Rush Limbaugh Unrepentant for Calling Pro-Contraception Student Sandra Fluke a 'Slut'
Christian Post ^ | 03/02/2012 | By Jonathan Moormann

Posted on 03/02/2012 11:01:30 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has come under fire after calling a female student who testified at a Congressional hearing on contraception coverage a "prostitute" and a "slut" on his show, but the radio host remains unapologetic for his derogatory comments.

Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student at Georgetown University, first came into the national spotlight when Rep. Darrell Issa refused to allow her testimony during a Feb. 16 House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the contraception mandate included in President Obama's controversial Affordable Care Act of 2010.

Issa contended that Fluke's testimony was irrelevant, "as the hearing is not about reproductive rights and contraception but instead about the administration's actions as they relate to freedom of religion and conscience."

Fluke was later allowed to testify at a separate Thursday, Feb. 23 hearing on the mandate, during which she advocated for contraception coverage and related the story of a classmate who lost an ovary due to a disease that could have been prevented by birth control medication.

After Fluke's testimony, Limbaugh lambasted the student on his radio show following the hearing.

"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?" Limbaugh said. "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."

Fluke has since called Limbaugh's comments "inappropriate" and "outside the bounds of civil discourse."

Members of Congress have also taken issue with Limbaugh's depiction of Fluke.

Seventy-five Democratic lawmakers sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner asking him to condemn Limbaugh and his comments.

"Mr. Limbaugh is as free as any American to speak his mind about the political and social issues of our time," wrote Rep. Louise Slaughter. "But using his radio show as a means for blatantly insulting a hard-working American with obscene and indecent language because he disagrees with her personal choices is an abuse of the public airwaves."

Former Republican senatorial candidate and prominent businesswoman Carly Fiorina also commented on the issue, calling Limbaugh's comments "insulting."

Limbaugh, however, decided to double down on his comments on his Thursday show this week.

"Ms. 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. And I'll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch," said Limbaugh.

"I called it what it is," Limbaugh added. "And, bam, boy, you nail these people with the truth! So I'm offering a compromise today. I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want."

One of Limbaugh's sponsors, Sleep Train mattress stores, has decided to no longer advertise with the radio host because of the controversy.

"We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community's feedback," the company tweeted early Friday morning.

He didn’t say she was a slut.

SHE CLAIMED SHE WAS A SLUT.

And - she claimed that since she was a slut, she was entitled to have other people pay for her birth control.

This story really presents the Left for what they are.

Let’s get real, if her name was Kardashian or Snooki and said on TV she “is having so much sex she is going broke”, all of these same people whining about what Rush said would be calling her a slut. This is nothing but political opportunism.

As he admits, Limbaugh isn't always right. forgot his exact number but it's around 99.9%.

We're probably seeing one here ... where he's wrong. In short, I can't believe that he forgets his own love life record.

Fact is...taxpayer funded contraceptions WILL cause slutty behavior to skyrocket.

But if one's contraception comes out of one's own pockets there is less sleeping around.

The dem bitch is right about the cheap slut being a hard-working american. An average of 8-9 guys a day based on her statements of how much BC costs her would indicate that she is one of the hardest working sluts anywhere. Anyone out there who wants to possibly make some money marketing bumper stickers might create a sticker emblazoned with "Georgetown Girls Are Easy".

___________________________________

DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF SLUT:

“an offensive term for a woman thought to be sexually promiscuous.”

Let’s see .. Sandra Fluke wants taxpayers to pay for her contraception pills because she claims that her bills already add up to $3,000 a year.

With a bill like that, how many times does she have sex a day?

Doesn’t she even get tired? When does she find time to study law?

Jeez, what a piece of agitprop. Thing one, the title. Fluke is not "pro-contraception" only. She is pro-free contraception, i.e. we all pay for it instead of her taking responsibility for it.

Thing two, the "hearing" she testified at was not a legitimate meeting of the committee but a Democrat dog and pony show created just for her.

Thing three, Louise Slaughter's transparent advocacy of government control of the media via the "Fairness Doctrine".

Stalin would be proud of the so-called Christian Post.

Exactly!!!

When I was in college, they had free rubbers in a big fishbowl-type thingy located in the nurse’s office. Maybe this bimbo can give up a pack of butts per week or cut out a pack of Red Bull and buy some rubbers. Or you can always do the time tested method of pull and pray.

Sounds like this bim is well on her way to her chosen profession of street walking whore. I’m sure her parent(s) are proud.

Rush meant well but he let them have an opening to attack him and now gets him off message. Romney must be pleased since (reading limited transcripts), Rush was calling Romney a liberal.

WHO IS SANDRA FLUKE?

FROM THE SITE: JAMMIE WEARING FOOLS.

Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women’s Legal Alliance. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.

I called both Boehner's and Cantor's offices yesterday to tell them that is it beyond time to take off the gloves and call the democrats and media what they are - LIARS!

No one is proposing limited a woman's access to birth control, abortions, or sex. To say otherwise is a flat out LIE! For Republicans to bend over and take it time and time again (reminds me of the frat initiation in the movie Animal House) makes me ashamed to be a Republican.

How about Odumbo's latest LIE - "Anybody who tells you that we can just drill our way out of this problem does not know what they’re talking about, or they’re not telling you the truth." It has a double lie – first, anyone who believes that domestic drilling will not reduce our dependence on foreign oil must also believe that cigarette smoking does not cause cancer or eating does not cause obesity (and we know where the libs stand on those issues). Second, he does not even define what problem he is addressing – dependence on foreign oil, or the use of oil in general. Since it’s a blatant LIE to state that domestic oil production will not reduce our dependence on foreign oil, then he must be talking about the use of oil in general. So, where do you stand, Odumbo, on the economic growth of America through the use of fossil fuels?? Seems to me that he is advocating taking us back to the stone age, and he is already pushing us in that direction by decreasing the total amount of electrical generation through his onerous regulations that are causing coal fired power plants to shut down. Let’s see how we get through the summer with a 20% reduction in total electrical output.

I can spot these LIES, you can spot these LIES, then I must assume that Boehner and Cantor and spot these LIES. I can only conclude that the entire Republican leadership is run by girls, and men are not allowed.

Sandra Fluke testified about a friend/acquaintance of hers who lost an ovary due to an untreated ruptured ovarian cyst. She claims that the insurance company that covers PCOS treatment (birth control pills) would not cover the friend’s prescription because they believed the friend who is a lesbian wanted the pills for contraception rather than for PCOS treatment. Thus, the lesbian received no treatment and lost an ovary. The lesbian bemoaned the fact that she might want to have children later in life and that the loss of one ovary would greatly reduce her chances. Statistically, PCOS sufferers have great difficulty making it through one trimester of pregnancy. Odds are already against this lesbian having a baby ever. My problem with this story is that doctors make a diagnosis of PCOS based on hormone counts and known ovarian cysts. An insurance company would know whether or not PCOS had been diagnosed, and I don’t see an insurance company denying a claim like that without expecting a huge lawsuit. I want to know if this lesbian PCOS sufferer sued her insurance company. Maybe Sandra Fluke could be asked about this by some enterprising journalist. If we are going to talk about women’s health issues, let’s talk about women’s health issues. Sandra Fluke is a politician in the making. She needs to back up her sob stories with some facts.
