Seeing that South Dakota successfully banned abortion in in 2006, a case that's making it's way though the courts now.
So, let me walk you though this. John McCain is 72. He has a history of skin cancer. He will also be the oldest President ever elected. Let's just say... he gets hit by a bus and dies. Sarah Palin would then be POTUS.
Oh, the average age of a Supreme Court Justice is 68. The oldest member is 88 and the youngest is 53.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
I believe Sarah Palin has said regarding the subject of abortion, that she would not try to change the law. Just thought I would put that out there.
Besides the fact that I really believe that female Democrats are not being held hostage by that old, tired and worn pro-choice argument anymore, at least the PUMA ones on the Hillary Forum I am a member of aren't.
They all realize no one is going to take away their right to choose.
After all, we have had 8 years of Reagan, 4 years of Bush I, 8 years of Bush II, that is Twenty, yes 20 years
of Republican Presidents and, lo and behold ,not one of them tried to overturn Roe V Wade.
Isn't that just the most amazing thing????
That argument is irrelevent IMO.
