Dr. Georgiou may know a lot about medicine, but she is worfully ignorant about the U. S. Constitution. Her statement that ERA is not needed "because women still need equal due process rights; the 14th Amendment takes care of that." She fails to understand that the ERA is needed to guarantee for women the right to equal protection of the law that men have received as a constitutional birthright ever since the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 including references to "male citizens" meant to deliberately exclude women. Without the prohibition against sex discrimination AGAINST WOMEN that would finally include women in full citizenship implied by that 14th Amendment guarantee, none of the specifics of equality cited by Dr. Georgiou, even if nominally addressed by statutes, can be effective. Dr. Georgiou needs to learn the facts and broaden her pespective beyong health issues before she presumes to inform others. --Twiss Butler www.equality4women.org
