Feminist takes on Alito and the moral values at stake

This is a great resource. Thank you for putting this together for all of us!

I wish someone with the time and resources would put up a "Withdraw Alito" site, since the precedent has been set.

Great collection of feminist links. Yeah, this is going to be an ugly battle. The most disturbing thing about all of this, is that it brings to light how tenuous women's rights are--namely our reproductive rights and right to be autonomous, equal citizens under the Law--in this country. I guess some people can't wrap their little heads around the fact that women are people and deserve the right to determine their reproductive destinies, and have equal protection and rights.

not really sure what being

not really sure what being white has to do with it, and being male. "dead white men" it just sounds to me that people are easily accepting of this kind of racism. sometimes i think people dont realize that everyone experiences pain in life. whatever though. the above "dead white men" comment is straight out racism. you dont have a monopoly on pain and suffering.

amanda, i dont think they feel they are taking your rights. rather, that you are taking rights away from the baby and that they are protecting the rights of that baby and that they are protecting the baby from death. i think thats different from what your thinking.
