Lib Hero Sandra Fluke: Free Birth Control Is a Natural Human Right – I Won’t Be Silenced

Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi both called Sandra Fluke after her brave testimony.

Sandra Fluke, the far left activist who won’t give up two vanilla lattes a month to pay for her own birth control pills, promised today that she will not be silenced. In her CNN editorial Fluke also argued that free birth control was a natural human right.
CNN reported:

Last month, students from several Catholic universities gathered to send a message to the nation that contraception is basic health care. I was among them, and I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy.

I joined these students in speaking at a media event because I believe that stories of how real women are affected are the most powerful argument for access to affordable, quality reproductive health care services.

I also joined these students because now is a critical time to raise this issue in our public consciousness.

Thanks to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, preventive care services, including contraception, will be covered by private insurance plans without co-pays or deductibles. If appropriately implemented, this important law will finally guarantee women access to contraception, regardless of the religious affiliation of their workplace or school.

By now, many have heard the stories I wanted to share thanks to the congressional leaders and members of the media who have supported me and millions of women in speaking out.

Because we spoke so loudly, opponents of reproductive health access demonized and smeared me and others on the public airwaves. These smears are obvious attempts to distract from meaningful policy discussions and to silence women’s voices regarding their own health care.

These attempts to silence women and the men who support them have clearly failed. I know this because I have received so many messages of support from across the country — women and men speaking out because they agree that contraception needs to be treated as a basic health care service…

…Restricting access to such a basic health care service, which 99% of sexually experienced American women have used and 62% of American women are using right now, is out of touch with public sentiment. In fact, more than 60% of Americans support this regulation and affordable access to contraception, according to the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.

Attacking me and women who use contraception by calling us prostitutes and worse cannot silence us.

I am proud to stand with the millions of women and men who recognize that our government should legislate according to the reality of our lives — not for ideology.

    She’s about 23 minutes into her 15, now go away you joke of a Socialist prop. America is sick of the Ivy League mafia types whining about what you think you’re entitled to.

  • JimmyT

    And I totally agree with her. As every one knows, abstinence is the best birth control known to man and it is free. Try it Sandra, it’s work every time.

  • Liz

    Yucky. Nothing like begging for…..pills.

  • Neanderthal

    But I don’t want to pay for her sexual activities. When did “basic health care” become a Right, and in which founding document would I find that? It would seem to me that food would be a priority before sexual activity. What do Feminists have to say about that? When will I be forced to buy Sandra lunch?

  • coolidgerules

    Keep the slut talking- the longer she’s out there making an ass out herself and her ridiculous cause, she will make a mistake. Just another communist suicide bomber. She’ll make speeches and decrees but will debate no one on this issue

    “opponents of reproductive health access demonized and smeared me and others on the public airwaves”

    Couple of notes:

    1. “public airwaves” wordsmithing is particularly fascinating: You can tell throughout her speeches that she has a professional agency writing for her, setting up offense-garnering memes across the text. This one is a link to an upcoming FCC play where, if Limbaugh doesn’t quit or get fired (which is unlikely), Obama will give his fake grumble, roll up the sleeves on his $2500 shirt, and take “firm executive action” to make the FCC dispose of these people on the airwaves who just won’t self-police. (You just have to know that Anita “Let me show you 100 flowers!” Dunn is beyond overjoyed to be getting even with those in the independent media who were instrumental in exposing her Maoist death cult background).

    2. Being called names: I think Ms. Fluke is rather confused on whether these are bad or good names. A slut is a woman who has sex whenever she wants to, which is frequent and often, is not limited to the paternalistic dictates of a single male partner, and rejects other moralizing commands in her orientation and conduct. Is this not a description of the ideal progressive sexual norm? To be a slut is to be an individual liberated from moralities chains! (And no, slut does not disparage women; we all have male friends who are called “sluts” as well, often in a highly complimentary way). Being called a prostitute, while alarming Anita Dunn through its Capitalistic connections, is only correct in the current pre-Second Revolution society where capital is confiscated (by force if necessary) from individuals in order to buy Ms. Fluke her supply of thousands of condoms. But in Anita Dunn’s world, there won’t be prostitutes as there won’t be money to pay for them. Technically however, Ms. Fluke’s conduct does meet the definition today.

    I am confused by the current feminist approach. Are we for choice~meaning we can choose to abort-choose not too, or are we for nanny to pay for us not to get pregnant-so then we don’t have choice?

    It is so hard to line up with folks that do not have a moral compass.

    Hmm. How about a few wise actions…choose responsibility. Your body~your choice to have sexual relations, your choice to abort. My choice is to not pay for your choice.

    She is just a left wing slut that needs to STFU and go away.

    Of all the liberal idiots trotted out into the public eye over the years, this one is in a class by herself.

  • mackykam

    Time to “FLUKE OFF” girl, or just stop “FLUKING!”

  • Moonbat_One

    If she keeps this up and the Dims don’t see Obama’s numbers improve, she’s going to become radioactive like Cindy Sheehan.

  • Peckerwood

    Doubling down on pathetic…

    I am your slave for life mr government. Just give me ma birth pills. I demand it.

    I do not think Ms. Fluke (aka: The Flukster) goes far enough. For instance, Ms. Fluke wants women to be paid to have sex, via free contraception, paid for by others. Thus abstinence is being disenfranchised. The disenfranchised among us need subsidy, I say. Ergo, Natural Human Rights are being violated.


    Condoms are a form of birth control: Free Condoms are a Natural Human Right.!

    Food is a thing people desire more than sex: Free food for all is a Natural Human Right.!

    Alcohol is often a thing related to sex: Free booze is a Natural Human Right.!

    Coffee has been shown to be beneficial to one’s sex life: Free Coffee is a Natural Human Right.!

    Some people like to have sex in cars: Free back seats are a Natural Human Right.!

    Some people like to have sex in different climates: Free World Travel is a Natural Human Right.!

    People often have sex inside buildings: Free buildings for all is a Natural Human Right.!


  • Rob Crawford

    She gets free pills, why shouldn’t other people get free sex?

  • 2centsworth

    Abstinance is free (and a choice- a twofer, yes?)… Fluke’s problem solved!

  • Fuquay Steve

    We want more Fluke!!! Keep her talking – by the time the left realizes she is a negative, they will have elevated her to Joan of Arc status.

  • Nick

    What the fluke! She must be psychotic. That is crazy, her friends have suffered dire health consequences due to not being able to get free contraception? Baffling. We are going off the rails on a crazy train.

  • Patty

    She is a no body who was thrown into the mix by I believe Pelosi. And for Pelosi if this awful Obama care is repeal I do believe her face will start melting.

    You see, this is a revolution of sorts and it propagator are those who follow the radical views that all people must have birth control and be at the feet of government owned health care.

    Fluke take expensive trips and she is not a poor child. She has unfortunately been in the public eye for the Liberal Propaganda movement that is part of the many inventions of Obama administration. For instance the players of Occupied are Van Jones and Ayers.

    The mission is to destroy our faith, hold others accountable who are dismantling Obama care. And this goes beyond bias.

    Read this, it is so appropriate and it does speak to Clinton and his escapades and Hillary. So much like Fluke. Using others to make themselves more powerful but for all the wrong reasons.

    Time will catch up to Fluke, she will forever be know as “That Slut”.

    An aspirin held between your knees Sandra, you’ll find it very cost effective. Just saying…..
