    We have to make sure these rules are not enforced. Allowing folks to deny vital services because of personal moral objections is outrageous.

    President Bush and his ilk can’t leave Washington soon enough.

    I’m glad 7 states are suing and highlighting that this rule seeks to rob people of their legal rights in the name of protecting people’s rights.

    We had the same initial reaction about New York not being involved in the suit, but this is still good news and it’ll definitely be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    I love living in MA, and Providence, RI was probably my single favorite city I’ve ever lived in (out of 6). I’m glad they’re both on board.

    Yay to Mass and Ct! Currently living in the former and orginally from the latter. And yay for Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey, California and Oregon too!

    That’s great. But correct me if I’m wrong (and there’s a good chance I am) won’t the lawsuits just go to the Supreme Court? With what they’ve been spewing out, I’m not hopeful.

    Cheers to my home (CT) and adoptive (CA) states. Blumenthal is a KICK-ASS AG. would like to see more of him on the national scene. As for Obama doing everything he can, his recent statement on the stem-cell issue that he “prefers legislative action” doesn’t give me much hope that he’ll be willing to stick his neck out for women’s rights. I’ll be delighted to be proven wrong, but I don’t see it.

    I’m so proud of my little state for this! Yay, RI!
