Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.

Life Matters


Over at The Public Discourse, which is rapidly becoming the “must-subscribe-to-RSS-feed” website for anyone interested in “Ethics, Law, and the Public Good,” there are two great pieces this week.  Bench Memos’ own Gerard Bradley applies the logic of the Golden Rule to the question whether a pro-lifer can cast a vote for a “pro-choice” candidate.  And Michael New, also familiar to NRO readers, demonstrates the difference that pro-life laws have made in recent decades, even in the looming shadow of Roe v. Wade.  And all of that progress would be destroyed by a President Obama signing the Newspeak-labelled “Freedom of Choice Act.”  Must reading for Douglas Kmiec–if arguments still have power to persuade.
