… It doesn’t take a constitutional scholar or lawyer to know that abortion is not in the constitution and clearly you’d expect people like Sebelius, who can’t be bothered, and Pelosi, that pillar of morality, to know that. They just choose to ignore that fact. Piers Morgan, on the other hand, needs a bit of Constitutional refreshing.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia schooled CNN host Piers Morgan during an interview last night on a host of subjects, including abortion. during the interview, Justice Scalia explained to Morgan how the Constitution does not include a right to abortion.
Scalia says the theory of substantive due process in the Roe v. Wade decision makes no legal sense.
“My Court in recent years has invented what is called ‘substantive due process’ by simply saying some liberties are so important that no process would suffice to take them away. That was the theory used in Roe v. Wade and it’s a theory that is simply a lie,” he said.
In his defense, he is British. Admittedly, there’s not much I know about their constitutional monarchy. But then again, I’m not on CNN.
