    : why, and what is 18 USC 1462?

    This is the now-famous "Communications Decency Act," part of the
    Telecommunications Bill which was recently signed into law. Among other
    things, the bill prohibits discussion of abortion on the Internet. This
    is something of a grey area, since a Phila. judge recently filed an
    injunction against the law.
    Your taxpayer dollars at work...
