choose your battles

I love choice, but man, this is an unfortunate one.

Women’s Groups Upset Dem Convention Banning Kids From Floor « CBS Charlotte.

Consider the liability issues of having a convention hall full of children under age 6, the insurance required to provide on-site child care for those children–is it that these women’s groups do not want the DNC to be able to be held at all? The Dems aren’t made of money (meaning, they’re not funded by the Koch brothers or Sheldon Adelson)!

I am stunned.

UPDATE: I must add: if the the Dem Convention is “discriminating” against women by not making it easy for mothers of young children to vote as delegates, why not suggest proxy votes for them, or offer some sort of credit toward private child care? Why throw around the word “discrimination?” Sorry. Still so very stunned. Perhaps somebody out there can help me understand this.
