Judge Alito, you said that your comment that the "constitution does not protect the right to an abortion" was made in the context of seeking a political job in the Reagan administration. With the implication that you were saying what your potential employer wanted to hear. You are now applying for a different job. Are you saying what you think we want to hear rather than what you believe?
