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?

and the $1,000 (or $3,000 - I’ve read conflicting reports)

It was $3k for the three year duration of the law degree, or $1K per year.

Unless she skipped undergraduate school, she couldn’t be a 3L at 23. Assuming she entered college right out of high school, went for 4 years, and then entered law school right away, then she would have to be at least 25 years old to be a 3rd year law student. 24 possibly, but not 23.

I think the ultimate goal is to have Planned Parenthood in every school in the country....private or public.

My hometown just voted to give free condoms to high schoolers....along with attached services. Since it came about becuase of the local HIV and disease stats, i'd say we're promoting gays and "women's needs" at the same time.

Most schools don't have a full time school nurse but they have money to hire "sex counselors"??? God help us.

“Rush handed the enemy a bat and they are beating us bloody with it.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know where you two are going with this. I do.

You believe this “Slut” incident is yet another diversionary tactic being used by the liberals against the SoCons to get us to lose focus on the real issues. This all began with George Steffie bringing contraception and the Catholic Church into the national consciousness. Now everyone is all chosing sides over Fluke v. Limbaugh.

And add in a healthy dose of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Birthergate, and we are right where they want us, right?

WRONG.

There is very little economic difference between liberals and the RINO’s in Washington these days. The only hope we have to make a real change for our country and turn it aroud is with social issues.

Like being outraged with a slut like Fluke.

And if that gets us bloody, beaten and defeated in November, so be it. We sure ain’t gonna win on the tax and economic conerns. Only if and when we have leaders with the moral integrity to stand up and call a spade a spade will we then have a leader with the correct economic sense as well.

Another thing to look at is just how brazen the dems were, knowing well that all this would come out. They knew from the very beginning that all this would be hidden by the ministry of propaganda (formerly known as the "main-stream media), and other than alternate media and conservative talk shows, they know they have nothing to worry about. The fact that they perpetrated a fraud will never be revealed to the vast majority of the American public. The fact that it was a bunch of dems running the circus where she "testified" means she wasn't under oath and wasn't actually testifying before congress, so no laws were broken.

They're playing the majority of the American public as what they are... Useful idiots. And even when they're informed, they don't care.

Bill O'Reilly pronounces it "Fluck."

Which brings to mind the famous anecdote about the British actress Diana Dors:

Diana Dors once asked and readily agreed to open a fete in her home town of Swindon. She lunched with the local vicar, during which, she let slip that her real name was Diana Fluck. The vicar became somewhat worried about his planned speech.

After lunch, they arrived at the appointed time. The vicar began and uttered these immortal words. 'Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you, our star guest, we all love her and especially as she is our local girl. I therefore feel it right to introduce her by her real name, Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss Diana Clunt.

Planned Parenthood = not free

How Do I Get Birth Control Pills? How Much Do Birth Control Pills Cost?

First, you’ll need to get a prescription. Visit a Planned Parenthood health center, a clinic, or a private health care provider for a prescription. Your health care provider will discuss your medical history with you, check your blood pressure, and give you any other medical exam that you may need. If you need an exam, it may cost about $35–$250.

Birth control pills may be purchased with a prescription at a drugstore or clinic. They cost about $15–$50 a month. 

Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income. Most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your health care costs. 

Call your local Planned Parenthood health center to get specific information on costs.

“Planned Parenthood = not free”

DO THEY HAVE TO BE FREE???!!! Geez, what is with people? I don’t care if they are free or not. I know several women who go to the local Health Center for their exam and 1 years worth of pills. The cost is $12. AGAIN - 12 DOLLARS for a YEAR’S SUPPLY and EXAM. I think ANYONE can afford $12 for a year. And guess what, all of those women have health insurance. So their employer pays for health insurance, tax payers pay for the health centers and all they have to do is pay 12 EFFIN dollars. Get a grip. $1 per month, that’s close enough to free for me. Is that too much for you to pay? If you can’t afford $12 a year, you have much bigger problems. Even if you pay your $35-$250 for an exam and $15 per month. So what!!!

If you really can’t afford $1 per month or you can’t find a guy to pay 20 cents for a rubber to have sex with you, I feel really sorry for you.

I might get behind a plan which has taxpayers and employers pay for mandatory permanent sterilization of anyone who thinks that they should bear no responsibility for themselves. That would be a good start to ridding us of the leaches on the left.

To recap the story of Ms. Fluke and her birth control problem -- let's see:
1. Ms. Fluke attends Georgetown Law School that costs over $40,000 per year, not including room and board that are extra. She spends $1,000 on birth control per year because the school health service does not provide it free. That means at $1 per condom, Ms. Fluke is having sex 2.74 times per day, 24/7/365. When does she find time to go to class or study?

