just a coincidence?

Today is the 33rd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.

It is also the 500th anniversary of the affiliation between the Vatican and the Swiss Guard.

Just a coincidence? OK, yeah, it likely is. But, as part of “Blogging for Choice,” today’s coordinated action to help celebrate the Roe decision and raise awareness about current threats to abortion rights, I write about some possible inferences this coincidence sparks. Please take the time to read my post.

And please join me in working to protect a right we hold dear by keeping Judge Samuel Alito off of the Supreme Court:

Call your Senators—both of them—and tell them that you not only oppose the confirmation of Judge Alito, you fully support a filibuster to make sure he never takes a seat on the High Court. You can phone the US Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121—a switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.

Sign some petitions. Planned Parenthood has one here. Campus Progress has one here. (You can sign both.)

Stay active. Planned Parenthood has other things you can do to help protect choice here.

Thank you.
