NOW hates women who fail to have abortions

On March 25, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

Over at Flash Report they’ve followed the story of Assemblyman Chuck DeVore‘s (Republican of Orange County) Assembly Bill 1940, which would allow pregnant women to get temporary placards to park their cars in handicapped parking spaces. The Assemblyman has gotten many reports of pregnant women who have trouble in large, full parking lots, particularly in the summer, when they have a long way to walk.

It seems like a simple, common-sense thing we can do to help expectant mothers, right? Think again. Democrats defeated the bill in committee, with a member who voted to defeat the bill, Assemblywoman Betty Karnette (Democrat of Long Beach) saying that instead of this, pregnant women “need a man around the house.”

Apparently Karnette, NOW, and the rest of the radical left think that pregnant women need to live their lives as helpless shut-ins, living at the whims of the men in their lives, even if it means staying home all day because the men have to go out and earn a living.

It baffles me how anyone can claim that positions like these are pro-women. How far have we sunk, that an organization gains credibility as ‘pro-woman’ by favoring unrestricted abortion on demand, but can then actively seek to hinder pregnant women like this?

I guess NOW just hates women who don’t kill their young.
