Abortion activists Sandra Fluke, best known for pushing the HHS mandate that forces religious groups to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs, is “strongly considering” a run for Congress.
Sandra Fluke said she’s “strongly considering running” for Henry Waxman’s House seat after the longtime California Democrat announced he would retire from Congress this year.
“I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” Fluke told Southern California radio station KPCC Thursday. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”
Fluke became a household name after she spoke out in favor of women’s contraception coverage under Obamacare. Her LinkedIn page identifies her as a “social justice advocate” in the greater Los Angeles area.
Last year, Fluke had a rather odd view of the legal challenge Hobby Lobby and other plaintiffs are bringing to the Supreme Court against the Obamacare birth control mandate.
She thinks if the high court allows them the ability to engage in their First Amendment freedoms to not be forced to pay for birth control or abortion-causing drugs that other groups or companies will not want to pay for blood transfusions.
