Your move, Stevo…

Hilary Clinton wrapped up her short “summit” in Canada with these parting words:

“You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion,” she said.

“I do not think governments should be involved in making these decisions. It is perfectly legitimate for people to hold their own personal views based on conscience, religion or any other basis. But I’ve always believed the government should not intervene in decisions of such intimacy.”

That is pretty damned pointed. And especially – in spite of what neocons will claim – when compared to Canadian politicos, Clinton is to the right of both Grits and Tories of bygone years (Martin, Mulroney, Clark and Chretien, for example) so access to abortion is not just a “lefty” thing…

Of course, Harpy and his happy gang are more of the George W / Dick Cheney ilk…

Now the Harperites find themselves in danger of being stranded between what their best buds – the Americans – are looking for and what their core, anti-choice religious zealots are pushing.

Rock, meet Mr. Hard Place!

The picture is priceless. It looks like,

You put that hand on me you grease ball & I’ll knock you back to the caves from whence you came!
