Picking a pro-abortion Supreme Court justice is apparently NOT above his paygrade
No shocker here as President Obama predictably is seeking a pro-abortion candidate to replace Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.
"You know, I am somebody who believes women should have the ability to make often very difficult decisions about their own bodies and issues of reproduction," the president said. "I don't have litmus tests around any of these issues but I will say that I want somebody who is going to be interpreting our Constitution in a way that takes into account individual rights, and that includes women's rights.
"Part of what our core constitutional values promote is the notion that individuals are protected in their privacy and their bodily integrity and women are not exempt from that," he added.
That is great news! Individuals in America includes women! I can’t wait to tell my daughters that thanks to the courageous stance of President Obama, they are now included in the group known as “individuals”. It is a proud, proud day for America! Of course there is no surer sign of a person being an individual than having the right to kill a baby.
It would be nice if the President, the world’s most powerful man, had the courage and integrity to just say it like it is. He wants a nominee who will be a reliable vote in favor of legalized abortion. Everyone with half a brain knows it. If this is such an important right, shouldn’t we be able to actually utter the word “abortion” instead of dancing around it and hiding it in legalese?
I didn’t expect Obama to put forth a pro-life nominee. Nor did I expect him to actually show some honesty about what he is looking for. I just wish the pro-abortion forces would have the intestinal fortitude to say “abortion” instead of “women’s health” or “reproductive rights”. It says a lot about someone that they are afraid to even name what they are standing up for.
