Monroe Minor Redden

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Monroe Minor Redden (September 24, 1901 – December 16, 1987) was a Democratic U.S. Congressman from North Carolina between 1947 and 1953.

Redden was born in Hendersonville, North Carolina; he attended public schools and then Wake Forest College, graduating from its law school in 1923. He, and a younger brother (Arthur Redden), practiced law in Hendersonville, where he also chaired the Henderson County Democratic party from 1930 to 1946.

Redden rose to chair the North Carolina Democratic Party executive committee from 1942 to 1944. In 1946, he ran for the U.S. House and won, serving for a total of three terms (January 3, 1947 – January 3, 1953).

Redden retired from Congress in 1952 and returned to his law practice. He was president of the Southern Heritage Life Insurance Company, from 1956 to 1959. Redden died in his hometown of Hendersonville in 1987.

Transcription

00:00:35 WE'LL HEAR ARGUMENT NUMBER 18, ROE AGAINST WADE. MRS. READINGTON, YOU MAY PROCEED WHEREVER YOU ARE 00:01:05 Unidentified Speaker READY. >> MR. CHIEF JUSTICE AND MAY IT PLEASE THE COURT, THE INSTANT CASE IS A DIRECT APPEAL FROM A DECISION OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR... 00:01:38 Unidentified Speaker WOMAN'S RIGHT TO DETERMINE TO CONTINUE OR TERMINATE A PREGNANCY. ALTHOUGH THE COURT GRANTED DECLARATORY RELIEF, THEY DENIED THE REQUEST FOR INJUNCTIVE... 00:03:19 Unidentified Speaker WORKING WITH THE STATUTE WHICH PROVIDED THAT AN ABORTION COULD BE PERFORMED FOR REASONS OF HEALTH OR LIFE. OUR TEXAS STATUTE PROVIDES AN ABORTION 00:03:29 Unidentified Speaker ONLY WHERE IT IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF SAVING THE LIFE OF THE WOMAN. 00:03:34 Unidentified Speaker SINCE THAT ADDITION WAS RENDERED, 00:03:37 Unidentified Speaker THE TEXAS COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS, WHICH IS OUR HIGHEST COURT OF JURISDICTION, HAS HELD THAT THE TEXAS LAW IS NOT VAGUE BUT SAYING IT IS MORE DEFINITE... 00:07:44 Unidentified Speaker ARE A GOOD MANY THRESHOLD QUESTIONS, ARE THERE NOT, OF -- >> YES, YOUR HONOR, THERE ARE. >> JURISDICTION. >> I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT, OF COURSE, TO... 00:07:53 Unidentified Speaker COURT THAT IN 00:07:54 Unidentified Speaker MY READING OF 00:07:58 Unidentified Speaker YOUNGER VS HARRISON 00:08:00 Unidentified Speaker ALL THE COURT WAS CONCERNED ABOUT IN THOSE CASES WAS THIZATION WHERE THERE WAS AN ATTEMPT TO INTERFERE WITH A PENDING STATE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. IN... 00:08:09 Unidentified Speaker POINTED OUT, 00:08:10 Unidentified Speaker THE ORIGINAL 00:08:11 Unidentified Speaker PARTIES TO THIS MATTER ARE WOMEN, AND IN ONE CASE THE HUSBAND. THE WOMEN, CERTAINLY, ARE NOT SUBJECT TO PROSECUTION IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. THEY ARE... 00:08:57 Unidentified Speaker EVEN IN THAT SITUATION AND THAT IN FACT SHE IS THE VICTIM OF OUR LAW. SHE CAN -- THERE IS NO DECLARATORY RELIEF AVAILABLE 00:09:04 Unidentified Speaker FOR THESE PLAINTIFFS. THEIR ONLY FORUM WAS THE FEDERAL COURT, AND IT WAS TO THOSE COURTS THAT THEY TURNED. >> YOUR THREE PLAINTIFFS REAR, REPRESENTING... 