"Simply put, now is the time"

In response to my post here yesterday about South Dakota's anti-abortion law, Faren brought up this blazing column by Mark Morford in the San Francisco Chronicle. "It is time," he says, for South Dakotan women to "Get the hell out, right now."

Now, his column speaks to Americans, yet the impacts of American law and internal policies are felt around the globe.

So this quote from Morford means something to all of us, no matter where we live.
"I think the stars are aligned," said Matthew Michels, South Dakota House Speaker and Republican, referring to the appointments of Alito and Roberts to the Supreme Court. "Simply put, now is the time."
We've got so much to deal with in the world. To have to fight against the erosion of what should be basic human rights is a tragedy of ridiculous proportions.

It is time. It is time for, amongst much else, Supreme Court term limits.
