    When it leaked out some 24 years ago around about
    this time , there was a firestorm but Reagan stuck to his guns and she has served admirable and with wisdom being the swing vote on a lot of cases.

    I think we need another one like her.

    Yes, we need someone else to take our rights away as homeowners and hand our homes over to hotel developers and shopping malls for more urban sprawl.

    But even more important, we need someone else to support stabbing unborn babies at the base of their skulls and then sucking out their brains bit by bit so it won't be an "undue burden" on the abortionist or those getting an abortion. She's a real champ, all right.

    LE, O'Connor was AGAINST the eminent domain decision, and vehemently so. And when did she ever even have a vote on partial birth abortion. It has not come up before the court.

    I am not her biggest fan, but be fair.

    The fact that the political left lauds her is proof that she betrayed her friends. She is responsible for the legalization of sodomy. Reagan was warned by conservatives not to appoint her but he did not listen. He should have. There is no doubt that she favors abortion now. A consortium should form to take her family ranch to build something more economically vital.

    She lied about abortion to get appointed by conservatives and afterwards became pro abortion.

    She was a major disapointment who supported the awfull practice of abortion. Bush should be more careful than previous Republican Presidents who put such leftwingers as Kennedy, Souter and of course O'Connor.

    Thank you Sandy for finally doing the honorable thing and leaving so that maybe a real conservative can be appointed.

    LE, any conservative politician would be happy to help you...all in the name of capitalistic progress. [​IMG] Who cares if it costs you your home eh?

    I know here in Windsor, some land was expropriated almost twenty years ago for a hockey arena. People lost their homes. We lost some nice old buildings...and an arcade. :( for what? We are STILL waiting for the arena. :(

    Lets try this again perhaps parse the question
    differently.

    Thank you Justice O'Connor for your 24 year cumulative service and your honorable desire to care for your husband who has dementia/Alzheimer's.

    I think the scales on Sandy weigh more on the good
    over her 24 year cumulative service.

    That is where the Democrats are wrong.

    Her evil outweighs her good. She doublecrossed her party. I haven't heard one Republican say a nice word about her.

    Her major decision is not being mentioned by the Democrats. It was to legalize sodomy for the first time in American history. May the bitterness of that decision follow her until she admits that she is wrong.

    One final thought, the reason that the Democrat bosses (not the rank and file) are lauding this disasterous woman has to do with who pays the bills in the Democrat Party. They really look silly because they never say anything nice about any other Republican. That just shows you how pointless the gay and lesbian political program is. It's all about them. We'll hear the same talk when Barney Frank retires.

    CMG,

    You have to understand that abortion and sodomy are no big deal to liberals. They actually embrace that.

    While I find sodomy reprehensible, I also recognize that the government has no business peeking into the bedrooms of its citizens.

    MP,

    What are your thoughts about the American Holocaust of the unborn, which Connor happily supported with her decisions?

    Joseph,

    I would say that Justice O'Connor did not "happily" support abortion (which you call an "American Holocaust", loading your question with inflammatory rhetoric). She has been seen as taking a moderate stance on abortion, and although she has stated that Rowe v. Wade was a questionable decision, she declined to support overtuning it. In the case of Webster vs. Reproductive Health Services, whe was part of the majority in the 5 to 4 decision upholding states' rights on this issue.

    You have asked me this before, and I gave some of my views then. I don't want to derail this thread, but I will elaborate a bit.

    I believe that abortion is far too commonly used as retroactive birth control. Still, many people see shades of gray and circumstances where the option should be available. What I will say is that I find nothing in medicine or scripture that indicates a zygote or early stage fetus is a human being, rather than a potential human being, anymore than an egg or sperm. At some point, the line must be drawn as to when a fetus becomes a baby, and I choose to take a moderately conservative position in that regard. One one end is the belief that at the moment of conception, a human has been created. Others would say not until birth, or total extrauterine viability. I think either of these fall at the fringes, and the right answer is somewhere in between, but early on in pregnancy. I take this stance because I believe that a zygote or clump of cells is most certainly not a human being, but that development does occur rapidly after that. From what I have read about it, the macabre practice of "partial birth abortion" is horrific. I don't know when such a procedure would have a legitimate use, but I am not a doctor. My first impression of it though is that it should not occur.

    That said, I also believe in cases where a pregnant woman's own life is at stake, the life of the mother trumps the life of the fetus in those circumstances where it is one or the other.

    This is not a simple issue, and I think government should tread carefully in personal medical issues involving patients and their physicians.

    I realize the passion that many others hold, and I certainly understand the concerns. I just disagree. I don't believe this makes me "pro-abortion", as I am opposed to it in most circumstances. However, I don't view this issue in such absolute terms as many who see this as the only issue on which they vote.

    I also am very pro-life for our children AFTER birth as well as before. Children need health care coverage, food, clothing and love. They also don't need to be sent to needless wars when they are barely old enough to vote.

    I totally agree. Thankfully there has only been one needless war that United States of America troops have been sent to and that was when the Yankees invaded the Confederate States of America.

    Once the egg is fertilized, human life begins.

    It's that simple.

    The murder of 40,000,000 unborn, 13,000,000 unborn blacks, is not only a holocaust but it is an act of genocide also.

    Furthermore, the states have every right to outlaw sodomy if they wish no matter what Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, and Canada do. Mrs. O'Connor has a reprobate mind. I think that it is a mercy from God that she resigned and I would not want to be in her fancy shoes on judgment day nor would I want to be handcuffed to her when she dies as I have no idea which way she is going and I don't want to take any chances. To me she is just another wife of Lot, another pillar of salt.

    If it were that simple Church Mouse, there would be no debate. This would not even be an issue in our political discourse.

    Actually, it is that simple, MP. It's just that fallen man tends to not want to accept the truth.
