Boxer threatens filibuster of Roberts

From LifeNews...

Pro-abortion Sen. Barbara Boxer of California says she will filibuster the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court if he does not say he is in favor of upholding the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized unlimited abortions. Roberts is expected to be asked about Roe during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings September 6.

Boxer said that she will both vote against Roberts and bring Senate activity to a halt if she doesn't get satisfactory answers to her questions about Roberts' abortion views.

"I need to know exactly where he will stand, and I need to know if he will fight to protect and defend the rights and freedoms of the American people," Boxer told reporters at a pro-abortion rally at Golden Gate University in San Francisco....

If he declines to answer the questions, Boxer will "use all the parliamentary tools I've been given as a U.S. senator" including procedures that "make it difficult for other business to get done until we get the information we need.''

A. Didn't she learn a few weeks ago that this won't work.

B. Isn't she also one of the ones that whine about Bush using a “pro-life litmus test”?
