Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh burst into a hostile rant Wednesday, accusing Democrats of turning women into “nothing but abortion machines.”
Limbaugh -- the man who once suggested deterring abortion by requiring that it be carried out with a gun -- was responding to a caller’s advice on combating “liberal propaganda” that paints Republicans as anti-women.
“Look at what they [Democrats] are doing to women with their policies: They’re demeaning them, they’re turning them into nothing but abortion machines,” Limbaugh said. “There's so much that we could be doing to just fight back, but the Republican Party, even if they had all the money in the world right now, doesn’t seem inclined to do any of this.”
Needless to say, this isn't Limbaugh's first slam of Democrats' stance on women's rights. In 2012, he called Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” who wants “taxpayers to pay her to have sex” after she spoke out in defense of the Obama administration's rule requiring health insurance coverage of birth control.
