Richard Honaker is No Good

Richard Honaker, President Bush's latest radical nominee to the federal bench, is far outside the US mainstream when it comes to reproductive rights and freedoms. He's devoted a good chunk of his career to fighting to deny women access to safe, legal reproductive-health services. He tried and failed to pass a state law banning abortion in Wyoming while serving in the Wyoming House of Reps--three times! He's publicly stated that abortion is "wrong, and no one should have the right to do what is wrong." No stare decisis for him--and certainly no open mind either.

Honaker seems much more activist than jurist given his public dismissals of the decisions of US District Court judges as unimportant and forgettable, an extremely troubling position, especially when held by a man on the south side of sixty nominated for a lifetime appointment to the District Court.

I think abortion is wrong too, but mandating morality is a VERY slippery sloape. If we make it illegal, people will get dangerous back alley abortions. I still think abortions should remain legal and safe.
