This is the best they could come up with?

I honestly haven't read enough about Judge Roberts to decide about him, but NARAL is really stretching, in my opinion, if this is the best they could come up with for why "Mr." Roberts shouldn't be a Justice.

Everything listed under the "Hostility to Reproductive Rights" section are arguments made by Judge Roberts when he was a Deputy Solicitor General, with the obligation to argue cases as an attorney on behalf of his client, essentially the Administration.

The stupidest one they have listed is an example where, during oral arguments, "a Justice asked, 'Mr. Roberts, in this case are you asking that Roe v. Wade be overruled?' [Judge Roberts] responded, 'No, your honor, the issue doesn't even come up."

So, evidently, stating that he's not asking for Roe to be overturned is "Hostility to Reproductive Rights"?

If this is the best they can do, objectors to the confirmation of Judge Roberts are going to look opportunistic and stupid.
