The Women’s Movement – Just an Abortion Lobby

2017 April 2
by bc3b

The womaen’s movement has been transformed over the years … from a movement that pushed for women advancing in all phases of life to a movement totally centered around abortion.

Look at the women’s movement today. It is totally silent about Islam and the way it mistreats and brutalizes women. Women pushed for Title IX, which gave women equal access to high school and college athletics. Yet today the women’s movement is neutral on (perhaps even supportative of) confused males who want to compete for positions on women’s athletic teams, even though it means women being cut or, at the minimum, not receiving playing time.

The women’s movement should be celebrating successful women, and it does (providied they are pro-abortion). The women’s movement visciously attacked Sarah Palin, only the second woman to be selected as vice presidential candidate by a major party, in 2008 and Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to head a successful presidential campaign. The women’s movement also shuns Republican office holders like long-time US Representative Marsha Blackburn and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin because they don’t support abortion.

 Cleta Mitchell, an attorney who represents Republican candidates and conservative groups, says the women’s movement has morphed into a giant abortion rights lobby.

Is there a “women’s movement” in 2017? What is it? Who is it?

I became involved with the women’s movement in the early 1970s, when, as a junior at the University of Oklahoma, I was one of five founders of the Oklahoma Women’s Political Caucus. For over a decade, I traveled the state working for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Later, as an Oklahoma state legislator, I was a champion of women’s rights, including supporting abortion rights within the Roe v. Wade framework.

In the 1970s, we fought for legal equality and eradication of the laws, based on English common law, that put women in the same legal category as children and insane persons. We wanted access to the Ivy League schools, the professions, the clubs — everything. Wherever men could go and become successful, we wanted to be there, too.

And we got it all. Big time. The antiquated statutes were repealed. Women got into the professions and the C-suites and the schools and the TV news anchor desks. We got there. We ARE there.

So why, pray tell, were those women and girls wearing those ridiculous hats at the purposeless “women’s marches” in January? Why do they perpetuate the Freudian question, “What do women want?”

The women’s movement has ebbed because it succeeded. Yet the suffragist Susan B. Anthony’s mantra “Failure is impossible” has been so hijacked by post-millennium feminism that declaring victory is unforgivable.

All that a “movement” could responsibly achieve, has been achieved. My 32-year-old daughter doesn’t know the meaning of “girls not allowed.” Now, it is up to individual women to lean in, step up or walk through the doors opened by and for us over the last 40 years.

Our fight was ostensibly about respecting women’s choices, whatever they may be.

But the women’s movement doesn’t live up to that idea. If women choose to be chief executives and officeholders and columnists and doctors and partners in law firms, great! If they choose, however, to be moms and wives and attend Bible study or bake cookies, they are “bitter clingers” and “deplorable.” And if they happen to be conservative professional women, they are invisible.

The ugly truth is that the women’s movement has morphed into a giant abortion-rights lobby, demanding abortion far beyond the Roe v. Wade trimester construct. For someone like me, who has done a lot of soul-searching over the years, ultimately coming to believe that life begins at conception, I’m no longer welcome in the women’s movement. Women who oppose abortion are deemed contrary to the very idea of equality. Being a feminist in 2017 equals zero tolerance for anti-abortion views.

We are told that legal abortions protect women from deadly back-alley abortions. Feminists, then, should be the vanguard of strict licensing and enforcement of regulations governing abortion facilities and practitioners. Instead, they object to regulation on the grounds of restricting “choice.”

Yet, how do feminists reconcile the mission of protecting women from male brutality and predators when a perpetrator is the abortion industry itself? Think Philadelphia abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell, convicted in May 2013 of murdering three infants born alive during attempted abortion procedures, as well as 21 felony counts of illegal late-term abortion, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent law. He had been charged after the deaths of seven newborns whose spinal cords were severed with scissors after being born alive during attempted abortions, and an adult patient who died after an abortion.

    Susan Rice is the ‘unmasker’? — http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-03/report-mike-cernovich-reveals-natl-security-advisor-susan-rice-responsible-unmasking — Admittedly that is pretty high up and she has been dumb enough to fall on the sword for Obo once before.

    drdog, Susan Rice seems to be the logical suspect. And, of course, if this proves to be true she will be protected by her Black-Woman shield.

    But trump & Sessions should go after her with all guns blazing.

    bc3b: “The Women’s Movement – Just an Abortion Lobby

    When asked by a judge (who was about to sentence him to prison): “Why do you rob banks?”
    Willie Sutton is supposed to have replied: “Because, that’s where they keep the money”

    Why did the “Feminist Movement” become “just an Abortion Lobby”? Because THAT is where they keep the money.

    Abortion is BIG business…lives be damned.

    Read this in an article this morning re McConnel invoking the so-called ‘ nuclear option’ to get Gorsich confirmed:

    …it would touch off intense acrimony in Washington

    Wait…WHAT? You mean it would upset the harmonious functioning of government that currently takes place? 🙂

    6,

    Wasn’t an Onion piece was it??? 🙂

    McConnell keeps touting he has the votes. Or does he? If he had the votes it would seem that mentioning the nuke option would be off the table. To reduce the acrimony you see.

    Getting back to the original post….

    The feminist movement such that it is will die for lack of interest. My gut says what will supplant the feminist movement is the partner movement. Go to any of the online women focused websites. Guaranteed that the two top topics are:

    1) My relationship sucks. What can I do about it?
    2) I am not in a relationship and I don’t know why.

    (2) is gong to be the dominant theme going forward at these websites as men decide to say f’it woman are not worth it.

    Drdog, there was serious article written by a college-age gal a little while back, lamenting the fact that men weren’t showing interest in her because she was a raving FEMINIST.

    Duh!

    She then proceeded to label men DARING to not show interest her: “Sexist!” 🙂

    They turned the IRS into a political weapon after the 2010 midterms to stop the teaparty.

    It really doesn’t surprise me that they wouldn’t use the various intelligence agencies in the same manner.

    12 – Nor I, I still think they got something on Roberts for the switch in the final week before releasing the decision, not only does it fit the MO but we know intel agencies were snooping on them from whistleblowers including the latest (Montgomery).
