Reynolds’s War

Via GalleySlaves, I ran across a puzzling post from Glenn Reynolds. He is linking to a post by Kathryn about the passage of the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act with the comment, “It’s not like there’s a war on, or anything.” If Reynolds thinks it’s a good idea for minors to be able to get abortions without parental notification, let him argue it. But the idea that it somehow detracts from the war effort for Congress to busy itself with such matters–as though Reynolds would have been delighted to see it happen in February 2001–is hard to take seriously.