00:09:32 Unidentified Speaker AND THEN THIRD IS A PHYSICIAN -- >> 00:09:34 Unidentified Speaker YES. >> WHO IS UNDER INDICTMENT, OR WAS 00:09:36 Unidentified Speaker AT THE TIME OF THIS COMPLAINT. >> THE PHYSICIAN INTERVENED AFTER THE ORDER 00:09:40 Unidentified Speaker WAS ENTERED GRANTING JANE ROE A THREE-JUDGE 00:09:44 Unidentified Speaker COURT AND HE INTERVENED AGAIN, ASKING ONLY THAT FUTURE PROSECUTION UNDER THE LAW BE ENJOINED. HE DID NOT ASK ANY RELIEF OF THE COURT RELATING TO HIS 00:09:54 Unidentified Speaker PENDING STATE CRIMINAL 00:09:55 Unidentified Speaker PROSECUTION. HE DID SPECIFICALLY, IN HIS 00:09:58 Unidentified Speaker COMPLAINT, RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ASK FOR FUTURE RELIEF, BUT THAT WAS NEVER DONE, AND CERTAINLY IN THE FUTURE IF HE WAS ASKED FOR RELIEF THE COURT WOULD... 00:12:50 Unidentified Speaker CRIMINAL. AND EVEN THERE ARE SOME CASES WHICH INDICATE THAT OUR STATE SUPREME COURT WOULD NOT 00:12:56 Unidentified Speaker HAVE THE ABILITY TO INDAMUS ANY OF THE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OFFICERS BECAUSE THE TEXAS COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS HAS JURISDICTION AS TO ALL CRIMINAL ... 00:14:48 Unidentified Speaker IF THE PREGNANCY WOULD RESULT IN THE BIRTH OF A 00:14:52 Unidentified Speaker DEFORMED OR DEFECTIVE CHILD HE -- HE HAS NO RELIEF 00:14:57 Unidentified Speaker REGARDLESS OF THE PURPOSE OF -- SHE HAS NO RELIEF. I THINK IT IS WITHOUT QUESTION THAT PREGNANCY TO A WOMAN CAN COMPLETELY DISRUPT HER LIFE, WHETHER... 00:18:41 Unidentified Speaker BECAUSE OF COURSE, WE CANNOT HERE BE INVOLVED SIMPLY WITH MATTERS OF POLICY, AS YOU KNOW. >> YOUR HONOR, IN THE LOWER COURTS AS I'M SURE YOU ARE AWARE... 00:19:09 Unidentified Speaker SUBMITTED TO THE COURT AND DISTRIBUTED AMONG COUNCIL ENTITLED THE PHOENIX OF ABORTIONAL FREEDOM THAT AT THE TIME THE CONSTITUTION WAS ADOPTED THERE... 00:20:48 Unidentified Speaker COURT FOUND THE RIGHT TO RESIDE IN THE NINTH AMENDMENT, WE POINTED OUR ATTENTION IN THE BRIEF TO 00:20:54 Unidentified Speaker THAT PARTICULAR ASPECT OF THE CONSTITUTION. BUT I THINK WE WOULD NOT PRESUME -- I DO 00:21:04 Unidentified Speaker FEEL THAT -- 00:21:06 Unidentified Speaker THAT INSOMUCH AS THE COURT SAID THAT THE NINTH AMENDMENT APPLIED TO THE RIGHTS RESERVED TO THE PEOPLE THAT THE NINTH AMENDMENT IS THE APPROPRIATE PLACE... 00:22:27 Unidentified Speaker HAVE RESERVED TO THE WOMAN AS BEING THE VICTIM AND THEY HAVE NEVER REFERRED TO ANYONE ELSE AS BEING 00:22:32 Unidentified Speaker THE VICTIM. TIMES HAVE CERTAINLY CHANGED. I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO REALIZE THAT IN TEXAS SELF-ABORTION IS NO CRIME. THE WOMAN IS GUILTY OF NO CRIME... 00:24:15 Unidentified Speaker THE SITUATION IN WHICH THE CASE IS HANDLED. CERTAINLY, I THINK AS A 00:24:20 Unidentified Speaker PRACTICAL MATTER, THOUGH, MOST OF THE STATES THAT DO HAVE SOME TIME LIMIT INDICATED STILL PERMIT ABORTIONS BEYOND 00:24:27 Unidentified Speaker THE TIME LIMIT FOR 00:24:29 Unidentified Speaker SPECIFIED REASONS, USUALLY WHERE THE HEALTH OF THE MOTHER IS INVOLVED. >> WHAT'S YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION THERE? >> AS TO A TIME LIMIT? >> WHATEVER... 00:24:53 Unidentified Speaker 00:24:56 Unidentified Speaker THAT IT IS THE 00:24:57 Unidentified Speaker FREEDOM OF WITH THE WOMAN TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT TO CONTINUE A PREGNANCY. OBVIOUSLY I HAVE A MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TIME SAYING THE STATE HAS NO INTEREST... 00:25:16 Unidentified Speaker I GUESS BY PERSONS CONSIDERING THE ISSUE OUTSIDE THE LEGAL CONTEXT. I THINK AS FAR AS THE STATE -- >> DO YOU OR DON'T YOU SAY THAT THE CONSTITUTIONAL... 