I kind of liked the guy on first impressions, but as the testimony wore on I became more uncomfortable. Maybe that's just me. The thought of him being on the Supreme Court for maybe 35-40 years bothers me.
My impressions are that he is not so far right he would outright overturn Roe v Wade. He probably would have rulings in favor of continued limitations so that is nearly impossible for women to make decisions without breaking the law. Example, if he personally believes that humans rights exist at the very instant of conception, then all his rulings will be Parent rights vs Child rights, and legally\logically speaking, no parent has the legal right to kill their own child. I think the best we can hope from him would be rulings where the mother has 110% chance of dying before giving birth, thus both die in the process. I'd guess, like the Trucker case, he would rule against a rape victim stating that being "Raped" does not change the biological process of conception, therefore one crime does enable the mother to commit a crime because she has the option of giving the child up for adoption... Overall, my impression of him is that he does not have empathy. The impact on human lives is not part of an equation, it's about the process of law.
I was watching his wife's reaction during the hearing. Its 100% unfair for me pass judge on her, so my next comment really is invalid\unfair. She looked\acted like the typical conservative wife that defers to her husband on everything that happens outside of the home, and is only on equal footing on parenting of their children; everything else is his. As a modern wife, she might provide feedback when asked, but she is only a trusted advisor, not an equal partner in their relationship.
