Ingraham: Framers Never Intended for Unelected Judges of SCOTUS to Have This Much Power
Laura Ingraham said Thursday in her opening monologue that there are big questions facing the Supreme Court as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg battles health issues.
Ginsburg just canceled a planned February appearance while she continues to recover from early-stage lung cancer surgery.
Ingraham said that, with questions about the physical condition of President Trump and "fitness for office," it should also be appropriate to ask similar questions about justices like Ginsburg.
Regarding Friday's March for Life, Ingraham said it brings attention once again to the court's Roe v. Wade decision.
Citing recent polls, Ingraham said Americans would overwhelmingly vote to "limit abortion," which puts the court "out of sync" with the populace.
"Not that any of that matters," she added "Because we've given so much power to the Supreme Court to run roughshod over the will of the people in the states, that's it become a super governmental force."
"Our framers never intended that unelected judges would have power over politics and our culture like this. Because it's a question, addressed time and again, by really smart minds, like the late great Justice Antonin Scalia."
Ingraham said the Constitution says nothing about abortion, nor how the federal government should go about sanctioning or banning it, quoting the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the matter.
Ingraham stressed that she wishes Ginsburg a speedy recovery.
