The conclusion: He's a superb circuit court judge who is applying the law as the Supreme Court has announced it. Anyone purporting to know how Judge Alito will rule on abortion -related cases as a member of SCOTUS is making it up. Period.Some struggle with the fact that Alito submitted to prior Supreme Court rulings as required by law and does not have an explicitly pro-life public stand. Others take comfort in the fact that he apparently disagreed with SCOTUS in Carhart, stood for the personhood of the unborn in Alexander v. Whitman, and is a strict constructionist.
Those discouraged by the MSMs representation of Alitos peers (Judges: Alito Unlikely to Overturn Roe) would do well to read Daisy Cutters commentary of the judges prior decisions. Also, check out Charles Krauthammer's Distorting Sam Alito.
