Boxer drops abortion vote

Cause for guarded optimism - Boxer Drops Abortion Vote: "Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Thursday that rather than risk defeat, she decided not to seek to repeal a law that made it easier for healthcare organizations to refuse to provide abortions and related services."

I say "guarded optimism" because we talking about only making it easier for those who choose not to cooperate in evil to follow their conscience, not about actually restricting a malign practice. Boxer in effect sought to make it mandatory for hospitals to perform abortions. So much for "choice."

Also check out the last paragraph. Note that, following the script, the pro-abortion forces don't feel they need to worry about being defeated in the legislative process -- they're confident that they "will prevail in courts" where they couldn't in the legislature.

We need sane judges now.
