Right to Death

I think I just mentioned that I think protests are counterproductive.  I'm also pro-choice.  And I take a very dim view of people waving gross-out anti-abortion signs in front of schools, though, of course (she said tiredly) I fully respect their constitutional right to do so.  I doubt that Jerry Pouillon and I would have much enjoyed sitting down for small-talk over an icy beverage.

Nonetheless.  I don't think it helps the pro-choice side when a New York Times reporter writes an article on the fellow who was shot the other day and does everything but headline it "He was asking for it!"  By the end, I was half expecting a quote to the effect that he liked to wear short skirts and bum cigarettes off of married men in bars.
