"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] 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." -- Rush Limbaugh
Rush Limbaugh is reading this e-mail.
Yesterday, while Rush was launching his latest vile attack on women who dare to speak up for our reproductive rights, he mentioned my e-mail to you on Wednesday night. I’ll spare you the details on his latest misogynistic rant, but it’s clear that he thinks he can shame us into silence.
Shockingly, the only ones silent about Rush’s hateful tirade are Congressional Republicans like GOP Leader Eric Cantor. Let’s call them out:
Help us reach 250,000 signatures today on our petition demanding Eric Cantor and House Republicans denounce Rush’s heinous attacks on women >>
Republicans in Congress thought they could silence us by refusing to let Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testify on their all-male panel on birth control coverage. They were wrong.
Your grassroots response is already making headlines from ABC News to the Huffington Post. As Sandra put it yesterday:
"The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women's health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced."
Don’t let Republicans in Congress get away with a "no comment" on Rush’s outrageous smears. Either they’re okay with his vile attacks on women or they’re not.
