Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student who was initially blocked from testifying on contraception policy by House Republicans, has addressed the Democratic National Convention.
Ms Fluke garnered national attention after radio host Rush Limbaugh described her as a "slut" for her views on contraception.
She told the convention that six months from now Americans would be living in one of two futures: "A country where our president either has our back or turns his back."
