New York -- We ImmorTalists oppose Bush Junior's nomination of Harriet E. Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court, period. Why? Because she is anti-life!
Now that she has been exposed as a Religious Right fanatic and stealth candidate who would support a constitutional amendment to return American women to the era of back alley abortion. But also because she is almost certainly opposed to stem cell research, which holds the promise of breakthrough treatments and cures for cancers, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and spinal paralysis. Just to mention a few killers.
How can anyone who would sign the death sentence for countless millions suffering from cancer, heart disease etc. claim to be "pro-life"? No, she and the Religious Right are virulently, malignantly, and maliciously anti-life. We ImmorTalists are the *real* pro-life movement!
Stealth candidates for the Religious Right. If you think the Supreme Court which stole the election for Bush Junior in a judicial coup d'etat was abhorrent, you haven't seen nothin' yet.
Now the seizure of power by the Religious Right is complete. First the White House. Then Congress. Now the Court. Is the fate of non-Fundamentalist, non-"born again" America, that two-thirds majority, sealed? There is precious little time left. There is hope only if this overwhelming silent majority will stand up and fight the religious extremists and their henchmen and henchwomen on the Court and elsewhere.
