Sotomayor has made some judicial calls that will give the folks at NARAL, NAF, and Planned Parenthood reason to shake in their shoes.
1. She upheld the Mexico City Policy, which blocked US funding of organizations that promote abortion in other countries.
2. She passed a ruling in favor of prolife protestors.
3. She backed political asylum for the spouses and unmarried partners of Chinese women facing forced sterilization or abortion.
That third one will particularly stick in the abortion advocacy craw because of what she wrote in her opinion on the case:
“The termination of a wanted pregnancy under a coercive population control program can only be devastating to any couple, akin, no doubt, to the killing of a child,” she wrote
"The harm is clearly directed at the couple who dared to continue an unauthorized pregnancy in hopes of enlarging the family unit," she added.
Sotmayor also noted “the unique biological nature of pregnancy and special reverence every civilization has accorded to child-rearing and parenthood in marriage.”
To the abortion lobby, them's fighting words.
