  1. When Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke dared to testify that birth control is essential to women’s health, Rush Limbaugh called her a slut and demanded sex videos.

    Pro-choice Democratic women in Congress are standing up to Limbaugh and other rightwing extremists, but they are outnumbered. Please stand with EMILY’s List to elect more outstanding women Senators and Representatives.

    Dear Activist,

    Sandra Fluke is the Georgetown Law student who was denied the right to testify in front of the sham, no-women-allowed hearing that Republicans held on access to birth control. When Democrats gave her the chance to testify, she was a very brave, intelligent, and articulate advocate for women.

    Rush Limbaugh, in response, launched a ruthless and completely disgusting attack. He said that she wanted to be “paid to have sex.” Then this: “What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? Makes her a prostitute.” And then he said that he wants her to post videos of her having sex online so that he can watch.

    Where Are The Women

    Attacking women is nothing new for Rush Limbaugh (or Republicans), but this time he has gone too far. Keeping women out of decisions about critical health policy is unacceptable, but assaulting them for standing up for the health care they deserve is truly outrageous. We can’t let the Republican crusade against women’s rights and access to essential health care continue.

    Please support the work of EMILY’s List to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will stand up to rightwing extremists like Rush Limbaugh!

  2. When Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke dared to testify that birth control is essential to women’s health, Rush Limbaugh spent three days calling her a slut and demanding sex videos for his amusement.

    Pro-choice Democratic women in Congress like Gwendolyn Moore and Jackie Speier quickly stood up to Limbaugh and courageously urged his advertisers to cancel their ads. Thousands of progressive activists joined the fight and six key advertisers quickly cancelled, leading Limbaugh to “apologize” for his “insulting word choices.”

    Of course slightly different “word choices” would not have changed a thing. Limbaugh’s intent was clear: to unleash a 3-day torrent of verbal violence against Fluke, both to punish her for daring to speak as a woman, and to terrorize all other women who might join her.

    We just demonstrated the power of electing Democratic women leaders in Congress who have the guts to stand up to Limbaugh. Now let’s stand with EMILY’s List to elect more fearless women Senators and Representatives who will demand an end to Limbaugh’s 20-year career of terror and lies.

    A 7th advertiser pulls out of Limbaugh’s show

    NEW YORK (AP) — A flower company is the 7th advertiser in recent days to say it is pulling ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s radio program.

    ProFlowers says on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh’s program because his comments about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke “went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company.”

    The company had said on Twitter that posts it received about Limbaugh’s remarks affected how it dealt with its advertising partners.

    Limbaugh called the 30-year-old Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute” after she testified in support of national health care policies that would compel employers and other organizations to offer group health insurance that covers birth control for women.

    He apologized to Fluke on Saturday.
