LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Court picks sell out our ideals

President Donald Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court are vetted for their Republican politics, religion and youth, not for the Constitution and justice for all citizens.

Imagine 40 years of 5-4 Supreme Court decisions favoring conservative dogma. The court will have lost its purpose.

If Roe v. Wade is reversed, our daughters’ lives will go backward to the 1950s, a time of back-alley abortions. And Trump has been clear that there will be some kind of punishment for abortions. Wow, I can hardly wait. Men will never feel the wrath of that decision.

Don’t let dictatorship become our government and control our daughters.

America allows us to vote on the government we choose, not someone else’s due to their religion and upbringing.
