Senator Leahy ought to resign
The latest from the battle for the soul of America.from the Washington Times
Specifically, Mr. Leahy said, Judge Roberts will have a hard time being confirmed if he doesn't pledge to uphold Roe v. Wade, which declared abortion a constitutional right. "I don't see how somebody who said they didn't consider Roe v. Wade settled law ... I don't see how they get confirmed," he said. Mr. Leahy compared the primacy of Roe to Brown v. Board of Education, which outlawed racial segregation.
Normally you would expect this type of comment from some extreme leftist pro-abortion whacko who wants to get some cheap publicity. But to hear it from the lips of Senator Leahy is even extreme for him. He should apologize to the millions of Americans who find the killing of unborn children inconsistent with the history of this great land and who want to restore legal protection to the most precious and tiniest members of the human family, the unborn child.
Further Leahy insults the memory and the efforts of civil rights leaders who struggled for equal protection under law during the 20th Century. He insults the legacy that calls for all people to respected as human beings. Leahy further insults those women who have died or been mutilated on the abortion altar and who seek to prevent others from being so harmed.
Leahy's comments mark a new low in the politics if hate propagated by the pro-abortion extremists of the day. He is an embarrassment to the U.S. Senate. He should tender his resignation and return to the hills of Vermont where perhaps he may come to realize that all life is sacred and that innocent human life is to be protected by law.
Roe v. Wade was a mockery to all that is right about the law and its purpose. Until it is reversed and the law recognises the right to life of all human beings, our work as protectors of the Constitution will not be finished.
Removing Leahy from the Senate would advance the cause of human rights and remove a religious bigot from the hallowed halls of Congress.
