This will not be an option for everyone, and there is a great risk of this
principle being applied in a way that it selectively disadvantages women
with infant children.

We have to plan for situations changing.  There is a fair risk, for
example, that the U.S. will be in an inappropriate destination for our
meetings after the November elections complete, because it will be very
difficult for Muslim attendees.  Should that occur, I expect we will have
to move the planned meetings in the U.S.

I hope that we can increase the possibility of virtual meetings soon, so
that cancelled meetings can move online, and I believe that working toward
that should be a priority.
