Yesterday was Blog for Choice day, in honor of the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Here’s my belated answer. The question was, What is your top pro-choice hope for President Obama and/or the new Congress?:
Well, this is probably too much — but how about getting someone who is pro-choice to head HHS? Seriously, I don’t have much faith that Tom Daschle will be much of an improvement over his predecessor. I’m even more disappointed about the new chair of the DNC. Also, how about picking someone for Attorney General who has come out firmly in favor of reproductive rights? There was much talk during the campaign that President Obama would save Roe — but these choices for key posts are not encouraging.
