Abortion Advocates Disrupt Pro-Life Press Conference on Samuel Alito

by jasontromm
Abortion advocates disrupted a press conference on Thursday by pro-life women's groups seeking to express their support for the Supreme Court nomination of Samuel Alito. "True to form, advocates of so-called “choice” angrily tried to silence our choice to support Judge Alito’s fair confirmation process."


Alito's Libertarian Streak

by jasontromm (via)
Most debate about Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito has focused on his propensity to vote to overrule Roe v. Wade and the similarity between him and conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. But despite the superficial parallels between the two conservative, Italian-American Catholic jurists, it is important to recognize that Alito has a substantial libertarian dimension to his jurisprudence as well as a conservative one. In several key fields of law, he is more likely than Scalia and other conservatives to be skeptical of assertions of government power. More important, there is much in his record that should appeal to libertarians and -- to a lesser extent -- even left-wing liberals.

The issue that won't go away

by jasontromm
Have you ever wondered why abortion remains the most controversial issue in America today? It's been over three decades since Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all 50 states, for any reason, through all nine months of a woman's pregnancy, yet it remains unsettled. Why else would this issue now be the "litmus test" for appointments to our highest court?

This is what 'advice and consent' means

I eagerly await the announcement of President Bush's real nominee to the Supreme Court. If the president meant Harriet Miers seriously, I have to assume Bush wants to go back to Crawford and let Dick Cheney run the country.

NARAL's slander of John Roberts helps his confirmation

by jasontromm
In addition to his ambiguous record as a lawyer and judge, Supreme Court nominee John Roberts has the benefit of opponents who seem determined to discredit themselves and guarantee his confirmation.
