— -- Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown Law School student who was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show, has endorsed President Barack Obama.

"Obama is committed to rebuilding our economy upon the values of fairness and opportunity and the belief that all Americans, both men and women, must have the rights they deserve," she wrote in an op-ed posted on CNN's website.

Fluke goes on to tout Obama's policies and cut down the positions of his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney. She also compares their responses to Limbaugh's comment about her after she testified before Congress against a bill that would have allowed employers not to provide contraception coverage for religious reasons. Obama denounced Limbaugh's comment and called Fluke to offer his support. Romney said, "Those aren't the words I would have chosen," a response Fluke denounced as Romney not being able "to stand up to extremists in his own party."
