The ability to control whether and when to have a child are key to the physical, social and economic health of women and families, and access to legal, safe and affordable birth control and abortion are essential to guarantee that ability.
The Court's whole campaign finance jurisprudence has been based on the idea that money in politics can be an improper influence, but does today's current conservative majority recognize an outside limit for what they accept as proper influence for big money supporters?
Defending lawsuits challenging public displays of Christian crosses, in addition to taking these law-violating monuments down or finding a private institution for them, all seems a considerable waste of time and money for local communities. So I have a recommendation to make.
But the concept of a homonormative society invites all sorts of other, less obvious questions, paramount among them being the logistics of procreation and gender roles.
This case is a perfect microcosm of how both sides of the immigration debate are not helping the cause and both sides are getting more entrenched. I'm a firm believer that this country is a melting pot and that is what has made us an unstoppable force; however, it would be mistaken to think that this animosity toward immigrants is new.

If passed, the ban on same-sex marriages could have devastating consequences on upwards of 86 percent of current legal unions, and up to 60 percent of Jewish newlyweds.
The problem is that the Court sees a warrant as a burden to the police rather than as a protection to the defendant. Civil liberties are about protecting the accused from an overbearing and significantly more powerful police force. So what does this mean?
The IRS's proposed rule has run into the bugaboo that has plagued the Supreme Court and election administrators for years: how to define "political" advertisements.
If the SCOTUS were to strike down the overall contribution limits in the McCutcheon case, we would be back to the same kind of corrupting contributions that resulted in the Watergate scandals in the '70s and the soft money scandals in the '90s. The legal and political consequences would be enormous.
I wonder what kind of panties Lawyer Lady is wearing. Black lace? V-kini? Gulp... thong? More importantly, is she even wearing a bra? If I asked her a...
Today's case is just one of hundreds of stall tactics by industrial polluters in their nearly half-century campaign to evade the requirements of the Clean Air Act. As so many of our citizens continue to die as a result of these stall tactics, we can't be blamed for feeling waves of déjà vu.
