Blog For Choice Day 2008

Here is a post by Heather at the Care2 Election Blog. Reproductive Rights Check-in: 35 Years after Roe v. Wade
The day is almost over, but I didn’t want to let it go by, without my own Blog for Choice. It’s another year, and another anniversary of the seminal abortion-rights decision Roe v. Wade. This year, the 35th anniversary, is actually a pretty big one, even though we’ve not yet heard much about this issue from the presidential candidates in either party — for the most part, the Democratic candidates all agree with each other as do the Republicans. Plus, it doesn’t appear to be that big of an issue so far in this election cycle. And that certainly makes sense—there are a lot of issues that people perceive to require greater attention (i.e. ending the war, better health care, dealing with the economy, addressing immigration, etc.), plus I have a hunch that because of its divisive nature, folks would rather come together around the issues that we might be able to agree on.
