Mamas on Bedrest: Divide and Conquer? Let’s Hope Not!

February 1st, 2012

Bedrest Coach Darline Turner-Lee weighs in on the decision by the Susan G. Komen Foundation to withdraw funding from Planned Parenthood for it’s breast cancer screening programs. Turner-Lee sees this latest “attack on women’s reproductive rights” as more than just about Planned Parenthood. She sees it as a way to “put women in their place”, back at home, subservient to men. Many may disagree but after listening to the most recent oppositions to legislation and regulation in women’s health care, one must start to wonder. In the end, we all must consider what is at stake. It is Turner-Lee’s hope that women not polarize because polarization ultimately leads to “divide and conquer”. If that happens, all women lose.
