What Does Judge Sotomayor Know?

Last week during the confirmation hearings on Sonia Sotomayor, I blogged here at Bench Memos and at the American Principles Project that her answer to Sen. Tom Coburn on the present state of abortion law was simply wrong.  A commenter at APP wanted more explanation, a wish I have seen expressed elsewhere when I or someone else makes the claim that the Supreme Court has established “abortion on demand” throughout the course of pregnancy.  Today at Public Discourse I have a pretty full explanation of this matter, and raise the question again, why didn’t Judge Sotomayor get it right?
