Diane Feinstein Tries One More Time

Reported by Donna - January 11, 2006

There was no Studio B again today, instead we had the Alito hearings, unabated. Senator Diane Feinstein, (D-CA) tried for a second time, in round two to get Alito to give her an idea on what he thought about Roe vs. Wade, (young women, pay attention, this women is fighting for you) to no avail.

While even admitting that she was 'trying again' to get some definitive answer out of Judge Alito regarding Roe vs. Wade, Senator Diane Feinstein could not get anything out of him. She made a good opening statement saying that Roe vs. Wade has endured 38 tests and 33 years of being the law of the land but Judge Alito would not agree that it was 'settled' law if settled law meant that it could not be revisited. He did, however, say that it was law set in precedent.

For those not familiar with the word precedent, I looked it up in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary and received this definition: a : something done or said that may serve as an example or rule to authorize or justify a subsequent act of the same or an analogous kind b : the convention established by such a precedent or by long practice.

Comment: So, all Judge Alito is admitting to is that this has been the law of the land for a long time. Even Justice Roberts, in his interview, admitted that it was 'settled' law. When you look up 'settled' in the dictionary you get this: 1 : to place so as to stay.

I give you this information just to keep you up to date with the Alito hearings. I have no report on Fox bias, only the hearings and I bring you a little part of that. But young women should be standing up and paying attention, something that has been the law of the land your whole life could be something that goes away. Be a part of the political process.
