President Bush has named his first appointee to the U.S. Supreme Court, The Hon. John G. Roberts, of Washington, D.C. Widely hailed as a thoughtful, intelligent man, with a distinguished pedigree in Law and a record of exemplary practice both before and above the Bar, Mr. Roberts would appear to be a shoo-in for confirmation in the current climate.
Most of the schpilkes, and a large degree of the Right’s satisfaction with Mr. Roberts would seem to center on his having written in 1991 a legal brief that declared, “We continue to believe that Roe was wrongly decided and should be overruled.”
Don’t people understand that after Roe v. Wade is overturned, none of the right girls will even want an abortion?
Fortunately, those who might will still be able to afford a good one. For the rest, chastity belts and scarlet letters ought to be back in fashion soon.
