Supreme Exaggeration

Just a quick little thing I wanted to share with you today. I was torturing myself, watching Fox News (nothing else is on Sunday afternoons!) and they just had an anchor on there say something to the effect of "the most controversial issues of our time, abortion and gay marriage, will be in the hands of one person, the next Supreme Court nominee."

I know it's always an issue when the Supreme Court comes up, but did the folks over at Fox forget that we've already had the abortion debate? Roe v. Wade put the subject to bed, at least in terms of legality. Obviously people are trying to overturn it, but the decision on abortion doesn't rest solely in one person's hands, we've already had people make that decision... 36 years ago. If we want to travel down that road again, it's going to take a long time and go through a lot of people before it even reaches the Supreme Court, so saying the decision is in the hands of one person is beyond ridiculous.

Sensationalism from Fox News? I'm stunned!
