Abortion groups pressure Obama for a pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee

The ink is barely dry on retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens' letter of resignation and the pro-abortion crowd is already haranguing for a "pro-Roe" replacement.

This week, both the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and the National Organization of Women (NOW) issued statements calling on President Obama to nominate another pro-abortion Justice...

"Given the current composition of the court, we will assess the eventual
nominee's complete record on privacy and other relevant issues in
the same way we did during Justice Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation
process," NARAL President Nancy Keenan said.

"One thing is certain: opponents of women's freedom and privacy
will use this vacancy on the court as an opportunity to further their
attacks on nominees who have taken pro-choice positions," Keenan

The National Organization for Women also weighed in on Stevens' retirement
and called on Obama to ignore qualified male jurists and only pick
a woman for the high court. ...

"NOW is dedicated to achieving gender parity on the Supreme Court,
and we call on President Obama to nominate a woman to fill this seat,"
NOW President Terry O'Neill said in a statement. "The Supreme
Court is out of balance, with women making up a mere 22 percent of
the bench. That's simply not enough."

Of course, as per the usual, neither of the groups had any comments about the 50 million-plus American lives that have been snuffed out since Roe vs. Wade became the law of the land.
