This should be an interesting fight over the next few months.
In the meantime, pro-choice feminists are irate. "President Obama promised during his campaign that he would protect a woman's right to choose. Why has he wussed out on that?" asks Joy Behar of Maxine Waters this week.
"The blue dogs have too much power in the House of Representatives and the progressives are losing," says Waters. "Women are going to have to go after some of these people. As for the President, the President wants a bill no matter what."
Then NARAL President Nancy Keenan chimes in: "Let's keep in mind who the real enemy is. The real enemy is these anti-choice politicians who wanted to hijack health-care reform."
Behar then asks the panel -- which also included Huffington post (a left-wing website) blogger Julie Menin (you didn't think the producers would include a conservative did you? This isn't FOX, remember) -- what they think American women should do in response to this travesty.
"They should write Bart Stupak," says Menin angrily. To which Waters chimes is that this is not the thing to do because "you aren't going to change Stupak."
"You need to be calling every senator across this nation and say this is unacceptable. Unacceptable. Unacceptable," laments Keenan.
Unfortunately for these women, none of this is likely to happen. America is a right-of-center nation, and while they don't want abortion to be outlawed (only 21% of Americans do), they also don't believe in throwing it down people's throats by making them pay for it -- particularly if they don't agree with it.
Feminists don't care one iota want you like or want. As Joy Behar's show indicates, they expect every American to see things the way they do -- and if they don't, too bad. You should be forced to do it anyway.
Gotta love those libs.
