parmesan politics

The Republican party is pushing the talking point that the (SC)Alito hearings are being driven by a "partisan division" with the Democrats being "unfair" to poor little truth-challenged Judge Alito because he has said that Roe v. Wade was "incorrectly" decided.

They are correct, just not in the way they presume themselves to be.

The partisanship reflects two different points of view. One group feels that the government should be entitled to a mulligan on already-decided laws on abortion rights and that the only rights that American citizens have are the ones that the people in power at the moment decide to permit them to have.

The other group feels that the Supreme Court has ALREADY answered the question of abortion and reproductive rights and that our civil liberties come from the Constitution and are based on our inherent and intrinsic rights as human beings to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Yeah, that's a hard call. Govermentin' sure is hard work.
