Georgetown Becomes Fluketown: Catholic Law School to Teach Abortion Advocacy

Secular feminist media outlets never saw rational objections to the conflict between Georgetown University as a college affiliated with the Catholic Church and Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke demanding insurance coverage for contraceptions and gender-reassignment surgery.

So they won't care about Matthew Archbold's new Georgetown scoop for Catholic Education Daily. A class at Georgetown Law next semester "will have students working with a pro-abortion rights advocacy organization, taught by that organization's senior counsel, Kelli Garcia."  The project is advocating the implementation of Obamacare:

Garcia, a radical pro-abortion rights lawyer, wrote the poem titled, "Planned Parenthood, Why Do I Love Thee?" in 2011.  The poem was part of a larger effort by Garcia and her group to halt the potential defunding of Planned Parenthood, which is the nation's largest abortion provider.

The Georgetown law class, titled Regulatory Advocacy: Women and the Affordable Care Act, will have students working with the National Women's Law Center (NWLC), "to develop projects that will assist in the organization's regulatory advocacy efforts." Students will also have the opportunity to participate in strategy meetings and conference calls between NWLC and partnering organizations...

Garcia has boldly stated her personal views on the legal battle over the HHS mandate, writing about one judge’s decision in favor of the mandate, “Score one for sanity.”  She even wrote that institutions that are refusing to provide contraceptive coverage are simply using their religion to discriminate against women.
