NOW wants Rush canceledPublished 10:27pm Thursday, March 8, 2012
ANN ARBOR — The National Organization for Women has stepped into the Rush Limbaugh controversy, calling on Clear Channel to “pull the plug on Limbaugh’s microphone.”
NOW president Terry O’Neil said Limbaugh was trying to shame a young woman from coming forward and speaking her mind, and that calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute” on the air is unacceptable. Ruthie Fuller, a member of Michigan NOW, says Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke did nothing wrong when she testified on behalf of insurance-provided birth control.
Fuller says singling her out by the talk-radio host felt like an attack on all women.
