Washington, DC -- One of the leading pro-abortion members of the Senate has confirmed Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's pro-abortion credentials following a private meeting with her. Sen. Diane Feinstein, a California Democrat and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says Sotomayor is pro-abortion.

Whew for a second there I was afraid she might let a few fetuses survive.
Catholic or not, cloned radicals like Sotomayor will vote the party ticket.
One already knows what positions she will take.
Of course she will. She’s a liberal - er - progressive - er socialist - er - stupid. Original thoughts are foreign to her.
Bill Donohue: Will Likely “Quietly Root For” Sotomayor (!)
Thursday May 28, 2009
Conservative Catholic activist Bill Donohue shocked me this morning by saying he will “quietly root for” the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor. During an email exchange, he wrote:
“I like the fact that she is not brandishing her religion. I do not want Catholic judges to rule as Catholics but as judges. I am all for Catholic legislators having a Catholic-informed opinion, but a judge has a different charge. Unless something pops that we don’t know about, I am not going to oppose her. Indeed, the experiences I had working with the Puerto Rican community lead me to quietly root for her.”
Donohue is the head of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, and a longtime critic of liberal cafeteria Catholics, pro-choice Catholic politicians and anti-Catholic bias in the media. He’s an honorary member of the “religious right” so his comments are sure to stir conversation among religious conservatives.
The first part of the comment is interesting, as it mirrors what Justice Antonin Scalia has himself said: that Catholic judges have no obligation to bring to bear their religion in deciding matters on the court. It signals that I may have been wrong in predicting full out Catholic church campaign against her. Of course, it may be easier for Donohue — and the Catholic hierarchy — to stomach Sotomayor because she doesn’t, so far, seem to be a down-the-line pro-choicer.
Whatever the reason, Donohue’s statement is a signal that, at a minimum, there is not a united front among religious conservatives.
