True Madness

From Judith Warner’s excellent op-ed in the New York Times today:

“Stupak-Pitts passed not just because a group of Catholic bishops bore down on Democratic lawmakers. It passed because it could. Maybe because our cultural memory is short; because our fantasyland nostalgia for a world of stay-at-home moms and gray flannel dads is too great, because when push comes to shove, in tough times, there’s still a willingness to throw women under the bus.”

  1. Bottom line: It should not have passed. Women were sold out. And last time I looked Roe vs Wade was still in effect. It passed because no one cared and people did not fight for the healthcare reform that should be a normal part of our daily lives.
