HOT OFF THE SHOW! Activist Moms on Mother's Day
Our WOMANTalk radio Special for Mother's Day airs Friday - Sunday at Oneplace.com in case you missed it at our regular time on the air. We talked about the gun control efforts of groups such as Million Mom March and other groups, such as...
Anti-war activist moms, Code Pink, which are gathering in Washington DC on Mother's Day for a 24-hour vigil outside the White House. They say they "will be joined by amazing celebrity actresses, singers, writers, and moms, including Cindy Sheehan, Patch Adams, and Susan Sarandon!" and to, "Bring your mother, children, grandmothers, friends, and loved ones."
They are also writing letters to Laura Bush "to appeal to her own mother-heart," and will be publishing it as “Letters to Laura.”
We can understand the pain of losing a son to war, but many of these groups exploit a mother's grief for political gain, and that's never okay.
