Former GOP presidential candidate and past Ohio Governor John Kasich appeared on “The View” this week, speaking with Meghan McCain about his belief that it is time for pro-lifers to set aside their pro-life beliefs for the sake of societal unity.
The exchange, which begins at approximately 4:10 in the following video, began with McCain discussing her reluctance to vote for candidates who do not share her pro-life beliefs. “You’re pro-life, and I know that. You were pro-life in politics, as am I,” McCain said. “It’s a big part of who I am and my platform, and I don’t think taxpayers should be funding abortions for women who are as pregnant as I am right now. How would you push back against a voter like me who’s concerned about things like this in a possible Biden-Harris administration?”

“Roe is grievously wrong for many reasons,” wrote Thomas, “but the most fundamental is that its core holding — that the Constitution protects a woman’s right to abort her unborn child — finds no support in the text of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
Instead of supporting the right to abortion, Thomas argued that Roe deprives individuals of liberty while simply requiring that this deprivation be protected. He calls it absurd that anyone would believe that the crafters of the Fourteenth Amendment would have meant to include a right to abortion.
“The fact that it took this Court over a century to find that right,” he argued, “all but proves that it was more than hidden — it simply was not (and is not) there.”
