Lawrence Lessig on Abortion

 

 


I would veto a law defunding Planned Parenthood

One thing is to resolve an ambiguity some thing the referendum president raises: Am I president only for that one issue? No.

The other is to say what I would do with a long list of specific proposals. That's the bit I meant by a trustee for the VP--to decide things that make the next administration as effective and successful as it can be--except to the extent it interferes with the task of passing the CEA or is something I could not morally do.

E.g., Congress passes a law defunding planned parenthood. I'm against it. I'm sure the VP is against it. I exercise my power to veto it.
