Pro-Choice. Unless it’s education, food, or belonging to a union.

Oy. “I’m pro-intervention.”

Democrats ban babies from convention

August 27, 2012

The DNC made it clear last week that babies would not be allowed on the convention floor. The party that doesn’t think you need ID to vote says everyone – including nursing babies – must be credentialed to go to the DNC convention.

Gloria Steinhem had some strong words:

“Women are the key to a Democratic victory, and sometimes, children are the key to women. It’s both right and smart for the Democratic Convention to behave as if children exist.”

Several chapters of the National Organization for Women also had pointed comments,: including this one from NOW Hollywood President Lindsey Horvath:

“The DNC requires children and babies to have a credential to enter the convention, and then denies these credential requests from moms. The DNC credentialing process is being used as a tool to prevent mothers from participating at the convention and is nothing short of discriminatory

Pacific Shore NOW President Zoe Nicholson said:

“This is the year for the Democratic leadership to demonstrate comprehensive support of women, ending this outdated practice and to state publicly that it supports true family values.”

Sounds like a war on women – and babies.
