Belief Blog: Ohio ruling casts light on abortion as midterm issue

A Democratic congressman from Ohio got a boost from his state's elections commission on Thursday in his campaign to prevent an anti-abortion group from running billboards attacking him for supporting the healthcare bill.

The decision by a three-member panel of the Ohio Elections Commission allows U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus to move forward with a complaint alleging that the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion group, is deliberately lying about his record when it says he supports government-funded abortion because of his March vote for healthcare reform.

    You know the economy is improving when the right goes back to the social issues.

    I am still amazed that so many women still feel the need to stick their noses into the personal decisions being made by another woman. I really had thought we were better than this.

    It is a rule of journalism that Republicans, the Chamber of Pots, and right-wingers generally are entitled to lie, defame, forge evidence, and use profanity; Democrats and their allies are "thugs" and unpatriotic if they reply in kind, "whiners" if they protest; "wimps" and "losers" if they don't respond at all. Under those circumstances, I doubt if we will ever have a fair and informed election again; I nonetheless wish Mr. Driehhaus every success.
