Brownback Opening Statement


Brownback takes on the silly “balance” argument (i.e., that it’s somehow significant that Alito is replacing O’Connor). As he points out, Dems didn’t seem concerned about the effect on balance when Ruth Bader Ginsburg replaced Byron White.

Also squarely addresses both the patent wrongness of Roe and its many consequences, such as the widespread killing of unborn children diagnosed with Down’s syndrome.
