Alito has "great respect" for Roe v. Wade - and wants to overturn it


Although Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito recently told senators that he has "great respect" for Roe v. Wade, in 1985 he wrote that he was proud of helping the Reagan administration argue that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." He also bragged that he helped "to advance legal positions in which I personally believe very strongly."

"I am particularly proud of my contributions in recent cases in which the government argued that racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion," he said.

Obviously, the only thing Alito has "great respect" for is his own racist, sexist, fundamentalist ideology.
