To briefly summarize, a Georgetown (Jesuit/Catholic university in Washington, DC whose health insurance policy doesn't cover contraception) law student named Sandra Fluke testified before Congress about the hardships faced by classmates who need hormone therapy for conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome. Rush responded by saying:
"What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps."