00:25:29 Unidentified Speaker RIGHTS YOU INSIST 00:25:30 Unidentified Speaker ON REACHES FROM THE TIME OF BIRTH OR -- >> THE CONSTITUTION AS I READ IT AND AS 00:25:35 Unidentified Speaker IS INTERPRETED AND 00:25:37 Unidentified Speaker DOCUMENTS BY PROFESSOR MEANS ATTACHES PROTECTION TO THE PERSON AT THE TIME OF BIRTH THOSE PERSONS BORN ARE CITIZENS. 00:25:44 Unidentified Speaker THE ENUMERATION CLAUSE. WE COUNT THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE 00:25:47 Unidentified Speaker BORN. THE CONSTITUTION, AS I SEE IT, GIVES PROTECTION 00:25:50 Unidentified Speaker TO PEOPLE AFTER 00:25:53 Unidentified Speaker BIRTH. >> (INAUDIBLE) THE ISSUE HERE, I GUESS, ON YOUR APPEAL IS WHETHER YOU ARE ENTITLED TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. >> YES, YOUR HONOR. >> ASSUMING THAT... 00:26:16 Unidentified Speaker INJUNCTIVE RELIEF? THERE ARE DIFFERENT THINGS (INAUDIBLE) >> YES, SIR. CERTAINLY IN YOUR DISSENT YOU POINT OUT IN (INAUDIBLE) 00:26:24 Unidentified Speaker DISSENTING OPINION -- >> THAT WAS A DEFENSE. >> IT WAS 00:26:27 Unidentified Speaker A DEFENSE, THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT STANDARDS WHICH APPLY TO THE DECLARATORY JUDGMENT AND TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. >> I GUESS YOU SAID THAT IN (INAUDIBLE)... 00:26:41 Unidentified Speaker SAID FOLLOWING LICKLER VERSUS TUTOR, 00:26:46 Unidentified Speaker THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE 00:26:48 Unidentified Speaker GRANTING DECLARATORY RELIEF DIFFERENT RULES APPLIED TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF BUT THE OPINIONS OF THIS COURT HAS ESTABLISHED 00:26:55 Unidentified Speaker WHETHER THERE IS GREAT AND IMMEDIATE THREAT 00:26:58 Unidentified Speaker OF IRREPARRABLE INJURY WITH NO ADEQUATE REMEDY IN STATE COURT THAT AN INJUNCTION IS STILL PROPER AND IT IS OUR POSITION THAT THERE IS GREAT AND IMMEDIATE... 00:27:30 Unidentified Speaker HONOR. >> WHAT ABOUT 00:27:32 Unidentified Speaker THE DOCTOR, WHERE A CRIMINAL PROSECUTION IS ALREADY PENDING AGAINST HIM? >> THE DOCTOR, AS I SAID, I WAS ASKING NO 00:27:40 Unidentified Speaker RELIEF AS TO THE PENDING PROSECUTION, HE WAS ONLY ASKING RELIEF AS TO THE FUTURE -- >> 00:27:44 Unidentified Speaker NOT ASKING FOR DECLARATORY 00:27:46 Unidentified Speaker JUDGMENT? >> YES, YOUR HONOR, HE JOINED IN BOTH THE REQUEST FOR THE DECLARATORY JUDGMENT -- >> 00:27:50 Unidentified Speaker ISN'T YOUNGER 00:27:53 Unidentified Speaker AND (INAUDIBLE) CASES COVER DECLARATORY JUDGMENT? >> WHERE THERE 00:27:58 Unidentified Speaker WERE PENDING -- SAMUELS VERSUS MICHAEL, AS I READ IT, DID SAY THAT WHEN YOU HAVE A REQUEST 00:28:05 Unidentified Speaker FOR DECLARATORY JUDGMENT, THERE 00:28:07 Unidentified Speaker WOULD BE AN EFFECT ON A PENDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. >> WAS ONE PENDING -- >> THERE WAS ONE PENDING WHEN THIS 00:28:13 Unidentified Speaker ACTION WAS BROUGHT. AGAINST DR. 00:28:18 Unidentified Speaker HALFORD. HOWEVER, IN THIS CASE, WE SUBMIT THAT IF THERE IS TO BE ANY MEANING TO THE FEDERAL COURTS AS THE SUPREME ARBITERS OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS... 00:28:30 Unidentified Speaker TO ACT, AT LEAST IN 00:28:32 Unidentified Speaker SOME FORM, WHEN THERE ARE PENDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS, NOT PARTICULARLY AGAINST THE PERSON INVOLVED IN THE PROSECUTIONS BUT OTHER -- >> (INAUDIBLE)... 