Where Is NOW's RESOLVE?
Thirty years on, you are probably aware of Roe V Wade and the ripple effect it has had on society.
Here in Nashville you probably heard the mass squee from the Roe Fangirls when Sandra Day O'Connor broke up the Supremes. At last, and just in time for the National Conference! It was as if Davy Jones was playing the prom.
The agenda focus was back on Choice, and protecting women's right to choose. Why does NOW keep fighting a battle it's already won, when there are other hills left to climb?
Egalia writes of the rally and says to me in her comments
No one is threatening to pass a law to forbid you from having as many children as you like. You, however, appear to support passing laws that will forbid other women from making their own decisions.
Get real. That is NOT feminism.
No, no one is passing a law to forbid me from having as many children as I like. HOWEVER, as a woman with fertility issues, I'd like to know why NOW isn't equally vocal about the push to have insurance companies cover fertility treatments.
Apparently the right to pursue pregnancy as an ideal is not as kosher with NOW as the right to end it.
