This Has Aged Well – Framing The Words Of Lt. Gov. Dan Forest Within The COVID-19 Outbreak

Remember the HB2 debacle? The one that gave us the “Bathroom Bill” and the lost business in North Carolina and a stain on our reputation as a state?

All for a non-existent problem. But Lt. Gov. Dan Forest championed that bill and its intent as much as anyone. Remember this?

“If our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless.”

No price can be set on a child’s life, especially in a situation that never occurred. But what about a child’s life or the life of a child’s family member in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic? Even when we could expand Medicaid in this state with almost total federal funding that we as taxpayers already have financed?

Nope. Not on Dan Forest’s watch. In that case, each life has a price.

But if you like the way that our President has handled the COVID-19 epidemic, then go ahead and support Dan Forest.

  1. Part of me both chuckles and gets angry when I read some of these gender biased HB2 era comments about “keeping MEN out of women’s restrooms and away from young children” – What about women? Has he never heard of people like Mary Kay Letourneau?
