We all know the answer to that one. She’s the latest recipient of the legendary “15 minutes of fame,” and she is surely making the most of it. Fluke is the Georgetown Law student who was invited to Nancy Pelosi’s little publicity stunt to bemoan the fact that she isn’t getting free contraceptives. She is now enjoying and, I must say, making the absolute most of her 15 minutes.
Though the Obama administration's decision to force church-based institutions to provide "access" to contraception as part of their health plans was intolerant and unconstitutional and gratuitously divisive, events have proved the move to be brilliant politics.
On The Ed Show, Sandra Fluke responds to Rush Limbaugh's 'attacks' on her.
With the exception of Catholics and others in the religious community that closely follow such issues, few people took note of the Obama administration's rhetorical shift from "freedom of religion" to "freedom of worship" in 2010.
This is, after all, an administration that wants to dictate what foods we eat, what lightbulbs we use, what cars we drive, even how our toilets flush.
President Obama's recent attacks on religious freedom through ObamaCare have far broader implications than the immediate crisis. The attacks not only strike at the very rights of conscience our Founding Fathers sought to protect via the First Amendment. The threat is also due to the underlying hostility to pregnancy and children that the president encoded into federal law.
This just in: the Catholic Church is not a religious organization.
There is another horripilation on the campaign trail. Someone has told a joke that has roused the virtue police.
When many people think about Planned Parenthood, they think about death: especially the 330,000 deaths the nation’s largest abortion provider wrought via their scalpels, syringes, and vacuum devices last year.
I rarely find myself disagreeing with Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute, but I think he's obscuring his own point in the column he wrote for the New York Post over the weekend.
Welcome to the real ObamaCare, whereby a handful of leftists in Washington, D.C., impose the views of their big-money donors on more than 300 million Americans. If the Obama mandate for contraception remains intact, then liberals will next demand that Americans pay for other objectionable items that are not really medical care.
A strong move is on to demonize and marginalize social conservatives, a move that originates from the political left but is being aided by some on the right, a move that is based on assumptions that better describe the leftist accusers than they do their targets.
