(CNSNews.com) - Liberal organizations reacted quickly and strongly to Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement on Friday, referring to her departure as creating "an ominous vacancy" that could lead to "terrible changes" on the U.S. Supreme Court.
"The battle for the Supreme Court has begun," declared a release from NARAL Pro-Choice America that featured a picture of President George W. Bush. "Don't let his choice end yours.
"Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement gives President Bush and the radical right the chance they've been waiting for to overturn Roe v. Wade," according to the group's website. "They're pulling out all the stops to push through President Bush's anti-choice judicial nominees to the Supreme Court. We cannot let it happen.
"Help save the Supreme Court from President Bush: Tell your senators to vote NO on anti-choice nominees!"
A similar call was sounded by Vicki Saporta, president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation, who urged that "Bush should choose moderation over extremism" when selecting O'Connor's successor.

I sure hope that this is going to be 'ominous' for them! Anything that makes them shake in their little booties is great with me!
Yeah. I might feel sorry for them if I weren't so busy laughing at them.
To a liberal... this is the equivalent of the Pope dying.
Didn't take long for the embracers of infant killing and their blood-industry supporters to start their shrill outbursts.
Obviously, that is not the job of the judiciary. More than any other quote in this piece, this makes absolutely clear that the left believes that the courts are there to "legislate" their agenda.
What a bunch of drama queens the liberals are.
I love it that they're so nervous about this. I hope GWB toys with them for a while over this.
Be vewy vewy afwaid.
Heheh. Yeah, that would be a lot of fun to watch.
They really need to get lives.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Agreed! It's great to see them in panic-mode, and I'm sure they will be terrified when Bush's nominee is finally revealed!
But, wait a minute didn't the libs get all bent out of shape when they thought that the SC elected George Bush!!!!!!
The sweet smell of liberal panic in the morning... Ahhhhhh no matter how this turns out its fun watching liberals wet their undies over a Supreme Court vacancy!
If they're wearing any at all. You know these "freedom" types.
Dry it up sluts.
I know a few liberals who actually cried tears of sorrow when the current pope was elected.
All the fights on the Hill have been leading up to this. We ain't seen nothing yet.
Better get a pair of welding goggles because the only way the Pres. is going to get a decent nominee through the Senate is the nuclear option.
The dims are setting it up now.
I hope they lose it if Bush nominates a strict constructionist. The deep divide between 'us' & 'them' has got to come to a head sooner or later.
