   When arguing in favor of the Flag Protection Act, Roberts was acting in his professional capacity. Yet, the American Prospect still characterizes him as "right of Scalia."
   One could make a similar analogy about Jim Doyle. In Doyle v. Planned Parenthood, the 7th circuit(with a majority opinion written by Richard Posner, of all people) struck down the Wisconsin pba ban. Doyle, a Democrat, then AG, and now governor, is pro abortion. He was merely acting in his professional capacity, as with J-Ry in Ryan v Hope Clinic, decided on the same day, in which Illiniois's pba ban was bench-slapped, and in which the ACLU acquired the dubious distinction of being the first entity to lead a successful charge against an abortion ban. What about the amicus briefs in Stenburg v Carhart, though?
