Pro-Abortion Hispanic Group: Sotomayor Set Policy, Not Involved in Legal Briefs
July 1, 2009 by Steven Ertelt

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The president of a pro-abortion Hispanic group says Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor set policy but was not involved in pro-abortion legal briefs when she was on its board of directors. Sotomayor was on the board of the group now known as Latino Justice.

The organization, formerly known as the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, had her on the board from 1980 to 1992.

The New York Times notes that Sotomayor “was an involved and ardent supporter of their various legal efforts.”

Those efforts included several Supreme Court briefs arguing for unlimited legal abortions for any reason throughout pregnancy and for taxpayer funding of abortions.
