Roe v. Wade

Will Brett Kavanaugh Stand For Property Rights?

There’s lots of talk about where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stands on the Roe v Wade abortion decision and if he would vote to rescind it. There is another very controversial Supreme Court decision made just a few years ago, supported by Anthony Kennedy, the Kelo decision, that conservates should be asking about during Judge Kavanaugh's vetting.

The public opposes what Roe v. Wade did

Voters reject Roe’s expansive view of abortion rights and Roe’s removal of abortion from the democratic process. In short, most voters don’t support what Roe does in any regard. If the Senate confirms Brett Kavanaugh, and then if the conservative majority of the Supreme Court overturns Roe, it will in fact be arranging abortion policy — legally and constitutionally — as most people seem to prefer. Democrats are afraid the public might find out what Roe actually did.

Even abortion enthusiasts know Roe v. Wade is a legal abomination

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The fact of so many 5-4 decisions lays bare the truly shocking and stunning reality that the high court has become infected by at least four Supreme Court justices who have no idea what they are doing. They have never grasped the Constitution. They have no understanding of the Separation of Powers. They are totally unaware of the limitations of their own powers. They are, to be blunt, constitutionally illiterate. So many 5-4 decisions simply means that there are at least four justices now on the court who think that the court — not the elected legislature — makes law.

‘Don’t You Dare Touch Roe!’ — Judicial Confirmation Silly Season Begins

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Regardless of a jurist’s legal position on substantive due process, or of the jurist’s moral or policy positions on what it has wrought, Roe is part of a doctrinal edifice. To reach out and try to overrule it, particularly in a case in which it is not necessary to do so, would be seen as an attack on the entire edifice. The Supreme Court is not going to take that on. A more conservative Court would reject the promiscuous language of Justice Kennedy’s “liberty” musings and admonish that the polling station, not the courthouse, is the place for working out most clashes between the individual and society. It is not going to turn back the cultural clock.

Roe v. Wade and the Confusion of Sen. Collins

William Murchison, The American Spectator

How useful to note Sen. Collins’ confusion between the abiding principles of law and the politics of the moment. It is a very modern kind of confusion, making the stakes in Supreme Court confirmation hard to discern. It is enough to know the present stakes are altitudinous: far, far less about Roe vs. Wade than about prospects for the survival of American freedoms.

The inevitable search for the litmus test

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The size of the Republican majority in the Senate, such as it is — one vote, which the Republicans can afford to lose because Vice President Pence can break a tie — might tempt a senator such as Mzz Collins to hold a nomination hostage until she gets a nominee she thinks she can trust to vote her way. But there are several Democratic senators, on the run in the November elections, who could adjust their moral convictions in the interest of personal survival. That’s the genius of Mitch McConnell’s determination to hold a vote before the November elections.

Overturn Roe v. Wade

Editors, Washington Examiner

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s 1992 ruling upholding the incredibly flawed 1973 abortion decision hid naked politics behind meaningless words. It gravely harmed the court and our politics, and its body count is massive. As Kennedy, blessedly, vacates his seat, the central mandate for the man or woman who will take his seat, and for all the justices, is to wipe away a disgrace that ranks alongside Dred Scott, and overtun Roe and Casey.

The Only Thing Worse For Republicans Than John McCain In The Senate

With her radical leftist views on same sex marriage and opposition to the Republican Party’s platform position on abortion, the only thing worse than having John McCain in the Senate would be for Governor Doug Ducey to appoint his liberal wife Cindy to succeed him.

Washington Post Writer: Killing Down Syndrome People OK

Pro-abortion advocates, such as Ruth Marcus, claim they are standing up for the rights of American women. The reality is what they are advocating is a new wave of eugenics through which those who can, through pre-natal genetic testing, be determined to have Down syndrome or who are otherwise deemed undesirable are hunted down and killed.
