Violence Against Women Starts in South Dakota

“…Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the rest of the leading repro choice organizations have sent out messages indicating that they’ll be there to fight this legislation as it heads to a Supreme Court show down. While I am glad they’ll be there for that, I am distressed at the implications of their messaging. It’s the equivalent of seeing someone about to be raped and doing nothing to try to stop it, and then handing the victim the hotline phone number after it’s over. .” - Irene Weiser, executive director of Stop Family Violence

The above is part of an email I received from Irene, who runs a very small outfit doing a very big job. Obviously, she's talking about the South Dakota abortion bill. I’ve done a post on it supporting Irene's run at the South Dakota legislature.

I hope you stop by and if you can, give Irene a mention on your blog.
