WASHINGTON (AP) — The Georgetown University law student labeled a “slut” by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh says his apology changes nothing and that Americans have to decide whether to support companies that continue to advertise on his program.

Sandra Fluke told ABC’s “The View” on Monday that she hasn’t heard from Limbaugh since he issued a written apology late Saturday. But she says his comments about her testimony before members of Congress have been so personal, she’d rather not have him call. Fluke testified to Democratic members of Congress in support of a requirement that health care companies provide coverage for contraception.
Seven companies have now pulled advertising from Limbaugh’s three-hour radio show. Fluke says his comments were an “attempt to silence me” and an attack on women’s health.
