NOW Defends Scott Peterson's Right to Choose
(2003-04-21) -- The National Organization for Women has decided to broaden its fundraising base by supporting a man's right to choose in addition to the traditional woman's right to choose.
In this case, the man is Scott Peterson, currently staying in private quarters as a guest of officials in Stanislaus County, CA. A local NOW chapter spokesman issued a formal apology to Mr. Peterson for the "grievous injustice he has suffered at the hands of those who would limit his rights."
The spokesman called on local officials to drop one of the two murder charges against Mr. Peterson on the grounds that the late-term fetus his wife carried was not a person.
"If he had killed his wife then removed a tape worm from her and it died, he would only be charged with one murder," said the NOW spokesman. "That is a precisely accurate analogy using irrefutable logic."
A memo from the NOW legal department also defended Mr. Peterson's alleged decision because of the extraordinary situation.
"Terminating the fetus at that late date was still permissable," according to the memo,"because there was a clear threat to the life and health of the mother."
“Depend on BJ/SF for all the news that matters.”
“Fair, balanced and disgusting.”
