Sessions pledges to respect Roe v. Wade decision despite personal beliefs

Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions reiterated his view that Roe v. Wade "violated the Constitution" at a Senate confirmation hearing on his appointment as USA attorney general Tuesday.

Sessions said, however, that he believes the decision was a "colossal" mistake by the Supreme Court. Jeff Sessions during his attorney general confirmation hearings on Tuesday, Sen. "It violated the Constitution, and really attempted to set policy and not follow law".

"I haven't said that the woman's right to choose or the Roe v. Wade and its progeny is not the law of the land or not clear today". It has been so established and settled for quite a long time.

Dawn Laguens, the executive director of Planned Parenthood, suggested in a statement that Sessions' comments didn't change her organization's opposition to his nomination. Sessions has been an outspoken opponent of abortion, but said in the hearing he would enforce the law as attorney general. "We urge the Judiciary Committee to question Sen".

Trump agrees with Session's personal beliefs on abortion and has said he plans to nominate justices who want to reverse Roe v. Wade.

"You have referred to Roe v. Wade as one of the 'worst, colossally erroneous Supreme Court decisions of all time.' Is that still your view?"
