Ever since Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testified before a congressional committee on the importance of birth control, Republican party leader Rush Limbaugh has been making vitriolic verbal attacks against her and against any woman who chooses to use birth control. Rush has labeled women who use birth control 'sluts' and has equated health care providers who cover birth control to pimps. In his, perhaps, most inappropriate statement, Rush has demanded that women who take birth control post sex videos on the internet as payment for making the pill available. Here is just one example of the twisted, bigoted, and vitriolic statements issued by Rush on his radio show:
“What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.” -- Rush Limbaugh
