While right wing Republicans denounce Harriet Miers as not being sufficiently opposed to abortion, Democrats pretend she might not be so bad.

Not so bad? She wants to prevent abortion. Just last week, Miers provided documentation showing she had pledged to support a constitutional amendment banning abortions.

How much worse could she be on this issue? The Democrats, who pretend to defend women’s rights to abortion, don’t have an answer. They certainly don’t defend women’s rights to choose.
