Carol Platt Liebau: Access to the HOV Lanes

Access to the HOV Lanes

According to the AP and AOL, a pregnant woman in Phoenix is challenging high occupancy vehicle (HOV) restrictions that exclude her from use of the highway.

Here's the perfect solution: Pregnant pro-lifers get to use the HOV lanes -- after all, they believe there are two human beings in the car. Pregnant pro-choicers don't -- so they're out of luck (and sitting in traffic).

No doubt the principle of 2 people being present will be missed by those who rightly point out that this is just an underhanded way to avoid a ticket. We don't need selfish technical loophole loving examples like this.

Fine. But how about a car operated by a drug-using pro-choicer; shouldn't this also qualify as a "high-occupancy vehicle."

Definite deiscrimination going on here.

It's stupid stories about stupid women like this that give women a bad rap.

This woman is a spoiled brat. She's a moron. She shouldn't be able to drive let alone "breed."

We have troops dying over in Iraq for her to have cheap gas. Now she wants the whole road, too.
