  •  Agree to some extent.... (none)
    But some states, Texas among them, have passed state constitutional amendments banning abortion for just such a circumstance.  The fight wouldn't be able to be fought, because conservative state legislatures have the bans already in place and ready to go.

    •  Fuck 'em..... (4.00)
      .... I'm all about moral capitalism. On the contrary, I believe you'd be surprised by what Texans really believe if this issue is brought to light. Public discourse is a wonderful anti-septic.

      On moral capitalism...... Kansas and Ohio should ban evolution. Alabama and Missippi should ban abortion. All these 'moral' judgements carry harsh economic consequences. Industries that need young, smart professionals won't be able to attract any in these states. Universities will have a tough time recruiting top faculty. New economy jobs that are vital to balance the effect of outsourcing will be lost. These states will see the economic depression they deserve. They can choose to see the light. Or I say - Fuck'em.

      I'm from Ohio and it pains me to see the creationsim debate there. I'm a Clevelander completely ashamed of the rest my home state. We need a wake up call, not a preservation to the staus quo!
