Supreme Court Justice Samuel blasted back at foreign leaders who recently criticized the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down Roe vs. Wade.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito slammed foreign leaders who attacked the Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.…“I’ve had some second thoughts over the last few weeks, since I had the honor this [Supreme Court] term of writing the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders, who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law,” he said, eliciting a few laughs from the audience. “One of these was former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But he paid the price,” Alito said, as the audience broke into laughter and applause. “Post hoc ergo propter hoc, right?” Alito joked.
“But others are still in office,” he continued. “[French] President [Emmanuel] Macron, and [Canadian] Prime Minister [Justin] Trudeau, I believe, are two. But what really wounded me, what really wounded me, was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations, and seemed to compare the decision whose name may not be spoken with the Russian attack on Ukraine.”
Alito, however, took the high road. “Well, despite this temptation, I’m not gonna talk about cases from other countries,” he said. “All I’m gonna say is that, ultimately, if we are going to win the battle to protect religious freedom in an increasingly secular society, we will need more than positive law.”
Alito author the landmark Dobbs decision which struck down the court’s previous abortion ruling in Roe vs. Wade.
