“Pro-Life Judges”


I don’t think that is, or should be, the goal of conservatives. Conservatives, whatever their view on the merits of keeping abortion legal, should want judges, whatever their view of those merits, who are willing to recognize that the Constitution does not authorize judges to bar restrictive abortion laws. I assume that’s what Rod has in mind, too, but the shorthand is misleading and unhelpful. I’m also not sure that a Supreme Court nominee with the view of judicial power on abortion described above is a slam-dunk for confirmation just because Republicans have a majority of the Senate, by the way.
