Abort Supreme pick
Last Thursday, the day following President Bushs pick of his Supreme Court nominee, Judge John G. Roberts, NARAL Pro-Choice New York held a rally in Union Square that drew hundreds of protesters concerned about Robertss stance on abortion and Roe v. Wade. Among politicians who spoke were Assemblymembers Deborah Glick, Richard Gottfried and Scott Stringer, State Senator Liz Krueger and City Councilmembers Margarita Lopez and Chris Quinn. Even if Roe v. Wade were overturned, the states have the ultimate decision on whether abortion is legal, and New York State is pro-abortion.
