The White House says President Barack Obama has called a Georgetown law student whose stand on contraception coverage prompted Rush Limbaugh to deride her as a "slut" on his radio talk show.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says Obama called Sandra Fluke Friday and expressed disappointment that she was the subject of personal attacks.
Fluke testified before a House committee last week on the administration's policy requiring religion-affiliated institutions to give employees access to health insurance that covers birth control. She attracted attention because the week before, the Republican-controlled committee had rejected a request that Fluke testify.
Limbaugh said Fluke's insistence on wanting contraception made her a "slut" and a "prostitute."
Carney says Obama believes Limbaugh's comments were "unfortunate attacks." Carney calls the comments "reprehensible."
