I am quoted in The Huffington Post

I am quoted in The Huffington Post, thanks to Barbara Hannah Grufferman.

Should women expect President Obama to push for the ratification and passage of the Equal Rights Amendment?
"Yes! He has not kept up his promise to the biggest group who elected him -- women. He needs to work on passing the ERA ASAP, as well as not concede anymore on important issues such as Medicaid, Social Security, reproductive justice and more, which impact women more than men."
-Jerin Arifa

My entire quote:
Now that he has won, I can be honest about how disappointed I have been with him. The war mongering with the drone attacks aside, he has not kept up his promise to the biggest group who elected him - women. He needs to work on passing the ERA ASAP, as well as not concede anymore on important issues such as Medicaid, Social Security, reproductive justice and more, which impact women more than men. He and so many democrats come from a place of fear, with a relationship similar to that of a victim/abuser with the GOP - making themselves believe that the abuser will be nice if they just give them what they want. As we have witnessed with the Tea Party, they don't care how much we concede. The Dems need to develop courage and do the right thing.

Hey everyone! I came across this filmmaker, Kenneth DelVechio, and think that his new documentary sends the message that we are all looking to send. Here is some information:

THE LIFE ZONE

Controversial filmmaker, bestselling author and former judge, Kenneth DelVecchio’s pro-life thriller, THE LIFE ZONE will be available on December 4, 2012 on VOD (DVD available on December 11, 2012).

THE LIFE ZONE follows three women have been kidnapped from abortion clinics and held for seven months – until they all give birth. Cutting right down the middle of the hotly debated issue, THE LIFE ZONE examines the topic of abortion from both sides but, as The Los Angeles Times reports, The Life Zone is“a psychological thriller bringing an emphatically anti-abortion slant to the hot-button issue.” “The Colbert Report”adds, “Just like all great horror films, Del Vecchio’s movie has a shocking twist.” And Newsweek/The Daily Beast headlined with “The Life Zone has caused an uproar”.

The movie stars Robert Loggia (Academy Award nominee; Scarface, Big), Lindsey Haun (Broken Bridges, True Blood), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid; Rambo), and Blanche Baker (Emmy winner; Sixteen Candles).
