Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Abortion advocates are meeting the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court with concern and hesitation. Pro-abortion groups opposed John Roberts’ nomination because they received no assurances he would uphold Roe v. Wade on the high court. They appear to have similar concerns about Miers, whose position on abortion is largely unknown, and want her to answer questions during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings about her views. "The stakes are too high to allow senators to confirm Harriet Miers to a lifetime appointment on our nation’s highest court without an extensive investigation into her views on [abortion]," Planned Parenthood interim president Karen Peal wrote supporters Monday.
