This Week in the Voice: March 15, 2012
In this week’s feature, Vanya Mehta delves into the Georgetown chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice’s fight for contraception coverage at a Jesuit university staunchly opposed to any shift in policy:
For years, female student activists speaking up for reproductive justice are asked the same question—what did they expect when enrolling in a Catholic university?
Fluke has a simple response to this question. “We can only answer that we expected women to be treated equally, to not have our school create untenable burdens that impede our academic success. We expected that our schools would live up to the Jesuit creed of ‘cura personalis‘—to care for the whole person—by meeting all of our medical needs.”
In the Leisure section, Jane Conroy praises Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt for their performances in the skillfully-written Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which is playing at the Landmark E Street Cinema.
Page 13 proudly tempts fate, proclaiming that this year, this team, this March Madness will be different.
And finally in Voices, Connor Jones criticizes both Rick Santorum for his over-the-top language on gay marriage and his opposition for countering his rhetoric with cheap Google bombs rather than attempts to change the opinions of those who agree with him.
