Double Standard - Kerry on Supreme Court Nominations
John Kerry's own website states that he would never nominate a pro-life judge.
John Kerry believes that women have the right to control their own bodies, their own lives, and their own destinies. He believes that the Constitution protects their right to choose and to make their own decisions in consultation with their doctor, their conscience, and their God. He will defend this right as President. He recently announced he will support only pro-choice judges to the Supreme Court. Kerry also believes that we should promote family planning and health plans should assure women contraceptive coverage.
Haven’t Democrats blocked Bush judicial appointments to lower courts because they believe
them to be pro-life, and for no other reason? Yet none of the Bush nominees have made judgments in the past that would go against current laws which protect a woman’s “right to choose”. Can you imagine the uproar that would occur if Bush claimed only pro-life judges would be considered for the Supreme Court? We would never hear the end of it. This should be front page news. I guess we all understand why it isn’t. Democrats are allowed to have an agenda, and republicans can’t even hint at one.
