We Proudly Stand With Sandra Fluke

I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh.  But I did hear on the news some of the terrible things he said about this young lady.  I won't reprint them, but they are quoted on the petition below.  Sandra Fluke, is a law student at Georgetown University.  Ms Fluke was denied from testifying about women's birth control at a hearing held by Darrel Issa's committee.  The democrats held a hearing and she was able to testify about how the lack of birth control affects her and her fellow students.  I have the deepest respect for Ms. Fluke's courage, composure and obvious dedication.  Women have the absolute right to birth control.  End of discussion. It is outrageously wrong to slander such a fine young lady, especially a private citizen, like Limbaugh did.  We proudly stand with Ms. Fluke and demand every republican to renounce these remarks.  Sign the petition
 From the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee:

I denounce Rush Limbaugh for his misogynistic attack on Sandra Fluke and all women. The Republican Party should be ashamed of itself.

Denounce Rush's Vile Misogyny


Tell Republican Leaders: Denounce Rush Limbaugh's Anti-women Tirade

***Update 3/02/12***

Limbaugh now has a 3 day history of unwarranted attacks on Ms. Sandra Fluke.  Outrage over his comments has spawned a petition drive to the sponsors of Mr. Limbaugh's show.  As of today 6 sponsors have dropped his show.  Let's get them all to drop this misogynistic bully.  President Obama has personally phoned Sandra Fluke to offer his support and encouragement.  What a great President.

  1. She has the right to birth control. We have the right not to pay for her birth control. Easy, isn't it?
