On Tuesday, Georgetown law student and “reproductive rights activist” Sandra Fluke testified before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee to explain the obstacles female students face in acquiring birth control.

CNS News’ Craig Bannister reported that Fluke told the committee that it costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over a three-year stint in law school without insurance, and argued that there should be public assistance given to overcome that obstacle.

But according to Rush Limbaugh, if Fluke were given assistance from the government to have sex, she would in effect be getting paid to have sex.

“What does it say about the college co-ed [Sandra] Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says she must be paid to have sex?” Limbaugh said. “What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps — the johns. No, that’s right — pimp is not the right word.”

Limbaugh did backtrack somewhat after that proclamation.

“OK, so she’s not a slut,” Limbaugh said. “She’s round-heeled. I take it back.”
