It's a Free Country is a forum on NPR affiliate WNYC. Contributor Osborne Hazel is a former law clerk and served as an intern for Rep. John Conyers (D-NY). Here is a snip from posted analysis:
If Justice Kennedy sides with Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan, I see both Chief Justice Roberts and Alito also siding with the majority. During their confirmation hearings they both said they were opposed to any “activist” court decisions. Voting to strike down this law, which would exact a large political price on supporters, would be the embodiment of an activist judge. They would be flouting years of precedent and putting the Court directly into the middle of the controversy. Then there is the wild card: Justice Scalia. He lamented how quickly litigants run to court when Congress or the government does something they disapprove of, instead of using the legislative or political process to reverse it themselves.Exactly.
The Catholic Justices on the Court should have recused themselves from this decision in the first place as the Holy Roman Kiddie Diddlers control such a monstrous portion of health care in the US, especially in light of more Vatican wrongdoing.
Right to life, indeed.
