I hope the issue of the inappropriate press release by NOW hurts the hard fought effort to secure womens rights and equality. I am not convinced NOW officially made the statement about child care for democratic national convention being a valid issue of womens rights during this election.

I'm surprised that WEHO Patch even supported this release for, (as I have been personally labelled by readers) "breeder" women or any women for that matter.
