Where IS the National Organization "for" Women?
Last week I asked (rhetorically) this question in a post about human trafficing (aka slavery) in Minnesota. Today I ask that question again, but in all seriousness. Why, you may ask? Two stories came to my attention this week that, if they had happened here in the US, would have had certain groups on the left howling with righteous anger. Their silence angers me more than I can say...
"Tehran, Iran, Jan. 07 – An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging after she weepingly confessed that she had unintentionally killed a man who had tried to rape both her and her niece."
Thus begins the horrific story of Nazanin, a 17 year old who was sentenced to die because she committed the crime of being a woman who refused to submit to rape! Read her story and weep.
Secondly is this story from Front Page Magazine.
"Peter Raddaz let’s begin with you.
A man sees a woman and she is not veiled. He thinks to himself: “Oh, I must rape her now.”
No matter how much I try to figure this out, I can’t. What’s the mindset here?"
Remember a time when NOW and other "womens groups" would say that what a woman was (or was not) wearing is not an invitation to be raped? Why are we not hearing these same voices denouncing this mindset?
We women need to speak up to our government and to those organizations that "claim" to represent us. We need to demand that they get serious about all forms of womens rights, and not just abortion rights. We women are more than just baby making factories waiting for abortion services. We are wives and daughters and mothers and we want to live our lives in freedom and safety. NOW needs to quit representing the abortion industry and start supporting women throughout the world!
