Skip to comments.NARAL: Roberts Will Overturn Roe v. Wade - ("feminazis" screaming for scalps already!)
Posted on 07/19/2005 8:55:06 PM PDT by CHARLITE
NARAL, the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, immediately lashed out at President Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court.
"If Roberts is confirmed to a lifetime appointment, there is little doubt that he will work to overturn Roe v. Wade," a NARAL statement said Tuesday night.
"As deputy solicitor general under the first President Bush, he argued to the Supreme Court that 'Roe was wrongly decided and should be overruled,' " NARAL also claimed. Abortion will likely be the most contentious issue surrounding Judge Roberts and his nomination.
When Bush nominated Roberts to the D.C. Court of Appeals in 2003, NARAL complained:
"We believe he was nominated in large measure because of his narrow view of constitutional rights, and it is for this same reason that the Senate should reject his nomination."
The pro-abortion group was particularly irked by Roberts' argument: "The Court's conclusion in Roe that there is a fundamental right to an abortion finds no support in the text, structure, or history of the Constitution."
Republicans control the Senate's Judiciary Committee by 10-to-8, and the full Senate with 55 seats.
Unless the Democrats filibuster, Roberts is a clear favorite to win confirmation.
If the Democrats do launch a filibuster, Republicans may finally unleash "the nuclear option" and do away with the Senate rule that allows a minority to block the majority will.
It just don't get any better than this.
Who's got the popcorn? The keg's out back.
Scarborough tonight said the feminists said the same thing about Souter.
Confirmation of the correct, qualified nominee!
We had an election 8 months ago that settled this question, I understand that Liberals are incapable of accepting defeat in any fashion, but the time has come to denounce these Leftists for what they are....
The left will refer to the Abortion issue as "Reproductive Rights" despite the fact that nowhere in the Constitution is it said that the rights of the unborn are not equally protected. This simple fact turns Roe-v-Wade on it's head
Besides, are there no other criteria to appoint a judge, other than 1 or 2 issues?
How would a SCOTUS Justice "work to overturn" any law?
Sounds like a plan!
"It just don't get any better than this."
The perfect comment on this. I am having a ball. Opened a beer, relaxed, and I went to visit the DUmmies. For highly entertaining reading I recommend a visit. Laughs 'o plenty. Some are foaming at the mouth and dragging out any old info on him they can find to put him in a bad light, some are somber in defeat. But the most telling thing I have been seeing is how they want to fight the nomination for no other purpose then to obstruct. How do you tell when libs are dying? You start to hear the whimpering. You are right, right, right umgod. It just don't get any better than this.
Sorry, Sweetie-pie, but that's what y'all said about David Souter, and he turns out to be your dream-justice!
Have any of ya heard the tale of the boy who cried "wolf!"??
I too went to DU...... it's almost as bad as '04 election nite.
The League of Baby Killers is upset with the man Bush has chosen to replace O'Conner. So what else is new?
The proper time to make the choice is before conception.
Shhhhh. You're going to ruin that dramatic 'movie trailer feel' that every leftist special interest group public statement is aiming for.
Question to NARAL and their supporters:
Why is it so important to you to be able to continue to kill babies? Isn't 40 MILLION enough?
These people are soooo effin perverse. You'd think it might occur to them to actually campaign to get legislation to get what they want instead of cmpaigning to keep the system broken.
They can have anything they want. All they have to do is persuade enough people to support their causes.
What happened to the crazed 'dump Rove' shouting? They stopped instantly. Michael Savage was right. Bush is playing with the minds of the Democrats.
