Under questioning by Dianne Feinstein, Sessions’ ‘antipathy to a woman’s right to choose was evident.

Dianne Feinstein (the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee), said, “You have referred to Roe v. Wade as, quote, one of the worst, colossally erroneous Supreme Court decisions of all time, end quote. Is that still your view?”

Sessions replied, “It is. It violated the Constitution, and really attempted to set policy and not follow law.”

The Supreme Court decide it does not violate the Constitution, so he is wrong.

    Uh, Sorry dude.
    The SCOTUS decides what is and is not constitutional, not a socially-regressive wannabe AG.

    • Willys41

      Yeah that’s a problem with all right-wing extremists. They think they’re above the law and therefore they determine what’s “constitutional.”

      • Lyndia

        Yes, what is constitutional, according to their religion.

        • RightThinkingOne

          Donald J. Trump, president in a little over a week, pledged to nominate justices who adhere to Original Understanding. If they do, it means that they should be able to overturn Roe v. Wade.

          • Willys41

            If they adhere to “original understanding,” then say goodbye to your “right to privacy,” because that ain’t in the constitution. It was inferred by supreme court decisions. Oh, and by the way, the Roberts pro-gun decision in DC v Heller goes away too because that ain’t “original” either.

            • RightThinkingOne

              Yes. They found it through “penumbras” and “emanations.” What a joke that was.

          • Lyndia

            I know you are hoping that will happen. However, I would like for you to explain something to me. You people go CRAZY about abortion, (which is none of your damn business,) but when a child is killed via beatings, starvation, hanging, being molested, throat cut, being thrown out of windows, strangling, stomped, dismembered, scalding, thrown up against walls, left outside in pig pens, stabbed, left in hot/cold vehicles, etc. and I NEVER HEAR A WORD about those living, breathing, walking, talking, babies/children. WHY? Why are you concerned about a women’s womb and not concerned about children, that die in horrific manners? Why aren’t you enacting laws, that would make a death of a child, an automatic life sentence? Many of the murders get out and kill again.

            • RightThinkingOne

              Yes. I hope it gets returned to the states because that is where – constitutionally and sensibly – it should be. Some states will allow unborn baby killing, and a few will not. Before this hideous Roe and Doe decisions, most states actually DID allow unborn baby killing, but there were stipulations.

              The problem with the Pro-Death radical position with the Supreme Court was that it was DOOMED to cause conflict and friction. When things are put into the hands of legislatures, then the people debate, discuss, try to convince. In the hands of the court, the people have no input and are TOLD what will happen.

      • RightThinkingOne

        Roe and Doe are actually unconstitutional.

        • Willys41

          Wrong.

          • RightThinkingOne

            I know the law, but the Roe decision was unconstitutional, of course.

        • SteveD

          Wrong. The Supreme Court found that there is a constitutional right to privacy that LIMITS the extent to which government can interfere with your liberty.

          • RightThinkingOne

            Wrong again! I know what the Court decided, so don’t bore me with that. You do not know much of anything about the decision, otherwise you would have been able to refer to the key words: “Penumbras” and “emanations.”

            You couldn’t. Possibly you will do a little google search now, and look it up. But I have conclusively demonstrated that you do not know much of anything about Roe. You parrot what you have been told to think and say.

            • SteveD

              Wrong. The Supreme Court found that there is a constitutional right to privacy that LIMITS the extent to which government can interfere with your liberty.

              • RightThinkingOne

                Continued from case ONE:
                And they added that the decision “in no way interferes with a State’s proper regulation of sexual promiscuity or misconduct.” And marriage was NEVER considered in American law or tradition to include a “right” to abortion, never mind not a “right” to adultery or infanticide. In fact, in this case, Justice Brennan stated that “I take it abortion involves killing a life in being.” AND, a person can be prosecuted for MURDER if he attacks a pregnant woman and it results in her unborn baby dying.

                Got it? Ready for #2? HUH?

              • RightThinkingOne

                CASE #2 (TWO!)

                Eisenstdt v. Baird, 1971, dealt with the limit of sales of contraceptives to married people in Massachusetts. The justices invalidated that law. It referred to the government not intruding on individuals. But it did not refer to “privacy.” It was based on the Equal Protection clause, not privacy.

                Ready for the next one? Are you? Eh?

              • RightThinkingOne

                3. United States v. Vuitch, 1971, dealt with the baby-killer Vuitch who was sued numerous times for killing unborn babies when the health of the mother obviously did not deem it necessary. The baby-killer lost the case, but it had the deleterious effect of broadening the idea of the “health of the mother.” (15 years later, this murderer was put out of business by a malpractice suit.)

