In February 2012, a Georgetown law student testified before Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. Sandra Fluke spoke about the contraception mandate and women’s health. She pleaded for the new mandate because of student’s suffering from lack of contraceptive coverage and how they suffer financially, medically and emotionally.
Following her testimony, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh referred to Fluke as a slut. Although he later apologized, in fact he was right. Anyone engaging in sexual relations outside of marriage is a fornicator and a slut. However, the public main stream media virtually hung Limbaugh on a cross to crucify him for speaking the truth, while at the same time the same media vociferously defended Fluke and her defense of sexual promiscuity and fornication. It didn’t take long before the media made Fluke a poster girl for the contraception mandate.
Later on, most of the statements Fluke made about contraception and herself were proven to be false, but that has not derailed poster girl from continuing her rampage to help the socialist liberals push mandated contraception down our throats. After the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties in the lawsuit against having to comply with the contraception mandate, Fluke came out swinging.
Fluke wrote an article that was published in The Washington Post, blasting the court’s decision. She rants about women’s reproductive rights as if it is included in the Bill of Rights.
Fox’s Megyn Kelly appeared on The O’Reilly Factor and responded to Fluke’s whining. First, here is what Fluke stated:
“What this is really about at its base is trying to figure out as many ways as possible to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare.”
Kelly effectively dismantled Fluke’s complaint by responding:
“It hurts. It doesn’t matter how many times you say something, it doesn’t matter if it’s true, but if she says it over and over again people are going to believe it. It’s not true! Just don’t believe that. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about.”
“They limited it in small corporations, these corporations that are basically 50% of the stock is owned by five people or less. Those corporations, and granted it’s about 50% of US corporation, it’s about 90% of US corporations that employs about 50% of the American population, so it’s a lot of corporations that could be affected, but only those that feel strongly about their religious beliefs. Those folks aren’t going to have to provide abortion related drugs. It’s drugs that terminate an already fertilized egg. That’s the only, out of the twenty birth control drugs that are available they still have to cover sixteen. They just said that they don’t want to fund those forms of birth control.”
Fluke reminds me of gay rights activists. If someone has different beliefs than she or they do, it’s the others that have to compromise their beliefs, not Fluke or other liberals. She’s also making blanket statements when in fact that’s not the case.
But let me ask Sandra Fluke about men’s reproductive rights? To begin with, the unborn child is half ours. Shouldn’t men have a say over what happens to the child? In traditional families, it’s the men that provide most of the financial support for raising a child. Men also have a biological stake in creating and raising a child to preserve the family lineage, which is very important to many families.
Fluke talks about inequality against women, but it seems that with all of the things supporting women’s reproductive health that they have a lot more coverage and benefits than men do. The fact is that they want everything and care nothing for men.
