    She admitted that the quote that you cite was a mistake, that she regretted saying it and that she was wrong so why the "hellh0und" are you quoting her out of context without the complete story?

    We all know why you did it - your transparency is crystal clear.
    Because when you watch her say it, then watch her laugh, the watch her facetiously apologize you know it's what she really thinks and she didn't say it accidentally she just accidentally said it on tape.

    Don't you believe that privacy is an unenumerated constitutional right?

    I await RightinNYC's comments. He knows better than anybody here, most of this judicial stuff.
    She can't have judicial competence when it's clear she doesn't understand her job though she does understand that she should at least aim to hide the fact that her goal is to make policy.

    In the absence of a "compelling state interest", yes, but Pro-Life argues that there is in fact such a "compelling state interest".

    Besides, my comment was about "bench legislation" in general. For example, Roe v Wade was not legislating from the bench. It upheld the unenumerated constitutional right to privacy.

    I'd like to see more of our unenumerated rights - drug use, prostitution, suicide, assisted suicide, gambling, etc - protected in similar fashion.
    Please, enlighten us to what other "rights" you wish to wave your magic wand and magically "invent" by using the big fancy word of unenumerated. Why not just be forthright and honest and say "**** I made up because that's what I want to be in there so therefore it is".

    Damn straight, when's the Judge going to come in that finally actually advocates the unquestionable existance of the unenumerated right of me being made supreme ruler of the U.S. and also my right to recieve a government stipend of $100,000 a month. I love me some unenumerated rights.

    Oh, so who creates the laws needs to represent the US as a whole, but those who enforce those laws do not?

    Sorry, Jerry, but the thought of MEN MEN MEN deciding what I am allowed to do with my own body makes me sick.
