Words from the Past

In honor of Justice Rehnquist, probably the strongest proLife person in office we have ever had

Justice Rehnquist, in his dissenting opinion, took issue with the use of the Fourteenth Amendment to justify the right to an abortion:

"I have difficulty in concluding, as the Court does, that the right of "privacy" is involved in this case. Texas, by the statute here challenged, bars the performance of a medical abortion by a licensed physician on a plaintiff such as Roe. A transaction resulting in an operation such as this is not 'private' in the ordinary usage of that word. Nor is the 'privacy' that the Court finds here even a distant relative of the freedom from searches and seizures protected by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, which the Court has referred to as embodying a right to privacy - To reach its result the Court necessarily has had to find within the scope of the Fourteenth Amendment a right that was apparently completely unknown to the drafters of the Amendment."
These were his dissenting words in the Roe vs Wade case.
Rehnquist was one man we didn't have to demand an end to abortion from. His tireless efforts to correct the wrongs of the January 22nd, 1973 ruling followed him til the day he died.
I believe Judge Rehnquist did not resign from office because he knew President Bush would not put in office a man who had the same strong-held beliefs that he did. I believe he went to the grave hoping to see the day that Roe vs Wade is overturned.
