Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito mocked Prince Harry, Boris Johnson, Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron over criticism of the abortion ruling while speaking in Rome at an event hosted by Notre Dame Law School.
Alito said: “I had the honor this term of writing, I think, the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law.”
“One of these was former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but he paid the price…Post hoc ergo propter hoc, right? (See Video Below)
“But others are still in office. President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Trudeau I believe are two.
“What really wounded me, what really wounded me, was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision whose name may not be spoken with the Russian attack on Ukraine.
“Despite this temptation I am not going to talk about cases from other countries,” he said.
Prince Harry said in a recent speech at the United Nations that “from the horrific war in Ukraine to the rolling back of constitutional rights here in the United States, we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the cause of Nelson Mandela’s life.”
Canada’s Justin Trudeau called overturning Roe v wade “horrific,” while Macron said he stood with Americans “whose freedoms have today been compromised by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
According to NBC:
“Harry described 2022 as a “painful year in a painful decade,” during a speech on July 18.
“He said the world was “witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom,” pointing to the “horrific war in Ukraine to the rolling back of Constitutional rights here in the United States,” among other global events as examples.”
In his Rome speech on religious liberty, Justice Alito mocked “foreign leaders” who condemned his opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, including Boris Johnson, Macron, Trudeau, and … Prince Harry.
