Of not, maybe you should give them a shout. This came to my attention this morning.
President Obama has nominated four people into the Justice Department - think law enforcement. Here is the scoop on these people.
1) David Ogden - "Ogden opposes restrictions on abortion and pornography, and has represented Playboy and Penthouse in court. He has filed a brief before the U.S. Supreme Court in support of child pornographer Stephen Knox, who possessed sexually explicit videos of children. Ogden argued that, because the children's genitalia were partially covered by clothing, such exploitation is protected by the First Amendment." In other words, Obama wants to put someone in our LAW ENFORCEMENT department who doesn't think child pornography is wrong!!! Sickening, if you ask me.
2)Dawn Johnsen - pro abortion. Attorney for NARAL Pro-Choice America. Equates an unwanted pregnancy with slavery -YES, SLAVERY!! Can you believe that? Correct me if I am wrong, but Slavery was something that the slave had NO control over...they didn't make a choice to get there. A woman (unless raped, of course) makes a CHOICE to have sex, thus becoming pregnant.
"In the papers, Johnsen said that any restriction that makes abortion less accessible is, in her view, tantamount to “involuntary servitude” because it “requires a woman to provide continuous physical service to the fetus in order to further the state’s asserted interest [in the life of the unborn].”
In effect, a woman “is constantly aware for nine months that her body is not her own: the state has conscripted her body for its own ends.” Such “forced pregnancy,” she contends, violates the Thirteenth Amendment, which prohibits slavery." (click here to see this article)
3) Thomas Perrelli - This man represented Terry Schaivo's husband as they fought to have her starved to death.
4) Elena Kagan - Simply has no experience. Has never argued to the Supreme Court, which would be her job.
Seriously...we (not really we, because I didn't help) have put this man in office, and these are they types of people that he wants to run our country? That's change for ya.
