Georgetown Student Called a “Slut” by Rush Limbaugh (Vid)

 rush calls student slut

The Georgetown law student called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh following her Congressional testimony on access to birth control hit back at the conservative radio host on Friday.

Sandra Fluke said she was furious over Limbaugh’s disparaging comments and that his language was an attack on all women.

Fluke told NBC’s “Today” that her initial reaction was “to be stunned but then to quickly feel outraged and very upset” that on the first day of women’s history month the host would make the remarks in attempt to silence her.

The composed but discouraged third-year law student added that this type of language was still “evidently still acceptable that’s just very problematic.”

 Back story

Fluke was initially barred from testifying on an all-male panel on women’s access to contraception after being deemed “unqualified” by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif).

During Flukes Testimony

She said birth control would cost her up to $3,000 a year.

But during an unofficial hearing in front of Democrats on Feb. 23, she described her experience of being a student at a religiously-affiliated school whose insurance coverage did not provide contraception coverage. She said birth control would cost her up to $3,000 a year.

Limbaugh’s response

Limbaugh lashed out at Fluke on his radio show on Wednesday.

“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?” he asked his listeners.

“It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute,”

Limbaugh continued. “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.”

When asked to apologize for his remarks

He suggested women who use insurance-covered birth control should post their sex tapes online.

When livid Democrats asked Limbaugh to apologize, he double-downed and went even further on Thursday, suggesting women who use insurance-covered birth control should post their sex tapes online.

Limbaugh’s went on to say

“So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

Fluke told “Today” it wasn’t just Limbaugh, but many conservative commentators who made similar comments.

In a statement on Thursday, the student said she would not stop advocating for government access to contraception.

Fluke’s response to his comments

“The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women’s health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced,” she said.

Limbaugh’s fiery rhetoric on Thursday came the same day the Senate voted to shoot down a GOP-led effort to allow employers and health insurance companies deny coverage for contraception on religious and moral objections.

Obama reached out to Ms. Fluke

Obama reportedly Fluke for supporting his administration’s policy of requiring health insurance coverage of contraceptives for women.

According to White House spokesman Jay Carney, the president called Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke on Friday and expressed his disappointment that she was the target of Limbaugh’s personal attacks. Obama reportedly thanked Fluke for supporting his administration’s policy of requiring health insurance coverage of contraceptives for women. (the guardian)
