    Of course she has an agenda, and she's had it since the day she enrolled. Her agenda is to force the church to conform.

    Writes a Georgetown graduate and "former chief counsel of the House Subcommittee on the Constitution", Cathy Cleaver Ruse:

    "I was not Catholic when I attended Georgetown Law, but I certainly knew the university was. So did Ms. Fluke. She told the Washington Post that she chose Georgetown knowing specifically that the school did not cover drugs that run contrary to Catholic teaching in its student health plans. During her law school years she was a president of "Students for Reproductive Justice" and made it her mission to get the school to give up one of the last remnants of its Catholicism. Ms. Fluke is not the "everywoman" portrayed in the media.
    "Georgetown Law School has flung wide its doors to the secular world. It will tolerate and accommodate all manner of clubs and activities that run contrary to fundamental Catholic beliefs. But it is not inclined to pay for or provide them. And it has the right to do so—to say "this far and no further."

    "At the hearing of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee chaired by Nancy Pelosi, Sandra Fluke testified as a victim. Having to buy your own contraception is a burden, she said. She testified that all around her at Georgetown she could see the faces of students who were suffering because of Georgetown's refusal to abandon its Catholic principles."

    When Fluke got on The View and told everyone to go to Media Matters for more information she proved beyond all doubt that she is nothing more than an activist and this whole thing was a plot by the democrats to divert attention from obama's disasters.

    "Should Ms. Fluke give up a cup or two of coffee at Starbucks each month to pay for her birth control, or should Georgetown give up its religion? Even a first-year law student should know where the Constitution comes down on that."

    But I think it's more than that...this is the left TELLING US that they want to subvert the constitution, that they think the government DOES have a right to dictate religion and shut down free speech, and they intend to see it done.

    So let me get this straight: You'd be OK with me calling your wife a slut and a prostitute, and demanding video of her schlepping someone, if I learned that she was an advocate for something I opposed?

    I swear to God, conservative men are going out of there way to piss off every daughter, mother, sister and grandmother in America. Keep it up, folks! Nice work. You know women are allowed vote, right? amiright?

    None of the 28 companies that have pulled their sponsorship from Rush's show are part of the government.
