Sandra Fluke Issues Statement On Limbaugh’s Comments And Public Support

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who was the subject of Rush Limbaugh’s remarks Wednesday, issued the following statement on Limbaugh and the support she has received:

[“I thank the thousands of women and men, including members of Congress, Georgetown University students and faculty, and total strangers of all political stripes across the country who have offered kind words and support following recent egregious personal attacks.

“We are fortunate to live in a democracy where everyone is entitled to their own opinions regarding legitimate policy differences. Unfortunately, numerous commentators have gone far beyond the acceptable bounds of civil discourse.

“No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices.

“The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women’s health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced.”]

Fluke testified at a hearing a week ago in which she talked about the burden of paying for contraception out of pocket. Limbaugh used those comments to call her a “slut” and a “prostitute.” Over 75 Congressional Democrats Thursday called on House Speaker John Boehner to condemn Limbaugh’s remarks.

Remember Rwanda?

That small African country from whence recent one of our last genocide movies sprung? The object of Clintonian apologies, and current service? At a population of now, around 70% women, and a country with many struggles still ahead, Rwanda has achieved this:

Tuesday night my Hubby and I were getting ready for his hernia surgery, so I didn’t get to do much more than watch the Convention on PBS. I do want to mention a couple of things, however. I don’t recall ever having a well-spoken sister give voice as character witness to a presumptive nominee before. David Brooke said again that Obama needs to tell the voters who he is. DAVID, WE KNOW WHO HE IS!!! What a truly odd thing that we voters must again be subject to the homilies of family, when what we want is to know once and for all whether “Hope and Change” has any sort of resonance beyond the fairy tale Camelot Re-enactment. It isn’t so odd that the Obamacons object to the critics. (more…)
