It is unbelievable to this woman (I am not Republican nor Democrat) that National Organization of Women would not support President George W. Bush. His administration has hired more women and minorities to powerful cabinet posts than any other administration, including Clinton's. (Gen. Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice have openly stated their support for women's abortion rights — truly amazing that Bush would hire those pro-abortion!)
It is because NOW is not an organization that supports women in politics?
Is it because NOW does not support women who have been sexually harassed by powerful politicians?
Is it because NOW does not support women who suffer inequitities in the workplace?
Is it because NOW does not support women who are anti-abortion?
Is it because NOW is really not interested in supporting women?
Everyone is wondering, "If they do not support women, how can they call themselves an organization for women?"
NOW, and rightly so, is taking a media bashing for its lack of support for all women. It appears that Ms. Ireland and her comrades are only interested in one issue — abortion. Clearly, President Bush does not wish to make Roe v. Wade an issue for his administration, and that attorney general choice, John Ashcroft, admits Roe v. Wade is settled law and he will uphold it. It does not seem that this law will get challenged anytime soon despite their feelings on the issue.
