Mother's Day wish: Pass the ERA now!

The proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) states that the rights guaranteed by the Constitution apply equally to all persons regardless of their gender. Suffragist leader Alice Paul introduced the ERA in 1923 as the next step in bringing "equal justice under law" to all citizens.

In 1972, the ERA was finally passed by Congress and sent to the states for ratification. The original seven-year time limit was extended by Congress to June 30, 1982, but at that deadline, the ERA had been ratified by only 35 states, three states short of the 38 required to put it into the Constitution. As it stands today, The Equal Rights Amendment is only 1 state short of the 38 required! Help us make NC that 38th state!

Fish have more rights than women

Ok, that title is a bit of an exaggeration, but I'm sure I can be forgiven to taking this discussion to the next level. Women have tried for decades to pass an Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution, a straight-forward way to legally recognize women as persons before the law. Women have tried for decades to get all levels of government to recognize that women have the right to consult with their doctor and make decisions regarding their own health without governmental interference. It hasn't happened yet.
