    that's the first thing to shoot down.

    It sucks the Hyde is the status quo, that our pro-choice legislators have allowed it every year for, what, 32 years?

    I agree, Hyde has to go, and hopefully we can breathe some new fight into the choice community--and our supposedly pro-choice political leaders--to take it on. But right now, job 1 is killing this really shitty amendments.

      Just because the other side is being disingenuous doesn't mean that you play the same game rhetorically.

      I continue to believe (and am willing to put money on) that nobody, not women's groups, not nobody, will try and do a damned thing about Hyde once they get rid of what they are concerned about.  The best chance of eliminating Hyde is now, when women who aren't poor and largely of color have something they care about enough at risk.

      But again, we agree to disagree.