                CONCLUSION IN THE NEXT ONE. READY, PAL?

              • RightThinkingOne

                Two of the most heinous parts of the Roe decision was that:

                1. The justices incorrectly interpreted “liberty” to include a “right to privacy” and that unborn baby-killing is part of this “right to privacy.”

                2. The Court held that the “unborn” are not included with other “persons” protected by the Constitution: “The word ‘persons,’ as used in the 14th Amendment, does not include the unborn.”

              • RightThinkingOne

                Interesting that, according to Left-wingers, we may not spank our own children in “the privacy” of our own homes, but as long as they are unborn or recently born with deformities, we are free to kill them.

    • RightThinkingOne

      A decision can be overturned.

  • Larry Schmitt

    This is the kind of sh!t we’ll have do deal with when he is AG.

    • whatthe46

      another GOP asshole who doesn’t give a damn about the constitution, let alone our rights. and this just happened, get this:

    For over 40 years Roe vs Wade it has been the law of the land, get with the program or get out

  • Willys41

    Anything that doesn’t support the Old South of the slave states confederacy is “unconstitutional” when you ask right-wing racist scum.

  • Angelo_Frank

    Sessions is thus announcing he will not enforce the law when these red states come up with unconstitutional draconian anti-abortion laws.

    • StoneyCurtisll

      Bingo~!

  • StoneyCurtisll

    Oh hell….
    here we go back to the “good ole days” when women got an abortion in a back ally…
    And Negros knew their place…
    If this old racist mother f-er is appointed, brace yourself for a giant leap backwards in time…

  • RightThinkingOne

    For Liberals those who want to protect life are “imposing their views” on everyone. It is the pro-death, the pro-abortion people who do the imposing. When the Supreme Court contradicts the Western moral tradition and the laws of the 50 states, according to Liberals, anything other than complete unanimity of assent indicates “divisiveness.”

    • arc99

      It is the job of the SCOTUS to contradict Western moral tradition and the laws of the 50 states when that tradition and laws violate the US Constitution.

      Brown v Board of Education as a primary example.

      No one is pro abortion. Supporting a woman’s right to decide for herself is not “pro abortion”. Anyone who thinks so is an idiot. If someone recognizes that a neo Nazi or Klansman has the exact same first amendment rights as they do, it does not make them pro Klan, it makes them pro first amendment. Interesting that pro forced birth zealots are unable to understand that fundamental principle.

      Your post is uninformed nonsense.

      • RightThinkingOne

        But it does not violate the Constitution, of course. But it does violate decency, and it breaks the child-parent bond, the one for children actually alive.

      • RightThinkingOne

        “Right?” If one colludes in a murder, one has a “right” not only to do that, but to carry it out?

  • RightThinkingOne

    These Roe and Doe decisions put the US as 1 of only 4 (FOUR) nations that allows the killing of the unborn for ANY reason after viability. With those 3 (besides ourselves), we are in the company of North Korea and China.

    • Lyndia

      What don’t you mind your own business? What ever decision a woman makes, is between her and her doctor. YOU have no role in that. You are talking about after viability, but most women have abortions, prior to then. Additionally, has it ever occurred to you that babies, as young as 9, get pregnant, too? Teenagers get pregnant. Should babies and CHILDREN be FORCED TO HAVE A BABY? I say, hell to the no. Many of these pregnancies, are the result of incest or rape, especially between the ages of 9-12. Once again, mind your business and stay out of females wombs. You will be a much happier person if you do.

      • RightThinkingOne

        No, it is among her, the ABORTIONIST, and the unborn baby. And what most Pro-Death advocates do not know is that the “woman’s doctor” rarely kills the unborn baby: She is sent to an ABORTIONIST whom she meets for the first time in the room where the developing human being is killed.

        • fahvel

          you sick minded fool, you babble within your limited vocabulary and no caring person here is even grinning – go away!

          • RightThinkingOne

            True: Pro-Death advocates will use your type of tactics.

    • arc99

      As is usually the case with right wingers, you have no idea what you are talking about.

      Israel provides abortion on demand 100% funded by the government. That would be the same Israel which receives more American foreign aid than any other country. Israel funds abortion on demand thanks in part to your tax dollars. You are ignorant on the topic and your tax dollars at least indirectly fund free abortion on demand in a foreign country. Deal with it right winger….

      http://www.timesofisrael.com/israels-abortion-law-now-among-worlds-most-liberal/

      Israel’s abortion law now among world’s most liberalDespite its conservative leanings, government approves free pregnancy termination for nearly all women, and it barely causes a ripple
      ,,,,
      ,,,,
      With the newly amended health care package, however, funding will now be available for more than 6,000 additional women seeking to terminate their pregnancies, at the cost at some NIS 16 million ($4.6 million). No medical reason for the abortion is required.

