Quote of the Day
"It's sad to consider that huge numbers of Americans believe their freedoms hinge on any one individual, Supreme Court justice or not. Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, but not because the Supreme Court presumed to legalize abortion rather than ban it. Roe was wrongly decided because abortion simply is not a constitutional issue. There is not a word in the text of that document, nor in any of its amendments, that conceivably addresses abortion.... Under the 9th and 10 amendments, all authority over matters not specifically addressed in the Constitution remains with state legislatures... So while Roe v. Wade is invalid, a federal law banning abortion across all 50 states would be equally invalid" -- Rep. Ron Paul of Texas in his weekly newspaper column
