Boy, talking about a double standard in the confirmation process by the Democrats in Congress. In 1993, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was nominated by Bill Clinton and confirmed by a vote of 97 to 3. Ginsberg served the ACLU on its national board and was on record for the following: She was against separate prisons for men and women, said there should be a constitutional right for polygamy, and was radically pro-choice. Yet, out of respect for the office of the president and the constitutional process, she was supported by very conservative senators.
President Bush pledged in the 2004 election campaign that if elected, he would nominate someone who would interpret the law and not legislate from the bench. Roberts has been endorsed by the following: Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Tony Perkins of the American Family Association, Jay Sekulow of American Center for Law and Justice, and Dr. James Kennedy of Center for Reclaiming America. He is opposed by NARAL Pro-Choice Ameria, the ACLU, the National Abortion Federation, and ACT UP.
