Post "Roe vs. Wade": Some Worthy Advice from

I only have enough time to post and run due to work..but here's a link to an interesting article that I discovered at Joshua Frank's blog that dissects the failures of liberals to hold the line for reproductive rights and sexual liberation through shortsighted defense of abortion; and it actually goes pretty far in defending sexual liberty, too:

While you're there, do feel free to order Joshua Frank's book Left Out: How Liberals Helped Reelect George W. Bush. It will definity change your view of the political system if you happen to be a lesser-evil Democrat.

Peaceout.... :-)

'Sides, I did a post that contains a short story I want you to see. The post is called I Feel Excited (
