In a word…judges.
McCain an Obama couldn’t have been further apart on the issue of judicial appointments.
Obama and McCain have been divided on Supreme Court judges throughout the campaign.
Obama has promised to only appoint judges who take a strong
pro-abortion view while McCain has promised judges who would not make
up the law from the bench but would strictly interpret the Constitution.
Though there are plenty of news stories around carrying the
candidates’ statements, I came across this one in the files the other
day. On the last anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January, Obama vowed to appoint Roe-affirming judges.
“Throughout my career,” Obama continued, “I’ve been a
consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have
consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and
NARAL Pro-Choice America.”
“Reproductive justice” is just a nonsense euphemism for killing
unborn babies. So is ‘the right to choose.’ Obama said that, too.
With one more vacancy on the Supreme Court, we could be
looking at a majority hostile to a women’s fundamental right to choose
for the first time since Roe v. Wade. The next president may be asked
to nominate that Supreme Court justice. That is what is at stake in
It certainly is.
