Justice Scalia Defends Life at ACLU Conference

Posted by thelamp on October 26, 2006

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia appeared Oct. 15 on a televised debate with Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union. The discussion on the Constitution and how it speaks to civil liberties took place at the ACLU’s 2006 Membership Conference in Washington, D.C.

Considering that the ACLU and its left-leaning members have demonstrated an profound inability to comprehend the Constitution, Scalia was the perfect person to discuss issues of life and marriage – the foundation of American society.

During his 20 years on the high court, Scalia has frequently opposed the ACLU. He continued to offer Bible-believers hope by reaffirming his belief that abortion and gay rights were never intended to be a part of the Bill of Rights.

Seventy-year-old Scalia, who was appointed to the court in 1986 by President Reagan, said that is “why abortion and homosexual sodomy were criminal for 200 years.” He also argued that liberal judges in the past improperly established new political rights such as abortion.

“On controversial issues on stuff like homosexual rights, abortion, we debate with each other and persuade each other,” said Scalia, who consistently has been a strong voice for life. If this justice had his way, the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision establishing a woman’s right to abortion would be overturned. Hopefully, Scalia will be able to persuade the court’s two newest members, Chief Justice John Roberts and Samuel Alito, of this life-affirming conviction, especially in light of their upcoming decision on partial-birth abortion.
