I totally agree with you. I just don't see it being overturned. OK, there may be parts of it, like the late-term abortion, being made illegal (I can't say I disagree with that - if you're in the 3rd trimester before you make up your mind, adoption is a better option than abortion!), but overall the alternatives are too horrific. Even if 90% of it is scare tactics, the possibility of back-alley abortions or worse the clothes hanger do-it-yourself abortion, is not acceptable. Add to that molestation and rape cases and they just can't overturn it without the real mainstream of Americans being in a REAL outcry!

It's become a talking point issue for both sides of the political aisle, meant to appeal to the extremes of both sides (totally for or against), but it's become nothing more than a talking point.

Charlie Rose had an interessting panel on his show last night, one Law prof. was saying if they overturn Roe it would ruin the republican party, it won't happen. He put it well that if women feel their rights are getting hurt, they will run back to the Dems, there was a time when it was like 60/40 Dem to repub. women, now it's close. It would swing back. So it ain't going to happen.

This Roberts guy strikes me as a decent fellow. Not a smug angry right winger like Rove or Scalia. I know this is going to sound out of left field but I am glad he is somewhat handsome, I am tired of these angry, bald right wingers who probably hate the world cause they didn't get a date for the prom, I know that is part of the hated of Clinton, sorry but it's true. People are kids at heart.

Like I said, I would worry more about national debt, and world relations if I were you.

My biggest concern is his lack of experience as a judge, and secondly that he tends to side with big business against the common person and the environment. I don't doubt that he is a decent person, but is he capable of establishing law within the supreme court over the next 30 years?

He's being hired for one of the most important jobs in the nation and his resume doesn't seem to support the position. If you were running a business, would you hire someone who is capable of doing the job or someone that is just a nice guy?

I mean I understand what you are saying, but let's face it, we could do worse. We have done worse. He said he hates bullies, I mean he said that-maybe it's true. Plus many conservatives mellow out as they age, OConnor was never expected to be as moderate as she was.
