As we begin public debate over Roe v. Wade via Samuel Alito’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, reporter Timothy Carney has compiled a list of anti-Roe opinions by pro-choice renowns.
In light of what’s at stake, what they write is surprisingly – no, shockingly – honest and also provides strong validation. Here’s one example:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg – Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court
“Roe, I believe, would have been more acceptable as a judicial decision if it had not gone beyond a ruling on the extreme statute before the court…. Heavy-handed judicial intervention was difficult to justify and appears to have provoked, not resolved, conflict.”
North Carolina Law Review, 1985

One of the extraneous reasons pro-lifers wanted a pro-life Supreme nominee was to provoke public discussion about this indefensible and catastrophic decision. Let the games begin.
