From Laurie Higgins:
The hubris and dishonesty of “progressives” continue to astound. They proclaim through their sycophantic mouthpieces in the mainstream press that conservatives are waging war on women when in reality, it is ”progressives” who pursue policies that hurt women and their children.
Their newest assault on women is the resurrection of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) that has nothing to do with helping women and everything to do with the unencumbered “right” to kill babies while in utero—including girl babies.
Oh, and let’s not forget who else loves the ERA: those who pretend they are members of the opposite sex and want the entire country to play along.
The ERA never once mentions women and is wholly unnecessary to protect women’s treatment in the work place, which is protected by the Equal Pay Act.
The pernicious goals at the center of the push for the ERA include the following:
1. to win government subsidization of abortion
2. to eliminate all state restrictions on abortions
3. to eliminate recognition of the real differences between men and women in all laws and policies
So, for example, the ERA could jeopardize the tax-exempt status of churches that do not permit women to serve as pastors or priests, and it could be used to compel places of public accommodation to allow men who wish they were women to use women’s facilities.
