good news for Choice

today Senator Salazar issued a press release pledging to vote against the Alito nomination. there is no hope of swaying Allard but Senator Salazar's commitment is good news indeed.

in addition, the Supreme Court has unanimously supported the right to 'medically necessary' abortions. unfortunately, the more hairy issue still looms on the horizon and will not come to court until after O'Connor's retirement. as Justice O'Connor has been very important in decisions on Choice, this makes the potential confirmation fo Alito terrifying indeed.

if you have not done so already, please call your senators and urge them to oppose Alito's confirmation!
