"Culture of life" vs. Culture of Profit ?
Today, by phone, George W. Bush addressed the anti - Roe v. Wade
protestors gathered at the Washington D.C. mall : in support of the crowd gathered in expectation that Samuel Alito - if nominated - would vote to overturn Roe
Meanwhile, Mr. Bush's administration is proposing EPA rules that would allow testing of pesticides on pregnant women and children. How very curious.

Scalia: Think the dealth penalty wrong? Resign
In particular, he says, any Catholic jurist who agrees with the Vatican's anti-death penalty stance should resign. One to raise an eyebrow over, given that Scalia - a jurist who just happens to be Catholic - has been a consistent foe of Roe v. Wade
and legalized abortion. He says his opposition to Roe
, however, is mainly legal, and adds that his religious views should play no role in his decisions.
