Didn’t We Already Make This Decision?

Dan Quayle Robin Williams was on the Tonight show once, and told a great joke about Roe vs. Wade.

It went along these lines: “Dan Quayle is so dense somebody asked him what he thought about Roe vs. Wade and he said ‘I’d rather swim.’”

It was pretty damn funny.

Expect the Liberals to trot abortion out again in an effort to run a fear campaign against Stephen Harper and all Conservatives soon. Expect Randy White to shoot his mouth off again - except this time he’s not running. I’m sure that tape’ll get aired again anyway.

This article on Slate makes a great point which is essentially that law students love this never ending debate. I suspect most Americans don’t even know what Roe vs. Wade is anymore, at least the younger generations. Those who lived through those trying times are probably still aware.

Abortion is not an election issue, and it is not an issue on which judges should be asked questions in their confirmation hearings.

Abortion is not an issue that can even begin to be discussed in a thiry second sound bite, and it’s an insult to women everywhere to try to do so, or suggest that it should be.
