Barrett Opposes Abortion

Well, duh.

Amy Coney Barrett, the supreme court nominee, signed off on an advertisement in 2006 that called for the overturning of Roe v Wade, and called the landmark abortion rights decision “barbaric” and a “raw exercise of judicial power”.


In a statement to the Guardian, the White House said: “As Judge Barrett said on the day she was nominated, ‘A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold.’”

The statement appears to reflect an acknowledgment that Barrett’s personal views on abortion could hurt her chances at confirmation.

I reject the judicial standard that is only held against conservatives. Namely, that any expression of an opinion on anything renders one unfit for the court. What an idiotic standard that is only selectively applied.

In this case, it is well known that Barrett opposes killing babies and thinks Roe was a bad ruling. Every Senator knows it. The fact that she said it in public 16 years ago is not disqualifying. Frankly, I’d be more concerned if she hid her views.

    >Frankly, I’d be more concerned if she hid her views.

    How would you feel if one presidential candidate has a long history of changing his views (on RvW and many, many others) over the past 46 years?

    We have a disgusting society where liberal baby killers are so emboldened to smear people against the baby killing, and the racist liberal abortion camps/killing factories.

    Liberals cheer baby killing.

    Awful. Just awful.

  3. jjf

    Selectively applied?  O RLY.  Are you new here?

    The abortion (pro-life until birth) fanatics have uniformly asked for the abortion opinion of any and all campaigners for elected office, from dogcatcher to school board to mayor and on up, in order to instantly disqualify them from office.

    Oh, we can’t have a suspected Democrat on the school board, you know they’re all pro-baby-killing.  

    It’s like you’ve never met Kevin and a thousand other Kevins.

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    You wear your racist serial baby killing pride like it no big deal.

    Get a conscience.

  5. jjf

    I’m wrong, Kev?  You don’t smear any suspected liberal with the baby-killing insult?  We could be talking about the post office and you’ll pivot to abortion and evolution and climate change.  Owen’s blinders are too tight, apparently he thinks you only selectively apply the abortion test.

    And as a fall back, k will accuse you of being a fascist, marxist, communist, socialist, drug addled alcoholic.

    I haven’t heard a local candidate asked anything like that.
    But if they were asked that question and they answered, that pretty much shows what their political views are.
    So, it is a good way to judge a candidate to see where they stand politically.

    A mother that stands up for the little ones might be a good thing

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    I never pivot to evolution and climate change. I hate talking about both those godless liberal religions.

    Nord, and rest of you liberals. constantly pivot to those subjects when you are embarrassed on subject at hand.

    Show me one time I pivoted to either subject? I’ll give you $100. If you can’t find one, you owe me $100, deal?

  10. jjf

    Sorry, Kev, comments on B&S disappear after a month or so.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    You bore false witness on those 2 points against ne.

    Given you cheer baby killing, I can see why.

    You should, say “Good job ACB, thanks for not being a baby killer.”

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    Can I assume your $100 is in the mail?

  13. penquin

    “Good job ACB, thanks for not being a baby killer.”

    Perhaps we should wait & see if any of her seven kids catch the virus from their White House visit before leaping to this conclusion.

    Something I always wanted to ask .

    Why don’t pro lifers prosecute the woman for murder?

    She literally pays for the actions of the Killers
    ( like a Mafia boss who wants to keep their
    hands clean ) and provides the object of the body
    of the living person to be murdered ?

    She gets a pass ?

  15. Mar

    MHMaley, good question.
    I think extreme pro life people would support prosecuting the mothers.
    But if you get rid of the doctors who break the law, you pretty much have the same effect.
    I would rather prosecute the doctor than the mom.

  16. Pat

    “I would rather prosecute the doctor than the mom.“

    But isn’t the mother more evil than the doctor?
    I mean wouldn’t you consider someone who paid someone else to kill their child just pure evil, especially when they know they can pay someone to murder their child and then get a free pass.

  17. Mar

    I won’t argue with you on your points, Pat.

  18. Pat


  19. Mar

    Because I don’t disagree with you.

  20. Pat

    So what kind of punishment are you in favor of enacting for women who kill their unborn children?

  21. jjf

    False witness, Kev?

    “We could be talking about the post office and you’ll pivot to abortion” is my court testimony or my hypothetical situation?

    Saying something you don’t like to hear isn’t “false witness.”
