Editor's note

Earlier today, the Cucking Stool put up a post dealing with testimony at a June 23, 2005, Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on the Constitution. The Senate's record of the hearing, which dealt with the effects of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, can be found here. The Committee's record of the event indicated that Senator Amy Klobuchar made comments that would indicate that she agreed with the anti-choice position of some of the witnesses.

We believe that the identification of the Senator on the Judiciary Committee site is incorrect. Senator Klobuchar was not elected until November 2006 and became a Senator in 2007, making it unlikely that she was actually serving on the Judiciary Committee on June 23, 2005.

We regret failing to catch this error and express our apologies to the Senator.

We do not, however, back away from our concern that the health care reform efforts in Congress have the potential for turning women's health care into a second class form of medicine.
