PFAW's Report on John G. Roberts

Here is the report (pdf) by People for the American Way on Judge John G. Roberts. Here's the overview:

Roberts’s record is a disturbing one. Among other things, Roberts is hostile to women’s reproductive freedom, and he has taken positions in religious liberty and free speech cases that were detrimental to those fundamental rights. Roberts has limited judicial experience, but even his short tenure as a judge raises serious concerns about his ideology and judicial philosophy.

For example, dissenting opinions by Roberts have
questioned the constitutionality of the Endangered Species Act
and argued that Americans tortured by Iraq when it was a
terrorist state can receive no compensation. This preliminary
review of Roberts’s record indicates that it falls far short of
demonstrating the commitment to fundamental civil and
constitutional rights that should be shown by a Supreme Court nominee.
