avoiding anything labeled sugar-free, fat-free, low-fat, and low-cal. Essentially, I eat like my grandparents ate. This woman could have done the same thing, but that would take personal responsibility. We see what they think of that concept.

I've seen a lot of far lefty stuff coming from the Christian Science Monitor. Is their name just a red herring and they're really a progressive rag? Topic: The Christian Science Monitor is neither Christian nor scientific...discuss amongst yourselves.

Fluke's professional background is in domestic violence and human trafficking advocacy.

Limbaugh's misogynistic vitriol has made the 30-year-old feminist virtually untouchable, and Democrats couldn't be happier.

The female writer of this article, as expected, lives in her own little world of reality.

Virtually everyone I've spoken with on this subject have been in total agreement that this female is an ignorant twit with an agenda........

Just HOW would a woman make a living with some kind of “degree in any of those “studies”??

Other than “ginning up” phony lawsuits and such against decent men , colleges, churches, and businesses, perhaps.

As it turns out, she’s not just any old twenty-something coed. She’s a thirty year old activist who enrolled at Georgetown because of their policy not to provide free contraception. Jammie Wearing Fools has the details/
