Miers and Her Detractors

I found these quotes/reactions from regarding Miers' nomination:

"The burden is on the Bush administration and Harriet Miers to prove to the American people that she will respect and protect our fundamental freedoms, including a woman's right to choose. Miers does not appear to have a public record to assure America's pro-choice majority that she is a moderate in the tradition of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who was the critical swing vote that protected women's reproductive health and freedom." — Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.

"We owe it to the American people to take our time to be sure the nominee will uphold their most basic and fundamental rights. The public demands this from the process, and deserve no less." Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md.

"The president has selected a loyal political ally without a judicial record to sit on the highest court in the land." — Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.

Now I don't know about you, but I sense there is a lot of misinterpretation here on the meaning of "fundamental rights". Last I looked, abortion was NOT a fundamental right. And Americans are NOT pro-choice in majority.

When are the liberals going to understand that life is precious and given to us as a gift? All they are concerned about are their so-called individual rights. And I do mean "individual". They don't care about the lives of others.

Thus brings forth the argument: Do liberals really care about social justice? If so, they sure don't care about life.
