Rush Limbaugh responded to a caller who brought up abortion during a conversation about gun control by saying, "You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun." during his show on Wednesday.
Rush Limbaugh is known for his inflammatory and ultra-conservative comments. Last year, Limbaugh entered the birth control debate with his vitriolic remarks against then-Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. Limbaugh remarked on his radio show, "What does it say about the college [sic] co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex." The national criticism of Limbaugh's remarks forced over 150 businesses to pull advertisements from The Rush Limbaugh show.
