Antonin Scalia

Former SCOTUS Justice

Tier 4. Personhood Never

Contrary to popular belief, Antonin Scalia is not pro-life. He believes that the unborn child does not have a right to life, and, whereas our rights come from God, he claims that such a right would have to come from the majority. He also says that he would strike down a law that was the opposite of Roe v. Wade and that, by his judicial philosophy, if he had been a judge in Germany, he would have been prosecuted in Nuremberg.

Antonin Scalia is often held up as the model of what a conservative judge ought to be when it comes to interpreting the constitution. But, as is clear, Scalia is not an exceptional judge. He rejects the truth that rights do not come from the people but from God. He therefore rejects the right to life of the unborn child and, by hubris, believes that he has the authority to determine when and how an unborn child can be killed. By claiming that the 5th and 14th amendments protect only "walking-around persons" is immoral and, on a matter of such grave significance, is grotesque in thoughtlessness and superficiality. He signed on to the brutally wicked PBA opinion which states: "The medical profession [abortionists] may find different and less shocking methods to abort the fetus..." and is a virtual late-term abortion manual. Antonin Scalia is not the model of a good judge and cannot be trusted.