      • RightThinkingOne

        It does not matter if another country’s government takes money from working people to pay for the irresponsible people who want the results of their pleasure to be destroyed so it – a human life – will not become an “inconvenience.”

    • arc99

      Educate yourself

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Canada

      Abortion in Canada is legal at all stages of pregnancy[1] and is governed by the Canada Health Act.[2] While some non-legal obstacles exist, Canada is one of only a few nations with no legal restrictions on abortion.[3][4] Regulations and accessibility vary between provinces.[5]

      • RightThinkingOne

        Yes. That was the 4th nation. The other two that kill after viability with impunity are North Korea and China. Some company we keep, eh? Just what the Pro-Death advocates want!

    • SCOTUS Roe V Wade, etc gives women a mere 10 weeks privacy to decide, or up to 26 weeks viability with her Dr’s consent. Post viability Physicians choices are rare.

      The ACA mandates prenatal coverage, shrinking U.S. infant mortality to new lows. Meanwhile 4+ natural miscarriages precede each live human birth.

      The U.S. rate of 6.1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births masks considerable state-level variation. If Alabama were a country, its rate of 8.7 infant deaths per 1,000 would place it slightly behind Lebanon in the world rankings.Sep 29, 2014. The ACA began coverage in 2014. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/749b3f9452aafd62638958fbc79adad8295e85c163c5d6417305fc4ba09de7ad.png

      • RightThinkingOne

        You left out Doe which ran basically concurrently. It allows a woman to destroy the human life, the innocent baby, growing and developing insider of her, AT ANY TIME. THAT INCLUDES “VIABILITY” AND AFTER!! That is what the Doe decision added but few people of the United States know this hideous truth. It is under the guise of the “health” of the mother, and that can include the “mental health” that means basically anything.

        In short, we are one of only four nations – including the Leftist North Korea and China – that allow such a hideous and malevolent evil.

        • You’re Constitutionally illiterate and out of your mind, Focus on USA’s 5.8/1000 live birth infant mortality deaths, brought down by the ACA from Sept. 2014’s 6.1 IM deaths, per 1000 live births.

          • RightThinkingOne

            What does that have to do with killing the innocent unborn with impunity?

            • Your delusional disorder is treatable as well as your ignorance e.g.

              “You’re Constitutionally illiterate and out of your mind, Focus on USA’s 5.8/1000 live birth infant mortality deaths, brought down by the ACA”.

              • RightThinkingOne

                It is about the killing of the innocent unborn.

                • Bunya

                  Spare me your feign indignation. You had nothing to say when we were slaughtering Iraqi citizens without impunity, but give a woman the right to choose, and you misogynists go all ballistic.
                  .
                  Instead of coming here, bitchin’ and moanin’, maybe you should do something about it. And I don’t mean KILLING DOCTORS AND BLOWING UP CLINICS. I know death and destruction is the only option you think you have, but don’t worry. Pence will be the VP and he’ll jackboot those women real quick, and you can rest comfortably that women, once again, have been given the death sentence by the GOP god.

                  • RightThinkingOne

                    False comparison. If you decide to go that route, let’s have a more direct comparison with eugenics and your comrades.

                    • Bunya

                      Okay. Start. List your FACTS. For example, if you want to believe that PP is selling baby parts, list your FACTS. If you think they’re killing babies, list your FACTS.

                    • RightThinkingOne

                      I did not reference the heinous idea about selling baby parts, of course. I am just referring to the fact that PP is an abortion factory.

                    • whatthe46

                      the dumb troll continues to speak. will you ever just STFU already!? PP isn’t an abortion factory. but, you already knew that, you just adore your ignorance and stupidity.

                      so how many unwanted children have you adopted or fostered? hell, actually i hope none. because you are one racist twisted, disgusting inbred idiot.

                    • RightThinkingOne

                      Americans are outraged about the selling of baby body parts with abortion factories (Planned Parenthood). So, the Pro-Death Left contradicts itself: This is supposedly something heinous, but to acknowledge that, one must acknowledge the value of the life that was destroyed. Or conversely, if they say that the body parts are useful, they must then claim that they are willing to decide that a human being is worth killing.

                    • RightThinkingOne

                      Abortion is the devaluation of human life: It denies life to certain categories of humans. In 1992, Governor Casey of Pennsylvania, pro-life Democrat, was denied the right to speak at the national convention. He was the defendant in the Supreme Court case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey in which he was sued for signing a law which required a 24-hour waiting period and parent consent for minors for an abortion. This lawsuit was a direct threat to the Roe v. Wade decision.

