Ed, I think you and my correspondent may actually agree. Yes, Judge Pryor understands that the Constitution doesn’t speak to abortion one way or the other, and recognizes the irrelevance of his personal views to the practice of judging. The point is that many of those who voted against him do not. Because they believe that judges will, and perhaps even should, decide cases in accordance with their personal political views, they are uncomfortable with nominees who express pro-life views in strong terms.
