Pat Robertson: The Life Spans of Pro-Choice Supreme Court Justices Are in God’s Hands

I would love to know who these people are who think asking Pat Robertson for advice is a good idea. On today’s episode of The 700 Club, someone asked why pro-choice Supreme Court justices “all live to be such an old age.”

Members of the AsociaciĆ³n Guatemalteca de Humanistas Seculares (Guatemalan Association of Secular Humanists) were doing everything in their power to speak out against the horrible idea.
