“So Miss 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. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”Limbaugh is apparently unaware that birth control pills, which are prescription only, cost between $80 and $100 per month. They are also used for women who have excessive cramping, bleeding or ovarian cysts. This was one of the points made by the law student. Limbaugh's remarks are obviously both uninformed and misogynistic. House Speaker John Boehner has also called them "inappropriate."
“Three thousand dollars for birth control in three years? … They’re admitting before congressional committee that they’re having so much sex they can’t afford the birth control pills!”
“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? 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. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”
He has refused to apologize.
Some advertisers have begun pulling their ads, according to The Moderate Voice. Reddit has a list of his remaining sponsors.
