  •  Not Sure There's A Price (none)
    to be paid at all.  The Republicans are hoping they get O'Connor out and let their next judicial nominee do the work of overturning Roe in a "states rights" kind of way, so the resulting shit storm doesn't land on their Congress, and then they can outlaw abortion in all the red states right off and then take the battle to the blues.  If we force the Republican Congress to vote NOW, there are still 5 Supreme Ct votes to declare it unconstitutional, but the "oh, they won't really go there" wing of the Republican party (including my libertarian-leaning neighbor down the street who voted for Bush) will be forced to see their true colors.  Not really a price at all.