2. The Washington, DC Health Department issues free condoms. Ms. Fluke and her poor female student sisters could go there and get their freebies.

3. Understandably, Ms. Fluke cannot charge her professors for sex in exchange for passing grades, so she ought to charge her other hookups a minimum of $2-5 to cover the cost of the condoms — one for an emergency stash and one to go.

4. If Ms. Fluke should get very experienced by her numerous hookups, she might consider becoming the second Heidi Fleiss [aka Hollywood Madam] to the Washington, DC movers and shakers. Heidi made hundreds of thousands — even millions — of tax free dollars running a top-of-the-line “escort service” for the rich and famous. Now, consider how much Heidi Fleiss made in comparison with the most expensive lawyer hourly rate. No contest. Heidi Fleiss wins and the lawyers lose big time.

But Heidi was running a traditional business, dealing with actual needs. Miss Fluke--unless she is an unwed mother, I will not use the disparaging Ms.--is a professional agitator--a form of parasite, now all too common in contemporary America.

I do not know enough about Heidi's business practices to form a moral judgment; but it seems a stretch to even suggest that she ever stooped to the level of Miss Fluke; or was the sort of exhibitionist that Miss Fluke appears to have been--which itself violates traditional moral codes..

There are terms that describe this that are not so derogatory and demeaning. Plus, not every girl who is on birth control would fit the denotation of the word “slut” either. Any girl who decides to be sexually active might want birth control, even if they only sleep with one guy and are in a committed relationship.

WHich I’m sure some people would still say qualifies as being a “slut”. But my point wasn’t even whether a term would apply — I’m talking about the OUTCOME of the statement. I don’t want to get into an argument over whether women should be called names or not, it’s enough for me to point out that the results of that action have distracted us from the real issue, and given the democrats a big leg up, and helped hide the facts of THIS story we are reading here.

And yes, his statements have had the effect of helping the democrats label the issue as “men trying to demean women”, and if you don’t see that, it’s because you don’t want to believe the facts. Not that we ARE doing that, just that this is what the story has been turned into, because of the statement.

As usual you are wrong.

If you read my post (and actually understood it) you would not have had to presume anything about "where I am going with this". I went there already.

I am furious that Rush went off the rails and surrendered a winning argument by getting personal and ugly.

Even worse - this was called an “informal hearing” - which while perhaps controversial, has no effect on already passed legislation.

Rush has always been good being provocative, without making himself the story...he should have stayed on the humorous side.

He could have gotten by just with the “she’s having so much sex...” part - and made his point. (which I think was more about the 3000 dollar figure)

“He shot us all in the foot.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speak for yourself, Surrender Monkey. As for me - my foot is fine.

You would prefer that Rush had used more “civil” language and as a result, this debate would not have been national news? You would prefer that Fluke had gotten away with what she did without a strong condemnation from anyone on the right?

Look. Because Rush called her a Slut - it proves to the leftists that we SoCons are NOT just going to sit by and swallow load after load of the social attacks THEY bombard us with daily.

I’m so sorry such strong language on Rush’s part offended your delicate sensibilities, and I’m sorry that you obviously agree wtih wimps like Boehner who called Rush’s remarks “inappropriate”, but I am happy as hell that someone like Rush has the cajones to simply state an obvious and fundamental truth; Fluke is a Slut.

So “Mr Shot in the Foot”; you just limp over to the sidelines and let us real conservatives kick some butt.

And since she wasnt actually testifying...why would EIB give her such a stage for her message?

She testified last week.

Got that - testified at an “informal” hearing...i.e. not really “testimony” - it was like a make up exam after Issa barred her from testifying on Feb 23.

From the Thursday, March 1 NBC Nightly News, closed-captioning corrected against the video by the MRC’s Brad Wilmouth:

BRIAN WILLIAMS: Now, some may find some of the comments in this next story offensive, but then, that’s really part of the point. There is a growing firestorm over comments made by Rush Limbaugh about a young woman caught up in the middle of this fight over birth control in Washington. And tonight, a lot of women are expressing their outrage. We get details on this tonight from NBC’s Anne Thompson.

ANNE THOMPSON: This debate is marked by powerful images. The all-male panel at a congressional hearing on contraception coverage.

SANDRA FLUKE, GEORGETOWN LAW SCHOOL STUDENT: Thank you for calling this hearing on women’s health.

THOMPSON: Sandra Fluke, the 23-year-old Georgetown law student, prohibited from testifying. And now incendiary words from one of the loudest voices in the conservative movement, radio host Rush Limbaugh.
