Sonia Sotomayor and abortion

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on May 29, 2009

Emily Douglas wrote an interesting piece for the RH Reality Check blog yesterday. She outlines the unknown that is Sotomayor’s position on abortion. Sotomayor has never ruled explicitly on abortion in a court, or come out publicly on one side or the other. She is expected to be asked about Roe v. Wade during senate hearings.

More talk about this issue:

Charlie Savage’s article in the New York Times: here

And a response, by Julie Hollar from RH Reality Check: here

The Daily Women’s Health Policy Report offers up this report based on attempts by the White House to calm the waters around Sotomayor and abortion.

Also, a National Public Radio piece here with our very own Chuck Schumer.
