Architect of Roe v. Wade Up For Confirmation for 9th Circuit
Andrew David Hurwitz, is President Obama nominee to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The vote may come as soon as Monday morning!
Here are a few problems with Hurwitz:
1.) Hurwitz Acted as a Key Author of Abortion Court Decisions that Were Eventually Relied Upon by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade
2.) Hurwitz’s Continued Celebration of Roe Places Him Far Outside the Mainstream Even Among Liberal Legal Experts
3.) Hurwitz Continues to Take Pride in His Role Crafting the Case That Had “’Crucial Influence’ on Both the Outcome and the Reasoning in Roe [v. Wade]”
4.) Hurwitz Refused to Answer the Questions of Senators Grassley and Sessions Regarding His Role in The Pro Abortion Decision, Even Though He Previously Wrote About and Praised It
5.) Hurwitz Celebrates His Role in the Supreme Court’s Activist Decision Striking Down Arizona’s Death Penalty Scheme as the Best Episode of His Private Practice
6.) Hurwitz Would Side With Activist Judges, Even When In Conflict with The Constitution
7.) Hurwitz Asserts that Constitutional Rights – Such as the Right to Privacy – can be Created by Judges
