Judge Scalia: Supreme Court Overrides Constitution By Unconstitutional Minority

“Do you think the American people would ever have ratified” the Constitution if they had been told “the meaning of this document shall be whatever a majority of the Supreme Court says it is?” Scalia asked. Referring to the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion and the 1992 decision that barred states from placing an: “undue burden” on abortion rights, he said, “They vote on the basis of what they feel.”

“It’s the destruction of our democratic system,” Scalia said. “I cannot imagine the system can continue with more and more of the basic rules made by the Supreme Court.”
