Sandra Fluke Goes On The View To Address Rush Limbaugh “Slut” Comments

Rush Limbaugh “finally” goes too far by launching a personal attack on Sandra Fluke, the only woman to address the health care issue on birth control before Rep Issa’s faux health care commission on birth control in religious organization. Rush Limbaugh is not only misinformed on who uses birth control and why, but on the fact that taxpayer money is being used to fund it. This is an issue regarding private medical insurance carried by religious companies in which women pay into. Sandra Fluke wants to make sure that birth control and hormonal therapy for women are included amongst the prescription drugs that insurance companies carry, and not banned from coverage because of an employer’s religious beliefs. In other words, this should be a private matter between a woman and her doctor, and not a woman and her employer. In the case of the Catholic church, who are ethically conflicted with the use of any birth control, although the majority of their members uses it, President Obama has created an opt-out clause that allows the insurance companies to cover the cost, so that the Catholic church can maintain it’s freedom of religion, as well as its moral stance on the birth control. Basically it’s a case about individual freedom of an employee versus a religious based employer.

In order to silence Fluke, and to marginalize the debate, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” three days in a row. After pressure from advertisers, Limbaugh finally releases a very rare apology. Sandra Fluke discusses Limbaugh’s apology this morning on The View:
