Why are Sanders AND ELLISON speaking at a rally for a gestational slavery advocate???? [View all]

Inexcusable for Sen Sanders to endorse gestational slavery advocate Heath Mello, but then again, Sen Sanders is already known for deprioritizing women's rights.

But DNC Deputy Chair Ellison? REALLY? What is going on here? When did our hard-won rights become a bargaining chip for the Democratic Party? It's sadly becoming more and more apparent to me that the #1 problem with Sec'y Clinton's candidacy was that SHE IS A WOMAN. And I now believe that I will not see in my lifetime a woman in the White House who is an uncompromising advocate and champion of women's rights.

"The basic freedom of the world is woman's freedom. A free race cannot be born of slave mothers. A woman enchained cannot choose but give a measure of bondage to her sons and daughters. No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother." - Margaret Sanger, 1919