00:29:02 Unidentified Speaker THAT? >> I'M SUGGESTING THAT IN IN CASE, THE WOMEN IN PARTICULAR BROUGHT A DECLARATORY ACTION HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PENDING STATE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.... 00:29:17 Unidentified Speaker DOCTOR CERTAINLY SHOULDN'T BE SUFFICIENT -- >> WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DOCTOR'S 00:29:20 Unidentified Speaker CASE. >> RIGHT. AND BECAUSE THE DOCTOR INTERVENED, WHEN HE WAS ASKING 00:29:24 Unidentified Speaker NO RELIEF AS TO THE PENDING STATE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION, THAT HAS INTERVENTION -- >> YOU MEAN HE WAS ASKING NOTHING -- HE WAS ASKING 00:29:34 Unidentified Speaker WHAT? AGAINST THE CONTINUEANCE OF THAT 00:29:36 Unidentified Speaker PROGRESS? >> THAT'S RIGHT. >> DECLARATORY JUDGMENT -- >> AS 00:29:39 Unidentified Speaker TO FUTURE PROSECUTION. >> 00:29:40 Unidentified Speaker EXCEPT THAT HE WANTED DECLARATORY JUDGMENT, AS I UNDERSTAND IT. >> YES. >> THE UNDERLYING STATUTE ON WHICH THE PROSECUTION WAS BROUGHT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.... 00:29:50 Unidentified Speaker THAT'S WHAT SAMUELS AND MICHAEL SAID HE DIDN'T HAVE. >> ASK WHICH YOUR DISSENT SAID HE DIDN'T HAVE. >> 00:29:57 Unidentified Speaker 00:29:58 Unidentified Speaker I 00:29:59 Unidentified Speaker REPEAT -- (INAUDIBLE) >> 00:30:00 Unidentified Speaker OK. I THINK PERHAPS WE WOULD STRESS THAT 00:30:03 Unidentified Speaker THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE 00:30:04 Unidentified Speaker ACTIONS BEFORE THE COURT. FIRST, THAT OF THE WOMEN. AND SECOND, THAT OF 00:30:09 Unidentified Speaker THE DOCTOR. >> SO THAT EVEN THOUGH -- >> EVEN THOUGH THE DOCTOR -- EVEN THOUGH 00:30:12 Unidentified Speaker THE COURT MIGHT FIND THAT THE DOCTOR WAS AN INAPPROPRIATE 00:30:15 Unidentified Speaker PARTY FOR RELIEF IT CERTAINLY WOULD NOT AFFECT 00:30:19 Unidentified Speaker THE ORIGINAL ACTION AS BROUGHT BY THE WOMEN. >> 00:30:21 Unidentified Speaker ALL RIGHT. I COME BACK AGAIN, IF WE'RE LEFT ONLY WITH THE LADIES' ACTION, ARE YOU SUGGESTING 00:30:29 Unidentified Speaker THAT 00:30:31 Unidentified Speaker THE DECLARATORY RELIEF THEY ALREADY OBTAINED IS NOT ENOUGH BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T HELP TERMINATE THE PREGNANCY? >> BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL 00:30:41 Unidentified Speaker SUBJECT TO THE IRREPARABLE INJURY AND HAD NO STATE REMEDY. IF THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO CONTINUE TO LITIGATE THEIR INTEREST IN THIS SITUATION, ANYTIME THERE... 00:30:59 Unidentified Speaker STATE COURT ON APPEAL -- OR IT WILL BE APPEALED HERE, I THINK, AND CERTAINLY IF THEY CANNOT LITIGATE THEIR INTERESTS WHILE THERE IS PROSECUTION PENDING... 00:31:36 Unidentified Speaker RIGHTS BUT THE RIGHTS OF HIS PATIENTS AND THOSE SAME PATIENTS ARE SUFFERING THE SAME SORT OF IRREPARABLE INJURY THAT THE ORIGINAL 00:31:44 Unidentified Speaker PLAINTIFFS WERE SUFFERING. >> COULDN'T THE DOCTOR RAISE THE SAME POINT IN THE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION? >> YES, YOUR HONOR, HE CAN. BUT I -- I DON'T FEEL... 00:32:07 Unidentified Speaker ISSUES HERE. THE ISSUE INVOLVING THE DOCTOR, DA >> YES. >> 00:32:10 Unidentified Speaker IS TO LITIGATE EVERYTHING HE'S NOW LITIGATING IN THE STATE COURT. >> YES, YOUR HONOR, MY POINT BEING THAT THESE WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE COMPELLED TO LEAVE... 