Hume: Claims from the Left that People Will Die and Abortion Will Be Illegal Are Hysterical
BRUCE: "We can guarantee that with the direction of the country now. We have seen what the conservative ideal really means. For analysis of trump’s pick and the confirmation battle, we are joined by fox senior political analyst Brit Hume. Thanks for joining us. The conversation is filled with politics. It’s the drama. It’s angst and another Armageddon. What is your take on this remarkable reaction to a pretty good pick?"
HUME: "It’s remarkable. It’s about what I anticipated because of the fear that the court’s balance would be upset by this choice. Let’s just look at a couple of the issues. Roe v. Wade. If Roe v. Wade were reversed, it would not mean abortion would become illegal. It would mean it would not be guarantees as a constitutional right. It would be up to 50 states to decide whether abortion in their state would be legal or not. I would not think that everyone would have to fear that the legislators across the country would decide that abortion should be illegal. If they did, it would be the democratic process deciding the issue. What are they afraid of? They are afraid because of the right to gay marriage and right to abortion have been created by the courts. They found them lurking in the constitutional unnoticed and established them as law. The fact is if these rights were to fall way the way side of constitutional rights it’s up to the democratic processes to accept them or re-establish them or not. It seems that the idea that people will die and abortion will become illegal everywhere is hysterical does overstated to defeat this nominee."
