NOW and NARAL — so YESTERDAY

From the WSJ

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that political donations to the National Organization of (Some) Women declined from $327,000 in 1992 to $44,000 in 2004.

No, that’s not a typo: $44,000.

NARAL’s long-time president, Kate Michelman, says, “I do worry about our strength as a movement.” She has been replaced as NARAL president by Nancy Keenan, who is focusing efforts on “a state-based recruitment drive.”

They are gearing up to lose Roe v. Wade and continue their fight at the state level.

They will lose there, too.

    Do I feel these groups will fade into complete irrelevancy? No. But the fact that their influence with the American people and DC politicians is lessening should be an encouraging sign that our cultural compass, which has slowly been turning southwa…

    NOW becomes HISTORY

    I wrote a post last year where I wondered if the NAACP was going the same way and for the same reasons. NOW was extremely hypocritical over the Clinton scandal and the O. J. trial, but I don’t think that was the proximate cause of their decline.
