Washington (AP) - A small group of pro-choice advocates protested the selection of John Roberts as the Supreme Court nominee Thursday.
They waved signs on an intersection in the Roberts' hometown during the morning rush hour in Chevy Chase.
Four demonstrators from the Maryland branch of NARAL Pro Choice held up signs that read "Honk 4 Choice" and "Keep Abortion Legal" at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and East-West Highway.
Roberts, a federal appeals court judge in Washington, lives in Chevy Chase.
Maryland's NARAL unit has collected signatures in cities like Annapolis, Baltimore and Frederick, urging the state's two U.S. senators to reject his nomination.
Roberts said in his 2003 Senate confirmation hearing for the appellate court that he believed Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion, was "settled law."
