Giuiliani Defends Abortion Stance in S.C. Here, "S.C." happens to stand for South Carolina, but it's clear from the linked item that, when it counts, it would apply to "Supreme Court" too.

This, after a gantlet of conservative columnists have told him (under cover of telling us) that if he only gave a little, just came out against partial-birth abortion, just criticized overreaching judges, he'd be OK. Until this, his worst quotes on abortion were from six years ago or more. Now, they're from yesterday. And so's he, imo.

I know he has cited Roberts, Alito, Scalia, and Thomas as the type of S.Ct. Justices he would appoint. Frankly, his credibility on this point, not glowing to begin with, just went ffftt.
