Sotomayor Protester Shouts "Baby Killer" At Hearing (VIDEO)

Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearing was interrupted for the second day in a row by anti-abortion protests, with a man shouting "baby-killer" loudly across the room Tuesday before being removed by security in what was the first protest of the day. On Monday one of the many protests that occurred involved someone shouting "what about the unborn?" during the hearing (Al Franken, meanwhile, suffered a bi-lingual interruption by a protester speaking in both English and Spanish.). Senator Patrick Leahy managed to quickly restore order Tuesday, and spoke about the importance of maintaining decorum.
