NEW YORK (AP) — A flower company is the 7th advertiser in recent days to say it is pulling ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program.

ProFlowers says on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program because his comments about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke "went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company."

The company had said on Twitter that posts it received about Limbaugh's remarks affected how it dealt with its advertising partners.

Limbaugh called the 30-year-old Fluke a "slut" and "prostitute" after she testified in support of national health care policies that would compel employers and other organizations to offer group health insurance that covers birth control for women.

He apologized to Fluke on Saturday.
