Quite a change from the 71 - 23 against overturning Roe in the NBC/WSJ poll last July. But then, my Brother Knights did not have the question asked that way. Only 16% in that poll wanted to have abortion made illegal. Supporting any restriction at all was viewed as the equivalent of wanting Roe overturned, even though a strong majority of both parties supported abortion. There is an advantage to actually reading beyond headlines.

Justice Ginsberg may be more prescient than people give her credit for.

One wonders if Red reads or understands his links, or would rather just try to mislead on a very nuanced and complex subject.


The KOC/Marist poll found that even though 55 percent of Americans identify as "pro-choice," strong majorities of Americans in each party would restrict abortion to the first three months of pregnancy, or to cases of rape and incest or to save the life of the mother.

A full 60 percent of Democrats, 92 percent of Republicans, and 72 percent of independents support this kind of abortion restriction.

Marist College has become a better poll since they moved away from their former land-line only system.   This poll does usefully show how being pro-choice doesn't necessarily mean being in unqualified support of late-term abortion.   That's why push-polls can garner such divergent results.  You have to ask specific questions to get at people's real thinking.

   I meet a lot of pro-choice people who have qualms of conscience about the procedure after the embryo stage is passed and the fetus is closer to viability.  I don't judge - many have strong metaphysical beliefs about the state of consciousness of a later-term fetus.

I just wish that the more restrictive pro-choice position would also encompass improved access to birth control,  sex ed,  and other means to empower and dispel youthful ignorance.   If you REALLY don't like abortion,  then teach young men to respect and support women's choices,  and,  if contraception isn't available in the moment,  then keep it in their pants.   Make that happen and 90% of abortions Just. Don't.  Happen.

Government workers can stay home

Just take those sick and vacation days.
You're okay with restoring them when the shutdown ends?

That Donnie Jr. thinks he is a high ranking administration official is wry.

That the author thinks firing the furloughed employees and not ever paying them is constitutional is disturbing (let alone the underlying wisdom of the action).

But that our president retweeted it is unfortunate, if unsurprising.
It's not Donnie Jr. who is claiming to be a high-ranking administration official.

Sure enough. Edited. Misread the tweet.

heh

Brexit vote result: Theresa May suffers crushing defeat as MPs reject deal by huge margin
Prime minister announces vote of no confidence in her government on Wednesday, to 'confirm' that MPs want her to continue in office

A record margin defeated it.

I don't think she'll survive this vote as PM, at this point.

They dont have the votes to remove May

A hundred Tories defected on her Brexit deal.   What makes you think they won't vote her out?
