NYC to consider parking privileges for pregnant women

If you’ve ever tried to find parking in New York, you’ll understand how big an advantage this is:

Women having difficult pregnancies would get special parking privileges under a proposal to be introduced this week, according to a New York City Councilman sponsoring the bill.

The bill suggests that pregnant women be allowed to park in no-parking zones and stand in no-standing zones, said Councilman David Greenfield, who plans to introduce the bill at a council meeting on Wednesday. (Source)

Sounds like a great idea, right? Who in their right mind could possibly be opposed? How about the radical feminists, specifically the infamous National Organization for Women.

The New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women said they liked the idea but worried about possible discrimination by employers and others who may be upset over the special privileges.

“If there’s any city in the country where a measure like this is reasonable, it is New York City,” said Sonia Ossorio, executive director of NOW’s New York City chapter. “But pregnancy discrimination is very real, and we always have to be cautious of anything that may fuel the perception that pregnant women and new mothers are less able.”

These feminists are such a nuisance. Always worried about the spin and never about the truth. Of course pregnant women are less able in some ways. They can’t undertake rough or strenuous physical activity. They can’t take most medications. They experience nausea, vomiting and other pains. They can’t smoke. They can’t drink alcohol. They should avoid saunas and hot tubs.

The solution to this discrimination is not to pretend that pregnant women are just as able as when they’re not pregnant. Don’t be ridiculous. The solution is to make employers understand that pregnant women can still do their job despite their physical challenges.

Providing a free parking spot in areas where other cars are forbidden to park is a great idea.

  1. The irony is that feminism is supposed to be only “man-hating” and anti-women hating. By opposing this they are hating themselves which is contrary to feminism’s women love, man hating manifesto. Not to mention that they are denying a priviledge period to women. I thought feminism was all about giving women everything under the sun in society?

  2. I appreciate “expectant mothers'” parking spots at retail stores– they are completely voluntary. But I’m not really keen on this statist intervention. I can just see the potential for abuse– women stating they’re pregnant when they’re not. I think it just opens a big can of worms.

    I agree though that pregnant women are less able. I wish more people would realize that!

  3. We have a crisis here in Canada with many of our people are clueless please stop Bill C-389 in the Senate before it becomes Canadian Law. Burnaby NDP, MP Bill Siksay’s Bill C-389, the Transgendered Bathroom Bill Has passed Parliament and is now before the Senate. The Senators could refuse to pass this Bill into Canadian Law. Please tell them not to pass this bad Legislation. If passed this Bill will add Gender Identity and Gender Expression to The Canadian Human Rights Act. This would allow men to gain legal access by right to use woman’s bathrooms, thereby providing the legitimized access that sexual predators desire. This becoming Law in Canada puts Canadian Women and Children at great risk. Right now we must inform the clueless among us to get in touch of their Senators to prevent this bad legislation from becoming Canadian Law. Anything else is secondary right now. If they really belong to the faith they must protect Canadian Women and Children in Canadian Bathrooms ,and everywhere else.
