Sandra Fluke, On his Wednesday radio show, inflammatory commentator Rush Limbaugh called a Georgetown University law student a “s**t” and a “prostitute.”
The target of these attacks was Sandra Fluke, who spoke as a witness during a hearing of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on February 23. During the hearing, Fluke testified in favor of insurance coverage for contraceptive healthcare. “When you let university administrators or other employees, rather than women and their doctors, dictate whose medical needs are legitimate and whose aren’t, a woman’s health takes a back seat to a bureaucracy focused on policing her body,” she said.
Limbaugh’s response: “What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a s**t, right? It makes her a prostitute… She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the p**ps.”
This isn’t the first time Limbaugh has lashed out at proponents of contraceptive insurance coverage. On Monday, he blasted NASCAR driver Danica Patrick for voicing her support, adding, “What do you expect from a woman driver?”
Sandra Fluke attracted national attention when she was denied the chance to speak at a House committee hearing on February 16. The hearing, called “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?” was organized by House Republicans to discuss President Barack Obama’s mandate requiring insurance coverage for contraceptive healthcare.
