Tell Radio Stations to Take Rush Limbaugh Off the Air

I got this message yesterday from Michael Morrill of Keystone Progress. When I signed, I added the comment that slut-shaming is actually unacceptable in any context:

It was bad enough that Republicans in Congress wouldn't let Georgetown student Sandra Fluke speak about contraceptives at an all-male hearing...
But then Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut" and "prostitute" for wanting to get reproductive healthcare for all women.  Here's just a part of what Limbaugh said:
LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college coed 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. 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.
It's time for Limbaugh to be taken off the air.  Click here to send a message to all of the PA radio stations carrying Limbaugh.  You can alsohear the audio of Limbaugh making his disgusting comments on the site.
Pleae take action and send this email widely.
Enough of Limbaugh and the Right's attacks on women!
