"In plain English, the Constitution of the United States stipulates that
'No person shall ... be deprived of life ... without due process of law'.
Every one of us is a living, human person, endowed by Almighty God with
an immortal soul, from the moment of fertilization until the moment of

SCALIA SEES NO ABORTION RIGHT IN CONSTITUTION

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, during a luncheon in Buffalo on
Wednesday, re-emphasized his view that women don't have a constitutional
right to an abortion.


His belief flies against the court's majority decision in the 1973 case
Roe v. Wade, which found a constitutionally protected right of privacy
that covers abortion. "My votes in abortion cases have nothing to do
with my pro-life views," Scalia said after his speech at the Hyatt
Regency Buffalo. "They have to do with the text of the Constitution.
And there is nothing, nothing in the Constitution that guarantees the
right to an abortion."

At times flashing a prickly wit, Scalia also criticized the process for
selecting new Supreme Court justices as being highly political today.

And he defended the court's 5-4 decision in the 2000 presidential
election that stopped ballot counting in Florida and handed victory to
George W. Bush.

The recurring theme throughout Scalia's 40-minute speech, and in answers
to audience questions, was the importance of a strict, limited
interpretation of the Constitution.

"It says what it says, and it ought not to be twisted," he said.

Scalia, who is the foremost conservative member of the Supreme Court,
was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.

Scalia devoted the bulk of his speech to the clauses in the First
Amendment that ensure government may not restrict people's religious
practices, nor impose religion on anyone.

Judicial rulings on those clauses -- and the entire Constitution --
must be based on their text, the authors' original intent or
historical practice, he said.

In quoting George Bernard Shaw -- using a phrase later appropriated by
Robert F. Kennedy -- Scalia said those who believe in judicial reshaping
of the Constitution "dream things that never were."

The appropriate way to deal with an issue that demands updating
judicial precedent or the Constitution is by legislative action or,
where appropriate, a constitutional amendment.

"We have an enduring Constitution, not a living one," Scalia said.

After his prepared remarks, Scalia took questions and delved into
several hot-button issues.

He dismissed the idea that abortion is a constitutionally protected
right, but he also said the Constitution doesn't explicitly prohibit
abortions, either. He indicated the issue ultimately should be decided
by a constitutional amendment.

The fight over abortion rights already is heating up, as pro-choice
groups dig in for a battle whenever Bush gets to make a Supreme Court
appointment.

Picking up that theme, Scalia blamed the bitter political fights over
court nominations on the belief that judges are free to rethink the
Constitution.

"Every time you're selecting a Supreme Court justice, you're conducting
a mini-plebiscite on what the Constitution ought to mean," he said.

Scalia defended the court's decision in the 2000 balloting debacle,
saying it properly returned authority in the matter to the Florida
Legislature.

Organizers said 930 tickets were sold for the event, sponsored by the
Chabad House of Western New York and the University at Buffalo Law
School.

Before leaving, Scalia signed autographs under the watchful eye of
several U.S. marshals.

He also signed a pocket copy of the Constitution for UB President
William R. Greiner, who praised Scalia as an "incredible intellect."

NOTE from Columbia Christians for Life:

Contrary to Justice Scalia's view that the Constitution does not
already prohibit abortions is the view that the Fifth Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution does just that.

On September 4, 1999 at the Presidential Nominating Convention of the
Constitution Party (www.constitutionparty.com) in St. Louis, Missouri,
Presidential Nominee Howard Phillips stated in his acceptance speech:

"... on Day One, as President of the United States, I will officially
acknowledge the legal personhood of the unborn child, and appoint - by
recess appointment, if necessary - new United States Attorneys who will
make it their top priority to work with state and local officials in
prosecuting and closing down every abortuary within their jurisdictions."

"In plain English, the Constitution of the United States stipulates that
'No person shall ... be deprived of life ... without due process of law'.
Every one of us is a living, human person, endowed by Almighty God with
an immortal soul, from the moment of fertilization until the moment of
death.  That is why we vigorously oppose euthanasia as well as abortion."

"We will end government-approved abortion and stop subsidies to
organizations which promote abortion.  We will do this - not simply
because this course is required by our platform, but more significantly
because it is required by the laws of God and the Constitution of the
United States."

"We are the party which understands that the question of sovereignty is
the basic issue to be resolved.  Law is always the will of the Sovereign."

"In our platform we recognize that the God Almighty is not only our Creator,
our Lord, and our Savior - He is also our Sovereign."
