Pro-lifer for Rudy

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2007 at 5:56 AM

Here's an interesting op-ed in the New York Times by an anti-abortion Catholic theological student who thinks Rudy Giuliani, though personally pro-choice, is a better choice for pro-lifers than declared abortion opponents such as Mike Huckabee.

Only a constitutionalist who supports abortion rights can create an anti-Roe majority by explaining that the end of Roe means letting the people decide, state by state, about abortion.

Mr. Giuliani’s ambivalence about the end of Roe is consistent with his belief that judges should not seek to achieve political ends. This is a judicial philosophy that pro-lifers should applaud, not condemn. It is, after all, the position consistently articulated by the pro-life movement’s favorite Supreme Court justices: John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia.
