Phyllis Schlafly defeated the Equal Rights Amendment in 1979 after seven long years of debate over whether American women want the “equality” of abortion-on-demand, men in women’s restrooms, and drafting girls into military combat. Leading an army of housewives with horse sense you can’t find on Capitol Hill, Phyllis saw ERA dead and buried. Some proponents tried to unfairly extend ERA’s shelf life, but that didn’t do them any good. Now, with all the grotesque flair of Frankenstein’s monster, feminists are trying to resurrect the long-dead Equal Rights Amendment. Rather than following the constitutional process of starting with a fresh, clean bill, they decided they would have better luck digging the old one up from the grave.
This Frankenstein-style horror story shows just how desperate the feminists are to force their ideas on the rest of America. We all know taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand wouldn’t get a simple majority in both houses of Congress, much less a two-thirds majority. Of course, we all know they couldn’t round up thirty-eight states to ratify something like that. The same could be said of women in the draft, boys on girls sports teams, or any of the other crazy things ERA would do to our way of life. That’s why the feminists had to try to resurrect the old ERA. They knew the American people don’t really want what they’re selling.
As discouraging as these political shenanigans are, there is a silver lining here. If the American people don’t want ERA, we have everything we need to defeat it. In America, We The People are still in charge if we choose to be. We have to rise up and make our voices heard. Democrats are using support for ERA as the litmus test for a candidate’s feminist bona fides. They say if you are against ERA, you are against women. If we don’t fight back against this false narrative, it will drown us out. Each one of us has an important part to play in ensuring the Frankenstein’s monster of ERA goes back in the ground where it belongs. Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of preserving our American way of life for generations to come.
