Roberts Supreme Court Nominee

President Bush has picked Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Good news for pro-lifers? Maybe. I hope so.

Back in 2003, Roberts told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Roe v. Wade was "the settled law of the land."

"There's nothing in my personal views that would prevent me from fully and faithfully applying that precedent," told the Committee according to Fox News.

On the other hand...

Roberts did co-write a brief that stated, "We continue to believe that Roe was wrongly decided and should be overruled."

Personally, I like "the other hand."
