I was sickened and outraged by NARAL's endorsement of BO. They could not give Hillary who fought for them, the courtesy of waiting three weeks?

I wondered if corporate types have taken over the NARAL Board as this is what they do when they want to neutralize an organization. Get appointed to the board and fire activist staff under various pretensions. Hire their own kind instead. Or it might just be opportunistic positioning.

In any case, NARAL will never see another dime from me. Those who want to help with abortion should donate to the Women's Medical Fund (WMF). Click on "Favorite Places" on the green column to your right. Go to W. This WMF is in Madison but I believe there is a WMF in every region - google it. Or give your money to Emily's List.

Thanks to Lady Boomer NYC for printing this. Lady Boomer who I was pointed to by Men for Hillary published the Emily's List response which speaks for all feminists in this matter as follows:

The following is a statement from EMILY’s List president, Ellen R. Malcolm, on NARAL’s endorsement of BO in the Democratic presidential competition:

“I think it is tremendously disrespectful to Sen. Clinton — who held up the nomination of a FDA commissioner in order to force approval of Plan B and who spoke so eloquently during the Supreme Court nomination about the importance of protecting Roe vs. Wade — to not give her the courtesy to finish the final three weeks of the primary process. It certainly must be disconcerting for elected leaders who stand up for reproductive rights and expect the choice community will stand with them.
Greenconsciousness left a comment on Lady Boomer's blog as follows:
But this is a conspiracy, the Great Left Wing conspiracy as opposed to the Great Right Wing conspiracy.

In the end it is the same corporate money monster behind each door, the same wealthy sons of privilege who are their politicians and the same tactics used to divide and conquer the great unwashed masses, GUWM (their term). BO calls the same, the small town Bitter (STB).

That is why we cannot follow leaders but must maintain our own mass organizations to lobby for our interests which WE must clearly define. To do this we must learn to stand with one another around common issues despite our differences otherwise. The aim of the corporate elite is to make sure that does not happen - hence the cultural divides.

They now OWN the media - GE the builder of nuclear power plants owns MSNBC and NBC. Excelon, the IL Nuclear industry owns Obama. Foreign interests including Saudi Arabia own FOX.

The GLW conspiracy has members on boards and hire the staff of so called Progressive non profits who organize to legitimize illegal immigrant slave labor to bust unions and lower wages.

The wealthy are funding the staff of non profit Left Wing think tanks. The GLW conspiracy calls women racist for opposing the Muslim religion/culture which enslaves women. It is not the religion they say in horror - they call us Islamaphopes, they call us racist.

The GLW conspiracy may well be on the Board of NARAL at this very moment.

Every year they come up with a new tactic to split the Dem's and elect their own kind. This time, regardless of whether BO or McCain gets elected, they will have a president who they can control.

It was critical to eliminate Hillary Clinton who could not be controlled and who was capable of implementing the policy which BO copies but cannot accomplish. Yes BO will build nuclear and call it green and he will privatize social security and call it helping the young.

When will we wake up? I don't know. What will happen then? I am hoping for a third party, the Center Democrats, formed by the Clintons to accomplish working class goals as she articulated in her campaign. If I am wrong and BO really does what Edwards preaches, then we will not need such a party. But I am not hopeful.
