As if we had any doubt ...

... this memo turns up.

Oh yeah. 10th Amendment? States' rights? Pshaw! Let those silly little things get in the way of Important Missions From God™ to undermine and reverse things like Roe v. Wade or Skinner v. Oklahoma or re-affirm Buck v. Bell? Never!

Not when "This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue" and "This is a great political issue"!

Think about it. If Congress manages to weasel their way into being allowed to intervene by the courts, who says they'll stop there? Why not seize this take down some other niggling petty stuff about personal medical rights while they're at it? After all, "Three generations of imbeciles are enough" right?

By the way, why isn't the illustrious Senator Frist, M.D. pointing out the fact that the recent MRIs show the poor woman's cerebral cortex is liquid?* Did he develop some miraculous neurological cure in the Senate cloakroom? Why isn't anyone who is calling her husband cruel and uncaring pointing out that he was threatened with a restraining order because he was too insistent and demanding to her doctors regarding her care?*

* According to Jay Wolfson, court-appointed guardian ad litem in an interview on ABC News Nightline, May 21, 2005.
