Beginning of the End of Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court decided to hear a case on partial birth abortion today.  Given Justice O’Conner’s key vote on the subject, I think it’s fair to assume that this is the beginning of the end of the era of Roe v. Wade.  The test of our generation of young men and women is beginning NOW – will we stand by and have our rights dismantled one-by-one, or will we take a stand? 

Firedoglake takes Planned Parenthood and NARAL to task for not fighting tooth-and-nail for a filibuster on Alito.  Elections do matter, and so do right-wing extremist court appointees supported by DINOs.  I feel like I have to do something, but don’t know exactly what.  For starters, let’s all take Firedoglake’s advice:

Please contact both NARAL and Planned Parenthood and tell them to support Ned Lamont and prove that they understand that people like Joe Lieberman and Lincoln Chafee are pro-choice only when it doesn’t count.

I just e-mailed them – now can you?
