1. Lots of folks were right.
But because so many people on our side believed that
it was all over when Roe v Wade was decided, this
never got the attention within our Party that it
should have received. Neither have hundreds of other
"little" laws that have whittled away, nibble by
nibble, women's rights, especially regarding repro-
ductive rights.

And now the bitter fruit is ripening all over the
Red Zones of the country.

Well, maybe now (when it's too late for an entire
generation of women), the message will be heard.

(I still don't expect our Party to actually *DO*
anything about it, of course. They won't even
*THINK* about doing anything about it until it
starts to threaten their ability to garner votes.
Will it?)
