Rush Limbaugh has really got to chill!

The controversial radio talk show host and conservative political commentator took his argument way too far on his radio show when he referred to Georgetown Law student Sarah Fluke as a slut and a prostitute for her stance on women’s access to birth control.

The third year law student spoke out yesterday for the first time since Limbaugh’s Wednesday night commentary. Sarah appeared on NBC’s “Today” where she said she was “stunned” and “outraged” by his comments and deemed them as “an attempt to silence me, to silence all of us from speaking about the healthcare we need.”

According to the Washington Post, the commentary that prompted Limbaugh to disrespect Sarah was said when Sarah testified about Georgetown’s policy on contraception.

Fluke, a third-year law student, testified about Georgetown’s policy on contraception during an unofficial hearing last Thursday that was led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). She argued that birth control should be covered by health insurance at religious institutions.

Pelosi arranged for Fluke to testify after she was excluded from an official congressional hearing on the contraceptive mandate in the nation’s health-care law. Republicans who ran the hearing said Fluke’s name was submitted too late (Democrats disagree). None of the women who testified at the congressional hearing spoke in favor of the mandate.

At Pelosi’s hearing, Fluke said her fellow students at Georgetown, a Jesuit university, pay as much as $1,000 a year for birth control because campus health plans do not include coverage of contraceptives for women.

“What does that make her?” Limbaugh said on his show Wednesday night. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.”

“She wants to be paid to have sex,” Limbaugh continued. “She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.”

On Thursday, Limbaugh expanded on his thoughts but offered no apology.

President Barak Obama even spoke out on Limbaugh’s commentary calling Limbaugh’s remarks ‘reprehensible’ and called Ms Fluke to express his disappointment that she was the subject of ‘inappropriate personal attacks.

Advertisers also began to pull ads from Limbaugh’s radio show following his rant during which he suggested that Sarah post her videos of sex if he is paying for birth control, saying

“‘If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex… we want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

Limbaugh is also famous for taking shots at Jay-Z to which Jay responded to in his track “Off That.”
