“Maybe there is a right to abortion,” Scalia said, answering a question from one of the students. “[The founders] didn’t specify, but they didn’t leave it up to the courts to do it either.”

I think that’s the important quote.

Now if only Scalia would live up to it 100% of the time instead of something less than 100% he seems to so far.

Wrong, Wrong, Wrong. Scalia gets an F. The founders (those present at the founding, i.e. the signing of the The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America stated

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

un·al·ien·a·ble: adj. Not to be separated, given away, or taken away; inalienable.

The majority can ONLY exercise JUST power. Majorities can never justly violate unalienable rights or natural rights. A long train of usurpations of these rights legitimates forcible resistance.

This is the UNANIMOUS declaration. It is THE fundamental, foundational principle of this Country. Those who gainsay it should be heaped with derision and scorn for they invite violence, strife and evil to befall this great land.
