Sandra Fluke, who has lobbied Congress to resist the GOP’s efforts to limit women’s access to contraception, said she felt “outraged” over Rush Limbaugh’s personal attacks against her and called his remarks, “really inappropriate” and “outside the bounds of civil discourse.” Limbaugh had refereed to the Georgetown University law student as a “slut” and a “prostitute” and said he would “happily buy [Sandra Fluke] all the aspirin she wants” to put between her knees in lieu of contraception.
