Women under siege

What has happened to women’s rights and equality these days?

 

Every day there seems to be a story about the infringement on women’s rights.

 

Several weeks ago Al Franken introduced an amendment to assure the victims of rape (predominately women) are afforded the right to take legal action against their defense contract employers. The Senate Republicans were outraged that these contractors could be held accountable. They were more interested in protecting these corporations instead of protecting women from sexual assault.

 

Then the health care reform raged in recent weeks with the right of women to have insurance coverage for abortions as one of the key obstacles. It was also the final obstacle from Senator Ben Nelson Democrat of Nebraska who had to be assured that the government would not provide funds for abortions.

 

And then to add insult to injury Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo, the general in charge of 22,000 U.S. troops northern Iraq, announced this week that getting pregnant or impregnating a fellow soldier is an offense punishable by court-martial. His reason is that he needs every soldier.

 

Apparently women are still second class citizens to some who are in power.
