    A group that promotes constitutionalist judicial nominees warns that the top priority of a Barack Obama Supreme Court would be to require taxpayers to fund unlimited abortion rights.

    Curt Levey, executive director of the Committee for Justice, says given Obama's opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, the nation's highest court under an Obama administration would likely reverse the federal ban on partial-birth abortion. According to Levey, two of the top ten priorities of an Obama Supreme Court would be to find that there is a constitutional right to taxpayer-funded abortions, and to order all 50 states to "bless" homosexual "marriage."

    "Ten Commandments would be removed all over the place. 'Under God' would be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. The death penalty would be banned," says Levey. "There'd probably be constitutional rights to all sorts of new things like human cloning and physician-assisted suicide. Racial preferences would proliferate."

    Good post.

    Here is a list of ten things that might change from a blog linked in your source.

    #4 - would not really bother me - it wasn't added till the 50s anyway.
    #2 - I think would be that civil unions, instead of marriages, would have to be acknowledged. I am not sure how I feel about two adults forming a legal personal partnership.
    #10 - I am not sure that this would be true, or that it is based merely on the fact that Obama is black.

    All the rest I would agree are serious issues that need addressed. #1 is of particular concern. I can see the expansion of 'abortion rights' to include killing those children who happen to survive a uterine murder attempt.

    In addition to the above, say goodbye to your gun rights. I know some don't really care about gun rights (maybe because they don't own one, which is fine), but the last step towards tyranny is to disarm its citizens. And people think Bush is a tyrant. They haven't seen nothin' yet.
