Roe v. Wade, About to Go Out the Door?

A huge furor has erupted among Republicans because the likely new Republican Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, one of the few pro-choice Republicans in the known universe, warned right after the election that El Presidente had best not nominate an anti-choice judges to the Supreme Court. The wingnuts have been calling for his head ever since, or the very least, demanding he be denied the chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee which will hold hearings and vote on any of Bush's court nominees.

The iVoteValues crowd intends nothing short of the outlawing of all abortion. Sen. Specter is now seen to stand in their way. For that, Sen. Specter may be toast as chair of that Senate committee.

Young women in particular might want to pay attention. The agenda of the "values" voters is not just a war on sex but a war on female equality, which ain't, you know, in the Bible.
