As Ellen Goodman noted (10/5, Opinion, “Fate of Supreme Court also hangs in balance”), the direction of the Supreme Court will fall to the nominees of the next president, who is expected to nominate up to three Supreme Court justices. Those nominees will determine the constitutionality of Rove v. Wade for the next 30 to 50 years, a ruling already responsible for making legal the slaughter of tens of millions of unborn innocents.
Sen. McCain has vowed to nominate justices who will support the right to life. Sen. Obama, as an Illinois congressman, supported the ghastly partial birth abortion procedure and opposed Born Alive legislation that would have protected those who survived abortion. He would undoubtedly nominate justices who would support Roe v. Wade.
If you support Sen. Obama, be prepared to answer the cries of millions more unborn who never had a chance to live, to explain why you refused to support their right to life that you gave your own children, and what greater good you believed a President Obama would achieve in exchange for their lives.
