Attorney Darrell Castle Explains President Trump’s Supreme Court Nomination
On today’s program, Attorney Darrell Castle, who ran for President for the Constitution Party in 2016 was a guest. We discussed President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice, and how that may affect the future of the pro-life movement.
Darrell Castle, who is a practicing attorney in Memphis, Tennessee, started off by talking about how he joined the pro-life movement. He is one of the founders of the Constitution Party, along with the late Howard Phillips, who also ran for President for the Constitution Party.
During his life, Howard Phillips said that since the fetus is a person, he deserves the same Constitutional protections as other people. The Bill of Rights says that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, and property without due process of law.
That’s why Howard Phillips said that abortion is a federal issue. If elected President, he pledged to fire all of the US Attorneys and replace them with his own US Attorneys. He would then direct them to prosecute abortionists as murderers.
Unfortunately, the reverse happened with President Bill Clinton. Nevertheless, pro-life activists continue to strive to overturn Roe v. Wade.
How can we overturn Roe v. Wade?
Constitutional Attorney Herbert Titus, who ran for Vice-President of the Constitution Party, had the answer. In a lecture on the subject, he reminded his audience of the Supreme Court’s Furman v. Georgia ruling that the death penalty for capital crimes was itself “cruel and unusual.”
The states disputed this in court, and won. In a similar manner, he said, the states could pass laws recognizing that the fetus is a person worthy of protection by the US Constitution. Then it would be a matter of using local statutes against murder
Rather than doing that, some states, such as Virginia, have enacted laws that pretend to legalize murder via abortion. Others are working towards recognizing the fetus as a person.
Darrell Castle expressed the hope that if the states attempted to overturn Roe v. Wade as with the death penalty, Brett Kavanaugh might go along with that. It’s hard to say.
Let us pray the rosary that God will deliver us from abortion and the host of evils that has besieged our nation.
