Mossburg and the 'war on women'

In a recent op-ed, columnist Marta H. Mossburg tried to make a paradox out of liberals labeling the conservative effort to restrict reproductive health care for women as a "war on women" while at the same time condemning stay-at-home mothers ("Biology really is destiny," April 25).

She is referring, of course, to a single comment by Hilary Rosen about Ann Romney, who happens to be extremely wealthy and, consequently, most likely to have had as much paid help raising her children as she wanted.

Ms. Romney's circumstances were obviously different from those of the average working mother, and no one "condemned" her. Yet Ms. Mossburg has done a magical job in turning that single comment into an condemnation of all liberals. She can't be serious.
