  • Rush: If Women Want Birth Control They Should Make Pornography
  • Boycott Limbaugh's Advertisers

Yesterday (March 1), 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. <http://dccc.org/pages/denounce-rush-mj/>

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.

Add your name right now.

 

Thanks for standing strong,

  • "I'll Buy Georgetown Women 'As Much Aspirin To Put Between Their Knees As They Want."
  • Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh drew sharp criticism from Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) and others on Wednesday (Feb 29) when he called Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student, a "slut" and a "prostitute" for publicly advocating that employers cover contraception in their health plans. But instead of apologizing for his offensive comments on his show Thursday (Mar 1), he geared up for round two.