00:32:25 Unidentified Speaker CRIMINAL PROSECUTION, ISN'T HE? YOU CAN COUNT ON HIM TO DO THAT. >> WELL, I THINK THERE ARE 00:32:29 Unidentified Speaker DIFFERENT 00:32:30 Unidentified Speaker INTERESTS INVOLVED. IN MOST 00:32:34 Unidentified Speaker CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS BRING UP OTHER PROBLEMS -- >> "I DIDN'T DO IT" OR SOMETHING. >> OR THE WITNESSES HAVE DISAPPEARED 00:32:42 Unidentified Speaker OR -- >> HAS THIS DEFENSE EVER BEEN OPPOSED IN A TEXAS CRIMINAL 00:32:48 Unidentified Speaker CASE FOR CONSTITUTIONAL DEFENSE? >> YES, YOUR HONOR, THERE IS ONE RECENT OPINION, THOMPSON VERSUS THE STATE OF TEXAS WHICH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ATTEMPTED... 00:32:59 Unidentified Speaker AND THE COURT REJECTED IT, IT WAS A DECISION 00:33:01 Unidentified Speaker ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF AGO WHICH ORIGINATED IN HOUSTON. A 00:33:05 Unidentified Speaker DOCTOR THERE WAS INDITED ON A CHARGE OF -- INDICTED ON A CHARGE OF 00:33:10 Unidentified Speaker ABORTION. AT TRIAL HE USED ONLY AN ALIBI DEFENSE BUT ON APPEAL HE DID RAISE THE SAME CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTIONS THAT WE RAISED IN THE FEDERAL COURTS --... 00:33:39 Unidentified Speaker THE CHIEF 00:33:40 Unidentified Speaker JUSTICE. >> SECOND THEY DID NOT DETERMINE WHETHER THERE WAS A RIGHT TO PRIVACY BUT DID HOLD THERE WAS A COMPEMMING INTEREST, SO IN -- COMPELLING INTEREST... 00:33:59 Unidentified Speaker TO THE FEDERAL COURT OPINION FROM WHICH WE ARE 00:34:01 Unidentified Speaker APPEALING. >> THAT CASE CAN BE (INAUDIBLE) >> THEY HAVE FILED A MOTION FOR REHEARING IN THE STATE COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS WHICH WILL BE ARGUED TOMORROW.... 00:34:12 Unidentified Speaker UNLIKELY THAT THE COURT WOULD CHANGE ITS OPINION, AND IT IS THE INTENTION 00:34:17 Unidentified Speaker OF THOSE PARTIES TO APPEAL. >> DOES TEXAS LAW, IN 00:34:22 Unidentified Speaker OTHER AREAS OF THE LAW, GIVE RIGHTS 00:34:24 Unidentified Speaker TO UNBORN CHILDREN IN THE AREAS OF TRUST, ESTATES AND WILLS OR -- >> NO, YOUR HONOR, ONLY IF THEY'RE BORN ALIVE. THE SUPREME COURT OF TEXAS RECENTLY... 00:34:42 Unidentified Speaker THE CONDITION THAT IT BE BORN ALIVE. THE SAME IS TRUE OF OUR PROPERTY LAW. THE CHILD MUST BE BORN ALIVE. AND I THINK THERE IS A 00:34:50 Unidentified Speaker DISTINCTION BETWEEN THOSE CHILDREN WHICH ARE ULTIMATELY BORN, AND I THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE TO GIVE THEM RETROACTIVE RIGHTS, I THINK IT'S A COMPLETELY... 00:35:25 Unidentified Speaker THERE WAS NO CAUSE OF ACTION WHATSOEVER. >> FOR THE MOTHER -- >> I'M SPEAKING, EXCUSE ME, SOLELY FOR THE 00:35:33 Unidentified Speaker FETUS, THAT THE FETUS HAD NO INDEPENDENT RIGHT, THAT THE MOTHER -- >> 00:35:38 Unidentified Speaker THE MOTHER RECOVERING FROM THE DEATH OF THE CHILD -- >> 00:35:41 Unidentified Speaker ONLY FOR HER INJURY. >> ONLY FOR HERS. DID THAT INCLUDE ANYTHING WITH REGARD TO THE CHILD? >> NO, YOUR HONOR. 00:35:49 Unidentified Speaker THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU, MRS. 00:35:51 Unidentified Speaker WEDDINGTON. MR. FLOYD. >> MR. CHIEF JUSTICE, MAY IT PLEASE THE 00:35:59 Unidentified Speaker COURT. IT'S AN OLD JOKE, BUT 00:36:02 Unidentified Speaker WHEN A MAN ARGUES AGAINST TWO 00:36:04 Unidentified Speaker BEAUTIFUL LADIES LIKE THIS THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE THE LAST 00:36:08 Unidentified Speaker WORD. I -- 00:36:11 Unidentified Speaker BEFORE I PROCEED TO THE ORIGINAL ISSUE IN THIS CASE, 00:36:16 Unidentified Speaker WHICH WAS THE PROPRIETY OF THE TRIAL COURT GRANT -- OR DENYING INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, I WOULD LIKE TO BRING TO THE COURT'S ATTENTION SOME MATTERS CONCERNING... 