Right-Wing Strikes Back
Now that the right-wing controls the Surpeme Court (with Bush's appointment of Samuel Alito and John Roberts), they are striking back against Roe v. Wade and reproductive rights. South Dacota has passed the most retrictive law against abortion, outlawing all abortion, even in cases of rape or incest, except to save the life of the mother. This law is designed to go to the Surpeme Court and overturn Roe, which there now appears to be enough votes to do.

People for the American Way published a letter from Samuel Alito to James Dobson, leader of Focus on the Family, thanking him and FOTF for supporting his nomination....Alito tried to hide his true beliefs and views during the confirmation hearing but now we see the real Alito--a right-wing religious fanatic who will join with Roberts and the other conservative justices to overturn Roe and continue to erode the separation between church and state..

Welcome to Bush's America!

As an aside, who of the Democrats in TN, would you vote for in the primary election? I cannot see that any are clear winners.
