Ok I’ve been following this some, and I read Fluke’s testimony to see just what she said. She’s at best a slut advocate.
Fluke tries to make the point that birth control is a medically necessary treatment, and shares stories about people who need it for the treatment of ovarian cysts. But the funny thing, a story she tells about a particular woman with such a condition - that woman DOES get birth control paid for by her insurance BECAUSE it is medically necessary.
There’s nothing to advocate for on a medical basis, it’s already covered WHEN IT’S MEDICALLY NECESSARY.
Now there is an AP article that a 7th advertiser has pulled advertising from Rush Limbaugh. The article lists that it is ProFlowers (who actually says they’re suspending advertising, dunno if it means short term or long term or if it’s announced as such either way normally) and lists other advertisers doing so as Sleep Train and Sleep Number, Citrix, Carbonite, Quicken Loans and Legal Zoom.
So I have occasion to consider most of these guys, and unless they resume advertising I’ll be avoiding them. If I get the energy maybe I’ll tell them so.
But I know they also mostly advertise on Hannity, possibly also Levin? Not as sure there… I’m wondering if Hannity and Levin have taken similar or supporting positions and if the same advertisers are doing similar actions on other shows?
