The real issue here is Obama’s attack on the constitution and religious liberty.

The world is spinning out of control and the spin rate is accelerating.
Having to pay for your own contraceptives has suddenly become a national crisis. In one way it is beyond belief and in another it is totally predictable.
Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student at Georgetown law school, in testimony before a congressional committee argued that she and forty percent of her fellow students are “struggling financially” because they have to pay for their own contraceptives.
The Democrat-media complex, rather than laughing in her face, is making Ms. Fluke a hero. She even got a phone call from President Obama urging her on.
