It has come to my attention that you haven't actually resigned. And while I'm sure that I fight a lonely, uphill battle, I would like to ask that you reconsider and not resign.
Judge John Roberts can continue his confirmation hearings and be confirmed to replace Judge Rehnquist.

However, now that we know that George Bush is going to nominate some one who has next to nothing in common with you, a change of heart would be surprising but not impossible.

I am a 47-year-old divorced mother of 2 teenagers. I truly am fearful that my civil rights and those of my mother and daughter are about to be confronted with the bias of an overly conservative Supreme Court dominated by white men.

I know I do not know your personal situation. I know that you do not know me from Adam. However, I feel that I must implore you to reconsider your resignation; for my own benefit, for the benefit of my family and for the benefit of all women in the United States. It is that important.

Please do not leave us to the wolves that will not support our right to privacy. Please do not put people who question whether or not our education is for the better good in charge of our civil rights. Please make one more sacrifice for the women of this great country of ours by deciding to stay on the Supreme Court until at least January of 2007.

I say January of 2007 because I believe that the conservative fire that has swept this country is finally beginning to be extinguished by it's own ferocity. People are beginning to understand that George Bush isn't a moderate. By January of 2007, I believe that the make up of the Congress and Senate will be enough changed that George Bush will have to replace you with a moderate who more closely resembles your positions.

I hope you take a moment to at least consider my request. And don't think I don't realize the amount of courage that it will take for you to do this. You are a strong woman though. You are an independent woman. You can do this. And remember, while many will be negatively shocked by such an action, there will be many more of us who will thank God you did.