                    • RightThinkingOne

                      The Pro-Death faction has a love affair with Planned Parenthood. They claim that it provides all sorts of services for women, and that abortion is only a minor one. However, in 2012, the year that this organization broke its own record of administering abortions with one-third of a million of them (333,964) by this agency, it provided only 2,300 adoption referrals and fewer than 30,000 prenatal services.

                    • Bunya

                      So what? Abortion is legal. Killing doctors and bombing clinics, isn’t.

                  until then, I suggest that you open your mind to the fact that your opinions combined with a lack of a uterus, provides only your ability to display both your self-centered arrogance and cold blissful ignorance at the same time. Well done, you must be proud.

                  • RightThinkingOne

                    No, you are simply using an excuse to destroy the lives of the innocent unborn with impunity. And for what? Convenience.

                    • RightThinkingOne

                      Not sensible or logical: That means – if one applies YOUR reasoning, YOUR assertion – if one does not belong to a group in question, that person’s opinion can be summarily discarded, ignored.

                      That would mean, for example, that no heterosexuals can voice any opinion, in any direction, about homosexual marriage, hate crimes, etc. Only homosexuals should decide everything. It would mean that only teachers – not parents, not legislators, not construction workers – can make any decisions about education.

                      See? Do you understand now?

                      On top of that, by excluding people in such a way, you have denied a common humanity. Thus your intolerance and narrowness has been demonstrated.

    And number one on the republican agenda (as it has been since 1973) is to overturn Roe v. Wade. But nothing ever happens. I guess it just give the GOP something to whine about, until they start another war, or tank the economy, or do away with SCHIP, or bad mouth Obama, etc., etc.

    • RightThinkingOne

      It is not “demonizing” women. It is saving the lives of the innocent unborn, of course. And the prosecutions in the history of this evil in the United States has focuses on two culprits:
      1. The abortionist.
      2. Those who seek an abortion.

      Not on the woman having her innocent unborn child destroyed.

      • Bunya

        Interesting how you folks DEMAND that women give birth, but when she needs help from the government supporting the child, you think she becomes nothing more than welfare queen. Funny how you think the right to life of the “innocent unborn” loses value once the fetus becomes a baby.

        • RightThinkingOne

          No, it is the opposite, as I have cogently pointed out and explained. No need to break it down and simplify it even more.

  • Trumpty Dumpty

    I am a believer that an unborn child is living, able to sense its surroundings, and can communicate. All of this can be proven scientifically. It is a living being with rights after a certain amount of time. When does that moment take place? I don’t know, but, with the technology we have today, my belief is that an abortion should not take place beyond 1 month after conception.

    • Sydney

      So, essentially a ban since most women may not even be aware of the pregnancy.

    • RightThinkingOne

      It is an evil that should never take place, except under extreme circumstances. Anyway, it should be left up to the states, not to activist justices who force their ideology on the people through the idea that there are “penumbras” and “emanations” that they have discovered in the Constitution that means a woman can CONSPIRE with her abortionist to snuff out human life.

    • fahvel

      belief in a zygote is as good as a belief in an invisible controlling bearded indifferent godhead – and belief is valueless though it does comfort the ignorant.

  • Hirightnow

    Regardless of any fantasies you might harbor, I must ask you why you care about what happens when another person becomes pregnant?
    What difference does it make to you if some cells are removed from a woman’s body, any more than if a larger collection of cells are removed from society for perceived “crimes”?
    How “Pro-Life” will you be, when confronted either by your God or your own conscience?

    • RightThinkingOne

      I will apply YOUR “reasoning” here. Your first sentence implies (but deny it) that “if it does not directly affect me, I have no case, I should not care or give an opinion.”

      Well, if a man down the street is beating his wife, it does not affect me as long as I do not hear the screams. If a pervert in the next town is molesting children, it will not bother me personally, so I should not get upset or care, either.

      • Hirightnow

        Difference being that your examples involve actual thinking, feeling persons.
        You attribute these qualities to a zygote that science has proven time and time again does not have them.

        • RightThinkingOne

          Interesting that whacked-out animal rights activists can have laws passed to arrest someone who destroys an eagle’s egg.

          Do you realize what that means? Of course you don’t….. It means that the full-grown eagle is so highly valued that to destroy its very inception, its beginnings would be considered criminal.

          But to the Pro-Death advocates, human life is… well… “different.”

          • Hirightnow

            One more try….

            • RightThinkingOne

              No need. I already answered, perfectly clearly. Pro-Death people dehumanize, so they have severe difficulty with the concept.
