Gov. Bill Richardson would test nominees with Roe v. Wade
Via the Des Moines Register:
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Friday that if he is elected president, he would use abortion as a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees, rejecting candidates who don't support the 1973 decision legalizing abortion.
"I know that I am going to upset some people," Richardson said. "I would say, 'Do you believe Roe v. Wade is settled law?' and if they say, 'Yes,' they have a good chance of being picked. If they say 'No,' I will not pick them."
We have audio and video of the Richardson event posted at www.iowapolitics.com.
Here’s the audio clip where he discusses how he would select Supreme Court justices:
