John G. Roberts, Jr. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Abortion. Roberts is listed as a coauthor on a brief before the Supreme Court in Rust v. Sullivan 500 U.S. 173 (1991), defending the validity of a government regulation that banned the mentioning of abortion as an option available to pregnant women seeking help from federally-funded family planning programs:
'We continue to believe that [Roe v. Wade] was wrongly decided and should be overruled. As more fully explained in our briefs, filed as amicus curiae, in Hodgson v. Minnesota, 110 S. Ct. 2926 (1990); Webster v. Reproductive Health Services, 109 S. Ct. 3040 (1989); Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, 476 U.S. 747 (1986); and City of Akron v. Akron Center for Reproductive Health, 462 U.S. 416 (1983), the Court's conclusions in Roe that there is a fundamental right to an abortion and that government has no compelling interest in protecting prenatal human life throughout pregnancy find no support in the text, structure, or history of the Constitution.' [1]"

But wait, there's more...
