It was those “Palin/anti-choice/PUMAs who hijacked NOW presidential elections last June, or so the blogosphere would have us believe.
. But it does mean that the Palin supporters are still angry that NOW and Kim Gandy did so much to elect Barack Obama. But, why would Republican Palin supporters care about NOW? Unless, of course, they’re really just PUMAS
Wow! If we buy that, NOW is now anti-choice then, right? Since PUMA is for Palin and Palin is anti-choice, they could only have elected an anti-choice President for NOW.
And this would be very easy to come to light after Obama’s bestest speech evah in which he declared
And one more misunderstanding I want to clear up – under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place.”
All the Palin/PUMA stooge had to do was to applaud Obama on this.
Or, if she wanted to blend in, just follow NARAL, Planned Parenthood, MS in their total silence on this.
(Ms banner as of today)
But somehow, this representative of status quo (because she was old and white instead of young and black) did the unexpected: stood up for women’s rights to chose
NOW categorically rejects President Obama’s promise to retain current “conscience refusal” laws, as stated last night. So-called conscience exemptions or refusals that allow health care providers — physicians, nurses, clinics, pharmacies hospitals and even profit-driven insurance companies — to refuse to provide any service that they claim offends their personal beliefs are untenable. Every woman in this country has a fundamental human right to the full range of reproductive health services, including a constitutional right to choose abortion.
Not only that, but they endorsed the unpleasant-we-don’t-talk about-it single payer plan.
Damn those white old women, acting up again!
I missed that takeover election, only read about it. But yesterday, after reading this account
I had joined NOW.
