Donation Time

The Supreme Court upheld the so-called partial birth abortion ban today. SCOTUS Blog has a good recap.

It's hard not to be afraid of a conservative court that not only tells us WHAT we may do with our pregnancies, but HOW doctors may treat them. Particularly scary is the lack of a health exception for the mother, one of the hallmarks of abortion restrictions in USSC jurisprudence.

So much for "Kennedy is the new O'Connor."

I'm making a donation to Planned Parenthood and NARAL today--I hope everyone who is as concerned about their civil rights to do the same.

Bait and Switch

It turns out Siska isn't a Keeshond after all. . .she's a Norwegian Elkhound. Just in case anyone is going moose hunting any time soon.
