Left-wing women’s groups claim to fight for women’s rights. In reality, they only want to push their leftist agendas.
When Christine Blasey Ford came forward with her unsubstantiated claims of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh, women’s groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Women’s March and the American Civil Liberties Union were immediately willing to condemn the then-Supreme Court nominee.
Now that soon-to-be Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden is facing similar accusations, these organizations are nowhere to be found.
The difference? Attacking Biden hurts them politically.
Back when Democrats were accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault, they had very little real evidence.
Most “he said, she said” cases lack incriminating evidence, but this was particularly true in Ford’s case.
According to Rachel Mitchell, the sex crimes prosecutor brought in by the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and Ford back in 2018, Ford’s case was weak even in a “he said, she said” context.
In a memo sent to all Republican senators, Mitchell voiced this very opinion.
“A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that,” she wrote.
“Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them.”
Regardless of how weak the case was, women’s groups nonetheless went on the offensive against Kavanaugh.
The ACLU felt that Kavanaugh was “not entitled to a seat on the Supreme Court,” yet its silence on the allegations against Biden suggests the group has no problem with the Democrat becoming president.

Even ahead of Ford’s testimony, the Women’s March Twitter account seemed to presume that she would be telling the truth.
It seems quite odd that they are not offering Biden’s accuser the same benefit of the doubt.
CALL TO ACTION: Dr. Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify before @senjudiciary on 9/27.
That same day, survivors will gather at their Senators’ offices across the country for national solidarity speakouts.

Planned Parenthood felt much the same way:

So did NARAL Pro-Choice America:

Now that one of their own is under fire, these organizations are nowhere to be found.
“He used to put his hand on my shoulder and run his finger up my neck,” Reade told the paper. “I would just kind of freeze and wait for him to stop doing that.”
This is not to say that Biden is guilty, or that Kavanaugh is innocent.
The point is that each case should be judged on the merits of the evidence.
No one should be treated differently for political reasons.
Unfortunately for many victims of sexual assault, the very champions that claim to protect them don’t necessarily have their best interests at heart.
They are simply using their pain to further a political agenda.
