Samuel Alito

Dem's have already been criticized for saying Alito's nomination is "needlessly provocative". I say, if this man is indeed confirmed to be an associate Justice on the SCOTUS, women can kiss their rights goodbye.

I love what Harry Reid had to say on the matter, “President Bush would leave the Supreme Court looking less like America and more like an old boys club,” Reid added, referring to the fact that Alito is neither a woman nor a minority. Yep, Bush has managed to nominate another white guy to the SC, but I already talked about that in my previous post.

What scares me most, besides the greater chance we as Americans will end up back in the 1950s, is that Alito is a constructionist. This means he thinks the constitution says what it says and that's it, all arguments ended when the Senators signed their names to the bottom. That's like saying the Bible is valid and we should live by it 100% even though the Jewish Bible was written over 2,000 years ago.

(Agh. I made the mistake of clicking on RedState.organd now my eyes hurt, lol.)

So what this boils down to is the soon to come filibuster of Judge Alito by the Dem's and the threat of the Nuclear Option by the Repub's.

Alito was the only dissenter in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. He would undoubtedly uphold parental notification laws and vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. And let us not forget Griswold v. Conneticut.

I don't understand why the anti-choice folks can't seem realize that the way to decrease abortions throughout the world is to educate the youths that will bring forth the next generation. Outlawing a procedure that has been around since the beginning of time will do nothing to get rid of its necessity, but will only serve to make it more dangerous to obtain and experience.

Why would you make a minor have a child and then use the argument that she's not old/mature enough to decide to have an abortion? Raising a child doesn't require a certain maturity (in more ways than one)?
