Scalia’s death leaves an important decision

The death of Supreme Court Justice Scalia exposed the attempt to reinterpret the Constitution via the courts. All appointed judges swear to uphold the Constitution and its amendments, not those of a president, lobbyists, politicos, feminists and social engineers. Obama wants to appoint his third pro-abortion appointee to fight Hobby Lobby’s efforts to express their religious beliefs, vote for redefining marriage and holding extreme pro-abortion positions. Today, the nominees for the court are not chosen as expert constitutionalists but as liberal or conservative.

President Obama has appointed 54 judges to the appellate courts, where decisions are critically important to ending abortions. The president appointed 260 district court judges. Consider the impact this has had on hundreds of pro-life state laws passed in recent years. Imagine how many more children we could have saved with more pro-life judges.

Over 60 million unwanted babies were aborted in the U.S. since 1973. Less than two percent were for the life of the mother, rape and incest.

The Dred Scott Decision denied legal personhood to slaves and was later recanted with the 13th and 14th amendments of the Constitution. Will we now grant personhood constitutionally to every unborn baby in a mother’s womb? At Scalia’ death there were four liberal and four conservative judges with one swing vote. Will the next unelected swing vote judge usurp the Legislative and Executive branches?
