    Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch Supports Roe V. Wade

    By The Editor  Published: March 23, 2017

    WASHINGTON — During his second day of questioning for his Senate confirmation hearing, Trump U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch said that he accepts Roe v. Wade as the “law of the land” and its opinion that a “fetus is not a person.”

    On Wednesday, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., asked Gorsuch about a sentence in his book “The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia,” in which he concluded that “[a]ll human beings are intrinsically valuable, and the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.”

    “How could you square that statement with legal abortion?” Durbin inquired.
    Gorsuch, currently a judge with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, posited that abortion is different because the unborn are not legally recognized as people.

    “Senator, as the book explains, the Supreme Court of the United States has held in Roe v. Wade that a fetus is not a person for purposes of the Fourteenth Amendment—and that book explains that,” Gorsuch replied.

    “Do you accept that?” Durbin asked.

    “That’s the law of the land. I accept the law of the land, Senator, yes,” Gorsuch answered firmly.
