Sammy: 'All your wombs could belong to us'
“Of course, he’s against abortion.”
— 90-year-old Rose Alito, clearing things up for reproductive freedom advocates before Sam even filled out his questionnaire.
Hey, at least his mom gave everyone fair warning that Roe is up for grabs if Alito makes it to the Supremes. He simply confirmed it yesterday…(WaPo):
Alito edged closer to suggesting that he might be willing to reconsider Roe if he is confirmed to the high court, refusing, under persistent questioning by Democrats, to say that he regards the 1973 decision as “settled law” that “can’t be reexamined.” In this way, his answers departed notably from those that Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. gave when asked similar questions during his confirmation hearings four months ago.
…After his exchange with Alito yesterday, [Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.)] told reporters: “Sam Alito would not use those same words. It really, I’m afraid, leaves open the possibility that we are considering the nomination of a justice who will change 30 years of law in this country, a dramatic change to the American society.”
Maybe a fetus will be a co-pilot in the HOV lane…
