Liberal Justices Ignore Stare Decisis
Where Was Justice Scalia?

Bye, Bye Roe

The Senate Judiciary Committee just voted 10-8 to send Sam Alito to the full Senate for confirmation as United States Supreme Court Justice. Count the days until confirmation, and then multiply by some number less than 20. That's about how long it will take for the Supremes to find a way to reconsider the core holding of Roe v. Wade.

That will be good news to the tens of thousands of anti-abortion protestors who marched in Washington, D.C. yesterday. It will also be good news for all those who clamor to make clear that there is no such thing as a right to privacy in the federal constitution.  The rest of us will sigh and await more government in more ways in our lives.

Should Alito be confirmed and should he actually vote to uphold the core holding of Roe v. Wade, whatever that holding may be, I will eat a copy of this blog.  So bookmark a copy of this posting. And here's to hoping you do not bookmark in vain.
