* Pro-Choice Antonin Scalia: The long-time claimed hero of the pro-life industry, Antonin Scalia, is a pro-abortion justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Reported by the Columbia Tribune: "The reality is the Constitution doesn't address the subject at all," Scalia said of abortion. "It is one of the many subjects not in the Constitution which is therefore left to democracy. If you want the right to an abortion, persuade your fellow citizens it's a good idea and pass a law. If you feel the other way, repeal the law."
Those in pro-life leadership who want to retain their position and influence have promoted such pro-choice politicians and judges as pro-life to create a façade of success. But the house of cards is crashing down as American RTL and other principled pro-life organizations expose the immorality and pro-choice positions of a legion of pro-abort conservative Republicans.
* Farah Corrects, Ertelt Defends, Pro-choice Scalia: In Human Events, Joseph Farah corrected Antonin Scalia, showing how the Constitution in the 5th and 14th amendments protect the life and liberty of all innocent people, which includes the unborn, and that therefore it is completely false to state that the constitution would allow states to authorize the killing of innocent children. Steven Ertelt, in the first comment following Farah's article on Human Events website, defended Scalia's despicable pro-choice legal theory. Ertelt, a National RTL affiliate member, stated, "I think Farrah is taking his words out of context. Scalia was simply saying that no RIGHT to abortion is in the Constitution"
As to the personhood of the child, and the murder of the innocent, consider what Justice Antonin Scalia said on Feb. 4, 2002 at a Pew Forum on religion, politics, and the death penalty. "[T]he only one of my religious views that has anything to do with my job as a judge is the seventh commandment - thou shalt not lie. ... I will strike down Roe v. Wade, but I will also strike down a law that is the opposite of Roe v. Wade. ... One [side] wants no state to be able to prohibit abortion and the other one wants every state to have to prohibit abortion, and they're both wrong..." All Christians should grieve at this. That is not pro-life, it is pro-choice, by process. Scalia, a hero of the pro-life community, hereby grotesquely rejects God's enduring command, Do Not Murder, as the most fundamental of all legal principles. What is the good of not lying, if you then honestly rule to kill the innocent? Our pro-life and Christian leaders have turned the wicked humanist values of moral relativism and legal positivism into the greatest obligation of government. And many conservative judges, who grew up with an inclination toward Judeo-Christian morality and absolutes, could have developed into heroes of life, but instead, they utterly destroy the ultimate legal defense of the unborn, which is not based upon following an arbitrary, man-made, legal process, but only upon personhood and the God-given right to life.
