Klavan: Overturning Roe V. Wade Would Be Really Good For The Left

The left-wing media has been making a lot of fuss about Trump's Supreme Court pick eventually leading to a reversal of Roe v. Wade, and on Tuesday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show," host Andrew Klavan explains why that could actually end up being a truly good thing for the political left.

"If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it's not gonna stop people from getting abortions," said Klavan. "You can get abortions over the counter at this point, abortions are not gonna go away. But I think it would be great — not just for us but for the Left — repealing Roe v. Wade would increase and strengthen federalism, the rights of the states to make their own laws about important issues. That means that you have to go to the state, meet the people in the state, convince the people in the state that you are right, and get them to elect representatives who will vote with what you want."

Actually being forced to move out of their left-wing bubbles to meet the rest of the country, Klavan suggested, would finally give them a chance to get face-to-face with all those people they hate so much. "If they really still hate them then they can leave — which would be great for everybody," he said.

Video and transcript below:

I think [Kavanaugh] is going to be more conservative than we fear. It's always true that the danger is always from the Left. You know they always say “the Left always gets their judges right” — simple reason for that — all the temptations of power move you to the left. Anybody who falls prey to the temptation of power and overuses his power will be essentially on the Left, because that's what leftism is. It's statism, it's the state dictating what you do.

So it's harder to find a guy who says, “yes I'm going to make decisions that limit my power. I'm gonna make decisions that limit the power of the judiciary.” That's hard to do.

But if this guy comes through and he is more conservative, I think …i t's very doubtful to me that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it's not gonna stop people from getting abortions. You can get abortions over the counter at this point, abortions are not gonna go away. But I think it would be great — not just for us but for the Left — repealing Roe v. Wade would increase and strengthen federalism, the rights of the states to make their own laws about important issues.

That means that you have to go to the state, meet the people in the state, convince the people in the state that you are right, and get them to elect representatives who will vote with what you want.

That would be really good for the Left. That would get them out of New York, we'd get them out of LA, it would help them meet the people in the rest of this country, understand who they are, understand who they're talking about, and if they really still hate them then they can leave — which would be great for everybody.
