When US Senators questioned Samuel Alito at his confirmation hearing in 2006, the now-Supreme Court Justice, author of Friday’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, hinted that the landmark 1973 abortion ruling was an “important precedent.”
“It is a precedent that has now been on the books for several decades,” Alito said. “It has been challenged. It has been reaffirmed.”
At the same hearing, he talked about the principle of “stare decisis,” where Supreme Court justices respect the precedents set by previous decisions in making their rulings.
Words of wisdom from an out of touch, self-aggrandizing elitist racist. Wonder how many of the “inventory” he’s willing to support.
Is this the tyranny we were warned about? Unelected activist judges, legislating from the bench off stolen seats?
The cartoonist forgot to add horns and a pointy tail. Only a devil would be happy with the mess Alito has caused.
Alito: Religious freedom is my right to force my religion on you
All the RW trolls on here accusing the pro-choice side of being engaged in violence have lost their minds. Go find the total count of abortion centers or Planned Parenthoods blown up or arsoned and abortion doctors killed, and then, try to find any kind of equivalent by the pro-choice side. You can’t. The terrorists are on one side, and it’s your side.
There is pro-choice and anti-choice. The Pope has declared that the Catholic judges and Congress members that vote for more access to guns are NOT pro-life.
Roberts should punch his lights out.
We have to somehow change the nominee process for ALL our Federal judges. Both dems & repubs will pack the SCOTUS with their kind of people. There MUST be a non-government, independent group to make the nominations WITHIN A SHORT TIME PERIOD after a SCJ dies or retires. It is an absolute, brazen abuse of power for a senator to determine when HE/SHE will take the action. NO CONGRESSMEN should be allowed to wield such power as the turtle did.
Some folks just ain’t happy til EVERYBODY ELSE is unhappy…..my Dad always said that…..
The Checks & Balances theory has been debunked by justices that may have perjured themselves off the court
Alito is a putz. And “putz” gets past today’s GoComics Bowdlerizer too!
The McConnell / Heritage-Foundation arguably has done more damage to this country than the Maga Madman. Their SCOTUS doesn’t care about people or civil rights, having been specifically hand-picked by the fascist and misogynistic Heritage Foundation for exactly what they are doing, and are young enough to be killing civil rights (and people) for many generations to come.
It’s no mistake that Magas went with Trvmp. Mitch explicitly said they “only need an idiot with a pen” to do their dirty work against the country, and has also bragged that a Democratic President will never be able to successfully nominate another judge, to any court. It’s also why they block all of Biden’s director nominations.
Riots have been going on for over two years. Think Anderson.
GOP Fascism creeping into our democracy!
The mouths of divisive racist, sexist, lying right wing traitors never stop spewing garbage.
They do not want peace, happiness or cooperation.
