      U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, a conservative member of the court and the one who wrote the ruling last month that struck down legalized abortion nationwide, defended the decision and slammed world leaders who opposed it in a keynote speech in Italy.  The left is wrong and making deceptive statements.

     Alito was the one who penned the decision striking down Roe vs. Wade in a related Mississippi case on June 24 and was the author of the draft that leaked to the press in May that indicated the high court would overturn the 49-year-old landmark law.  In a keynote address in Rome that was put on by the University of Notre Dame Law School, the 72-year-old justice who was appointed to the seat by former President George W. Bush in 2006 defended the ruling and took aim at critics, including Britain's Prince Harry and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

       Alito criticized Johnson for denouncing the ruling as a "big step backwards" and seemed to imply that the leader's opinion on the matter had something to do with his resignation this month.
