Transcript [Sept.R873 SAMPLE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR- Please use one of these letters - or write your own --- the public needs to be aware of the Bork nomination and the threat to privacy tf he is confirmed. President Reagan's nomination of Judge Robert Bork to the Supreme Court deserves to be soundly rejected. Judge Boifk is not only a conservative, but an extremist. Justice Powell was a conservatXvej but he judged cases before him on a case by case basis. Judge Bork does not believe that the "right to privacy" exists in the Constitution, as interpreted by the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, Griswold v. Connecticut, or other cases. ThIi alone should warn people to the very real danger their civil rights would b$ in, should Judge Bork be confirmed. Like most people today, whatwith the problems of our economy and just day to day living, it would be very easy for me "o ignore this threat. But this issue is too critical to ignore. It will ffect our lives for the next 25 to 30 years. I feel very strongly that every person who feels this way should take the time to write Senators Bentsen and Gramm and express their opposition to Judge Bork's nomination. This is not the time to rely on "someone else" writing the letters, or the attitude that one letter won't make any difference. This is the only time we have a chance for our voices to be heard, regarding the confirmed, it is for life, or their decision Supreme Court. Once a justice is to retire. As a member of the majority of people in the U.S. who are pro-choice, I am extremely concerned regarding President Reagan's nomination of Robert Bork as U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He has gone on record as being opbosed to the Court's finding in Roe v. Wade. Furthermore, he does not believe that the "right to privacy" exists in the Constitution, as interpreted by tie Court in Roe v. Wade and other cases. This view threatens more than our most of our most basic civil righ right to safe, legal abortion. It threatens ts we take for granted now. But as far as Roe v. Wade is concerned, I am not only concerned about an outright reversal. Even if this tfid not happen, the intent of Roe could be eroded by restrictions as to leave it meaningless. We, the majority, can no longer afford to remain silent. For too long the anti-abo rtion fanatics have been heard, because even though they represent the minority, they are loud and not afraid to speak up. Reasonable citizens, who value their privacy ,# should be appalled at the possibility of Mr. Bork on their Supreme Court. _._._.._.-.._.«.-.-._-, « _---—_,_-, J-__ - »«•-»«• -- Robert Bork, President Reagan's nominee to replace Justice Powell on the U.S. Supreme Court, is touted by many as a brilliant legal scholar. This may be the case, but a brilliant legal mindldoes not automatically translate into qualification for the Supreme Coiirt. A neutral judicial posture involves make an honest effort to uphold the original concepts - such as civic equality, access to the judicial system, and personal liberty -- that inspired the drafjters of the Constitution. Justice Powell, while certainly a conservative, made this effort. In sharp contract, instead of strjiving to remain faithful to these ideals, and [brought to life in contemporary society, d be constrained only as it would have been in the 18th century. When he urges that judicial understanding of human. relationship must be grounded in|"original intent," Bork intends to bind 20th century courts with 18 t*n cent ury jassumpt ions about gender roles, race, and the prerogatives of the wealthy. j to understand how they should be Mr. Bork asserts that power shoul EDIT RE-WRITE Some papers restrict to 200 word letters.