00:38:53 Unidentified Speaker SAY THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD UPHOLD HER STANDING OR ELIMINATE THE MOOTNESS 00:38:57 Unidentified Speaker ISSUE WOULD BE WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS A CLASS ACTION 00:39:00 Unidentified Speaker ON HER PART. >> YES, YOUR HONOR. >> THE RECORD THAT CAME UP TO THIS COURT CONTAINS THE AMENDED 00:39:13 Unidentified Speaker PETITION OF JANE ROE. AN UNSIGNED ALIAS AFFIDAVIT. AND THAT IS ALL. SHE 00:39:26 Unidentified Speaker ALLEGES THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT ON 00:39:28 Unidentified Speaker APRIL THE 20TH, 1970, WHICH IS SOME 21 MONTHS AGO. NOW, I THINK THAT IT IS -- IT HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED BY THE APPELLANT'S COUNSEL THAT SHE IS NO LONGER... 00:42:19 Unidentified Speaker THEIR STATUTE HAD BEEN -- IT'S NOT TRUE HERE. >> IT'S NOT WHAT WE CALL A 00:42:24 Unidentified Speaker WHITE HORSE. >> I 00:42:35 Unidentified Speaker UNDERSTAND. >> IN RESPECT TO THE CLASS ACTION PORTION OF THIS, AND I SAY I HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO SUPPORT THIS PROPOSITION, BUT IT WOULD APPEAR 00:42:43 Unidentified Speaker THAT IN ORDER FOR A CLASS ACTION TO CONTINUE IF THERE BE ONE TO BEGIN WITH IS THAT ONE PLAINTIFF MUST REMAIN OR ELSE 00:42:55 Unidentified Speaker AN INTERVENOR, 00:42:56 Unidentified Speaker OR SOMEONE TO BE A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE CLASS. BECAUSE THIS IS THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE CLASS ACTION. TO HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE IN COURT. THE POSITION... 00:43:38 Unidentified Speaker IF I MAY. >> OK. >> I DO NOT BELIEVE IT CAN BE DONE. THERE ARE SITUATIONS IN WHICH, OF COURSE, AS THE COURT KNOWS, NO REMEDY IS PROVIDED. I THINK SHE... 00:43:55 Unidentified Speaker SHE BECOMES PREGNANT. THAT IS THE TIME OF THE CHOICE. IT'S LIKE, 00:44:00 Unidentified Speaker MORE OR LESS, THE FIRST THREE OR FOUR 00:44:02 Unidentified Speaker YEARS OF HER LIFE WE DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING BUT ONCE A CHILD IS BORN THE WOMAN NO LONGER HAS A CHOICE AND I THINK PREGNANCY MAY TERMINATE THAT CHOICE... 00:44:33 Unidentified Speaker ON MOVING. >> YOUR HONOR, APPELLANT IS UNDER TWO ARGUMENTS CHARGED WITH THE OFFENSE OF PERFORMING AN ABORTION. THERE ARE NO ALLEGATIONS IN THE COMPLAINT... 00:44:53 Unidentified Speaker APPELLANT HALFORD OR NONE IN HIS AFFIDAVIT THAT THERE IS ANY BAD 00:44:58 Unidentified Speaker FAITH PROSECUTION, BAD FAITH ARREST, HARASSMENT OF HIM AT ALL TO BRING HIM WITHIN PROSKEY'S SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES. WE THINK THE CASES OF YOUNGER VS... 00:46:54 Unidentified Speaker CAN DENY INJINCHINGTIVE RELIEF. >> CERTAINLY IF THE JUDGMENT ABOUT THE -- IF THE DECLARATORY JUDGMENT WAS ERRONEOUS, IT WAS ALSO RIGHT TO DENY AN INJUNCTION.... 