Yep, she’s an activist, not your average college student.
This particular news doesn’t surprise me at all. The left has turned Sandra Fluke into the poster child for their ‘GOP War on Women’ campaign. Right now they have their momentum, but the majority isn’t buying it.
As many have already uncovered Sandra Fluke she is, in reality, a 30 year old long time liberal activist who enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students’ birth control. She has been pushing for mandated coverage of contraceptives at Georgetown for at least three years according to the Washington Post.
However, as I discovered today, birth control is not all that Ms. Fluke believes private health insurance must cover. She also, apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if “gender reassignment” surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance. She makes these views clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law.
The title of the article, which can be purchased in full here, is Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ Persons and was published in the Journal’s 2011 Annual Review. I have posted a transcript of the section I will be quoting from here.
Never had a real job, multiple activist positions on the resume’, law school, a little sketchy on the background right down to her age.
Sound like anybody we know? That’s right, Fluke is on the fast track to a White House position. It really wouldn’t surprise me. The Democrats will do anything to win and if adding Fluke to the administration to be a spokeswoman for woman for whatever, they’ll gladly add her.
