The first of President-elect Donald Trump’s many pro-life selections to lead major departments reaffirmed his 100% negative opinion of the disastrous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in confirmation hearings that began Tuesday.

Senator Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s choice to be the next Attorney General, was asked Monday if he stood by a previous characterization of Roe.
