Would a Republican president ever nominate someone to the Supreme Court without knowing for sure how they stand on Roe V Wade?

Isn't Kavanaugh's only purpose in existing is to overturn Roe v Wade? Would conservatives accept any other nominee than an anti-abortionist? Are Liberals supposed to believe he has no partisan views on the issue of abortion?
Update: Why dont you just answer the question instead of moving it?
