Sources for Alito's Record on Abortion and other issues

As the Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Samuel Alito unfold, we are learning more about his past performance on key issues in addition to his present views.

The Wikipedia entry is adding key points with references and links.

The Christian Science Monitor provides this excerpt on his past support for abortion along with case examples:

For example, of the four abortion cases in which he participated as an appeals court judge, he voted on the pro-choice side in all but one. A 1995 Alito vote striking down a Pennsylvania abortion restriction in particular is raising eyebrows among some legal scholars.
Pray for the Senate and for President Bush.

This blog and Myopic Zeal (among many others) are summarizing, compiling, and analyzing.
