As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right. While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue- no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

 

 

private family matters............. unemployment, debt, underwater on your mortgage, health insurance, child's education.

 

i guess it's only private stuff up until the government wants to get involved so they can control the lives of people.

Eddy:

 

Your comment raises the same constitutional quandaries Professor ****her wrestles with:

 

"Are there basic values - moral, social, or economic - that truly reflect a national consensus?

 

Even if there are such values, does the existence of a consensus justify reading them into the Constitution?

 

Do the Court's fundamental value adjudications in fact rest upon an adequately widespread consensus?

 

Or do they reflect values shared by only a segment of society?

 

Do they ultimately reflect nothing more than the beliefs of a majority of Justices at a particular time?

 

Are fundamental value adjudications unacceptable if the Court cannot demonstrate an adequate link to constitutional text, history, or structure?

 

Is it possible to state a principled, disciplined "fundamental values" approach that safeguards adequately against merely subjective judicial lawmaking?"

I thought you guys loved big government conservatism?

 

 

"big government conservatism"

^^^

I like that phrase because it encapsulates what RINO Republicans - those "frugal socialists" - have wrought.
