It's All About Abortion

"'Sen. Leahy said he would vote against a Supreme Court nominee, like Judge John Roberts, if he would not commit to vote in favor of abortion in any cases that come before the court,' said Gary Marx, executive director of the Judicial Confirmation Network (JCN). "LINK:


"A group of female Democratic senators said yesterday that they will vote against Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr. unless he vows to uphold abortion rights."
LINK:

When will the Senators learn that the only acceptable litmus test is if the nominee plans to uphold the Constitution of the United States?

When did the oath taken to uphold the Constituion become irrelevant to our elected officials?
"A U.S. Senator takes this oath of office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

It now seems the oath of office has been changed to:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the liberal interpretation of all laws previously written or to be written so long as they
fit my personal views and that of my party. I will defend my right to my personal views and that of my party to interpret the Constitution only in the way that suits us. So help me fellow liberals.
