Oppose John Roberts for the Supreme Court

John Roberts, President Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court is a rightwing corporate lobbyist in the mold of Justices Scalia and Thomas. Instead of a mainstream jurist with a distinguished career as someone who protects the rights of the American people, Bush chose another procorporate, right-wing crony. Roberts on the issues: Workers' Rights: Opposed injured workers' right to receive disability. Reproductive Rights: Wrote that Roe v. Wade should be "overturned" and won case stopping doctors from discussing abortion with patients. Environment: Represented corporations opposing clean air and mining laws, opposed Endangered Species Act provisions, and wants government to pay polluters to prevent them from polluting. Civil Rights: Opposition to key provisions of the Voting Rights Act. Veteran Protections: Argued against federal court claims by American soldiers tortured in the Gulf War. Human Rights: Ruled that the Geneva Convention doesn’t apply to some prisoners of war. First Amendment: Argued that schools should be able to impose religious speech on attendees. Government Secrecy: Wrote that the government should be able to meet secretly with corporate lobbyists. John Roberts is a gift to President Bush's right-wing base. Help keep John Roberts off the Supreme Court
