Ms. Sandra Fluke is a law student that now characterizes herself as a “reproductive rights activist,” who decided to wade into the stormy waters of President Obama’s controversial contraceptive mandate by testifying on Capitol Hill Monday, according to Billy Hallowell’s article today in The Blaze.
In doing so, she has become the face of opposition to her own school, renowned Georgetown University. It is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States, founded 223 years ago in 1789, which is described under the “Jesuit and Catholic Identity” section of its website as … “a global research university deeply rooted in the Catholic faith.”
This contraception mandate is an appendage of Obamacare, the roundly hated United States Statute signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, and it violates the long standing doctrine of the Catholic Church, which has been strictly against any type of artificial birth control–particularly abortions since the time of Christ Jesus.
Much like trademark and patent law, the Catholic Church has a hands down historical lock on the history and supremacy of its doctrine, as the term “the Catholic Church” (he katholike ekklesia) was first found in the letter of St Ignatius, dating back to the year 110 A.D., who himself was born just two years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and was a student of John the Apostle–one of the original Twelve Apostles of Christ.
But, notwithstanding 2,000 years of creed, Ms. Fluke feels that it is the “right” of every female student on campus to receive free birth control products.
She aired her demands–as the only witness–testifying on Monday, before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)–effectively choosing to cross swords with the Catholic Church.
Fluke focused on the financial hardships that she and her peers had to endure, as a result of having to shoulder the burden of paying for their own birth control products.
“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy,” referring to the fact that the university doesn’t pay for contraception.
She detailed, among other stories, how one woman felt “embarrassed” and “powerless” at the pharmacy counter when she “learned for the first time” that contraceptives weren‘t covered by the university’s health care plan.
It is incredible that a female student, smart enough to be accepted into Georgetown Law, was unable to review the insurance program coverages document and not discern the fact that it did not offer free contraception–especially at a Catholic University–before going to the student health center.
She is either fabricating her story or, even more sadly, will never pass the Bar Exam.
Moreover, any such female student, who can organize the $45,105 law school tuition and the related annual costs to attend Georgetown, but amazingly finds herself unable to afford that which she had been paying for some up until now, should find great shame in attempting to figuratively put her hands into the pockets of all the other students, staff members and employees at Georgetown–to confiscate their money, to pay for her birth control products.
There is only one thing I can say about the shear audacity displayed by Ms. Fluke–she has obviously been stricken by the dreaded “Obamavirus,” which has affected many vulnerable young minds.
This is probably a direct result of President Barack Obama’s relentless campaigning around the country–almost exclusively to college students on campuses in swing states.
