Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

I don't disagree in thinking Miers would be a poor, poor choice for the Supreme Court. But in her defense her "resume" (if you can call it that) can be easily spun as more liberal. For example:
Miers favored equal civil rights for gays when she ran for Dallas City Council, and said the city had a responsibility to pay for AIDS education and patient services...In a survey for the Lesbian/Gay Coalition of Dallas, Miers provides a hint of her thinking on homosexual rights issues. Miers answered Yes to: Do you believe that gay men and lesbians should have the same civil rights as non-gay men and women?
(as printed in the Houston Chronicle). So they should have the same rights. That sounds pretty...oh, liberal, to me.

About five years I was dating this girl named Laura. I was sitting on the front porch (alone) with her dad in complete, miserable silence. He broke the awkwardness by asking a simple question--the first words he had ever spoken to me. "Son. Are you a pervert or a liar?" "Pervert." I replied. "Me too." My sex life aside, I don't think there is anyone who wants to hear from a liar. Sorry, W. Toni was dead on when she said I cannot imagine W nominating someone to the court without knowing how she stands on critical issues. She's right. Mr. President I'm really pissed off that you think that we peasants are so stupid. If she was all for abortion she wouldn't a) be your lawyer b) be your nominee. You've been pulling these stunts off for so long you're getting a little too cocky.

My (current) girlfriend's father is a Public Defender. He is also seeping his faith. Yet when he goes to trial he just shuts it off. Completely. He is just a walking law book without any sort of personal affiliation with God. Once the tie comes off, he's back to "normal". Here's the ultimate reason no one will be happy with Mrs. Miers: Side A wants a strict, by-the-book, justice capable of putting his/her own feelings aside when working the bench. Side B wants someone capable of looking inward and doing "what is right". Miers accomplishes the goals of neither side and now both sides want someone else. If we're going to have a nominee that makes all of American grimmace you might as well put someone dreamy like Teri Hatcher.
