Is Roe vs. Wade the reason U.S. waged the stupid Trillion-dollar War?
Is Roe vs. Wade the reason U.S. fiscal policy is to emasculate public investment so billionaires can afford to feed caviar to their pets?
Is Roe vs. Wade the reason Fire Departments stand by and watch a man's house burn?
Is Roe vs. Wade a sensible basis on which to place one's vote for national office?

Let me give you a clue. The very last thing that the billionaires behind Palin, Beck and the new Congressional majority want is for Ros vs. Wade to actually be overturned !
