Keep the pressure on those corporations that need to feel the heat concerning the outlandish “slut” statement by Rush Limbaugh.  Make sure to let others know that we will not take a back seat to those who wish to undermine women’s health, or allow others to get in the way of making personal decisions about contraceptives.

Seven companies have dropped their advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s syndicated program since the radio host called Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute” for speaking out in support of President Obama’s birth control policy.

Pro Flowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it would no longer advertise on Limbaugh’s popular show. Limbaugh drew an estimated 15 million listeners in 2010, according to Talker magazine.

Limbaugh apologized for remarks made last week in a statement released Saturday, amid intense criticism from Republicans and Democrats. President Obama telephoned Fluke on Friday and offered his support.

The Associated Press says the six other advertisers that have pulled ads from Limbaugh’s show are Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems Inc., Carbonite and Legal Zoom.
