SCOTUS: Diane Wood and abortion

The Wall Street Journal writes, "Recent Supreme Court nominees have come before the Senate with such slim records on abortion that their views were anybody's guess. Not so with Diane Wood, a Chicago federal appellate judge who is on the White House's short list of candidates for the latest high-court vacancy. Judge Wood has expressed approval for the philosophy behind the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a woman's right to abortion, which was written by her former boss, Justice Harry Blackmun."
