{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Use mdy dates |date=__DATE__ |$B= }} The Rush Limbaugh–Sandra Fluke controversy ({{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}}, {{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}}) began on February 29, 2012, when American conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh's remarks about contraceptive mandates included statements labeling Georgetown University Law Center student Sandra Fluke as a "slut" and "prostitute". Limbaugh was commenting on Fluke's speech the previous week to House Democrats in support of mandating insurance coverage for contraceptives. Despite disapproval from major political figures, Limbaugh made numerous similar statements over the next two days, which led to the loss of several of his national sponsors and Limbaugh apologizing on his show for some of his comments. Fluke rejected the apology as dubious and inadequate.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref><ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref><ref name="Carbonite message">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref><ref name="NYMag">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref><ref name="HP_twitter">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref>
