Re: The Da Vinci Code: SCOTUS version


Kathryn, in its discussion of “how faith might influence law,” the article you link to includes this stupid statement: “Two of the Catholics on the current court–Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas–are abortion foes.” Is it too much to expect an AP reporter to understand that the constitutional position that Scalia and Thomas take on abortion–that the Constitution does not speak to the question but instead leaves it to the people to adopt protective or permissive abortion laws–is substantively neutral on abortion?
