Where's the Feminist Outrage?

Here is a blood-chilling piece on the disregard for human rights -- and brutal mistreatment of women -- that's taking place in Chechnya.

So what do the American feminists have to say? Typically, NOW has instead chosen to focus on the really important things . . . like complaining that Plan B's placement behind pharmacy counters may mean that a woman must endure "a moralizing lecture from the cashier or pharmacy clerk." Oh, the horror.

Is NOW crazy? A moralizing lecture from the pharm-tech who hands them their pills? I have to wonder what color the sky is on Planet NOW.

Not that such a lecture by SOMEONE wouldn't be appropriate, though after the fact.

But this poor Chechnyan woman needs to understand that in order to get world opinion on her side requires her to adjust her story, say perhaps, being denied an abortion. Then world opinion would get noisey.
