Trump nominates attorney general with anti-Roe v Wade past
After a month of speculation, President Donald Trump has selected William Barr to be his new permanent attorney general. Barr is a conservative who declared during his previous confirmation hearings that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided.
At the time, Barr told the Senate Judiciary Committee that, however broad a constitutional right to privacy may be, "I do not believe it extends to abortion." Then-Sen. Joe Biden, who went on to become President Barack Obama’s pro-abortion Vice President, complimented Barr for bucking tradition and giving a “candid answer” on the subject.