00:47:13 Unidentified Speaker COURT, OF COURSE -- >> DIDN'T APPEAL. >> WE COULD NOT TO THIS COURT, YOUR 00:47:19 Unidentified Speaker HONOR, WE HAVE TO GO TO THE FIFTH CIRCUIT, SO WE HAVE -- >> ARE YOU ATTEMPTING TO SUSTAIN THE DENIAL OF AN INJUNCTION HERE ON THE GROUNDS THAT THE 00:47:29 Unidentified Speaker DECLARATORY JUDGMENT WAS IMPROPER? >> WE 00:47:31 Unidentified Speaker ARE ASKING THE COURT -- 00:47:34 Unidentified Speaker REQUESTING THE COURT TO DO THIS. 00:47:36 Unidentified Speaker IF THE COURT GETS INTO 00:47:37 Unidentified Speaker THE MERITS OF INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS PROPER UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, 00:47:43 Unidentified Speaker THAT THIS COURT GO FORWARD AND CONTINUE THE OTHER -- OR CONTINUE THE CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES AND MAKE A DECISION OR NOT. >> CAN WE DO 00:47:53 Unidentified Speaker THAT? YOU AND THE FIFTH CIRCUIT, BECAUSE WE SAID YOU COULDN'T CROSS-APPEAL FROM THE DECLARATORY JUDGMENT, YOU COULD ONLY CROSS-APPEAL FROM THE GRANTING... 00:48:13 Unidentified Speaker YOU'RE HERE. YOUR OPPONENT HAS BROUGHT A DIRECT APPEAL HERE BECAUSE YOUR OPPONENT WAS DENIED AN UNJUNCTION BY THE THREE-JUDGE DISTRICT COURT. >> YES,... 00:48:23 Unidentified Speaker A CROSS APPEAL HERE BECAUSE YOU WON 00:48:25 Unidentified Speaker FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF SUCCESSFULLY RESISTING THE INJUNCTION. >> YES, SIR. >> NOW THAT YOU ARE HERE AS THE APPELLEE, YOU ARE ARGUING THAT AN 00:48:34 Unidentified Speaker INJUNCTION SHOULD NOT HAVE ISSUED AND PART OF THAT JUDGMENT VERY LEGITIMATELY CAN BE THAT ON THE MERITS THE COURT 00:48:41 Unidentified Speaker WAS WRONG AND THAT IT SHOULDN'T HAVE 00:48:43 Unidentified Speaker ISSUED A DECLARATORY JUDGMENT OR AN INJUNCTION. >> YES, YOUR HONOR. >> IS THAT YOUR POSITION? >> 00:48:50 Unidentified Speaker YES. 00:48:51 Unidentified Speaker NOW THE PROCEDURES IN THE FIFTH CIRCUIT HAVE BEEN STAYED OR ABATED -- >> (INAUDIBLE) SAY YOUR POSITION MAKES SENSE TO ME. (INAUDIBLE) ON THE COURT OPPOSE... 00:49:08 Unidentified Speaker WANT TO BE REPETITION, 00:49:09 Unidentified Speaker BUT A MOTION 00:49:10 Unidentified Speaker HAS BEEN FILED IN THE FIFTH CIRCUIT TO HOLD THE APPEAL IN ABEYANCE UNTIL A DETERMINATION BY THIS COURT. >> YOU 00:49:17 Unidentified Speaker DIDN'T ASK -- HE DIDN'T FILE ANY MOTION HERE ASKING US TO BRING YOUR APPEAL PENDING IN THE FIFTH CIRCUIT HERE FOR A DECISION WITH THIS APPEAL, DID... 00:49:28 Unidentified Speaker IN OUR REPLY TO THE JURISDICTION AND IN OUR BRIEF. WE HAVE PRESENTED IT IN THAT 00:49:38 Unidentified Speaker MANNER. YOUR HONOR, WE FEEL THAT THIS COURT CAN AND SHOULD CONSIDER ALL ISSUES, 00:49:45 Unidentified Speaker AND UNDER THE STERLING AND FLORIDA LYMAN CAR GROWERS AND CARTER CASES WHICH ARE CITED IN THE BRIEFS OF THE PARTIES. >> (INAUDIBLE) TEXAS INTEREST --... 00:50:20 Unidentified Speaker THE COURT OF APPEALS DID NOT DECIDE THE ISSUE OF PRIVACY. IT WAS NOT BEFORE THE COURT. OR THE RIGHT OF CHOICE ISSUE. THE STATE -- THE STATE COURT, 00:50:31 Unidentified Speaker THE COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS HELD THAT THE STATE HAD A COMPELLING INTEREST BECAUSE OF THE PROTECTION OF FETAL LIFE. OF FETAL LIFE. PROTECTION. THEY... 00:51:26 Unidentified Speaker HUMAN BEING? I DON'T KNOW, EXCEPT THAT I WILL SAY THIS. AS MEDICAL 00:51:33 Unidentified Speaker SCIENCE PROGRESSES, MAYBE THE LAW WILL PROGRESS ALONG WITH IT. MAYBE AT ONE TIME IT COULD BE POSSIBLY, I SUPPOSE, THAT IT COULD BE PASSED. WHETHER OR... 00:52:04 Unidentified Speaker COVERS THE ENTIRE PERIOD OF PREGNANCY. >> YES, IT DOES, MR. JUSTICE, 00:52:10 Unidentified Speaker YES, SIR. >> MR. FLOYD, DOES THAT -- I DON'T FIND THAT (INAUDIBLE) I GATHER YOU SAID IT HAS BEEN DECIDED RECENTLY. >> 00:52:18 Unidentified Speaker MR. 00:52:19 Unidentified Speaker JUSTICE, THIS CASE IS 00:52:20 Unidentified Speaker JUST A RECENT CASE. >> 00:52:22 