Obama phones woman called 'slut' by Limbaugh
Politico ^ | 3/2/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 03/02/2012 11:39:13 AM PST by ColdOne

The young woman who was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh got a call Friday from President Obama who voiced support for her pro-birth control advocacy.

"He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women," Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports." She got the call from Obama while in a green room waiting to appear on the show.

"What was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud and that meant a lot because Rush Limbaugh questioned whether or not my family would be proud of me," Fluke said. "So I just appreciated that very much."

Soon after she appeared on TV, Fluke also thanked Obama on her Twitter account. "Thank you @BARACKOBAMA for your call and words of support. It means so much to me and millions of women! #WeWillNotBeSilenced," she wrote.

I have two daughters, ages 29 and 19. I would be humiliated and ashamed if one of my girls represented themselves in public like this Fluke person. What is becoming of us? Does anyone really believe that we are moving in the right direction under the RAT leftist, atheistic rule?

Hi, I’m Sandra Fluke and I can’t afford my sex habits because I am a slut.

Great way for the POTUS to spend his leisure in these non chaotic, non pressing times. Good thing there are not more pressing matters. If people do not see through this gimmicky nonsense I will be sorely saddened and let down by my country brethren.

She is a slut, but that doesn’t mean her family isn’t proud of her. The moral fabric of our country is worn pretty thin, so I sincerly doubt she is held at any semblance of standards.

Hey Sandra, This is Bill Clinton. I just heard and thought I'd call to give you my support.

If you're looking for an internship my company's insurance will supply you with all the birth control you need. If ya know what I mean. Call me.

“Looks like a ‘flounder’ to me.”

It’s in the “flounder family”.

Re the poem:

I’ve read it several times. Best I can see, it’s pretty gay stuff. Why didn’t O suppress this? It wasn’t in his Ayers authored autobiography, was it?

A little smaller than the flounder, names are interchangeable.

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...."

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?

Excellent comment. I think Rush made a big mistake using gutter language to criticize the woman. He will pay dearly and make the woman a hero among liberals.

Her parents should be proud that she advertised her availability to the world at large?

Someone posted this on Yahoo...I think is very funny.........Fluke said "Contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school," she said. "For a lot of students like me who are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary." So her complaint is she wants somebody else to pay for her pills so she can have all the sex she wants! Oh really. I had to spend nearly $20,000 during college so I could have sex. I had to buy beer, wine, dinners, jewelry, flowers, etc and pay for gas and cover charges to get into clubs/bars just to find drunk, willing women to have sex with. Oh, and by the way, I had to pay for my own condoms for the girls like Fluke who didn't want to pay for their own contraceptives! So if Fluke doesn't want to pay for her little pills then she should just quit having sex or trust the guys to bring the rubbers!
