Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito wrote in a 1985 letter that that he found no right to abortion in Constitution. He also stated that he was proud to have worked in the Justice Department where he was fighting for a limited judiciary and against abortion.
For this, abortion rights extremist and Delaware Democrat Sen. Joe Biden is threatening to filibuster his nomination. "I think he's got a lot of explaining to do," Biden was quoted as saying in a LifeNews article.
Biden and the Senate's clan of abortion supporters are unlikely to succeed should they attempt to block a vote on Alito's nomination.
...most of the members of the group of 14 Republican and Democratic lawmakers who participated in a filibuster compromise earlier this year say they like Alito or don't plan to filibuster.Yes, Senate Republicans appear to have both the will and the power (votes) to squash a filibuster via the nuclear option. However, as abortion rights activists begin their smear campaign of distortion and fear mongering it remains important to contact your representatives in support of Alito. Every nomination deserves and up or down vote!
