    Someone who is pro-choice might not be mainstream.  As someone above pointed out, one could argue for the constitutionality of abortion from a strict libertarian perspective - the same perspective from which one would strenuously limit the government's ability to enact social-economic legislation (a la New Deal).

    Abortion is an undeniably crucial issue, and I'm not sure I'm qualified to rank order priorities, but maybe making sure we don't get a Justice whose legal philosophy demands a laissez-faire gov't is as important as one who is (certainly) personally or (maybe) philosophically anti-choice.
