Contributing sentiments towards policy:

51% : "But her most memorable abortion vote came in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in which she joined the 5-4 majority in upholding what the court called the "essential holding" of Roe v. Wade that abortion is a "fundamental right" before an unborn baby is capable of living outside the womb.
36% : O'Connor in her dissent called the court's abortion decisions to that time "a major distortion in the Court's constitutional jurisprudence" and said the majority's decision in the case before it, Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, "makes it painfully clear that no legal rule or doctrine is safe from ad hoc nullification by this Court when an occasion for its application arises in a case involving state regulation of abortion.
31% : O'Connor was replaced by Samuel Alito, who has since become one of the most conservative justices and who wrote the majority decision in Jackson Women's Health Center v. Dobbs, which last year overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
