One of my biggest fears of Bush in his second term will be his supreme court appointments. I know that several Objectivists have pointed out Bush's recent statements which seemingly
show him to be tolerant and sympathetic to the separation of church and state. I'm going to post further on this topic later this week, but for now, I'll believe when I see the appointment.
With all the recent talk of "values" in the media, the conservatives are rallying
to push Bush as far to the right as possible. This coupled with the Republican majority in both houses of congress and the fatuous reasoning used to justify Roe v. Wade, makes it quite possible that it would be overturned in the next 4-6 years. While this wouldn't make abortion illegal nationwide, there are several states that have laws on the books which prohibit abortion, but aren't valid right now because
of Roe v. Wade. Overturning Roe v. Wade would be a huge
victory for the conservatives; hopefully we will not see it overturned anytime soon.
