So I'm a Slut?

As a taxpayer, I would much rather chip in a little toward birth control pills than pay for an unwanted baby. If you can't afford contraception, how are you going to afford an abortion or afford to raise a child? The entire cost of that baby - medical, food, clothing, etc. - is going to fall on the taxpayers.

Rush Limbaugh has said that the only reason for a woman to take birth control is because she's having so much sex that she must be a slut and a prostitute. I will be boycotting every company that sponsors Rush Limbaugh. And, Rush, you need to take the same amount of birth control whether you have sex one or one hundred times. Taking the pill does not reflect poorly on me, or any woman, in any way whatsoever.

Even if you have been a fan of his, surely we can all agree that this crosses the line.

In response to criticism, Limbaugh doubled down. He offered a deal to "feminazis" who support no-cost birth control: "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."

Rush had no right to personally insult Sandra, a law student, and women everywhere. He may be known as extreme, but this goes too far.

I signed a petition with NARAL Pro-Choice America to get Rush dropped from as many local stations as possible, and I hope you sign too.

Thanks for speaking out. Don't let Rush bully women.
