More Confirmation on What She Thinks About Abortion

Posted: Jul 15, 2009 10:56 AM
Sen. Coburn started mixing it up with a series of questions about abortion. Here were a few of her responses:

Coburn: Should abortion be legal at 38 weeks?

Sotomayor: "A woman has the constitutional right to terminate her pregnancy under certain circumstances."

Coburn: Should technology have any bearing on whether or not a child should be aborted?

Sotomayor: "I can't answer that question."

Coburn: What about a viability of a fetus? Should that be a standard that we consider?

Sotomayor: "I can't answer the question because the Court does not reach out to answer the question."

It'll be interesting to see if Coburn tears up. He does that when talking about abortion sometimes.
