Planned Parenthood Gets Hostile Over Amy Coney Barrett Quoting Legendary President at Hearing

If this is the best her opponents can come up with, Amy Coney Barrett is a lock for the Supreme Court.

Of all the vested interests with an eye on the Barrett confirmation hearings that entered their second day on Tuesday, the abortionists at Planned Parenthood have to be one of the most vigilant, considering their business model is basically built on providing the murderous service leftists are terrified Barrett’s presence on the court would endanger.

An attack on Barrett from that direction isn’t only expected, it’s practically demanded by the knee-jerk politics of progressives at the moment. What wasn’t expected was the astounding ignorance that attack would unveil.

In a Twitter post published Tuesday, Planned Parenthood Action, the political arm of the nation’s largest abortion provider, decided to imply Barrett is some kind of bigot for quoting John Adams, the second president of the United States and one of the most brilliant of the brilliant minds among the Founding Fathers.

“Fun fact: The phrase that Barrett used ‘we are a government of laws, not of men’ is one that Scalia used often and was also used in Chief Justice Roberts’s opinion disagreeing that the Constitution protects marriage equality (Obergefell), which Scalia joined,” the tweet stated.

Yes, well, Barrett did use the phrase in her opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee (CNN has the transcript here).

And Chief Justice John Roberts did use it in dissenting in the Obergefell decision — the 2015 ruling that legalized homosexual marriage pretty much on the grounds that then-Justice Anthony Kennedy felt like it (and the court’s liberal wing was behaving with its typical lawlessness).

“Government of laws…” is also one of the most common phrases in American politics. While it was originally coined for the Massachusetts state constitution, according to the Cato Institute, it has applied traditionally to the country as a whole, since it perfectly describes a nation that is dedicated to a society built on laws that apply to all, not the whims of a royal class (or even celebrity elites with huge Twitter followings).

It’s tough to tell which is worse: That Planned Parenthood appeared ignorant of a staple of American political discussions, or that it considered belief in the supremacy of law to be somehow disqualifying in a candidate for the highest court in the land.

Either way, the response on social media had to be pure torture for the liberal sacred cow.

Margaret Sanger got the black race to do voluntarily what she wanted to do.

"""Like the abortion lobby today, Sanger urged Dr. Gamble to enlist the help of spiritual leaders to justify their deadly work, writing, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”""
