He seems like a conservative intellectual, very erudite, and an 'originalist' who views the Court as a judicial (interpretive) body rather than a legislative (law making) one. All to the good, and in the image of Anton Scalia
He wrote a book , The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthenasia
, in which he objected to the idea that the State should be required to kill someone on their request as fundamentally in contradiction of the U.S. Constitution's guarantees of Life and Liberty, and a danger to the integrity and well being of a live affirming nation.
So much different than the pathetic flunkies and political hacks on the SCOC, especially that intellectual and moral mediocrity of a Chief Justice, Bev MacLaughlin.. which voted 9 to 0 to impose Euthenasia on Canada.
But they wouldn't be able to get anywhere if we didn't have such a gutless Parliament (and moron PM) who have bequeathed the Court dictatorial status.. and put us under a judicial tyranny. A Charter of Rights arbitered by a judiciary is an anathema to a Parliamentary System which does not have the checks and balances to control it.. hence absolute power CORRUPTS, absolutely.
I expect Gorsuch would vote against reaffirming Roe v Wade, which would essentially remove abortion as Constitutionally protected right.. and place it back with the legislative branch.. and remove that legitimacy which has caused deaths of almost 60 million infants in America since 1973.
