RE: Half Full
If Romney wins, he will get the chance to appoint at least one, maybe two new justices to the Supreme Court, and it they who will decide if abortion remains legal in this country. We know the 4 right wing judges on the court will ban abortion first chance they get, while the 4 liberal judges will protect a woman's right to choose - then there's Anthony Kennedy, the "swing vote" on this issue who has vote pro-choice, but he's 76 years old, and liberal judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg is almost 80 years old, so, if either one of them retires and Romney gets to replace one or both of them, women can kiss their right to choice goodbye.
In fact, the #1 reason to elect Obama is the Supreme Court, because whoever is the next president will, like I said, probably have the chance to appoint at least two new justices to the court, maybe more, and that will not only affect women's right to choose, but women's rights in general, not to mention worker's rights, gay rights, civil liberties, separation of church and state, etc.
