Posted on 08/27/2019 6:42:10 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
The National Education Association approved a new "business item" expressing support for abortion access during its annual conference in Houston.
"[T]he NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person's right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people," the resolution states. "The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade."
The NEA is the largest teachers' union in the U.S. with more than 3 million members. It collected nearly $400 million from American educators in 2018, according to federal labor filings. The union is also one of the most politically active in the country, spending $70 million on politics and lobbying in 2017 and 2018. Nearly all of the union's political action committee spending went to Democrats during the midterm cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
The resolution, known as New Business Item 56, takes direct aim at the Trump administration.
"The most misogynistic forces, under Trump, want to abolish the gains of the women's rights movement," the business item later states. "Women's leadership is essential for any successful egalitarian movement and therefore must be protected."
..and every other anti-God position this side of the moon. If you have children still in public schools get em out. Their being taught by 99% leftist baby killers. Its sickening. Wonder how many drag queens have hired as teachers?
Hmmm... given CHILDREN are what drive the need for you to even have a job, endorsing the destruction of them is self destructive...
Just from a pragmatic perspective, this is a stupid stupid stand for the NEA to take.
There’s nothing like killing your customers.
This is like a doctor wanting less patients, so he just kills half of them off.
Makes no sense.
So does the Sierra Club. What does that have to do with the 3 R’s? Or the environment?
I guess that’s one way to reduce student-to-teacher ratios.
Union Members in favor of making their jobs easier. Better headline.
Wouldnt that put teachers out of business??
Their warped methodology for reducing class size & load on teachers /SARC!
I do not believe the USA will survive unless we get our kids back from Leftist ‘indoctrination’ ..... this is what passes for public ‘education’ these days. Home schooling is definitely the way to go .... and why the Left hates it so much.
More from the highly political educational-industrial complex.
ALL funded by your tax dollars and massive government debt, in our printed, manipulated Federal Reserve currency.
Who in their right mind would advocate murdering half of their potential customers?
NEA is one of the world’s most vile organizations
There should be no such entity as a “Teacher’s Union”.
Abort the NEA.
NEA makes collective statement on mental disorder of Teachers .....
Subconsciously hate their students (probably parents too)
Doesn’t seem to have a direct relation to representing teachers.
The union doesn’t seem to be doing a good job for its customers.
The "customers" aren't paying them ... the taxpayers are ... through artificially inflated salaries ... that get kicked back to the Rat party ...
Yep, more godless upside down thinking by teachers union. But what would we expect? This same crew teaches as gospel that we evolved from a mud puddle.
By extending choice demands for youth arguably the NEA also supports pedophilia.
What does this have to do with educationreading, writing, and arithmetic?
