Let the shrieeeeeeekfest begin.
Yeah yeah yeah.
Today America celebrates 39 years of the right to reproductive choice, a hard-fought battle that continues to this very day in spite of choice being the law of the land. But in a press release today Pres. Obama vowed to protect abortion rights:
As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right.
Could anything illustrate the difference between the 2012 Presidential candidates — whichever GOP candidate is eventually chosen — as starkly as this issue?
And one other point of interest, if you please: why is it that the teabaggers, who are so insistent that government stay out of everything, are cool with the idea of the state policing American wombs? I’ve never quite been able to square that one: I suspect it may not be square-able. Or even square-worthy.
