A step toward Roe

Quiz: Anyone remember the very first thing George W. Bush did when he took office? First correct answer wins the glory of being right. Hell, we'll see if we can come up with a T-shirt or a book...

Hint: it had something to do with reproductive rights.

These people act fast. So it should come as no surprise that just weeks after Alito's confirmation, some serious anti-woman legislation should come down the pike. Jessica Valenti points to some "scary shit," a bill that "would pretty much outlaw all abortions in the state... the most anti-choice law approved by a state in more than ten years."

And, as Jessica points out, it most certainly will be fought, which is, of course, the plan: to bring it to the Supremes.

Then this:


"State Representative Roger Hunt, who sponsored the bill, noted the recent Bush-friendly appointments on the Supreme Court and said, “I'm convinced that the timing is right for this.” What’s truly terrifying is that he couldn’t be more right."
