"Alito's voting record is more like that of Justice Antonin Scalia, who contends the undue burden standard is hopelessly unworkable. Scalia also would like to overturn Roe.
As a judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, Alito voted in 1991 to uphold a Pennsylvania law that included a provision requiring women seeking abortions to notify their spouses. That case went to the Supreme Court, where justices used it to reaffirm Roe v. Wade. O'Connor was an architect of the decision that struck down the state's spousal notification requirement.
Abortion rights groups immediately criticized Bush's choice of Alito, who would become the fifth Catholic on the high court."
The Dems better step up to the plate, or this country is going back to the fifties, and not in a good way.
