Roberts Position On Abortion

A new poll by the Associated Press suggests more than half of Americans think Supreme Court nominee John Roberts should state his position on abortion before being confirmed. 52 percent of Americans surveyed think Roberts should make public where he stands on abortion before the Senate votes. When Roberts was the deputy solicitor general in 1990, he helped write a legal brief that said the Roe-v-Wade decision "should be overruled." But at the time, his job was to reflect the Republican administration's policy. That's left people wondering about his personal beliefs. Still, the survey found more people than not are inclined to favor his confirmation: 47 percent to 24 percent.
