Anti-Choice Position Goes Against Majority

November 12, 2002

"Liberals Bracing for Quick Judicial Action by Bush" (Nov. 7) quotes Kate Michelman, head of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, as saying, "The president has made no secret of the fact that one of his goals in campaigning for Republican anti-choice senators around the country was to gain control of the Judiciary Committee so that he could succeed in appointing conservative judicial activists -- from the Supreme Court to the district courts."

If these appointments are confirmed, we will not have a Supreme Court but a pope and a council of bishops. The right of a woman to choose has been upheld by the Supreme Court and a majority of the American people. The anti-choice position is primarily a religious one. A religious minority does not have the right to impose its will on a secular majority.
