"Sadly these people see pleasure = selfish = sin."
No. most of them actually don't give a damn whether what you do is a sin or not. Further, why should you give a damn what they think? Look to your own soul -- yours is not my issue. However, what you are doing for your pleasure should be paid for by you. Not me. Am I supposed to pay for your next foray into Disney World? Why? I'm serious. Explain to me why a pleasurable action that is purely voluntary on your part is somehow my responsibility? If you say that this reduces unwanted children, I can always counter that I'd be thrilled to adopt them.
The whole thing is turning into bread and circuses, and that doesn't have a good track record, historically speaking.
As to the 'medically necessary' bit -- the whole thing is just another one of those tortured anecdotes foisted upon a gullible public to scare us into supporting legislation we would never support if we had time to think it all the way through. These things are getting absurd. I suppose she ears her dead sister's false teeth, too?
From my personal experience with that sort of medical plan, you have to prove that you aren't using the 'eeeeeevil' birth control pills in an 'eeeeeevil' way. Not hard to do in that case, she probably had to tell the doc something to the effect that she has hormonal imbalances, a related condition, and give enough information to support that, and sign a paper or two. If her privacy is so important, then find a doctor who will tell you which pils to get, write a prescription for them, and get them at a heavily subsidized cost. Most of these pills are so low-cost that it doesn't pay to fill out the paperwork. The woman's cost her $8 a month. Hardly a deal-killer to pay for out-of-pocket.
It goes without saying that if you go to a Catholic University, that you subscribe enough to their beliefs that you made the decision to spend a hell of a lot of money to attend. Why would, for example, a practising atheist think that the Catholic credo and teachings are so wonderful that they'd choose to pay $500 a credit hour for the inevitable "Catholics are great!" course that such a Uni will slip in? (I'd consider it a monumental waste of time and money, myself) If she wanted the cachet that comes from graduating from a Catholic University, but doesn't want to take the rest of the deal, then she wants to be a fraud. I suppose there is value for a prospective lawyer in impersonating a person who has ethics.
There are PLENTY of non-Catholic Universities out there that would have taken her in as a student without imposing their 'odious' belief system upon her. Of course, with such an alma mater, she couldn't present herself as well to a Catholic as a fellow Catholic.
