Rush Limbaugh has finally gone too far. It’s time to take action and let him and his advertisers know that we’re not going to take it anymore.
Earlier this week when Rush called birth control advocate and Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” it was a clear attempt to roll back public discourse 50 years and shame Sandra for speaking out–and the 99% of women who will use birth control in their lifetime. This is unacceptable.
Thousands of supporters of women’s healthcare have spoken out in the days since to stand with Sandra and all American women. Email, call, tweet–do whatever you can–to urge advertisers to stand with American women and pull their ads and money from The Rush Limbaugh Show. We can win this.

Correction: Century21, EHarmony, Oreck Vacuums and Domino’s Pizza were originally on this list; they have contacted us to say that they are not current sponsors of The Limbaugh Show.
Disclaimer: This list is a work in progress. Because ads are often sold in blocks, many companies may not know (or can plausibly deny knowing) that they are or have been sponsors. We will continue to update the list as we receive new information.
