An anniversary message from my Sister Barbara

In response to the vile remarks of Rush Limbaugh:

13 years ago today I was lying in a hospital bed in Chapel Hill N.C. recovering from major surgery to remove my reproductive "bits" because of ovarian cancer. This cancer was caused by ovarian cysts that all got together and morphed into a football sized mass on each ovary. I have been known to joke that it was like giving birth to twins, but I didn't have to take them home. But it was no joke. This is the same condition Sandra Fluke was testifying about. She didn't want birth control so she could have sex, she wanted it because it prevents the formation of the very ovarian cysts that have already caused her to lose one of her ovaries. It's a matter of survival for her and millions of other women. There is no test for ovarian cancer, and most women who are diagnosed are at a stage that only 5% survive 5 years. I don't know where anyone got the idea that that they or the government was paying for this. Are you the insurance provider for Georgetown University ? If not then just Shut Up. It is none of your business and has nothing to do with you. If you keep your religion out of my government, I'll keep my government out of your religion.
