The vitriol, screeching and lying about the results of the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case continue unabated from those who want EVERYTHING their way. The National Organization for Women has decided to include in their nonsensical lying attacks a very "mean and nasty" bunch of women, The Little Sisters of the Poor.
Yes, my friends, the Little Sisters of the Poor, that order of nuns founded in the 19th century and dedicated to helping the sick and elderly, an order that asks for nothing in return, including payment for services, has been declared DIRTY by NOW. Encapsulated in their own self-serving and 'meistic' world, the leaders of NOW, in a hair-brained and outlandish decision, created and published a hit list of 100 of their enemies. The "creme de la creme" of the women's movement, an organization claiming membership in the hundreds of thousands, has placed The Little Sisters on their DIRTY 100 list. (Take a look at that list)
What qualifies a person or organization to receive such an "honor"? All you have to do is seek relief from the contraception demands included under the Affordable Care Act aka, Obamacare. If you do it means that you "hate" women. You hate their freedom, their sexuality including their ovaries and uteri. Yup--The Little Sisters of the Poor made the grade. NOW considers them nothing but compassionate lovers of the sick, elderly and infirm who embrace the virtue of personal poverty. That does not prevent the Sisters from being classified "Dirty". Why? Because they are against abortifacient drugs. That's right, this has nothing to do with contraception. Abortifacient drugs destroy a fetus AFTER conception. Therefore, they cause an abortion. Since the Little Sisters of the Poor are pro-life and oppose abortion, NOW says they are "DIRTY". Nothing else matters.
Hobby Lobby still covers the 16 contraception drugs as set forth in Obamacare. They do NOT have to pay for the four abortifacient drugs prescribed. These drugs destroy a fetus after conception. That is NOT contraception. That is abortion. End of story. Promoting the narrative that the SCOTUS has taken away a woman's right to contraception is hogwash. This is a lie being pushed to promote this fake "war on women". If there is a war being waged inside the United States of America it is a war on the millions of unborn who have been vanquished under the ridiculous guise of a made-up, politically expedient freedom to abort which is clouded in a pretend virtue that does not exist. Give me a break.
How utterly preposterous and ridiculous this is. NOW was founded back in 1966. The objective was equality for women. It was a noble motive and women needed an organization so they could join together to gain equality in the work place, equal pay and protection from sexual abuse. There was a double standard in wages, hiring practices, college admissions, and in Social Security payments. All of those goals have been achieved. There are more women in colleges than men, women equal men in the work place, there are countless numbers of women doctors, lawyers, accounting professionals etc. There are even professional women boxers and wrestlers.
Today, NOW, supported by a very friendly administration, panders to an ideology that has negated the purpose of what the National Organization of Women originally stood for. They are only for women who agree with their philosophy. Women who do not are attacked and vilified. NOW has outlived its effectiveness and the purpose for which it was originally founded.
