The Lady Speaks

NARAL and Planned Parenthood Endorse Lieberman?!

What in the hell is wrong with these people??

Like others, I begin to suspect an addiction to cocktail weenies among the national organization’s Powers-That-Be that blinds them to reality.

Nothing else could explain the dissonance between their stated goals and the actions of Joe Lieberman.

From FireDogLake, I learned that Ned Lamont wasn’t even included in the process. WTF?

What process could result in something this stupid? National must be smoking something good if they’re incapable of looking at these two particular candidates and seeing which one firmly supports their cause of women’s reproductive freedom, and which one who barely pays lip service to the cause.

I sent NARAL a little note from their feedback page and asked if they plan to endorse Rick Santorum next? At this point they’ve done so much damage to their own organization, a little more isn’t even going to be noticed.

I also told them that I’m hoping their chapters throughout Connecticut break with the nationa organization l and encourage their members to vote for Lamont.

Three cheers for NOW which is supporting the right candidate.

Send NARAL a message here.

Support Ned Lamont.

Support the National Organization of Women.

  1. Strange but true- Planned Parenthood is supporting Lieberman as well!
    After calling their national headquarters I was told it was up to CT- But CT tells me national made the call to endorse loser-Joe- We need mainstream press help to make this a national issue-and to investigate what could be behind this injustice-
    “”Lieberman vs. the Day After Pill”

    Joe Lieberman supports the approach of the Catholic hospitals when it comes to contraceptives for rape victims (as reported in The New Haven Register, by Gregory B. Hladky on 03/13/2006, via KissJoeGoodbye.Com).

    Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for “principled reasons” shouldn’t be forced to do so.

    “In Connecticut, it shouldn’t take more than a short ride to get to another hospital,” he said.

    Well Joe, that’s not very helpful. I mean, I know that you’ll never need emergency contraception at two o’clock in the morning after having been brutally raped. So I guess it’s easy for you to disregard any woman who is unlucky enough to have gone through that trauma.

    But here’s a suggestion: Why don’t you provide maps for the victims, so they can walk out of the Emergency Rooms of the various Catholic hospitals around the state, hail a cab, and take that “short ride” to another hospital?”

    Yupe-they are supporting this man -slippery, slippery slope methinks-
