Alito on Abortion, When He Interviewed for Ed Meese

This is from an interview Judge Alito had with Attorney General Ed Meese in 1985:

Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., President Bush's Supreme Court nominee, wrote that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion" in a 1985 document obtained by The Washington Times. "I personally believe very strongly" in this legal position, Mr. Alito wrote on his application to become deputy assistant to Attorney General Edwin I. Meese III.

That should spice up the confirmation hearings.
