It's not often that constitutional scholars are as forthcoming as Pennsylvania law professor Kim Roosevelt is here:
But Roosevelt doesn't think academia is entirely disinterested. "You don't necessarily have a client, but maybe you have your particular political beliefs that are driving you to try to reach a certain conclusion. I try very hard to justify Roe v. Wade. Very difficult to do. But I wouldn't be trying so hard if I weren't ideologically pro-choice. It's still difficult to try and be completely objective."
