NARAL Cautious on Sotomayor

Nancy Keenan of NARAL has issued a congratulatory non-endorsement of President Obama's choice for the Supreme Court:
"President Obama has selected a nominee with a distinguished record of professional accomplishments as a judge, prosecutor, and community leader. This impressive personal biography signals that she possesses an understanding of how the law affects everyday people's lives," Keenan said. "We are encouraged by the strong support she receives from her peers and other legal scholars and the fact that the Senate has twice confirmed her for federal judgeships. We look forward to learning more about Judge Sotomayor's views on the right to privacy and the landmark Roe v. Wade decision as the Senate's hearing process moves forward."

That seems to indicate NARAL doesn't know Sotomayor's position on Roe and is therefore withholding judgment.

More on this and other reactions later.
