Piers Morgan picked the wrong Justice to tangle with.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia defended his faith in the Constitution and the Catholic Church in an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan last night.
Scalia faced probing questions about how a pro-life Catholic could adhere to the U.S. Constitution during a prerecorded interview on Piers Morgan Tonight. The justice stated a woman’s inviolable right to have abortion “is simply not in the Constitution.”
The British-born Morgan pursued the strict constructionist justice about abortion over the course of a series of questions.
Morgan asked Scalia why he was “so violently opposed” to Roe v. Wade.
“I wouldn’t say violently,” the justice said placidly. “I’m a peaceful man. You mean adamantly opposed.”
Scalia said the case was badly decided, because “the Constitution says nothing about” abortion.
