Today Sandra Fluke, the woman deemed unqualified to appear in last week's hearings, testified in support of Women's reproductive rights in a hearing organized by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. I am literally INside of LOVE with Pelosi right now!

This is only a snippet, but Fluke made it clear that access to birth control goes beyond a conservative agenda to legislate women's sex lives. Reproductive rights are about a woman's ability to fully live and control her life. 

Please watch and share with all your friends. I am really tired of seeing the GOP ridiculing women in the media. Fluke speaks with a logical and experienced voice and EVERYONE needs to hear it.
