John Roberts memo shows support for burial service for fetuses.

Coming, as this does on the heels of the revelation that Roberts gave preconsent to anti abortion violence, I trust that John Roberts will have to abandon the act that he's just a "middle of the road type guy" now.
As a senior legal adviser to President Reagan, John G. Roberts Jr. concluded that a controversial memorial service for aborted fetuses, organized by a group of California doctors who opposed Roe v. Wade , was "an entirely appropriate means of calling attention to the abortion tragedy."

The words of the Supreme Court nominee, contained in a 1985 memo in which he approved a telegram from Reagan supporting the service, provide the clearest insight to date into Roberts's personal views on abortion at a time when both proponents and opponents of Roe have a keen interest in whether he would tip the court's balance on one of the nation's most volatile social issues.
