Pro-life advocates concerned about possible pick for Supreme Court

.- Pro-life advocates are concerned that President George W. Bush may be considering Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as a nominee to the Supreme Court, reported LifeNews.com. As a member of the Texas Supreme Court, Gonzales voted to allow some teenagers to use the judicial bypass of the state's parental notification law to obtain an abortion.

However, no official announcements have been issued by the Bush administration that Gonzales is being considered. It seems the concern is based on a buzz around Washington.

Syndicated columnist Bob Novak wrote recently that the mention of Gonzales' name "looks like a trial balloon" that Bush could use to gauge the negative reaction from pro-life advocates and settle on another more acceptable nominee.

Novak also speculates that "Gonzales' name has been floated by critics in order to shoot him down."

Gonzales has already been through the confirmation process once, and there is some speculation that he will have an easier time being confirmed the second time around.

If Gonzales is not the top pick, every other potential nominee the president is reportedly considering has a judicial track record that is pro-life.
