NY Constitution Party Opposes Alito

The NY State Constitution Party has issued the following press release that outlines their opposition to President Bush’s appointment of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.

The Constitution Party of New York announced its opposition to the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the United States Supreme Court.

The party’s executive committee, reviewing the facts surrounding Judge Alito’s judicial rulings, states: “We are not satisfied with Alito as an improvement over Roberts, Miers, and Gonzales. In one case in 1997 he joined a decision applying the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade in upholding a New Jersey law that let parents sue on behalf of deceased children but denied suit on behalf of deceased unborn children.”

Further, “In 2000, he joined a decision applying Stenberg v. Carhart a decision that struck down a Nebraska law banning partial-birth abortion and applied it to a similar New Jersey law. In 1995, he cast the deciding vote in a 2-to-1 decision striking down portions of a Pennsylvania law that restricted abortion. Also, while a senior at Princeton University, he chaired an undergraduate task force that recommended the decriminalization of sodomy, and said discrimination against gays in hiring ‘’should be forbidden.’’

We find that Judge Alito follows the current legal but immoral status of Roe v. Wade as settled law. His approval of abortion on demand, allowed by current law denying the person hood of the pre-born child in the womb, is an egregious crime against humanity and deserves his disqualification.

    My main concern about Alito is the wiretaps that he supported, but this pro-abortion record has me mildly worried too.
