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?

    Ever since the Citizen's United decision the Supreme Court has demonstrated they are purely a political vehicle. They have zero credibility and have defeated the purpose for which the Supreme Court was formed.

      I agree. And it is sad that the US Supreme court is so politically chosen and biaised at times

    That's okay. The next time Democrats control Congress, they can just add a couple of more liberal justices to the SCOTUS since the Constitution has no limit on the number allowed.

    They've been in power over 50 years on and off and haven't made a dent in abortion. They promise but never deliver. They string along right wing religious conservatives year after year after year after year.

    "Although I am personally against abortion I would never allow my personal feelings to interfere with my solemn duties as a jurist and my responsibility to uphold the Constitution."

    "I don't have to answer that. I won't answer that and you can't ask me that..."

    "I would hope my being a wise Latina woman would give me a richer perspective in making decisions than a white man..."

    Why one Earth would you think all Republicans want to overturn Roe vs. Wade? Just because I am a Republican that does not mean I want to revert to the stone age.

      Republicans SAY they want to overturn Rove vs. Wade, constantly. It's why conservatives VOTE Republican (among other reasons).