Unidentified Speaker DO YOU HAVE A CITATION? >> IT 00:52:24 Unidentified Speaker IS NOT IN THE REPORTER SYSTEM YET. >> ARE YOU GOING TO PROVIDE US WITH 00:52:29 Unidentified Speaker A TRANSCRIPT? >> I WILL BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE THE COURT WITH COPIES OF 00:52:33 Unidentified Speaker THAT. THIS IS NUMBER 00:52:39 Unidentified Speaker 00:52:42 Unidentified Speaker 44, 070, C.W. THOMPSON VERSUS 00:52:45 Unidentified Speaker THE STATE OF 00:52:48 Unidentified Speaker 00:52:50 Unidentified Speaker TEXAS. THE OPINION WAS DELIVERED ON NOVEMBER THE 2ND, 1971. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE THE COURT WITH THIS COPY IF THE COURT SO DESIRES. >> THAT'S... 00:53:32 Unidentified Speaker THAT IN ADDITION TO THE THOMPSON CASE DECIDED 00:53:36 Unidentified Speaker A HUGE CASE IN REGARD TO VAGUENESS 00:53:38 Unidentified Speaker AND SAID THAT IT WAS CONTROLLING THE ISSUES, AND 00:53:43 Unidentified Speaker AS I RECALL, 00:53:45 Unidentified Speaker DR. THOMPSON RAISED THE ISSUE OF HOW CAN YOU FIND ME GUILTY OF MURDER -- I MEAN, OF 00:53:53 Unidentified Speaker ABORTION IF YOU MAKE NO DETERMINATION THAT THE FETUS IS ALIVE AT THE TIME I PERFORMED THIS, IN EFFECT, IS WHAT HE'S SAYING. HE NEVER ADMITTED DOING... 00:54:36 Unidentified Speaker I THINK YOU ALSO SAID THAT WAS PERHAPS NOT ITS ORIGINAL PURPOSE. >> WELL, I'M NOT SURE OF THAT. >> IT MAY BE RATHER IMPORTANT. IN A CONSTITUTIONAL CASE... 00:55:03 Unidentified Speaker BE THE SAME IN 00:55:05 Unidentified Speaker THIS RESPECT. THERE HAVE BEEN STATISTICS FURNISHED TO THIS COURT IN VARIOUS BRIEFS FROM VARIOUS GROUPS AND FROM MEDICAL 00:55:19 Unidentified Speaker SOCIETIES OF DIFFERENT GROUPS OF PHYSICIANS AND GYNECOLOGISTS OR WHATEVER IT MAY BE, THESE STATISTICS HAVE NOT SHOWN ME, FOR INSTANCE -- FOR EXAMPLE,... 00:56:28 Unidentified Speaker LEGISLATION. >> I AM -- AND THIS IS JUST FROM MY -- I SPEAK PERSONALLY, IF I MAY, I WOULD THINK THAT EVEN WHEN THIS STATUTE WAS FIRST PASSED THERE WAS... 00:56:50 Unidentified Speaker 1900, 1907, SOMEWHERE IN THERE. >> IT GOES BACK -- >> IT GOES BACK MANY -- >> 19TH CENTURY. >> BEFORE THAT THERE WERE NO CRIMINAL ABORTION LAWS IN... 00:57:01 Unidentified Speaker I KNOW, NO. I THINK THIS WAS MAYBE SET OUT IN SOME 00:57:05 Unidentified Speaker OF THE BRIEFS. I -- >> IN ANY EVENT, MR. FLOYD, APART FROM YOUR PERSONAL ATTITUDE THE COURT 00:57:12 Unidentified Speaker IS OPEN ON THE INTENT OF THE STATUTE, IS 00:57:14 Unidentified Speaker IT NOT? >> YES. YES. >> 00:57:16 Unidentified Speaker I CAN'T SQUARE THAT MOST 00:57:18 Unidentified Speaker RECENT PRONOUNSMENT WITH THE EARLIER DECISIONS OF THE TEXAS COURT THAT REFER TO THE MOTHER 00:57:23 Unidentified Speaker AS THE VICTIM. CAN YOU? >> WELL, AS I 00:57:29 Unidentified Speaker SAY, YOUR HONOR, I DON'T THINK THE 00:57:34 Unidentified Speaker COURTS HAVE COME TO 00:57:37 Unidentified Speaker THE CONCLUSION THAT THE UNBORN HAS FULL JURISTIC RIGHTS. NOT YET. MAYBE THEY WILL. I DON'T KNOW. I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE 10-POINT. >> IN THE... 00:57:52 Unidentified Speaker PREGNANCY? >> SIR? >> IN THE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF PREGNANCY? >> AT ANY TIME, MR. JUSTICE. WE MAKE NO DISTINCTIONS. >> (INAUDIBLE) THERE ARE NOT. >> WE... 00:58:11 Unidentified Speaker THE MOMENT OF 00:58:13 Unidentified Speaker IMPREGNATION. >> AND DO YOU HAVE ANY SCIENTIFIC DATA TO 00:58:16 Unidentified Speaker SUPPORT THAT? >> WELL, WE BEGIN, MR.
