President Obama Likely to Pick Pro-Abortion Supreme Court Justice After Souter

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Now that pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice David Souter has announced his future retirement in June, speculation turns to President Barack Obama. During the presidential campaign, he made it clear he would only appoint a pro-abortion activist to the high court if given a chance to nominate a new judge.

If anybody is hoping that Obama picks a pro-life judge, don't hold your breath.

I find it odd that pro-life presidents keep getting bamboozled by their choices who turn out to be pro-choice, but liberals always know what they're getting. Maybe Obama will appoint someone he thinks is pro-choice, but then he'll pull a reverse-Souter.
Yep, and there are still people who believe he is pro-life.
For a socialist (READ: a wealthy person who inflicts his views on others and then takes their money), Obama is not very bright. Numbers are needed to build the nanny state he wants and the illegal immigrants working for spoiled wealthy people can't fill that void.
Maybe math was never Obama's strong suit. Or morals.
But Obama is identical to McCain - donchaknow!!!

I think he should show some cunning and appoint Sarah Pallin! After all, her Pro-Life credentials aren't good enough for some Catholics, so she must be a close Pro-Lifer.
Palin isn't even a lawyer so she can't be a judge..

7HolyCats brings up a point my dad always does.  Why bother electing Republican presidents if all of the presidents(with the exception of Clinton) who've appointed judges since Roe v Wade have been Republicans? How come we can never get enough judges to tip it over?

This is correct. The Law School brainwash all the candidates. The probably resolution would be to introduce the vote out rule for the members of the Supreme Court, as it is in case of local judges in many states, but no one wants change.
Obama does, right?
