He just got sworn in. This is the very reason I’ve never voted for a Democrat for president. I want a pro-life Supreme Court that will, eventually, eviscerate that non-textual free-wheeling judicial creation that is known as Roe v. Wade. Deo gratias!

Lets be a bit cautious before we run too many victory laps over the Kavanaugh confirmation. Sure, better him than to have a Democrat in that position, but we have been burned before with Republican Supreme Court appointees...
---Like Nixon=appointed Harry Blackmun, who authored the treacherous ROE v WADE decision
---Like Anthony Kennedy and Sandra Day O'Connor, who saved ROE nearly 20 years later, and Kennedy later found a "right" to same-sex marriage
---Like John Roberts, who saved Obamacare 5 or 6 years ago

Kavanaugh also went to (what seems to be) a fairly liberal Jesuit school, and his Archdiocese---Washington---well, we know about the troubles of Cardinal you know who...

And in terms of ROE being overturned and the abortion matter sent back to the states, it isn't likely Chief Justice John Roberts wants to make a ruling on that based on a 5-4 vote. More likely that overtly overturning Roe, the court may "nibble away" at it---maybe for instance gradually upholding restrictions earlier than the old 24 weeks---maybe 20, then 15, then 12. But that would take time---not like we can all say "Halleujah" within a year and all will be well.

Speaking of abortion---there was a piece on the Diocese of Lincoln website reviewing the number of abortions in Nebraska in 1997. A study found that an astronomical 78 percent of women in that state who had abortions that year were not married---only 14 percent were married (unclear about the other 8 percent). Of course, being married does not justify abortion, but basically 5 out of every 6 abortions in this state are performed on women who have been engaged in sexual activity outside of marriage...do we ever here the pro-choice side urge women not to engage in such activity, and that the abortion rate would drop substantially if women (and men) followed traditional Christian teachings on sex? Well no, because that would cut into the profits of Planned Parenthood when it comes to abortion and birth control---the group who thinks pregnancy is a disease...
