Justice Sotomayor on abortion precedent at 2009 confirmation hearing

1 00:00:00,660 –> 00:00:06,030 >> In Planned Parenthood versus Casey the court reaffirmed the core 2 00:00:06,030 –> 00:00:12,210 holding of Roe vs. Wade that a woman has a constitutional right 3 00:00:12,210 –> 00:00:17,610 to terminate her pregnancy in certain circumstances. Do you believe that 4 00:00:17,610 –> 00:00:23,210 this right to privacy includes the right to have an abortion. The court has said 5 00:00:23,210 –> 00:00:26,510 in many cases and as I think. 6 00:00:30,230 –> 00:00:35,780 >> Has been repeated in the court’s jurisprudence in Casey that there is 7 00:00:35,780 –> 00:00:41,600 a right to privacy that women have. With respect to the termination of 8 00:00:41,600 –> 00:00:47,330 their pregnancies in certain situations do you believe that the court’s abortion rulings have 9 00:00:47,330 –> 00:00:47,900 ended. 10 00:00:48,740 –> 00:00:50,960 >> The national controversy over this issue. 11 00:00:57,420 –> 00:00:58,240 >> No.
