Dahlia Lithwick wonders why we don't have "conservative pundits and thinkers jigging for joy" in response to the news that back in 1985 Alito wrote that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." What's to get excited about? I always assumed Alito thought Roe was wrongly decided. Did anyone else actually believe otherwise? The interesting question is how much respect Alito believes Roe deserves as a precedent. I strongly suspect Alito will not give a clear answer to this question, for obvious political reasons.
