Conservatives Are Livid, Gorsuch Accepts Pro Choice Laws

On day three of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing, he was asked by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) if he accepts the landmark Supreme Court case establishing a right to abortion “as the law of the land.”

“Do you accept that?” Durbin asked.

“I accept the law of the land, senator, yes,” Gorsuch replied.

“As the book explains, the Supreme Court of the United States has held in Roe v. Wade that a fetus is not a person for purposes of the 14th Amendment and the book explains that,” Gorsuch answered.

Many liberal groups have assumed that he would be hostile to continued access to abortion rights because of a book he authored on euthanasia.

In “The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia,” Gorsuch wrote, “The intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.”

Gorsuch told members of the committee that during an interview with Trump, he never asked him to overturn Roe v. Wade, but had he done so Gorsuch would have walked away.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked:“In that interview did he ever ask you to overrule Roe v. Wade?”

Gorsuch said no, then Graham went on to ask what he would have done if Trump had asked that question.

“Senator, I would have walked out the door,” Gorsuch replied. “It’s not what judges do. I don’t do it at that end of Pennsylvania Avenue and they shouldn’t do it at this end either, respectfully.”
